Description: To make reservations, please visit us on Open Table! Founded in 1996 the ideas for the Marblehead Chowder House were actually hatched a few years before. Sitting at "The Barnacle," overlooking Marblehead Harbor one raw winter day, while the spume from the rough saltwater painted the windows and the Sam Adams Lager flowed freely, a concept was born. Casual, coastal and cozy - fresh seafood, fin fish, shellfish and hearty chowders in a warm, relaxing atmosphere that says "seaside" - a place that had tradition, patriotism, and a New England heritage about it. Fresh ingredients, house-made soups and chowders, comfort food with a twist freshly prepared to order were all musts! Features unique to New England were the foundation - Ipswich Belly Clams (aka steamers, softshells, pissers), fresh Lobster Roll, a Raw Bar with half-shell oysters and clams and, of course, live Lobsters arriving regularly. Authenticity was crucial - only without the sea breeze, gulls and scent of saltwater. Lighthouses and other nautical decor highlight the ambience to create a coastal dining experience like none other in the greater Lehigh Valley. Our mission is to provide a great place for our employees to work, enabling them to prepare and serve delicious food in a warm, friendly and efficient manner. We want to assure you, our guest, of a memorable visit and encourage you to tell your friends and return often. Your satisfaction is guaranteed or we will make suitable amends.

“Spent our Wedding Anniversary at the Marblehead Grille & Chowder”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Wow great time we had spending our Wedding Anniversary at Marblehead. The service was EXCELLENT and the food was outstanding. But we never had a bad meal at the Marblehead. The crab dinner was great and the chicken pie my husband had was very good. I just can't say enough about this resturant. Very good but I would never go without a reservation, even on the week days they are booked. Very good seafood.

“Marblehead Grille & Chowder.....A great place to enjoy seafood”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

My husband took me out for my birthday for Lobster at Marblehead Grille & Chowder. The service and atmosphere was excellent. Our waitress had a great personality and was very attentive. The Lobster Bisque was smooth and creamy , out of this world. Lobster was delicious. At $24.95 it was a good deal. You got a choice of 2 sides and yummy hot rolls. The drawn butter was served with a candle underneath it to keep it warm and liquified(neat idea). We made reservations which got us in quickly. I even got a rewards card and a $10 certificate from Mother's Day the day before to be used in June. I liked that. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere with nautical theme. Some of the items tend to be a little pricey but they do have specials.

“Excellent in Every Way”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

We visited the Marblehead Grille on May 12th. We have been to this terrific restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. Heather was our waitress during this last visit, and she did an outstanding job. The Crab Norfolk and fresh fish were wonderful. The salad and vegetables are always very fresh; and the new bread sticks are a fine addition. From start to finish, the Marblehead Grille delivers - on quality of food, service, and value.
