Outstanding! Service was beyond compare--compliments to James. Clam soup had a treasure of filled shells in it. Reminded me of being down the shore picking up fresh clams. Clams Casino was well toasted for crunchy goodness laced with smokey paprika. Old English-style Fish'n Chips w/...More

Every aspect of our dinner was fantastic! Our table had clams casino, crab pierogies, and crab dip for appetizers. I highly recommend all of them. Our dinner entrees were perfect!

The food was very tasty and the staff was friendly. For lunch you get a nice lunch portion but dinner didn't seem a generous for the cost.

Seniors, sure they like it but so do the rest of us! The food is consistently cooked properly and the new dishes the chef adds compliment the restaurant's standard but by no means mediocre fare.

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.
