I jumped ship tonight. My server suggested the Seafood Casserole as an alternative to my “go to” Legal Seafood Signature Crabcake Combo. It took a pry bar to switch but the Casserole was piping hot, the breadcrumbs were toasted, and the seafood was succulent and...More

Legal Sea Foods has been around for years. It’s a good restaurant, but very expensive. I’ve eaten there a number of times for special occasions, and always felt one was paying more for the name, rather than the food. The food is good, but the...More

Our new location in Braintree is making a splash. Designed to evoke memories of vintage seafood restaurants, the space offers as many seating options as fish in the sea. Those looking to satisfy any thirst (or hunger) for fun, can choose between our bar, oyster bar or table and booth seating alongside the open kitchen. In warm weather, a glass wall slides back to a large patio. Our menu includes all the Legal Sea Foods classics, but also some specialties of the house that will reel you in. And our late night menu, available Monday through Saturday, begins two hours before close. We're located right off of Route 93 in South Shore Place, across the street from South Shore Plaza.
