For $17 I received a piece of swordfish maybe 3 oz. on a good day. On a bed of a smattering of arugula with about 3 cherry tomatoes and maybe 10 kernels of roasted corn. Hardly a meal. The atmosphere was nice, the waiter good but the meal was so skimpy. I was a guest of a friend but if... More

Wonderful as always! The freshest food, great service, not loud at all. I had my team with me and our guest from Mexico City enjoyed his tuna steak very much. My swordfish steak was just perfect. As always, Legal is the best and the food is worth the price you pay. Yes, and it is plenty of free parking.

Service is pretty good, depending on what kind of food you're ordering, sometimes good and sometimes average. We usually bring friends from out of town and experience the New England clam chowdah. It's an okay restaurant once in a while.

I have been visiting Legal Seafoods already for over 24 years but this is my first review on Trip advisor for this restaurant since it has been a while since I visited last time. This site at Framingham was a good experience. I think the major difference with the past is that you have to choose well nowadays otherwise you... More

Although Legal Sea Foods came highly recommended, I found that the food was mediocre at best, with rubbery shrimp amid an insipid casserole. The wait staff and manager tried to accommodate me, but there was no point. I shall not return.

This was great, the service, the meal, the drinks, and dessert. Really top shelf. You must have the strawberry shortcake for dessert, it was melt in your mouth good.

I've been here twice, most recently last week on June 24. We had a party of 9 and our server did a good job of keeping drinks refilled and checking on our table; not an easy task at the prime 7pm dinner time when the restaurant is absolutely packed and loud!! Tough to have a dinner business discussion because it's... More

I dont know if people just expect less now or are content with whatever you serve them as long as you do it with a smile on your face but this resturant is not at all what it used to be. Legal became famous for having great quality fish, decent portions and a great selection - mainly. Last year I... More
