Legal Sea Foods - Burlington Mall
Father's Day SpecialDinner was special and dad really enjoyed his meal-- off the menu, they made him a lobster scampi which he really enjoyed.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMreliable!We always go to Legals when we have friends from out of town or for certain special occasions. The seafood is always excellent as is the service. In dozens of visits, we literally have never had a bad experience there. My one complaint is that it can be a bit crowded and a bit too noisy, so if you're looking for an intimate conversation, you might prefer to go elsewhere. But if you want reliably excellent food and service, I recommend them highly.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentFirst time at this location, we stop in town for one day until we continue our roadtrip to our destination. Overall I would come back next time, we are in the area, definately we are coming back.We try other locations in NY/NJ area always we live happy...6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably goodWe had predictably good food, a great serve and a table to accommodate a large group that was out of the noise, a great evening6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSole Food +Sea food that is fresh and simply prepared in a way that enhances rather than masks its delicate flavor. Kudos to the kitchen for maintaining high standards in a relaxed, sometimes hectic environment. Our guests from Florida requested double scotches (which they were told were not allowed) found that the generous single scotch did the trick nicely. They raved about the sole and swordfish and the sides and I can vouch for the crabcake combo with grilled shrimp and scallops. The plates went back licked clean. I would have liked a tad more seasoning with the crabcake but the lump crab was to die for. All in all, a good place to meet with friendly service and good value.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen you had the rest, you stayWhen you had the rest, you stay with the BEST. My old shipmate that I haven't seen in 37 came to town for training and I work around the corner. It was the "Most Perfect place to meet. Of Course, he got lost, he's from TX. So after, confirming our reservations with great staff and getting my 'pocket buzzer' I talked him in to come to the 'Backside of Sears'. Keep coming, keep coming Hey, You drove past me. Come on Down, son. We walked in and were seated immediately and a booth and talked after getting drinks for a half hour. Had the "Cowboy Oysters" and M.D. had the medium size lobster (He stripped that like a Buick) and I had the cioppino. Both were the reason we go out. For a great time and Great Food. Thank you so much.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Great!Consistently Fresh, Good & enjoyable. Never disappoints ! You can enjoy healthy fresh seafood without a lot of extra sauses, salts and calories. Everthing tuna is a favorite as well as swordfish with onion jam. I could eat there almost every night! lunch is good too! Prices for menu entrees have crept higher, though you get what you pay for. Wine list could have a few lower cost glasses though.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DinnerWe had a nice experience for dinner after HS graduation. Seated promptly (we had reservations for 10), efficient service, food was good - I'd say above average - and served in a timely manner. A nice wine list and some interesting signature cocktails. I have no complaints, and would recommend a visit. It is a little loud - which wasn't a problem for our big group but might be if you're looking for a quiet dinner for 2.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner for 5Made a reservation for 5 for Saturday night. Received a call Saturday afternoon to confirm and was able to change time without any problem on the phone. My son tried a different version of grilled shrimp that was not to his liking. The manager came and switched his meal without cost to his old favorite fried shrimp. It was a pleasant, comfortable booth with all enjoying the various meals.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, efficient, attentiveGreat, efficient, attentive service ....good option for lunch. Food is reliably good.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodFresh and tasty seafood like no other. Service was great.

