Traveling along the coast, we asked around and were sent to The Barnacle. Thanks stranger!
We were seated on the smallish deck overlooking the harbor on a sunny autumn day.....couldn't be better. Needless to say, the scallops and fish and chips were a great compliment to the day.
Stop in.....you'll have no regrets.

This restaurant was very conveniently located near a house my husband and I rented in Marblehead. The view was amazing. The food was not as good as The Landing up the street, and the prices were high for the quality of the food. However, the coffee and kahlua I had for dessert was the best I have ever had. I would return, but maybe just for coffee or drinks to relax with the view.

This is a very small restaurant located on the harbor in the "Old Town" section of Marblehead. It has a tiny bar area that is always crowded, so they must be doing something right. The restaurant has good food, the service is friendly & efficient, & the location can't be beat. The views are great if you can get a table outside on a nice day. Lots of activity to see in Marblehead Harbor.

One of the "ethnic" restaurants in Marblehead,with a fine history, and spectacular view of Marblehead Harbor. Great Mussels, and Fish and Chips, plus other fish foods. Burgers and hot dogs available too.
