“A little above the ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Clam chowder is still one of the best I've had but I believe seafood restaurants have improved their fare so that Legal Seafood is now a good albeit expensive chain seafood restaurant. Sampled several fish dishes and they good but not particularly distnctive or noteworthy. Would still go but not out of my way now that other seafood restaurants have emerged. Service was good, location was convenient to the Residence Inn at Arlington and everyone left satisfied but not delighted.

“Army Ten Miler Run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Had a great time. The staff is very helpful in choosing off of there menu.

A very popular cozy place. The wait on Sunday evening was about twenty minutes. The food was well worth the wait.

Whenever I travel to D.C. from Chicago, I always visit to have the delightful crab cakes and the New England Clam Chowder. The service is friendly and attentive.

“Super Service and Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We had reservations. We came early and was able to be seated. James our server was excellent. He knew his menu and answered all our questions with superb descriptions and suggestions. The well trained staff were extremely sensitive to food allergies to shell fish at our table. Their sensitivity was something I have never experienced before to ensure food safety. The manager delivers the meal to the person with allergies and certifies it is safe. The child menu is a home run.

The Restaurant was located across street from Hilton which was very convenient location. Nice experience.
