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.
