“Consistently good sea food”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Had a delightful family lunch. They handled our large group very well - explained all the dishes, served family style appetizers as requested, brought out everyone's different meals all at the same time and at the proper temperature. The various shell fish were wonderful. Brought without asking all types of condiments, and brought them in sufficient quantities not in little hard to open foil paks. Good parking. Noise level low enough for good conversation. Tables spaced well.

“Below average food for cost and reputation.”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

The resturant atmosphere and customer service where on the higher end. I ordered what I would consider to be a staple at a seafood resturant on the east coast - lobster bisque, surf and turf with lobster and a filet mignon. The bisque was forgettable, the lobster was served coolish, the filet was tough and required A1 sauce and the corn on the cob was clearly microwaved.

For over $50 (not including my desert or wi e) I expected ALOT better.

My dinner last night at the national chain Cheescake Factory was far superior for much less.

Not returning.

“A Mass. tradition”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

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.

“So-so food”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

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.

“Excellent seafood and service!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

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!
