Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Get reeled in to our U-shaped bar or wood-paneled dining room. Those traveling to and from Cape Cod on Route 93 are known to make a stopover for seafood. And not to be missed: two monumental fish tanks in our restaurant, one fresh water and one salt water. 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.

“For your Seafood craving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Had to get my New England seafood fix while back in the United States and this was the perfect place for it. The service was excellent and when combined with the best fresh seafood, the experience was wonderful! The menu included a wide selection of local New England beers and all types of seafood. It was the perfect location for our family dinner.

“Consistently good in food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This has become our regular stop with visits at least twice a month if not more. It is one of the few locations that provide consistently good service and food.

“$1.00 Oysters!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Legals runs a $1.00 oyster special Mon- Thurs from 3-6. We stopped there after shopping and enjoyed a few dozen, as well as their famous chowder. The oysters were delicious and very fresh. Our server was gracious and sweet. It was quite a treat!
