Had lunch there yesterday. As usual food and service was excellent. Their fish is always fresh and prepared perfectly. It's my first choice for a seafood restaurant.

This was my first time at this restaurant. I saw the good rating on trip advisor and thought I would give it a shot while I was in Easton. This is some of the best seafood that I ever found. There appears to be a lot of levels that hang out of this place. The service was fantastic, the servers... More

Went to dinner here with friends on Saturday, 01/28/2017. Glad we made reservations, the place was packed! This was our first time dinning here, and we were not disappointed! There is ample parking, but it was very busy! I would suggest calling ahead for reservations. Dress is nice/casual, and although it was very busy, it seemed very quiet. There were... More

Everything about the Marblehead Grill is Great! The food was Great! The Service was Great! The atmosphere was Great! The interior and exterior or Marble Head resembles that of a New England Chowder House. That was the owner's intention. The menu offers many fresh seafood entrees. Make sure you reserve your table. The Marblehead is a delight. Dress is casual... More

We tried this nearby restaurant after years of passing by in the neighborhood. For starters we ordered the crab chips and lobster bisque soup. Both the appetizer and soup were excellent. The bisque was the best I've had, absolutely terrific and great value at $5.95. Then the meals. I ordered the crab cakes and my wife the Sam Adams battered... More

Met some friends for dinner on Saturday night. Our waitress, Amy, was very attentive and gave us great service. The food was superb; all 4 of us loved our entrees. A very wide selection of seafood, chicken, steak, etc. The crab cakes were loaded with real crab and were excellent! The desserts were awesome too. Can't wait to go back.

We went to Marblehead to celebrate our 49th anniversary. Our dinners were so good! I had crab cakes and they were all crab meat - only enough filler to hold them together! The staff,as usual, was so pleasant and attentive. Marblehead is our "go to" place for celebrations. We've never had a bad experience, and we've been going there for... More

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.
