Their fried batter can be ordered GF, very good (the batter was a little peppery this visit but not bad). My husband ordered the grilled swordfish with mashed potatoes, butternut squash and a cup of their famous clamp chowder. Great meal!!

Has anyone ever given Legal a poor rating? I cannot imagine it. We've been there any number of times over the years, and the food has always been superb. As for service, it's just as well that they don't let you take the waiter person home. Our most recent server was such a delight, finding the right balance beween being... More

I eat at Legals occasionally at the airport when flying JetBlue. It is conveniently located after Security. They have a large bar and many tables. Seats don't take long to get even when crowded. I recommend the crab cakes and the seared tuna. They serve breakfast also.

Anyway, this time was extra special; not becuase it was my birthday. Our waiter, Carlos, treated us to some of the best service I have ever received ANYWHERE! He was... More

As we often eat at the LSF at Logan when flying out of town we couldn't resist going here when we were in Framingham to visit a family member. The restaurant is located on Route 9 near the Natick Mall. There is easy access if coming from the west, not sure about coming from the East. Plenty of parking in... More

Love Legal. Stopped in tonight with the family after a movie at the AMC Theater a few minutes away. Chowder was perfect as always, esp. on a cold night. Crab cakes and lobster (steamed)... excellent service... Sonoma Cutrer Chard... always great here.

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.
