The Cod is a favorite gathering place for locals. The servings are generous and the food is very good.

This classic local fare -- Baked Haddock -- is pretty well the best thing on the menu, unless you like fish tacos. Onion rings are a good starter, if a little greasy. Otherwise, just another local resto with big portions of a generally ho-hum menu. Bar is not a "scene" but a bunch of locals seem to hang here and... More

Marblehead is kind of tough on a Monday night, so one of the few places open was the 3 Cod. It's on one of the main streets through the town, so fairly easy find and with plenty of parking on the street. We ended up sitting in the bar area at a high top. Some hockey (the bean pot) was... More

I eat there every time I return to the Boston area. The Oyster Chowder, Lobster rolls are to die for. Onion rings are made there and wonderful. Have one of Chip's famous Bloody Mary's but not too many!!

This restaurant in downtown historic Marblehead has an awesome bar with the most attentive and friendly staff. The menu has something for everyone and the chef is very good about special requests and accommodations. This place has some of the best quality seafood around! And if you are looking for some classic Marblehead drinks (notorious for being extra strong)...they do... More

My husband and I frequently visit the three cod tavern. We were lucky enough to get our favorite waiter David. He is very attentive, even when he is the only waiter on , he makes sure you are well taken care of. The hostess/manager Colleen was very friendly and accommodating as well. We started our "whip" started with the calamari... More

The menu is varied, including a veggie burger for the non-seafood/meat eaters. They fry food very well, including the sliced pickles offered with a perfect amount of heat. The servers are pleasant. The dining room is not trendy but very cozy. The only thing I really have a hard time getting past and have had to take this into consideration... More

I was visiting my sister in town and decided to stop in the Three Cod for lunch. My wife and I split a salad and a sea food plate. Huge plate of food and fish all cooked perfectly. I will always find my way here when visiting Marblehead.

We enjoyed a quiet dinner with excellent, friendly service in the dining room. Great place to relax! Their short ribs (a special that night) were just melt-in-your-mouth good!
