One of our favorite places to eat. Always great food and great service and we were not disappointed. It was of the nights they were running their special discounts on top of the "red envelope" surprises. How can you go wrong??!!
We will always be back and certain to bring others with us!

From the calamari app to the rock port scallops special everything was delicious. Lobster bisque was amazing as always! The fishbowl toss was fun to win prizes as well.

Excellent seafood restaurant. I felt I was right on the dock. The menu is outstanding. This is not a negative but want to warn there is a lot of butter. The Lobster was fantastic. There was a dark butter they had and it was different and really good.

We had a great meal and the service was wonderful. Was a little nervous because our reservation was late (9:45), but they were still open and they did not rush us at all. Highly recommend this for seafood or a special occasion.

Thanks to the staff! I dropped my house keys under the table when we left. They were quick enough to find them, check my reservation for my number and called me before I even got home! So glad, I would never have known where they were! The service was excellent and the food was tasty! We will be back!

I took my wife to have a nice dinner. The food was just not what I expected, It was more like dinner food. I had the seafood Au gratin and it was the seafood on the bottom with cheese melted on top, lots of waster in the bottom of the dish. We both had the Lobster Bisque, it was good but more like tomato soup with cheese, again it was good but not what I would expect from this type of place. I also had Clams Casino they were tasty and my wife had the Crab dip, The toast served with it was hard and broke apart when you tried to bite it. Wife had Salmon baked it crust, again just ok.

We revived a tradition with friends by going out to a fun restaurant for Valentine's Day. The Marblehead Chowder House met all of our requirements for a fun evening: quick service, great food, fun atmosphere, and no pressure to leave! The shrimp brocali alfredo was tremendous! The crab au gratin was rated the best our friends had had, and the crab-stuffed shrimp were outstanding! The only disappointment was that they don't serve Blueberry Cobbler in the winter even though it is on their website! Sorry, apple crisp is not a suitable replacement. But we will be back again!
