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

All roads lead to Legal Sea Foods. In this case, we are located near four main highways (Routes 128, 95, 93 and 3) on the first level of the Burlington Mall. Make the most of our convenient restaurant location - come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our entrance-way is marked by a water wall.

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 “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Diner Reviews
  • "Grilled haddock with cajun-spices, brown rice, and broccoli. I shall return soon. Yum!"
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "We had the baked Boston scrod, and it was disappointing. We went with the recommended 2 sides of rice and seasonal vegetable, which turned out to be fried, almost burnt cauliflower. This seems like a poor combination, because everything was dry, and looked quite bland. Service was good, though."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Even though our waitress misunderstood and thought we ordered a dish that we were just considering, the manager as well as the waitress never gave us grief about it. They just took it away and said that it would be no problem."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "This reservation was for dinner time. The staff was very accommodating. The pace of the meal; i.e. seating, time to review the menu, beverage order, dinner was excellent. The meal was served as ordered. All in all an excellent meal and dining experience."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "This was my first trip to legal seafood. The portions were fair and the fish was good. The side (broccoli) was undercooked but overall a good experience."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "3:15 for lunch. Since it was not particularly busy atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable Everything Spiced tuna was great. Spinach and Kale sides also terrific"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Enjoyed a delicious late lunch/ early dinner here with my sister. Food is very fresh and served hot out of the oven. Any seafood dish is your best main choice and appetizers are great as well. We are returning customers and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend. We will be returning :)"

  • "Long, long unexplained wait for food that was marginal POOR POOR POOR overall"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Always great service, great food - the thing I enjoy best, is knowing that you know what you are getting. It doesn't matter what time of day, or what Legal you are visiting. Always a pleasure to dine at Legal."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "always good. we live on the north shore and frequently meet friends there who live south or west of boston. always busy, always crowded, but they honor our reservations, to the minute, and that is very much appreciated."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We have always had very good luck with Legal Seafood. We particularly like the Burlington one. It is nicely decorated and we've always had great service there. I made a reservation for 8 at 7:00 and they had our table ready for us at 6:45. Good drinks, food and service !"

  • "Great location for small business meetings - mid point for many customers/clients."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Greeting and seating were prompt. The waiter was attentive and efficient. One diner had scallops, and one had shrimp; both were wood-grilled, and perfectly done. The sides were also just right - baked potato, coleslaw, and sea-weed salad. They seem to have the basics covered, but on other visits entees with more ingredients, such nut- encrusted salmon were soggy. This is not the best Legal Seafood, either for the food or the ambiance, but it is certainly better than most of the restaurants in the immediate Burlington Mall area. The best Legals are at Copley Place and Chestnut Hill."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Legal has great fish dishes. I ordered a caesar salad with grilled blackened shrimp, it was great. I normally don't like to go to Legal before a movie, but they were very fast and catered to our evening plans to see a movie after dinner. We really appreciated that."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Another visit to Legal produced the same outcome. Interesting and well prepared dishes made with fresh fish and seafood. There is an extensive menu, so choosing takes time. Our family always looks forward to returning following our visit. The vibrant dining room and restaurant layout is nice and comfortable. For the amount of people dining on a Saturday night, they do a great job in timing of the food items. You must give Legal Sea Foods a shot if you haven't been there before."

  • "excellent sea food, professional service I go here weekly with friends to catch up on the world etc... Sometimes not often there is a loud group nearby that is annoying. its a busy place but only rarely do we not get seat on time so they have their act together frankly being seat on time is a big issue with me and restaurants. will go here again....next Thursday:>>"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "A+++ all around. We enjoyed our appetizer, entrees, and dessert. I had my usual grilled rainbow trout. It was cooked to perfection, delicious, and plenty on my plate....which became a lunch I looked forward to having the next day. My husband also had his usual Arctic char. It was cooked kinda medium rare and he loved it! We shared a bottle of French red wine that went perfectly with our fish entrees and the price was just right. And for dessert, cheesecake! Yum! Service was most excellent. From the time we walked in to the very end when we said adios. Our waitress was Vanessa...lovely girl. Courteous and very professional. We also had a visit from the manager. She just wanted to say hello and checked to see how everything was. Nice touch!"

