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.

“Excellent Filet mignon”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

My wife and I live in Palmer township and love to dine at the Marblehead. My wife is Gluten Free and I need to watch my calories. A great dish we have found is the Filet mignon. It is both Gluten free and low in Weight Watchers points. It comes with a salad, bread (only for me) and a tasty baked potato. We've ordered this dish numerous times and the quality of the beef is consistant and tasty!

“Great family atmophere”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We come here often and always find food and service to be very good! I had the Lobster Daze special, and the lobster was very fresh and tasty. My husband ordered the sockeye salmon which he said was also very tasty. Our son is not a seafood fan, but was very happy with a steak. If you become a rewards member, they offer lots of rewards, coupons, making it an even better value. Be sure to make a reservation, as they book up quickly especially when they are running a special. We will certainly be back soon.

“Excellent seafood”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Best seafood in pa very reminiscent of restaurants in coastal NH and MA. We'll definitely visit again. My husband loved the hot lobster roll sandwich. Nice twist on a favorite. It is worth the 1 hour drive to and from for dinner. This wasrour second visit but not our last!

“Marblehead Chowder House Overrated”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

We tried this restaurant again since our last visit about two years ago. This place is currently ranked number one in a town filled with many truly great restaurants. Unfortunately, Marblehead did not live up to the TripAdvisor reputation. Don't get me wrong, it was decent but it is definitely not a 5 Star dining experience. Their prices are inexpensive and the portions are generous. I think it would be a very good choice for a large group of people to go for dinner. I am guessing they are the primary reasons for this place being ranked as the number one restaurant in Easton. There are certainly better choices in Easton, PA to enjoy a true 5 Star dining experience.
