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.

Back again, never fails.

I enjoyed the food, service, big fish tank and loved the oysters on half-shell. Their complimentary rolls are legendary. I managed to NOT eat any but rest of party emptied two baskets! Ate 4 times @ different Legal's on this trip.

This restaurant never fails to be a superb spot for us to get together with family when we are in Framingham for a conference, at least twice a year. This time is especially good. We are celebrating my daughter-in-law's birthday, and the staff has been very accomodating allowing us to bring in a special cake since the restaurant had only... More

We had a table for 11 book on the day for dinner and were accommodated without fuss. The food was great and everyone was satisfied. The wait staff was knowledgeable and able to assist with recommendations. I would return if I had the chance.

We were looking for a seafood restaurant while visiting Boston and our hotel recommended Legal Seafood not far away. For a Tuesday night it was surprisingly packed with a 45 minute wait, so we chose to eat in the bar area where a table was available. Unfortunately several menu items were out of stock including mussels, but we wound up... More

I have been enjoying legal seafood since I was a child but no more ! I was so disappointed and would have told someone had they come to ask! We were greeted by a lovely hostess and has a sweet older waiter who was kind! Who quickly took our drink order and was very attentive. That was the best part... More

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.
