Anytime we are in town, we always love stopping by this restaurant! The lunches and dinners we have recieved over the years have always been amazing and well met our expectations. The food is out of this world. I think the service is amazing and there is a fun family friendly atmosphere. It's well worth the money for the quality... More

We haven't visited Marblehead for quite a while and we're pleased to find the place pretty much the same as we have enjoyed it for many years. There have been some excellent additions made to the menu. Service and staff are excellent. Food is superb and generally a fair price. Some offerings have gotten a little pricey and the sizes...

Slow service. Food decent. We had tried several years ago and didn't enjoy at all. Better this time. Wouldn't consider it a fish restaurant though

Marblehead Chowder House has been a favorite local dining destination for my husband and me for many years. The menu offerings are extensive and we have never been disappointed in any selection we've made. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend this Chowder House for a delicious meal!

Always spot on weather you're looking for a more formal dinning experience or prefer the warmth and more causal dinning experience that the Bar pub area offers with the same excellent menu. Lobster Bisque soup is everything advertised to be and more. Great menu but I usually order off of the special board. Delicious and consistent! Always worth the trip!

We met with a former classmate and his wife because of their good reviews of this restaurant. We went for lunch here because of the reviews, but were not impressed with the food. We had salads and mussels as our appetizers. For our entrees we had 3 orders of the crab cakes and the cod special and a baked potato... More

Don't normally think of Easton as a place to get really good seafood, but just goes to show you. The reviews were right. Four of us ate here last night and all the seafood dishes were very good. Will be eating here again.

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.

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.
