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.

Great place.

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!

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.

I had to try a Seafood place while I was in town. Great service, fresh seafood, nice variety of catch of the day items as well. I couldn't decide on one thing, so I got the Seafood Casserole.

The food at legals is always consistently good but value for your money isn't there. I mostly (like this time) go there on business lunches as its convenient for that. For family meals i'd go somewhere else and get better value for my money by a long shot.

This place is overrated. It's not bad, but there are several places I've been to that serve better seafood. One downside is that the seafood isn't fresh, which makes all the difference...

We like the Legal Seafood menu and our nearest restaurant is on route 9 in Framingham. On a previous visit we had a long wait from the time we had booked and being shown to our table - we arrived on time. We went back on a Saturday night, table booked for 7.30pm. We arrived at 7.25pm and were not... More

This was our second time here and I was much happier than my visit 3 years ago. Back then they didn't know how to cook a steak medium well and after 4 times having to sent it back I asked them to filet it and it was done. This time was much much better. The food was wonderful. Dad's fish... More
