This is one of my husband's favorite restaurants. The restaurant we visited is at Boston Logan airport . We arrived at gate A2 and Legal's was right in front of us. I had the most delicious fish sandwich with fries and cole slaw. We go...More

Lovely atmosphere in different parts of the large space, predictably excellent seafood of all sorts. We rolled in after the symphony just on the edge of closing time with the place nearly deserted and staff seemingly aching to go home. Not a chance; Elizabeth picked...More

Know it is a commercial place, but food is always consistent and good. It was within walking distance for us.

Even though my tuna was overcooked the sides were good. The manager offered a free dessert and the chocolate molten deliciousness didn't stand a chance of survival with three spoons devouring it. Beautiful setting and great area as well!

We were avid fans of Legals but our love of the place faded once they cut some of the portions and did away with the freshly baked rolls. We visited them today and the place is back in terms of good food, great rolls and...More

As usual the fish was fresh like it just came out of the water. Enzo Raggiana (assistant General Manager) treated us as usual like one of the family. He made sure everything was to our liking. I recommend the Halibut Provencale. They will make this...More

Great location in the prudential mall. You must remember to make reservations or the lines will be long. The fish items are the best to get as it is a fresh catch. Definitely get the clam chowder since you're in Boston.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Come aboard for seafood or make waves in our buzz-worthy bar. We are conveniently located inside The Shops at the Prudential Center, within steps of the Hynes Convention Center and Newbury Street. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker. We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Boston Phoenix, 2009) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.
