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.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2008

We stopped at Legal Sea Foods Burlington mall on our way into Boston. We were early so there wasn't a wait. Service was good. Food was okay but nothing to rave about. We had several different fish dishes. Scrod was slightly overcooked but not to the point of sending back.

“Great Seafood, busy location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2008

We love Legal Seafood. It is hands down the best seafood you can get in the area. We've been to most area locations and find the Burlington location to be very busy. Would highly recommend advanced reservations. Aside from the crowds, this location was renovated and feels new and spacious. Try the crab rolls, they are available at dinner despite only being on the lunch menus. Recommended.
