Took my father for his birthday. I will have to say no complaints at all the service was great and so was the food! The desert was the only thing I was not impressed with. I had the chocolate moose.

We went to Legal for the oysters and nothing but the oysters:). We lucked out this night as they were plump and juicy Malpeques, what I consider to be the best oysters in the world, even rivaling Bluepoints. Add to that a New England Clam...More

Have been eating at Legal Seafood restaurants since they were founded in Boston in the 70s. This particular one is not as good as the originals, but still quite good because they still use the same quality control system for selecting and processing their fish...More
