For Years, Marblehead has lacked really a good sit down restaurant with good seafood and good drinks. Apparently the formula works at three cod because you will get a nice meal. the company/seating is cozy but most folks will be friendly.

The reason I gave this a average rating wasn't because the food was bad I just felt the Mac n cheese I ordered was a little bit much with all the bread crumbs on top which almost made it too much. Others wise there garden salad and corn bread was great!

Its fine but nothing to write home about. Probably the highlight is Tuesday night wing night -- just watch those high schoolers eating away

3 Cods is just around the corner from my office and very handy for a business lunch. They have great lunch specials and the food and service is always good. A real Marblehead atmosphere with a large bar frequented by locals. Nice place for out of town visitors to meet the real Marbleheaders though not on the water.

You know the food will be consistent. Come a few times and you will be recognized and warmly greeting with a " How have you been". Very friendly low key neighborhood place and perfect for watching the current most important sports game, on the bar side, with full menu and high and low tables, if you wish. Dining room side...

This is a true townie spot and I really wanted to like it but the food was not worth it. The mac and cheese tasted like they must use a processed cheese food like Velveeta. The fried foods were bland and all in the same batter. The haddock sandwich was actually cod and not very fresh tasting. The menu looked... More

The Three Cod is a reliable choice when entertaining friends or family and you'd like good seafood. Its family friendly and everyone can find something for them on the wide menu. It has some old time Marblehead Favorites reminiscent of the old "Dill's" days with both broiled and fried fish and shellfish. The chowder is excellent and for the carnivore,... More

We were looking for a local pub to relax with good food and drinks after some holiday shopping and Three Cod Tavern did not disappoint! We sat on the bar side, the food was delicious and the bartender very accommodating. Will definitely go back again.

Three Cod Tavern is warm cozy friendly pub with good food and reasonable prices. It is family friendly (children welcome). Patrons may be served at tables, booths or at the bar (TVs overhead). Moderately priced menu ranges from prime rib specials down to burgers and fish &chips. No ocean view, but the food is good and the locals like it.... More
