When you want to get the true MHead/North Shore of Boston feel that mixes locals and tourists well then stop by Maddie’s. Their extra tall poured cocktails are legendary. Be careful since they can be very strong. The bar itself is small and sometimes cramped...More

We visited Maddie,s sail loft on our visit to Marblehead and we were not disappointed. The menu was varied and the food was excellent. An added benefit was the prices which was really reasonable.

To make a visit to Marblehead complete, you need to go into Maddie's either for the food or drinks or both. The food is consistently good and the drinks are epic! Do yourself a favor and visit Maddie's!

Good food and good drinks in this tinny local bar full of charming locals, at night is funny and crowded, you will enjoy it, it’s the peak of social life in Marblehead.

Maddie's menu has a lot of unique items in addition to standard seafood menu. You can get a full dinner or something lighter like a salad or sandwich. Prices reasonable. Try Lobster or Swordfish BLT !! Mention Marblehead to a sailor anywhere in the world,...More
