Nice atmosphere
Good food
Attentive staff
Had the chicken pie, very good, a little cold in the middle, not a big deal.
Also had the coconut shrimp, cooked well but tasted like normal shrimp to us, nothing special tbh.
Jambalaya was the main course.
Very tasty, seasoned perfectly, not too spicy but bite to get your attention. Lots of chicken, shrimp & seafood.
Out of our three dishes, I would highly recommend this one.
We will definitely return
We enjoyed the overall experience very much.

No better place to celebrate my birthday. I had the prime rib and my wife had Alaskan cod broiled to perfection. We made our own surf and turf by sharing with each other, our appetizers were also delicious. I had the New England clam chowder and my wife had the lobster bisque which is their signature soup.

Server was very attentive. Food was served at a relaxing pace. Oyster selection was good, and fresh. The pasta dish special had a good amount of spice, great andouille sausage, with chicken and shrimp that was cooked just right.

The service was wonderful! The meal I used to get everytime we went to dinner there was no longer on the menu but they made it for me. It wasn’t as good as it usually is🙁. My husband had the seafood jambalaya & it was really good.

Had another great experience at Marblehead Chowder House. For a place that offers the best in dining experience you can’t go wrong at Marblehead. A table in the bar area was great. Server was both friendly and professional. Food from start to finish was excellent. Thanks for a very nice Birthday dinner experience.

I ordered the seafood augratin and was disappointed. It was listed as shrimp, scallops, and fish. There were 2 shrimp and 1 scallop. The rest was the fish. Not how it usually was in the past.

The service at Marblehead is always excellent! Last night was no exception. Andrew was our waiter and although the restaurant was very busy and he appeared to be handling at least four tables he did an excellent job. He was attentive and remembered any requests we made (extra napkins, to go boxes, etc.). He was very quick with his service.
My prime rib was not quite as good as normal (which is usually excellent) and seemed not as hot as it could have been. Again, the restaurant was very busy. The portion was very generous for the price.

Another great experience. My ginger glazed tuna on crab fried rice was one of the best tuna presentations that I have ever had and my wife’s broiled cod was done to perfection

We were seated at a table in the bar area. Drinks were prompt and server attentive at first. Very disappointed that the menu prices keep climbing and you removed the lump crab cocktail (crab claws are not the same)

This off the beaten path restaurant has an amazingly long menu with a wide array of seafood selections. We were with another couple and everything we ordered was beautifully prepared and delicious. Our waitress was attentive and very personable. Finally, the prices are a bargain!

The service and food continue to be amazing. If you get a chance try the
blackend Salmon with the spicy sauce on top. Excellent pairing. Also
the Whiskey Bread pudding was a perfect end to a perfect meal. Well
