A great place if you are travelling on business and you are the lonely "table for one" guy. You can sit at the bar and enjoy great service and sensational food & wine in a buzzing atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Felt the need to write a review after dining at Legal Sea Foods Framingham yesterday for father's day because my experience was nothing shy of perfect. I went for lunch with my wife and her parents to treat them for a nice father's day meal. We were greeted promptly at the front of the store and we were seated within... More

I recently ate at Legal and had the grilled assortment. The dish included swordfish, tuna, salmon, shrimp and scallops! The fish filets were on the smaller side (which the server indicated to me when she recommended it), but it was still more food than I could eat. And I was hungry! It also came with two sides. I chose wild... More

Tasty and fresh seafood! We tried the calamari appetizer, and the shrimp and salmon entrees which were also delicious! We loved the place and definitely recommend to everyone who loves seafood!

We have been customers over the years. This restaurant has presented different phases, probably based on managers, chefs and staffing. This time around it was easy to make a reservation for a party of five on a Friday night. Tyler was our server, he was very attentive and cordial. We ordered clam chowder, fish chowder, lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, sole,... More

Legal Sea Foods is consistently good and does what many other restaurants fail to do - provide good service in a fairly quiet and comfortable atmosphere. Great for business meetings, meeting up with old friends, date night, family gatherings, it's a good, solid option.

You can always count on Legal to have fresh seafood and a good selection of in-season specials. It's a little pricey at night, so if you are looking for value go at lunch time and get a luncheon special. The dinner menu, portions and prices are also available all day. For the non seafood fan, the salads are excellent and... More

I used google map to search the restaurants near the area, this one comes out and has 4 star for yelp review. I tried with their take-out, the steam lobster with baked shrimp & scallop was just fantastic! Plus the New England clam chowder was 100% good. Their seafood is so fresh and tasty. Definitely worth the price.

We are always fans of this Legal. The food is always fresh, and we've found the staff consistently polite and engaging. Most importantly the fish is always fresh and meticulously prepared. The atmosphere and decor is very pleasant. Well done!
