To make a visit to Marblehead complete, you need to go into Maddie's either for the food or drinks or both. The food is consistently good and the drinks are epic! Do yourself a favor and visit Maddie's!

Maddie's menu has a lot of unique items in addition to standard seafood menu. You can get a full dinner or something lighter like a salad or sandwich. Prices reasonable. Try Lobster or Swordfish BLT !! Mention Marblehead to a sailor anywhere in the world,...More

Downstairs bar is a local hangout so you know it’s good. Great drinks at low prices good casual food too. The fish taco is really good and cheap. Upstairs has a fireplace and nice dining. Good food but a bit pricey.

Excellent drinks and food! Also, such a historical New England atmosphere. Great Service, had a fun time visiting with the locals. Their Haddock was amazing. Lots of beer choices. Will make you feel like you stepped back in time!

We came here for dinner and had decent service and a decent meal. Everything was adequate maybe even good but definitely not something to brag about and certainly not somewhere we would visit again.
