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.

My husband and I eat here once a month, on average, and always sit at the bar. No matter what time of day, there is always a friendly atmosphere and engaging conversation, not to mention the great drinks prepared by Elsie and Deb. Having tried almost everything on the menu, it still takes a while to decide just what to choose next because it is all so good !! We highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

The crab cakes they service are the BEST in the Lehigh Valley and I have eatten may cab cakes all over the world.

The service is GREAT but you need the right servicer some of them are not that experienced and we did have a dinner that did not go very well so ask when making a reservation for a servier that has been there awhile it will make the dinner go smoothly.

Their soups are usually very good if you don't know if you would like a whole cup of the soup ask for a taste of the soup and you can go from there I do it when they have a new soup on the menu that I would like to try. You can also bring home soup or anything that they serve.

Make reservations unless you don't mind waiting until 9:00 P.M. for dinner.

Everything that my husband or I have eaten there has been very good.

Great service, very knowledgeable staff, superb seafood appetizers, entres and daily special selections, we always expect delicious, creative and well prepared seafood. With an excellent selection of fresh fish, oysters, clams, mussels, chowders and appetizers, when we crave seafood prepared with style and served with personality, Marblehead Chowder House is the first place in the Lehigh Valley that comes to mind!
