A word from Legal Sea Foods - Huntington
The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Long Islanders know oysters and they eat them at Legal Sea Foods. Come for the seafood and stay to shop. We are conveniently located in the Walt Whitman Shops. Eat fish, live longer. Eat oysters, love longer.

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 being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Diner Reviews
  • "While I was not blown away by either the food or the service, everything was good. Our waiter was professional, even if he did try a bit too hard to be entertaining. My clam chowder and swordfish steak was tasty, although someone else on the table said it was a little cold. There was also another food complaint on my table as well, but I don't think that affected our thoughts of the place. I've been here before and would come back again, although I might want to try somewhere else first."

  • "We've been to the Roosevelt Field location that has since closed and we were excited to try the Huntington location since we love the crab cakes at legal seafood. Overall it was a really good meal and we'll definitely be back."

  • "Great fresh food, great service, all at a reasonable price. They have some of the best crab cakes I've ever had. NO breadcrumbs as a filler, just all crab meat! What more can I say?"

  • "We were here about 5 years ago with our then young daughter and were not overly impressed. But Now that she is eating from the adult menu we decided to give it another try - What a fabulous dinner we had! We love fish and our entrees were cooked to perfection. The lobster bisque is to die for. Our server was amazing and attentive: Especially because they ran out of the one thing our 10 year old wanted and she was really accommodating to find something else she'd love (which she did). I really do think the food here was even better than we've had at H2O which is considered the 'top of the line" seafood restaurant. All the folks waiting for a table at Cheesecake Factory next door should come here instead! So much better!"

  • "Good food and always good service. I had grilled tuna with Cajun seasoning which was very nice. The broccoli was a bit ordinary but my wife's spinach would have been a better choice. Wish I had room for dessert but the New Englang Clam Chowder was like a dessert before the meal."

  • "Marilyn the server was very attentive and John the manager was very friendly. He brought over to our table 2 glasses of apple cider which you use in mix drinks. I told him we are not drink and July 8th was our 41st Wedding Anniversary. We enjoyed our meals. I had the Fish and Chips and my wife had the Salmon. Your hot rolls were very tasty. Marilyn and John did a great job."

  • "Had dinner with my entire family and we had a great dinner/time as always. I have been coming here for 10 years and it has not lost a step. Excellent raw bar (cherry stone & little neck clams) loved the bar scene (great drink menu, i.e. Sangria!) and our entrees were terrific (try the wood grilled swordfish, crab cakes or scallops). I will continue to come back and tell others, since this is one of my favorite places on Long Island."

  • "A pinot grigio drinker at heart, I never branched out from my go-to wine and I never branch out from my Legal crab cakes. (Because, why would I???) I come to the Huntington one often and were so happy that they reopened! I need my fix! The manager told me about albarino and she had me try a small bottle and try the crab cake combination instead. She knew what i normally ate and drank and convinced me to change it a little bit. Just another reason that Legals will always be my favorite restaurant."

  • "We have been to Legal's before and it's always a nice meal. It's a little pricey, but still a nicer style of restaurant so it is in line. This recent trip, we were surprised because they were out of a lot of items. Some sort of delivery problem. We still found options for everyone, so it turned out okay."

  • "The appetizers were really good and there was a nice variety. I had lobster ravioli. It was not that good because the pasta tasted like it was frozen rather than freshly prepared. But the service was very good, the wait staff was attentive and everything arrived quickly and hot. I would go back but I'd get a different entree. There were free refills on the pomegranate lemonade - which kept coming - but my daughter ordered cranberry juice and hers was automatically refilled but we were charged for it. I never like when restaurants do that. I feel the restaurant should let you know when they are dipping into your pocket. But it was a nice day and I didn't make mention of it because service was really good."

  • "After having a good experience on mothers day my father wanted to go back for his birthday. Thus was a big mistake. After sitting at the table for 15 minutes the service finally came over to take our order and the restaurant was empty. After another 15 minutes our apps finally came out. My mother ordered a lobster bisque which came out so cold that you could scoop it with an ice cream scoop. The manager brought out a hot soup and said I hope this is hotter. The problem was not that it wasn't hot enough. IT WAS COLD. The customer service from the manager on duty was pathetic. The manager had the audacity to tell me as I was leaving that he was going to remove the soup. That's just an insult. If he was going to remove it he would have. "

  • "We went here for a quiet dinner. The food was good as was the service. My only negative, if that, is the portion size for the price. I had the clam chowder an it was excellent. One of the best around. Wife had the salmon and she enjoyed that as well. The issue came in on the crab cake combo plate. Shrimp were small as was the overall portion size for the other items. That said, the food itself was great. Large pieces of crab in the crab cake. So, long and short of it, we will go back."

  • "We had dinner at Legal Seafood to celebrate my birthday and frankly, were disappointed. We ordered the fried oysters as an appetizer and could hardly taste any oyster in the corn meal coating. Good fried oysters should burst in your mouth and this was so overcooked that it tasted more like fried clam strips. My husband ordered a lobster and specifically asked that they do not split the lobster but steam it whole, but it was split when it arrived at our table. In fact the waitress stated that they never split the lobster! He ate it anyway, but another example of a disappointment. My cioppino was fine, although not as good as what I have eaten at other restaurants. Not a horrible meal, except for the oysters, but not good."

  • "I am a big fan of Legal Seafood, and I am sad that the Huntington location is now the only New York location. The atmosphere was energetic yet my table of five was able to hold our own conversations without straining our voices or anything like that. Our waitress was excellent. She made fantastic suggestions and was very patient with all the guests, some of whom were hard of hearing and having trouble deciding what to order. My only complaint is that my dish, the Baked Shrimp casserole with crab meat, was far too salty. Also, I didn't like that the cracker crumb base of the casserole. This dish used to be shrimp stuffed with crabmeat, which was absolutely delicious. I'm not sure why they switched to the casserole, but please change it back!"

  • "This was our second trip to Legal Sea Foods in Huntington. The first time around my husband got a stuffed trout that was outstanding; I had the seafood casserole - while the seafood in it was fresh and plump, there were far too many breadcrumbs. This time around, my husband ordered the fisherman's platter which had too much fried calamari (the icky kind with the tentacles), and not enough of everything else. My daughter ordered the stuffed shrimp casserole; not only was the shrimp not stuffed (the crab meat was loose in the dish), but again there were far too many breadcrumbs. I kept it simple - grilled swordfish - which was excellent. Our desserts could have used improvement too. We may come back, but we'll be very choosy."

  • "We had a lovely booth and the staff was attentive. My date's fish, the special arctic char, was undercooked, so we sent it back. It took quite a while for them to cook it further. The yogurt sauce for my date's spinach side order was lumpy and tasted strange, so we sent that back and had the new yogurt on the side. The manager was very concerned about these issues, and provided us with a special desert, and took some items off the bill. It was overall a pleasant experience"
