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.

Good seafood

My first visit to Legal Seafood. The clam chowder was delicious. My favorite was the fried oysters. My daughter had clams and shrimp. Prices are excessive even charged me for a refill of ice tea. I doubt I would go back.

I have been to Framingham location several times. No complaints about the quality of food. Servers were excellent. Consistently good. Only good surprises. Menu is changed periodically, but always includes traditional favorites.

We've been to this Legal's several times and have never had a bad meal. Yes, it's a bit pricey but you're getting fresh top quality seafood. One of my favorites is the seafood casserole that has bits of lobster, shrimp, scallops and haddock in a cream sauce. Friday nights are very busy so get there early.

I love Legals! As someone with food allergies, dining out can be hazardous and potential lethal. Legals has knowledgeable servers, a vast array of choices, and a pleasant atmosphere .

Can't go wrong with legal but you do pay for what you get. Fish is always fresh, service is quick and professional.

I know this restaurant is a chain and I've eaten in several of them in different places. The one in Framingham is the one I eat at most because it is close to home. Have always gotten an excellent meal with good service. Costly but nice for a special occasion or when you want fresh fish. Also in the summertime... More

Having grown up in Maine and had the pleasure of being raised with seafood, I'm picky. But thankfully LEGAL SEA FOODS is up to the task...especially here in suburbs! I've been going to other Legals for years in the Boston Harbor/Seaport area and have always had wonderful meals. But when I visited the one out here in Framingham, I was... More

Enjoyed a fine lunch at Legal. As expected on a weekday aft. not jammin. Jasmine special was very nice... one shrimp wasn't clean... waiter brought back to kitchen. Manager came over to appologize but no other accomodation... sort of odd for Legal. Otherwise fine as usual.
