Visited twice in one week. Once as a couple, a few nights later with family. Every visit I try a different dish. Never a disappointment. Staff is friendly, food temperature is perfect and taste is great. Does get crowded so make a reservation.

Our first visit to Marblehead won't be our last--the food was amazing and the staff was welcoming!! I loved the salmon dish I had, but the crab pierogies exceeded our expectations. Also, great beer selection for craft beer lovers!!

Comfortable, spacious surroundings. Wait staff extremely attentive and clued in to helping each other. Always seem pleasant and knowledgeable about menu. Servings plentiful for lunch, which is our favorite time to visit. Busy place and definitely worth it.

The setting would be kitsch, if it wasn't so earnest. The service was overly zealous - but that's ok. The prices were extremely high (over 25 for crab cakes) if you read the other reviews about the inexpensive food. The problem was the food. The...More

This is a casual restaurant. In summer shorts and sandals are fine. Even in winter, ties are rare . . . except businessmen at lunch.

Description
To make reservations, please visit us on Open Table! Founded in 1996 the ideas for the Marblehead Chowder House were actually hatched a few years before. Sitting at "The Barnacle," overlooking Marblehead Harbor one raw winter day, while the spume from the rough saltwater painted the windows and the Sam Adams Lager flowed freely, a concept was born. Casual, coastal and cozy - fresh seafood, fin fish, shellfish and hearty chowders in a warm, relaxing atmosphere that says "seaside" - a place that had tradition, patriotism, and a New England heritage about it. Fresh ingredients, house-made soups and chowders, comfort food with a twist freshly prepared to order were all musts! Features unique to New England were the foundation - Ipswich Belly Clams (aka steamers, softshells, pissers), fresh Lobster Roll, a Raw Bar with half-shell oysters and clams and, of course, live Lobsters arriving regularly. Authenticity was crucial - only without the sea breeze, gulls and scent of saltwater. Lighthouses and other nautical decor highlight the ambience to create a coastal dining experience like none other in the greater Lehigh Valley. Our mission is to provide a great place for our employees to work, enabling them to prepare and serve delicious food in a warm, friendly and efficient manner. We want to assure you, our guest, of a memorable visit and encourage you to tell your friends and return often. Your satisfaction is guaranteed or we will make suitable amends.
