Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. It’s a scientific fact that seafood is the healthiest protein, so it’s no wonder that Legal Sea Foods located nearby MIT and a whole catch of biotech office buildings in Kendall Square would be such a popular lure. Our restaurant, steps from the Marriott Hotel and convenient to Cambridgeside Galleria shopping and the Museum of Science, reels in residents and tourists alike. 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.

We have eaten lunch here twice when we were visiting Boston. Their chicken and fish sandwiches were great!

They do a great job here with both takeout and sit down service, and are equally adept at fried and non-fried dishes. Chowder is also excellent.

My husband, 16 year old son and I ate at Legal Sea Foods in Kendall Square over Columbus Day week-end. While the ambience and service was very good, the food itself was very disappointing. I would expect a restaurant so close to the water would have fresh seafood; what we ate was most certainly NOT fresh seafood. There are several charming restaurants in the area, go to one of them!

The lobster roll was served with huge chunks of lobster and it was well worth the price. The clam chowder was very tasty also.
