As with other Legal locations, this Framingham location offers very good food and service in a convenient Rt. 9 location. Parking can be a little tight in front of the restaurant, but one can generally find lots of space in the well-lighted back of the building. This Legal also seems to do a good amount of take-out business; they have... More

The fish is good, well prepared and usually fresh. The ambience is nice. Booths are better for conversation. Wait staff friendly and efficient.

Whenever my wife and I get a kid free night out one of the places we often go is Legal Seafood in Framingham. We always sit at the bar and receive exceptional service from the bar staff. The prices are a little on the high side, but the food is always great. I have never had a meal I didn't... More

Legal seafoods is an expensive restaurant, but one that offers a wonderful meal with, as the name suggests, many seafood specialties.

Legal is known for their great seafood and it is great. It's a little expensive. If you like oysters though they have a great 6 oysters for $6 at the bar. Not sure if hours but def worth it. Great atmosphere.

I have had many a business dinner at Legal's and its always a great meal. I bring my out of town guest to Legal where they can get fresh fish, which Legal and Boston are known for! The restaurant can be a little bit on the noisy side, as its always jammed packed. The bar is also a nice place... More

Sat in the lounge for lunch doing some work and Amber was my server. She was friendly and attentive and I appreciated her letting me camp out over lunch. Legal's has consistently fresh seafood and service in my experience at several locations - it's no wonder they have been a successful business all these years. I had the sciracha popcorn... More

The seafood, although pricey, was very good. We had 6:15 pm reservations on a Sat. night; the place was mobbed. When we got there, someone was asking how long a wait there was if you did not have a reservation. It was an hour and a half, and we saw people waiting! My sister-in-law enjoyed a cup of their "Lite... More

I was in the Natick area on business and was told this place was great. The seafood was really good. They were pretty busy that night but the wait staff kept up and I really enjoyed myself. I would recommend it to anybody.

My co-worker and I came here for $1 oysters during happy hour, 4-6pm. Service was super slow even though it was really empty. Although the deal was for a limited oyster selection, this place only offered the NY Long Island oysters for the $1 deal. The oysters were fresh and delectable though some were sandy and not cleaned very well.... More
