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.

Legal Seafoods certainly evolved over the years. I remember when it was just a simple restaurant serving good seafood. Now it has become an eclectic attraction where it seems trendy to be at. The Decore at this location is very nice is diametrically different than what you would expect a seafood restaurant to look like. I ate at the bar... More

We had the mussels and clam chowder for the appetizer. What I didnt like is that we had to wait 20 minutes to get our appetizers. Then we had crispy fried haddock and cod and grilled haddock for our entree. Overall, it was okay.

We love this Legal Seafoods. Most Legal locations are very good and consistent, but this one is especially good as it fills a big void for the area. Lobsters were excellent, sides perfect and served hot... shrimp cocktail (they have the best) as a starter made for a really great meal.

My husband and I along with family members have dined at Legal Sea Foods many times. Each time the service is wonderful and the food is delicious and fresh. During this last visit for lunch, my father in law had rainbow trout and he raved about it. Others had fish tacos, chowder and salmon and their dishes were equally as... More
