No one wants to get lost at sea, but those who have a taste for fun do enjoy long visits in our Framingham restaurant. Beach yourself in our dining room for seafood, rock the boat in our lounge or reel in some fresh catch in our drive-by takeout window. For the home chef, we sell live lobsters to go.

They made it right!

Food was great. They messed up and gave our table to someone else. Went up to reception after waiting 20 minutes past our reservation and reception told us that my reservation in the system said that we had been seated already. Obviously not :) Reception apologized and said they would seat us... read more

Stuffed Lobster was fabulous - a very large portion (because the scallop and shrimp stuffing is a meal in and of itself). Waiter forgot to bring 2d glass of wine. Cheerfully removed it from our bill. Offered a free appetizer on next visit. Comfortable booth. Noisy and happening (not quiet and romantic).

Visited my uncle in Framingham from Ga and wanted to get some clam chowder before I left to go home. Stopped in as soon as they opened for lunch. The starter bread just came out of the oven and was delicious. The chowder was very rich, meaty, and flavorful. The clam strip appetizer was very good. It wasn't like the... More

What can I say, just when you thought it couldn't get any better, I had the best Scallops and Broccoli and Polenta lunch I have every had. Great food and atmosphere. I always look forward to visiting when in the area.

Love seafood. This location has a wonderful menu. I like to compare the same dish at various locations. This turned into one of the best.

Not the best Legal's restaurant. Ordered the "treasures of the reef appetizer. The shellfish on the half shell was very good. The shrimps were adequate (nothing stellar). The half lobster was tough and not juicy (either overcooked or it had been kept in the tank too long before being cooked). Ordered a salad with salmon. Asked about the salmon was... More

This place always gets great review and rightfully so. Hint: If you get there and it is crowded or a long wait, go to the bar area and take a seat. The service is great without the wait. Enjoy

Over the years we have eaten Legal over 300 times. The management changes, the wait staff changes, and the menu changes. But what doesn't change is consistently good food. Yes you get an occasional so so meal. Occasionally you get a great meal but in general if you want good fish this is where you go.
