We had early reservations for dinner. Our server rushed us through our dinner. Food was not as hot as it should have been. A bit of a disappointment for us as we quite frequently dine at Legal and always enjoy our meal.

Across the street from the former mall location. Food was excellent. It came out fast, was perfectly cooked and seasoned -- and was nice and hot. Amazing how well running the restaurant was given it was only opened a week before. We will be back!!!

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.
