Fish is freshly prepared and the New England clam is really good. For a chain and the prise its worth going here for fish. Please do not expect you are going to get fish that you get from a high end fish restaurant. But it is still really good.

A very good, reliable seafood restaurant. The fish is fresh and well prepared. It is located in a busy mall, and does not offer valet parkng

Thoroughly enjoyed my stuffed lobster. Full serving and very nice spinach side dish. This is always on my list when I head to the east coast. Basic furnishings amid incredible food. Nor to be missed.

We had eaten at this chain before and remember the delicious lobster tails and excellent baked potatoes. This time the food was disappointing. My swordfish was good, but the veggie was so-so, and the French fries were terrible! (I am sure they were frozen). My wife had the shrimp double stuffed deluxe which was cooked in the oven and was...

My wife and I enjoyed a nice quiet romantic dinner at Legal Sea Foods which is located at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, NJ. The service was excellent and the food was prepared to perfection. I had sauteed shrimp and garlic with pasta. The food is a little pricey, but I guess you get what you pay for.

So Ok, I know it's a chain...but the seafood is super fresh and the service is great! We sat in the bar with Shauna and Jennifer and they were the best! The wine list is great and the best part is the mark up is so low that it actually pays to get a bottle! Happy hour?! 4-7 all oysters... More

We came to Legal Seafood for Date Night, and the food was, as always terrific. The crab-and-lobster stuffed lobster was buttery and delicious, and every time we swear we're not going to order cioppino and we do because it's THAT GOOD. We have a server, a woman in her late 30s with long blonde hair in a fishtail braid, and... More

Was very disappointed. Very expensive menu. Cioppino was flavorless. New England clam chowder tasted like Campbell's from a can. Rolls that were served with dinner could have broken the window if I had thrown it. On the plus decor was nice and server was very accommodating.

I was happy to discover that Legal Seafood has a restaurant in Paramus!! My friend and I ate lunch there this past Saturday. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and were seated in a comfortable booth. Restaurant is quite large decor was welcoming. Our waiter came over immediately and answered our questions. I have never eaten lunch at Legal... More
