Wonderful restaurant. We love the fresh selections and atmosphere. Seating and services was pretty slow, but I would still recommend this place.

If you are interested in fresh seafood there is no better place to go than Legal Seafood. The food is very good, moderately priced and the service is excellent.

We know shopping induces hunger - and Legal Sea Foods reels in those who want to splash down for a meal or grab-and-go. Our restaurant is located on the upper level of Copley Place, with direct indoor access to both the Westin and Marriott hotels as well as to the Prudential Center. Panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Boston's historic South End. Here the views and the seafood are second to none.
