Good food but starting to feel like a chain

A good experience with fresh seafood and good service. A bit pricey for the quantity. Also the restaurant is starting to feel like a chain and not a part of its history.

First off, I like Legals. It is what it is, but you can usually count on decent food, nothing fancy, very safe. We arrive Tuesday night around 6 PM, and it's crowded. I go up to where there are two hostesses and ask Hostess A for a table for two. "Do you have reservations?" "No, sorry, but I'll sit anywhere,... More

My date and I went to Legal Sea Foods on 7/6/15. I have never been to this chain but my date has been before and recommended it. Good call on her part. We walked in and it was PACKED. Glad I made a reservation. The crowd was primarily professional people after work, but the dress was very casual (shorts, polo... More

I was recently in the Wellesley area from Michigan, traveling back to the hotel, and by happenstance stumbled upon this restaurant via a waypoint in GPS from two years ago. I arrived with 15 minutes of closing, yet the crew welcomed me, set me up with a fantastic bar menu and we had nice conversations and it was a welcome... More

There were many choices on the menu. The presentation was great. The quality of the fish dishes was excellent . The service was very good. We were able to eat and talk without feeling rushed.

Legal Seafoods 50 Worcester Rd Framingham, MA (508) 766-0600 www.legalseafoods.com It is my practice , confirmed by too many tasteless, cold meals I avoid chain restaurants. Legal Seafoods is the exception. Every time, I go there the food is hot tasty and a good value and most of all the fish is fresh. LegalSeafoods is moderately priced the average entrée... More

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.
