My husband and I were on our first trip to Boston and had heard from multiple sources we should definitely eat at Legal Seafood. We ended up at the location next to the Aquarium on our second to last night. Our food selections, the Crab Cake combo and Wood Grilled Trio, were fantastic and thoroughly impressed both of us. We both grew up eating a wide variety of seafood in Florida and Louisiana and we agreed this was some of the best we had ever had. The only drawback was the staff of the restaurant. Our waiter took several minutes to even acknowledge our presence and when he did, he was very condescending. He did not tell us any of the specials and it seemed like a second thought to stop and actually take our order in the first place. He never made eye contact and walked away before we finished ordering. Many of the other staff members seemed to have little else better to do than stand around staring rudely at the patrons. Honestly, the staff made us feel very unwelcome and uncomfortable, which was a shame given the fantastic meal they served us. I would recommend trying a different location for this Boston favorite.
