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.

Legal Seafood makes "consistently outstanding" seem easy. Bluefish is not popular with many folks but once in a while I get a craving for it. Reminds me of being a kid when it was what my family could afford. Ordered it blackened with a baked potato & broccoli. PERFECT! And the Mai Tai was delicious. If you're visiting the Boston... More

Had what was probably the best lobster I've had in years and years. Haven't been to Legal Sea Foods for quite a while and was blown away how good my lobster was. My wife had the ciopinno, which was also excellent.

I have been going to Legal for many years in Peabody, in Cambridge and Lynnfield and I have never had a bad meal. The seafood is always excellent. Service is great and there is an extensive wine list as well as a flight of wine samples.

We went for dinner on a Saturday evening with our friends! We sat in a quiet round booth in the back of the restaurant. The service was outstanding! One member of the party required gluten free food. She had no problem finding plenty of delicious selections on their gluten free menu. We split a dinner and we both received our... More

I was by myself but received great service. Unlike the ones in Boston, this was not very crowded and the food was just as good. In a mall but with its own entrance outside and easy parking.

5 adults for lunch, the food was excellent, service professional and helpful, big servings. We had fish and chips, grilled trout and three of us enjoyed the soft shell crab BLT sandwiches. I have not had a soft shell crab sandwich for 20 years when I used to have them on the waterfront in Baltimore and they were as good... More

Thanks Legal Sea Foods. Apparently you never disappoint! Went for a last minute dinner at the Peabody location at North Shore Mall. The food was excellent--cannot stop raving about lobster bisque, mixed grilled seafood platter and crab cakes--yum!...all crab, delicate flavor, slight hint of mustard. What was going to be a last minute meal became a great dining experience. Thanks.... More

Legal Seafood at the North Shore Mall is a large, casual and comfortable restaurant. Service is very good, but the reason to come is the seafood, which is excellent. I recommend almost any of the seafood dishes, and the famous clam chowder remains first rate.

My husband and I went there for dinner one night after shopping in the Mall. The only reason we went was because we had a gift certificate. The restaurant had Nice atmosphere, but it is way over priced, even for seafood! The food was okay, but tasted like they hadn't changed the oil when cooking, and/or cooked everything in the... More
