A word from Legal Sea Foods - Boca Raton
The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.



Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. Floridians know fish and Legal Sea Foods has long starred in the culinary show. Indeed, this Boca Raton outpost is seafood central for those who want to try all 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish we serve throughout the year. Come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our convenient restaurant location at Town Center Mall will get you hooked.



In good weather, our outdoor patio reels in those who choose the fresh seafood and fresh air combo.



We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “Best Seafood Hall of Fame” (Boca Raton Magazine, 2008), “#1 Best Family Restaurant” (Parents Magazine, 2008) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

    Recently visited Boca Raton from the boston area and took my mother out to dinner for her 93 rd birthday. She ordered her favorite meal , a lobster, and it did not disappoint. She didn't leave a bite on the platter. The manager and waitstaff were friendly and helpful. We are disappointed that this restaurant will. be closing. It will be missed.

    It was really great having this restaurant in our neighborhood for the last 13 years. We are all sad to see it close on 10/14. I am truly sorry the economics has ceased to work for the Berkowitz family. A fond goodbye to wonderful New England comfort food you will be missed.

    We visited this very busy restaurant in an upscale mall location on a Saturday night. After we were seated and our drink orders taken and delivered, our waitress informed us that they had not had their airborne food delivery from New England. Consequently, most of their popular dishes were unavailable. We cobbled together a meal out the remaining available items which had to be hurriedly ordered to ensure they didn't run out. Typically this restaurant has excellent food, but they deserve a poor rating for not informing us in advance of this extreme situation when our OpenTable reservation was made that same day.

    Unfortunately, it was not up to the usual high standards. I think they were short-staffed for a Saturday night, and they were by their own admission short of fish. But they did comp some of the dishes and so as always, I have to say they do right by you if you have a complaint.

    Dined on 9/12/2013
    The service and food are always delicious. I have been to many of their restaurants on the east coast and always find their food to be consistently delicious, served by a friendly wait staff. Their clam chowder is the best and any of their many entrees are great. Some of my favorites are steamed little necks, steamers and lobster roll. My friends enjoy their cold clam bar of oysters and clams. We were recently surprised when we ate with a friend who needed to eat gluten free and found a full separate menu for her to choose from. It contained all the same assortment of foods as the regular menu but, with the necessary gluten modifications. I would not hesitate to recommend Legals to anyone who enjoys fresh, delicious seafood.

    Food and service top-notch. Had not been to this location for a few years. Their service has been upgraded quite a bit from what we remembered. They now have a host/manager that really kept things moving. All of the waiters and other dining room staff all seemed to work together and help each other. The oysters were the freshest we have found in South Florida, flown in from Massachusetts. The whole-belly fried clams and the stuffed shrimp were very excellent. We will be going back.

    Very noisy. Poor selection, only 2 choices of fish and maybe 3 choices of seafood. Poorly prepared, not very tasty. Wait staff did not return to see how was everything or to see if we wanted anything else. Would not recommend it for fish or seafood! The manager was no where to be found.

    My mother and I just got off a flight and drove a few miles to the restaurant to meet my niece for dinner? The manager greeted us at the table. The service was excellent and friendly. The oysters were out of this world. We enjoyed the French wine festival and drank a delicious white Sancerre. My mother's pecan crusted red snapper was exquisite. I had a wonderful evening at the restaurant with my mother and niece, everyone made us feel special!

    When we walked in and requested a table in the front, the manager said, "you can have whatever you like". That attitude carried throughout the meal. My partner couldn't make up his mind between blackened or Cajun salmon, so they did half and half. My daughter's braces were bothering her so they took the corn off the cob. The menu is much more upscale than it used to be, and everything we had was great!

    They have the best steamers in South Florida. They also have fantastic crab cakes, clam chowder, and all types of sea food. Their Greek Salad if fantastic and can be split as an appetizer. One of the most consistent dining places around. Casual dress code makes it great for South Florida muggy weather.

    We have dined here before and have been very satisfied but Friday really could have been better. The surf and turf was very good. However, when we got our steamed clam appetizer, I had to get up from the table to find a server to bring drawn butter. Two servers missed that obvious fact. The catch of the day was wild King Salmon and by 7:30 on a Friday night with about 1/2 of the restaurant occupied, the salmon was gone. While these may seem like nit-picking, they didn't seem to be trivial to us. Overall, the food was good and a special acknowledgement of a birthday celebration was tastefully done. We would come back, but we have had better at this restaurant and hope they will consider this to be constructive criticism to improve upon.

    A lone Florida outpost of this venerable Boston seafooder is just as good as any of their other locations but with a little tropical flair. The fish is fresh, the clam chowder is justifably famous and the wine list is both fairly deep and priced right. Through decades and many locations, I've never had a bad meal at any LSF.

    I was there to celebrate my birthday, noted in the reservation mentioned to the hostess Sandra, mentioned to server Jordan. He had to be reminded of the occasion, then he brings the dessert, I expected more. restaurant was not particularly busy. When my companion and I arrived at the restaurant, the hostess, Sandra, was taking a telephone order and ignored us for at least 3 minutes before acknowledging our presence. Then the waiter too took a long time to arrive at our table to greet us and take our order.Nutty Atlantic Salmon, excellent, mushroom ravioli and spinach were bland. ravioli and the spinach just seemed to be boiled and was without taste. New England Clam Chowder adequate, Lobster Bisque better. Food better than the service.
