Very welcoming tavern with a good varied menu. Friendly staff and waiters. Good size portions. Nice lobster rolls and baked haddock. Easy to find on one of the main streets. Would highly recommend!

Great bar with good beer/cocktail selection. Friendly bar tenders--great pub food. Also has a dining room--very casual-good seafood at reasonable prices. I especially loce the scallops.

Lovely dining experience with good sandwiches, delicious Caesar salad and outstanding bowl of seafood chowder loaded with cod and shrimp. Service was very pleasant. There was a bar area that was filled with businessmen, but on the other side of a wall so the noise was contained. Friends could have a nice quiet lunch.

Monday through Thursday the restaurant has a terrific specials menu. There were short ribs, a pasta special, baked haddock and a couple of other items. All 3 of us ordered the haddock. One ordered it without crumbs or butter and with no potato. Butternut squash was the vegetable of the day. It was plentiful and tasty. We asked for salads... More

Nice local place. No ocean views but nice atmosphere, cool on a hot night. I hear they have a nice bar but we were in the dining room which was very comfortable. We both ordered the baked haddock, EXCELLENT!! Cooked perfectly. It came with sides. I chose the squash which was the only vegetable offering and coleslaw. The squash was... More

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...
