We usually go on Sundays and eat at the bar. The bar staff is always very friendly and efficient. In the many times we have eaten here I only have had one dish I wasn't happy with. The fried clams, shrimp and oysters are crispy and good. The cauliflower appetizer is very tasty. the oysters are always freshly opened. Sautéed... More

You can always count on Legal for their consistency. Great fish and sides, efficient service, good wine selection. If you are there for lunch try the fish tacos!

The fish is fresh and the quality is consistent. The prices are somewhat high for what it is. If you are looking for innovative or original cuisine, this is not where you want to go. If you want a good piece of broiled fish for about $25-30 with no surprises, and a pleasant wait staff, this is your place.

Not cheap but worth the cost. The staff was friendly and efficient, though the food took quite awhile to come out. Worth the wait, though! We had the salmon which was delicious and perfectly cooked, along with baked stuffed lobster which was fantastic. Very pricy but worth it--the seafood stuffing was full of huge pieces of shrimp and scallop--though I... More

Love the sweet and petite fried clams. Always good quality. Always pleasant wait staff. We prefer booth in the back and almost always available.

Legal Sea Foods is a basic staple in the greater Boston area. The food is pretty much the same from one to another. So, if you have a choice, try the Legal in the Seaport District of the one on Route 9 or another one near you. It's basic seafood, good for picky eaters as well as for slightly adventurous... More

Visited this restaurant a number of times and it never disappoints. Menu is great with lots of choice. Quality of food and presentation is superb. Service is really outstanding. Not cheap but great value. Would recommend to others and I will return.

Legal Sea Foods for years has been consistently outstanding. Only the freshest fish is served, the owner is committed to serving the best he can find. We started with good old New England Clam Chowder, you simply can't go wrong. This is a thicker version loaded with clams. I ordered grilled shrimp, scallops and a crab cake, my husband had... More

This is my favorite seafood restaurant in New England. The seafood is always very fresh and cooked to perfection. Legal is a small chain of restaurants and no matter which one the food is always the small high quality food. The prices are a bit high but well worth the price.

No one wants to get lost at sea, but those who have a taste for fun do enjoy long visits in our Natick/Framingham restaurant. Beach yourself in our dining room for seafood, rock the boat in our lounge or reel in some fresh catch in our drive-by takeout window. For the home chef, we sell live lobsters to go.
