I don't give our many 5 star ratings, but this place hit the mark. Crab Chips, Seafod Chowder and a Lobster Roll for lunch! Wow. We are coming back.

We've been to Marblehead a number of times. The food and service are consistently very good. We've always opted for seafood of one type or another, and never been disappointed.

As with most long time seafood restaurants, there is a definite fish smell upon entering. It is not offensive and better than smelling cleaning chemicals. Very extensive menu, properly prepared (even it it seems like taking forever) and efficient, friendly service. If you want to dine at a place where the locals "hang," this is it.

We visit the Marblehead Chowder house many times during the year for their good food and quick service. The prices are in the mid-range about $30+ per entree. The loyalty rewards program is a bonus for us since we visit often throughout the year. Occasionally they do some fun prize events and raise money/food for charity.

We had not been to Marblehead in a couple of years so wanted to try it again for our anniversary. Did not disappoint! We had wonderful service and food. I had the chicken pot pie which was awesome. Not sure why we stopped going but will definitely be regulars again.

We are used to excellent meals at Marblehead. My swordfish was very good with Key West spice. The gluten free clams casino were outstanding. However, the prime rib was chewy and on the tough side. Might just have been that specific cut. A bit disappointed, but good overall.

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.