We had a wonderful experience and will return for sure!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMRainy weather means Eat at Legals!We had a reservation at Legals, but the weather was terrible so the mall
was packed. Even with a reservation we had to wait 10 minutes or so.
The food as always is excellent, Annas Scrod always a winner, seafood casserole delicious. Our server
had a lot of other parties but was knowledgable about the wines and very nice. The noise
was very loud but other than that a excellent meal!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTypical LSFAs always, the seafood is always fresh. The taste of the food is a matter of opinion as it depends on the seasoning and how it's prepared. There is no reason not to come here for seafood but of course, there is always comparable seafood elsewhere.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA+++ all around!My husband & I made an early dinner reservation. We bonded w/ our waiter, Aaron D, before the dinner rush came. Very professional, attentive, & super friendly service. We started by sharing a bowl of steamers w/ butta dip. It was so delicious! Just the right size, sweet, & tender. We both ordered wood grilled fish. They ran out of his favorite, Arctic char, but he enjoyed his 2nd choice salmon. I savored my rainbow trout...it was grilled to perfection. Ate only 1/2, saving room for dessert, of course. We ordered a slice of chocolate layered cake to share & was pleasantly surprised when it came out in 2 little plates. We also had a bottle of really great Cabernet from Chile. This was simply a satisfying dinner! Thanks so much!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to eatI have been going here for quite a while. The food is delicious and the service is fantastic. I will be going back again for sure.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSatisfactionWell worth the trip. Been going to the restaurant in Peabody, but prefer Burington. Ate in semi-private room, great for a birthday celebration. Food was hot on time and very good. We ordered a special chocolate surprise to finish off the night.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten Free MenuWith three Gluten free kids, it is nice to have a menu they can choose from. The popcorn shrimp was fabulous, something they just cannot get everywhere else. The "lite" and "Gluten free" clam chowder, though tasty, is lite because it is not a cream sauce... so make sure you check what you are ordering but everything was great. My kids loved it, and I was there with kids from 11 down to 5. Kids menu and crayons and kids cups as well. Thanks for providing another option for our dining out!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFishGirls' nite at Legal. Our server was great, but I think I must be the only person alive who just does not love the food. I had baked stuffed shrimp and the stuffing was burnt. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meal. Just me??5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDINGOutstanding food, outstanding wine list outstanding service5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable but expensiveWe went on Mother's Day. It was packed, of course. Even though I had made a reservation well in advance for 7 people, we had to wait at least 15 minutes for the table and the receptionist was snippy with me when I went to ask how much longer the wait was. Aside from that, we love it there. Once seated, we did have excellent service. Food was great as usual. Kids menu very healthy serving both fruit and vegetable with the entree.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThey are organized and efficient...They are organized and efficient.... and the food is good!!!!

Worth returning just for that.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day TreatSeafood is excellent - we had the shellfish, seafood casserole and mixed seafood grill and mussels in sauce as an appetizer Grilled tuna and salmon were a little dry. It might be a good idea to specify medium rare. Everything was delicious, including the sides. Good wine list. On a busy Mother's Day afternoon the wait staff was friendly and efficient, wishing all the Moms a happy mother's day. Although it was a bit hectic due to the special occasion, the noise level in the booths was low - we still had a sense of privacy because of the well-thought out dining layout and good sound proofing. We had a tasty, relaxing and enjoyable family dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSat at the bar for a lateSat at the bar for a late lunch. Even though we were at the bar, we had the same great service as if we had been at a table. And the bartender was fun to talk with. We enjoyed the attention and the food. Delicious tuna. Fixed to perfection! Great experience - as always. Legals is consistently great. We always know the fish will be very fresh and fixed perfectly.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood once they understood usThere was a problem when the waiter thought we wanted Baked Lobsters where as we wanted the Lobster Bake. I asked for the manager, and he got it under control. Food was very good, and I was stuffed! I will definitely return when I'm in the area again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food.

The grilled seafood combo was decent however the portions of the three fish were small.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great family get together.Had a great family get together.

For this, we were very grateful.Legals is one of the safest places for me to eat. Many restaurants are not nearly as accommodating.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was helpful andOur server was helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and the children's meals provided well-balanced nutrition for our kids. This was the perfect place to enjoy lunch as a family while shopping at the mall.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Consistent!The clam chowder is the best! We ordered the wood grilled sword fish and it was outstanding. Decided also to share a fisherman's platter and was a bit dissapointed, it seemed like old frying oil was used.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCame here with my friend KatieCame here with my friend Katie on Saturday since we hadn't been here before and she is visiting from Utah so I wanted to show her seafood. It was great! Our server (Kevin I think... tall skinny guy.) was really helpful with the menu since we didn't really know what we wanted, and his white wine suggestion with the oysters was great. Everything was prompt, and I liked the little touches in the service and the overall friendliness of the staff. I got the crab cakes and LOVED them, and my friend liked her lobster roll. The place was overall pretty noisy though especially for an afternoon, but I guess that's not the restaurant's fault. We'll definitely come back to try out more of the wine list and hopefully we can request the same server.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat basic seafood. ChoicesGreat basic seafood. Choices are varied and prepared well in a basic way. No fancy artwork on the plates, etc. A reliable seafood experience that can become a regular event.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningGood experience as always, was a bit loud in the bar area, but not overwhelming.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always outstanding.Food is always outstanding.
