“Just OK....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stopped in for a late dinner, as the restaurant got great reviews and was very close to our hotel. We decided to try a bunch of appetizers, as opposed to both ordering entrees. We ordered the clam chowder, "Rhode Island stuffies", steamers, calamari and the fried shrimp wontons. I wanted to love everything we ordered- but I just didn't. The chowder was very good, but everything else, in my opinion, was just standard fare- not what I would expect from a seafood restaurant in New England. Everything was pretty good, just not great. I felt like it was almost a waste of money, but they were kind enough to take the stuffies (which we really did not care for) off the bill, which was appreciated. The staff was very nice, as was the atmosphere, so it has a lot of potential. Perhaps the main dishes are the better menu items...

“Excellent lunch with attentive service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Excellent lunch with attentive service! Stopped at Legal for a quick lunch and were very surprised to find an outstanding meal served by an excellent waiter named Christopher. This young man suggested just the right selections. Good wine, an excellent Greek salad with shrimp, outstanding clam chowder with the fisherman's trio ... A surprising meal at a chain restaurant!

“Excellent food at a price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Selection of oysters from places that vary visit to visit. Dinners $$$$$. I chose chowder and clam cakes appetizer. Felt misled on 6 for $6 oysters as it only covered blue points.
They adjusted to $18 a dozen for others, but buyer beware. I still haven't found the chowder for me, I've tried the RI Red and Light (clear broth) but would probably try the New England if I returned.

“Our "go to" place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Always the place we go to when we can't think about it. And never disappointed. Going here for nearly as long as we lived here, for their top dishes: Rhode Island Clam chowder, lobster, any of the wood grilled fish, steamers, and the clam cakes (that you can die for).

The wine selection is good (still miss the Volvray that they had by the glass); staff gives good service. If you have a problem, the manager is there to help.

Hint. The hostesses will sometimes seat you in some of the worse places; don't take that as the final answer...ask for a better seat or cal the manager. Sometimes, it pays to be a bit assertive to get past the inexperience of the hostesses (pretty but not always too sharp). They _do_ take reservations bt you have to be insistent over the phone, otherwise they just put you on a list.
