This is a chain restaurant that takes gluten-free needs very seriously. They make you feel special with a REAL menu dedicated to gluten-free selections, hot gluten free rolls (a rarity!), and a large number of selections. The manager personally brings out your gluten-free meal with the assurance that the order is correctly done. It is a pleasure to eat here.... More

My meal on this visit was a bit disappointing compared to my expectations for Legal Seafood. While the Lobster Bisque was excellent, the Cajun Mahi Mahi was really pretty tasteless.

Excellent fish meal - to-die-for rolls. We visit Legal's frequently and no matter what fish dish, it is always excellent.

We love this place for lunch. Chowder and crusty bread to start is always great. Staff is very friendly and nice atmosphere.

I like a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey with all the trimmings. My in-laws enjoy seafood, as does my wife, while my kids love steak. All six of us came away extremely satisfied with our choices for our 2014 Thanksgiving. My turkey meal came with mashed potatoes, stuffing, squash, cranberry sauce and a plentiful amount of juicy white meat, some... More

We just returned from Thanksgiving here today and all was excellent! A baked stuffed lobster with a shrimp and scallop stuffing (in keeping with Thanksgiving...) that was not too moist, not too dry, just right. Also a Cape Scallop special served in a cream sauce, again an excellent dish with the fragile Cape scallops. All sides (fries, stuffing, snap peas)... More

I was really looking forward to the gumbo at Legal Seafood. When I used to live in Boston, I ate at one of their restaurants at least once a week. Unfortunately, this gumbo was lacked its usual peppery taste and was quite bland.

We have been to this Legal Seafood on more than 5 occasions since moving to the area in 2013. Every time we have booked a table, every time we have arrived when we said and every time we have had to wait for up to 15 minutes for a table. Poor performance by the restaurant.
