Went to Marblehead with a group of 6 and everyone enjoyed their food. Courses were delivered promptly. This restaurant has the best Clams Casino around. The tips with crab were a big hit as was the lobster risotto and the 6oz. tails. The Crab Norfolk...More

A truly great experience, with knowledgeable staff and great food. Got us right in even though we didn't have reservations probably because it was just before 5. Recommend you get a reservation during busy times, always a popular place and for good reasons.

In town for the holiday weekend, we saw an ad for Marblehead Chowder House and decided to try it (4 adults, twin girls age 5.) It was awesome! And it was "oyster month" so, naturally, we all had some form of oysters. The raw sampler...More

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.
