“Decent prices, service and seafood selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We have gone here a few times now. Appetizers: Lobster bisque and calamari were very good. My husband had to send back the crab bisque because it was very salty, but it wasn't a problem and the server offered a replacement. They offer a choice of 3 fresh fish specials, cooked however you like, with a choice of sauces. This restaurant is always busy so make sure you have a reservation. TIP: Request a reservation in the dining room, otherwise you might be put in the bar area. The bar area is nice enough but the benches are very uncomfortable. Another TIP: join the captains club for points to be used towards free entrees, coupons, specials and even a free gift certificate on your birthday for $24!

“Nice place, great for seafood lovers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

First things first, make sure you join the email list and loyalty programs. Their coupons, specials, and mailings are OUTSTANDING!

Service is always good. Food is always fresh. I'm a big fan of seafood and I also live close to this restaurant. You wouldn't believe how many shipments of fresh fish arrive! This is a great local place without any major chains, branding, etc. The atmosphere is inviting, the bar area seems cool, and it's a great place to take bigger groups.

“Champagne Dinner was great idea!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

We went to the Chowder House for our 35th wedding anniversary with my parents, our children and our new grandson, Austin. The server was excellent. She was very attentive. At the end of our delicious dinner, we played the fishbowl game and we won a free Champagne Dinner for two! We returned the next week to use our coupon for the free dinner and were pleasantly surprised at the bill the server brought us. $0.00 !!! We both enjoyed our meals. The lobster bisque was its usual deliciousness. I had a New York strip steak with a Lobster Tail. The tail was very tasty - steak done to my likeness. My husband had the tenderloin tips with crabmeat. He said it was very tasty. We always have a great meal there. My husband always says he feels like he is on vacation when we go there. Keep up the great work, Marblehead.

“Awsome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

The food at this place is always great. They do a fantastic job keeping the prices low in an unstable economy. The service was great as well. I will be returning here frequently.

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

A very reliable seafood restaurant. The place is always crowded so don't think of going without a reservation. Closed Sunday, except Mother's Day.
