Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods - really fresh fish. Virginia is for lovers (of seafood)! Our two-story restaurant is double the fun with entrances on both levels for easy entree. Choose to make a splash in the downstairs dining room or in the bar upstairs. Our landscaped interior patio is also a popular lure. Our convenient restaurant location within Tysons Galleria will get you hooked. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. 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 "Best Place for Great Seafood" (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008), "Best Crab Cakes" (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

You MUST have the clam chowder here!!!!! The grilled shrimp is delicious as well!!!!! They also make a mean mojito and have a nice choice of wines. The service is always good and the restaurant in always busy.

The food is excellent and the locals are in agreement as reservations are usually needed even at lunch time. The service is fast and friendly and would always recommend it as one of my favorite stops whenever i get to McLean. I also enjoyed the scallops and shrimp.

We have been here several times and always seem to leave disappointed. The food is only average at best (I got the scallops most recently). Advise skipping it!

Food was chain quality and nowhere near the quality of the Lebanese Taverna in the same Galleria. Service was fine; sent back burned decaf for fresh. Crowded downstairs but immediately seated on the upper level of the restaurant.
