They have a wide variety of seafood on the menu, and a good, friendly atmosphere. The portions are huge (I often forget how big American portion sizes tend to be) so order accordingly if you're from elsewhere. There were really only two issues that stop...More

garlic shrimp and pasta was great and my kids loved the fish... I had heard about Legal Sea Foods for a while, so I'm glad we got to try it before we left.

We have just had an amazing meal here, with the most fantastic service! The staff could not do enough for us. I had the lobster and it tasted amazing. I would definitely recommend coming here!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I had steamed clams and a salad with gluten free bread. There are other options, but I don't eat crab, lobster, shrimp, or steak.

Calling all gormands and oenophiles! This Legal Sea Foods' location in Boston's Theater District, surrounded by hotels and nearby Newbury Street, Copley Square and Boston Common, offers an expanded wine menu - 40 pages in all. Just inside you'll see a two-story cascading fountain, the center-piece of the restaurant. Splash down in our dining room or make waves in our comfortable lounge three fathoms below. Our award-winning Wine Cellar, which holds over 10,000 bottles and 800 different labels, is also downstairs. Call ahead and ask our wine steward for a tour. Those who like to 'wine and dine' are in luck because our working Cellar doubles as private dining space for social and corporate functions.
