“Typical Legal Sea Foods Menu, well prepared”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Having eaten in Legal Sea Foods in New York and in Boston I found the menus the same and the food well prepared as always. The low calorie clam chowder was excellent, loads of claims and vegetables was flavorful and tasty without the usual cream base. The broiled fisherman's platter was delicious, the fish was cooked perfectly. My friend had Salmon which was undercooked and had to send it back. It came back cooked correctly. The wait staff was friendly, do not rush you, answered all questions. The wine I had was a Sancerre and it was a great choice. It was a pleasurable dining experience.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I really enjoyed my visit to the Crystal City Legal Sea Foods. I ordered from the gluten free menu and had fried shrimp. The food was well prepared and was hot and crispy when it arrived. Our server was very, prompt, attentive and pleasant. The other members of my group ordered from the regular menu. They were all happy with their food. Of the Legal Sea Foods I have visited this one was the best.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

It's a chain restaurant but the food is consistently good no matter which one you visit. It's not "out of this world" but the food is very good and well-prepared. The service is a tad above average.

A waiting half-hour, but not to worry. Sit at the bar and enjoy dinner and drinks. We ordered dinner, they gave us an order of mussels with compliments.
