Heard many good things about the Chowder House and finally got there to try them out. I have to say all the things we heard are true. Excellant food all cooked to perfection. My crab dish was the best.

We arrived at the Marblehead about fifteen minutes before schedule. We were greeted with a smile, and it's so nice to see you. We were seated immediately. A very nice young man named Ryan was our waiter. Every waiter and waitress are very special people. They go out of their way to make sure you have the very best dinner... More

My husband and I love this place. It is more of an old fashioned family style seafood restaurant than a trendy stuffy restaurant. Food is never a letdown. Service is always friendly and their cocktails are affordable and very well done. We have went as a couple and have taken our two kids here with no problem. Most that come... More

Always good seafood for Pa. we own a condo in Myrtle Beach where the seafood is fresh off the boat so we always compare places to our favorites down south. Marblehead is very close to our fav.

First time there and really enjoyed it. Food was good, staff friendly & prices were reasonable. It's quirky which is why we liked it. Nautical decor. The specials are on a chalkboard brought to your table & placed on a chair & explained. Looking forward to going back.

We were at the restaurant on a busy Saturday night but the service was good and fast. We have eaten at the Marblehead many times and have always enjoyed the food. My only regret is they no longer serve their Jambalaya.

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.
