    Food was very good and service (Sharon) was excellent. We had reservations for 6:15pm and were seated as soon as we we entered. I thought the price of the meal was reasonable for the current economy . My compliments to the owners/manager for not gouging the public.

    This is our go to place for seafood. Although inflation has struck here like everywhere else the quality has not suffered, so it's not too bad. The food is always delicious: clams casino - best in the area, stuffed shrimp are the real deal, crab fried rice - wife's favorite. Even the sides are top notch.

    I am a regular patron for many years. Always satisfied with food and service. I enjoyed the Cod, and my spouse enjoyed the Scallops. My regular is usually the salmon, and for lunches, I enjoy the Seafood Quiches. Their rewards system is excellent and fun to receive your certificates for birthdays and anniversaries.

    This is a restaurant with very good food, excellent service, and a very good value. The ambience was quiet because we were there on a Tuesday at noon. I brought our company team of 5 people and I think everyone was very satisfied with our meal and the atmosphere. It was a very nice experience.

    Nothing but great food and a homey atmosphere anytime we visit. And as always, you can’t beat the lobster bisque, with the sherry of course! Always look forward to stopping in, sometimes just for a drink and to say hi the bartenders!

    had a reservation but still had to wait 20 minutes. Food was absolutely bland. Had oysters, no flavor. Asked the waiter for the most popular dish, he said the crab cakes, again absolutely no flavor. Said full bar on the website, but the wine selection was pitiful. only a few choices and all very low end. I have no idea how this restaurant is rated above both Ocean and The Oak also in the Easton area. Ruined a planned nice date nite out.

    Marblehead Chowder HouseResponded on November 26, 2022Good afternoon Elliot, We appreciate your feedback and would be happy to recommend a few very flavorful dishes like our Blackened Tuna with Jamaican Relish or our Shrimp & Scallops w/Lobster Risotto. The items that you selected (shucked oysters and lump crab cakes) are served in a more traditional way that allows the fresh seafood to be enjoyed as the main flavor. We certainly thank you for giving our restaurant a try.

    This well established restaurant is a seafood institution right in the Easton area. I have been coming here for years and Marblehead never fails to blow me away with terrific seafood, original dishes and seasonal specialties, and outstanding prompt service! From my understanding, they fly their fresh catch in daily from Marblehead, MA. The freshness is evident. One big suggestion, this place has been discovered. It is "out the door busy" for dinner most evenings. Make sure to book reservations on any evening you plan on coming, even midweek. You most certainly will not be disappointed!

    The food overall was good. I had the lobster bisque (with shot of sherry, is delicious) as well as the New England Clam Choder. The crab cakes are 99%crab, barely any filler. The crab fried rice was to DIE FOR! Lot's of fresh ingredients. I didn't give 5 stars for food because I had the lobster risotto and have had much better elsewhere so I was a little disappointed with that but it was still tasty. Overall, I joined the club as I will be a regular patron!

    Another very enjoyable dinner at Marblehead Chowder House. Couple glitches. One being our server forgot to put our dinner order in. She came by and gave us two cards for complementary soup/bisque on our next visit. Second glitch was when I found shards of white plastic in my drink special. A couple reps (including the bartender) looked at them and decided they were shards of white plastic from some source unknown. They provided a new drink without delay. Apps and salads were very good, and our mains were great. The mains were piping hot because they came right out when they were completed. Server was good and we have no complaints. We will return.
