We always go to Maddies during the Marblehead Christmas Walk and we are never disappointed! Love the atmosphere...casual and intimate..I always feel like Im in someone's home. I got the lobster blt because I was intrigued...it was delish...such a treat! Their hand cut onion rings are perfect. Waitstaff helpful and friendly.

We have visited Maddie's Sail Loft (upstairs) in our past visits to Marblehead it was a great local restaurant. This past Halloween week we returned to Marblehead and visited Maddie's twice ( a Saturday night and a Thursday night). On both occasions they were busy, real busy. Service was great and food as well. It was worth the wait. This... More

This place is so good we went twice. Service is great and food is even better! If you do not get there early you will wait. This use to be just a little local joint but thanks to word of mouth and this web page it is now a hot spot. I truly loved this place.

We were looking for a few after dinner drinks after having dinner at Jack-Tar Tavern. The waiter suggested Maddie's Sail Loft close by.....so we decided to try it. The be fair, we only went into the bar and had drinks so this review doesn't include the food menu. Maddie's bar is a good drinking place. It seemed like most of... More

Our hosts at The Maverick B&B in Marblehead recommended we dine at Maddie's (Topside) and what a good suggestion it was - we'll be talking about our fabulous meal for some time to come! It's a toss-up which was better: the grilled scallops with lobster risotto and asparagus or the seafood and shellfish medley in a light tomato broth or... More

We hadn't been to Maddie's in years. Our 50th High School Reunion committee arranged a brunch there yesterday. It was a beautiful sunny day, but quite dark and gloomy upstairs in the restaurant. Great Bloodt Mary, though, and the best chees and bacon omelet I have ever had. Maddie's is a slice of Marblehead history, so ignore the dark and... More

I'm a big fan if Maddie's. The decor looks the same now as it did in the '70s when I was a kid, but that's part of the charm. The owner who purchased the restaurant several years ago has done a wonderful job of maintaining a high level of quality in the food. One can always get a great (and... More

We enjoy the friendly atmosphere and quick service and especially the food every time we go. And one other tidbit. The drinks are very fulfilling.

My husband and I, longing to see the ocean before the end of summer, decided to explore Marblehead, as I'd always loved the town when last in the area 30 years ago. So very disappointed. What used to be a quaint and real seaside village has become sort of a private enclave for wealthy people from New York and Connecticut.... More