  • "I travel frequently from Los Angeles to Boston and always make it a point to eat at Legals. After memorizing the menu, I am now set to memorize their formidable and reasonably priced wine list! Never disappointed!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Definitely worth going there. Food is good, reservations are available, service is good, comfortable place to wait! Not much to be unhappy about!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "I love Legal Sea Food! The Burlington location is far easier and less of a hassel than the Boston location for our family. I've never had a problem with the service and the food is sublime!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "My mother and I have gluten allergies, which usually means that the food is over priced and mediocre, but not at Legal. The food was amazing, and I've never seen my mom so happy about going out to eat."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "When we moved to Boston a couple of months ago, we were given a tourist book that claimed Legal Seafood was the best in Boston. We were not disappointed! Everything was delicious!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The food is fantastic. The Lobster Roll was delicious as was the clam chowder and the Mahi, Mahi!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Generally, I would go Legal Seafoods for dinner but lunch at Legal is of the same high standard with plenty of light choices for mid-day eating."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "This restaurant continues to excel in very good quality seafood. The appetizers and the entrees did not disappoint. The wine list is one of the most reasonably priced I've seen. Bravo for this in a sea of 200-300% markups on bottles at most other restaurants. The service was a tad slow at all points, but otherwise was exceptional."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "I haven't eaten at Legal in about 5 years, and before that it was probably 10 years It used to be a special occasion place with good food and excellent service. The service is still excellent, but the food is mediocre. I'd definitely rate it as overpriced. I've had much better food at more reasonable prices. Portions are too large, and much too much fat/cheese. It's become like any other chain with bland food and supersized portions. We chose Legal because we had a gift certificate. We probably will choose another restaurant as our special treat in the future. Again, we have absolutely no complaints with the service - our servers were fantastic!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "I lunched with friends, and all entrees were fresh, delicious, and lovely in terms of presentation. Wonderful seafood, friendly atmosphere, and elegantly presented and served."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "It was our son's last night of Spring break and he wanted Legal Seafood, so we made a reservation for the Burlington, Massachusetts location. Although we were sat at the very last table in the back and I could see all the hubbub of the kitchen the service made up for it. Our waiter, jeffrey R., was fabulous! He made great recommendations for dinner, was friendly, prompt and attentive. Our dinner was delicious and we enjoyed our meal and time together in the restaurant. We would go back again in a heartbeat and would always ask for Jeffrey."

  • "Always great seafood! Crab cakes are awesome ! My wife had the cioppino and was great as usual ! A bit pricy but the food is worth it"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Waited 20mins despite an Open Table reservation. Food was amazing and seafood fresh. Very loud for small family dining as we couldn't hear ourselves talking. Service was ok and delayed with rolls and starters, received one of the three appetizers when main meal was served. Other than that it was good dining out."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Disappointed that some items (fried) weren't up to our expectations, as we eat here about every 6 weeks, and hoping this was just an off night. Thankfully they've kept some menu items hard to find elsewhere - mussels prepared in the traditional way with an (appetizer)portion that's ample for an entree. The jalepeno polenta is excellent, also an item hard to find on menus."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Every time we visit the Boston office, we make sure to have dinner at one of the Legal Sea Foods locations. The seafood is always fresh and perfectly prepared. I have a shrimp allergy and they are always very accommodating and assure me of the safety of my meal. The service is prompt and friendly. A continuing favorite!"

  • "Although located in a mall setting, Legal Seafood never misses with great food."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Because it was 7 PM on Saturday night, we were delayed in getting seated by about 15 minutes but were rewarded with a table off the main dining room that was almost private. Anna was our server and food and service were exceptional. Key Lime dessert was the perfect ending."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Needed to meet a friend at 7:30PM for dinner at the mall. Glad Legals takes reservations. Only had to wait 10 minutes and they wre not seating people without reservations. Food was good. Where we say was surprisingly not loud."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Legal seafood is a known quantity as always. Good food and you always know what you're going to get."

  • "Food, service, atmosphere, and location are always good. Makes for an enjoyable Lunch with Family when in the area"

  • "food was very good,noise level was a little high. We had a really good waiter so the service was really great. It's a bit expensive to eat there on a regular basis but fine for an occasional dinner."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Request for a quite location was not honored in fact was placed in one of the busiest locations I think in the restaurant. Staff relocated upon request and was much better location both in traffic and noise. Food was great, server was good. Other then the quiet table request not being really paid attention to all was fine."
