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.

“A "shore" thing!”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

This is a can't miss restaurant. Being a customer for many years, I highly recommend it for that "at the shore" atmosphere and top notch seafood.

“One of the best!”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

The seafood is so fresh and delicious at the Marblehead Chowder House that you would think they were located within walking distance of the Atlantic Ocean! And this conclusion was drawn after numerous visits, not one visit. Obviously, we recommend it highly.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

We just love the Marblehead Chowder House! The hot crab dip appetizer with fresh veggies was AMAZING! It was like nothing I have ever tasted before! My husband got the crab cakes which he said were awesome and I got the chicken pot pie. Hands down, the best chicken pot pie I have ever had! The crust was so tasty and the filling so delicious! We will come back and back to this wonderful restaurant!

“even bad weather (snow) doesn't take away from the excellence here”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

It was my husband's birthday and he wanted oysters on this snowy evening - called and made a reservation and headed out into the cold blustery night. Food was excellent, service beyond compare. We were seated in a cozy little corner in the bar and had the best seats in the house.
The waitress/server was very attentive. I know that this place must be doing something right because you have to book way far in advance for a Friday or Saturday night.
