Description: No one wants to get lost at sea, but those who have a taste for fun do enjoy long visits in our Natick/Framingham restaurant. Beach yourself in our dining room for seafood, rock the boat in our lounge or reel in some fresh catch in our drive-by takeout window. For the home chef, we sell live lobsters to go.

The food is a little pricey but always excellent, fresh and tasty. Legal is a true Mass / Boston tradition, and has been for many years. They are very serious about maintaining their reputation.

I am not a fan of franchises, but I had heard that this was a good one. On the whole, I wasn't impressed; the decor was nice, but the food was greasy and lacked finesse. I found the menu rather limited, especially if you really weren't into all fish.

I have eaten several times at Legal Seafoods at a couple of locations. Every time the seafood and service has been excellent. Moderately priced, nice bar, friendly staff. Last night I had fresh oysters as an appetitzer and they were fresh, clean and tasty. That was followed by that night's special of macadamia nut encrusted mahi mahi, which was excellent also.

I recommend it!

"Legal" prides itself in FRESH seafood, and for good reason. Their food always taste fresh and wonderful. I had the 1 3/4# lobster. It was perfectly prepared and delightful to eat. Others had ciopinno, fresh fish, lobster stuffed with crab and other dishes. Every one was perfectly prepared and excellent. The quality of service was in keeping with the quality of food. The only downside to the meal was the noise level. This is a large dining area, and it was almost totally full. The noise level was bearable, but distracting. But for that many people, it was manageable. This place is always busy, and often times requires a wait, even with reservations. But the fresh food is worth waiting for. After all -- "If it isn't fresh, it isn't legal!"

We both had the swordfish special. Perfectly cooked on top mashed sweet potato. Yummy! The waiter Anthony was one of the best waiters we ever had. Perfect meal and service. Just wish there was one in Maine.
