Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. All roads lead to Legal Sea Foods. In this case, we are located near four main highways (Routes 128, 95, 93 and 3) on the first level of the Burlington Mall. Make the most of our convenient restaurant location - come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our entrance-way is marked by a water wall. 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.

“Nice menu, great service.”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Relaxing lunch in a fast paced mall location, great service and good selection. Everything we had was well prepared and served timely. We would go back and recommend this restaurant. The only down side is needing to deal with the mall location.

In a mall with outside access. The mall has many upscale stores. The food was amazing and they have an extensive wine list. The server was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was spot on. Highly recommended!

“Hail Caesar, Salad that is...”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I'm not a big fan of seafood but I had a business meeting there and ordered the Caesar Salad. Granted, it was a salad but it was done well. The rolls they serve are incredible and the service was stellar. From the greeting at the entrance to the time we left after lunch, we were taken care of very well. They have a very nice facility and despite being a crowded restaurant with high ceilings (which usually means LOUD) the atmosphere was suitable for an across the table conversation easily. Everyone else at my table did actually have seafood and appeared to have enjoyed it. Great location, busy place, great service and people.

“Great Swordfish!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This restaurant was very busy, which was a bit of a surprise because it was quite expensive. However, the food was outstanding. I had swordfish, and my husband the rib eye. There was so much food that we took half back to the hotel, and the next day, bought a salad and had the rest for lunch.

Both the steak and the swordfish were as good cold as they were hot!
