Restaurants in & around Marblehead
I'm meeting a friend of mine over in Marblehead this weekend. Can anyone recommend a good restaurant for us to try out? Neither one of us is vegetarian & I love seafood.
I'm not really familiar with the area either so directions would be good from off 128N. I've been up to the North Shore but haven't ventured into Marblehead really.
Any recommendations would be great. Thanks!

A very late answer about eating in Marblehead: there is a restaurant on the harbor, The Landing, that has good enough food. It's biggest advantage is location; on the water. Call and make reservations. It can be pricey but has a pub area also. There is very little parking there so plan on taking time to drive around to find a place to park.
For great views of the ocean and Boston in the distance, go down the road a bit (south on Atlantic Avenue or Humphrey St.) to Swampscott restaurants The Red Rock or Anthony's. Anthony's has the best parking and the decor is a bit formal. Red Rock less so but still has attentive waiters and a stunning view.
Getting to Marblehead from 128 is something I don't want to attempt. Best to go to Mapquest.

Correction: Anthony's is 'Hawthorne by the Sea' and I referred to it as Anthony's because it belongs to the Anthony Athanas family (as in Anthony's Pier 4).
Thanks, Kathy! The next time I go to Marblehead I will keep these restaurants in mind. Much appreciated. :)
Travel Tips for Marblehead
Salty old Marblehead
"Never enough time to really investigate"
Marblehead is a seaside town filled with wonderful 17th and 18th century homes , some interesting shops, a couple of sweet parks, rocky cliffs, beautiful coastline and harbors filled with pleasurecraft. It doesn't give you the feeling that there are any working fishermen around the way Gloucester and even Rockport have. This is more the town of seaside pleasures nowadays. Probably the finer homes are owned by the execs who take the commuter train out of Boston to their little shangrila on the North Shore.
The streets are narrow, parking is horrendous, traffic is tough getting from Rte. 128 through Salem and then into Marblehead. However if you are a true old salt... or a lover of early American architecture. . . Marblehead shouldn't be missed. One day I'll spend enough time to get all the inside scoop for you.
