Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Seafood Nation loves our outpost in Peabody, at the junction of Routes 128 and 114. Those traveling to and from the beaches in Cape Ann are known to jump ship for some fresh catch. And those considering a fishing trip, visit us instead. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker. We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Boston Phoenix, 2009) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

I've never tried this Legal's but it was near my hotel. The quality was consistent with the original down-town location. I love the lobster casserole - one of my all time favorite dishes in the world.

I've been coming to various Legal Sea foods since it opened in Boston when I was a kid. Always fresh, good quality and consistently good no matter where you go. It's a bit pricey but you always know what you're going to get.

I got a dish with Jasmine rice. There had to have been 1 pound of cheese melted over rice and garnished with broccoli. Now, this normally would be fine, but I paid $17 for this dish. Anyone with a rice cooker and microwave could make, and that is exactly what it tasted like. The wife got a shrimp dish. The... More

The blackened raw tuna sashimi appetizer and blue cheese wedge salad were fabulous! I would highly recommend both. And the warm rolls are always yummy!

Now they have a complete gluten free menu that is extensive and the food is the best tasting food for gluten free you will find. the gluten free rolls are really... More

We had been eating at Legal Seafood every now and then. Last week, we went to the Legal Seafood in Burlington mall. We had sashimi, raw oysters and other fish and shrimp dishes. We all happy with our dishes. The food was tasty and fresh. But it was a little pricy.

Went to Legal's Sea Foods -- located at the Northshore Mall in Peabody, MA -- for a fresh fish lunch the other day, looking forward to the same usual and delicious stand-bys I have come to expect from Legal's: clam chowder, fish and chips with cole slaw, a cuppa tea, etc. Decided to try a fish sandwich, for a change,...

Sat at the bar with a friend and had cocktails with some oysters and mussels; all good- The menu calls the oyster "Oysters Legal," breaded, and the mussels in garlic sauce were fabulous!

Mother turned 90 years of age. Me 63. We both had the Cioppino. Just fabulous. She ate the whole thing, rice & bread also. Even the waiter complimented her on her great apatite. She commented back " no trouble when it's this darned good. Can't wait to go there & have the Cioppino again, soon. Great job Legal staff.
