Marblehead is a solid, consistent performer when it comes to seafood dinners and great hospitality. The food is consistently great, fresh and it is always served with a smile. It's been a bit of a while since we last were there, but the quality is the same as always.

The dinner we had at Marblehead was very good. The fish chowder is excellent. The salad was great, not just plain lettuce. The crab cakes were definitely jumbo lump meat with very little filler. They could use a bit more seasoning, but would still order again. This is our second visit, and will go back again.

It had been a while since we had been in to Marblehead. It remains one of our favorite restaurants in the area and our go-to fish place. Not much more to say, as I have reviewed the place before. I continue to enjoy my meals at Marblehead. It is a fun atmosphere and all the extras and bonus they have... More

Always a busy restaurant but the service is excellent and some things on the menu are very, very good. However, the amount of food does not justify the prices. We were disappointed on that particular day.

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.
