If you have a place to go, expect to spend an extremely long time. Went there a few weeks ago, and I had two toddlers with me. We waited 15 minutes for a waitress to come for our drinks. We waited another 30 minutes before they came out with our drinks and bread, and she took our order. We waited 1 hour for our dinners to come out and the fish was stuck to the plate. I spent over $250. there, and it was like throwing it to the wind for the experience we received. The kids were tired of waiting. It wasn't just our table. I noticed the same thing at other tables. They need to train their staff better and to move quicker than a snail. This was my second experience, because I thought the first was just a bad day there. I will not go back. We ended going to Friendly's to get desert, and were served within 10 minutes.

This place came recommended by the people at the hotel in which I was staying. And the reviews I read on City Search were positive. So, this place seemed like a good bet.
I was traveling on business and I was eating by myself. I was greeted cordially, seated quckly, and told that so-and-so would be my server (It was a girl's name. Bear with me - this is part of the story.).
I sat for a good 15 minutes before ANYONE stopped by my table and it was some pre-pubescent kid - not a girl. I'm assuming the girl was too busy (yeah, right) to wait on me. To their credit, the management DID comp my beer to make up for the long wait.
I ordered the cioppino and a dinner salad. Now I've had good cioppino and this was, at best, mediocre. The dinner salad was extremely small and unsatisfying and the portions were not worth what I paid.
Okay, so maybe it was a bad night...or maybe the staff wasn't prepared for a lone diner... Whatever the case, I will not be returning to Marblehead Grille. If YOU choose to go, I hope you have a better experience than I.
this establishment is by far the most comfortable, bright, friendly,hospitible,delicious,clean and homelike that we have had the pleasure of frequenting for many years now. The value and the freshness of the food ,the generous potions from the bar are another reason we keep coming back----just like going home. the chef and the wait staff , the hostesses are tops. thanks to King crab, lady bisque and long John for our HOME away from home. many thanks----george & joan mcguinness
We were very disappointed with our dining experience at the Marblehead Grille. My shrimp cocktail was overcooked resulting in rubbery and dry shrimp. Three of our party of four had the lobster bake. Again, this was overcooked. The mussels had a fishy taste which contaminated the clams and lobster. All were rubbery with no flavor except the fishy residue from the mussels. Melted butter was not served with the bakes. The butter received with this entree was a diluted mixture of the butter and juices from steaming. The fourth party had the Napolean Lobster. He too, was very disappointed. The Velveeta-like cheese melted with the lobster was unattractive as well as unappetizing. I would not recommend this restaurant. Over priced with amateur cooks.
