Hotspot for decades! Great food upstairs and sailor party down. Dock your boat down the street and follow the regulars.

A tradition in Marblehead, Maddie's serves great seafood, steak, and pasta dishes. Went with a group of five recently and everyone loved their meal. Busy with locals year round and a "destination" for tourists. No water view but close to the harbor.

Maddies give you a very good meal for a good price. The atmosphere is very relaxed too. Drinks give a bang for the buck too.

While visiting family we decided to dine out on a Monday, which left few choices. Maddie's was suggested and luckily open. Service is mostly by younger staff with limited knowledge of the menu. Food was average cafe/bar food with a decent variety. I wasn't feeling the fish options and elected to try the chicken parm. It was served with a... More

Ever since moving to MHD friends have inquired "have you been to Maddies yet?" We have found Maddies to be a great gathering place for locals and visitors as well. The service is friendly and attentive and the food is excellent with a pretty extensive menu. We have now frequented Matties three times and have enjoyed each visit.

Just landed in MA yesterday and drove to the beautiful Marblehead to chill for three days before going in to Boston. We were shattered after 19hrs travelling and decided to just have some appetisers and a couple of beers before bed. So we chose Maddie's bar. The place is clean and well kept. The clam chowder was creamy and full... More

Since I was born and raised in Marblehead, I'm very familiar with Maddy's. I've been coming here forever and highly recommend it to all for great drinks, food and service. The drinks are generous and potent and the food is great. The downstairs is a terrific local bar with booths and the upstairs has a bar and dining area with... More

I had heard about the lobster roll and had to try it. Sure it comes on a simple bun that was okay, it was loaded with large chunks of lobster and not over-powering dressing. For the money one of the better lobster rolls + add an inexpensive PBR and this was a fantastic lunch.

We LOVE Maddie's!! Who doesn't?! It's comfort all american food. I love the ravioli over butternut squash and grilled chicken in a cream sauce. My husband loves the ribeye. Always great! As far as the booze - be prepared. They are strong and full. The glass of wine comes filled to the brim, the mixed drinks are super potent. What's... More

Went to Maddie's with 2 friends who were visiting from out of town. Two of us had the BAKED haddock sandwich . It came with a buttered, toasted roll. I had mine on the side. They let me substitute a salad for the fries for $1 more and gave us delicious tartar sauce. My other friend had the fried haddock... More
