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.

    Used to be kind of special. Don't know what changed, but it is just decent, run-of-the-mill now. Had a shrimp crab casserole that would have been great if they had let the shellfish shine instead of drowning it in garlic. Oyster appetizer got a fancy presentation, but I could've done without that and just had a couple more than 4 little oysters. Key lime pie - filling was really good, crust not good (left on the plate) Our server was pleasant and helpful. I won't go out of my way to eat here anymore - not what it used to be

    We had a party of 10 and no one had any complaints! Our server, Mike was attentive, patient and amusing, he made us all laugh! The food was great, as usual. The manager, Megan, came to check on everything, which is a nice touch. The hostess was friendly upon our arrival. The restaurant is clean and has good lighting. The food was delicious and had good presentation!

    We had not been to Legal Seafood in years - wound up choosing it because of location. What a pleasant surprise! We were early and given the option of waiting at the bar or going to our table. Chose to take the table and we were given the choice of a booth or a table. Chose the table because the waitress told us there was no AC vent above. There were 4 of us for dinner and I have to say that the high point of the evening was our server, Tiffany. She was attentive without being intrusive and very knowledgeable about the menu. The low point: we ordered steamers expecting a bucket and got a bowl with 9 steamers! Ridiculously overpriced also. The rest of the meal was great, the ambience pleasant, and all in all I would return here.

    I was looking forward to having some good seafood! I had ordered the crab cakes. The crabs were gray in color! I had then thought to order something safe scallops they were chewy not very fresh! My husband decided not to have any seafood ordered a steak it tasted fishy... What ever happened to legal seafood? The waiter left for long times in between. The restaurant was not busy at all service should have been better! Don't go to legal seafood!

    Truth be told, my pasta was a bit overcooked in my Shrimp with Garlic entree. But the flavor was right on. In addition, the wedge salad with blue cheese and bacon was not lacking in flavor, nor was it lacking in bacon and blue cheese either. Delicious. And the manager came over and served my wife and I a chef's "special" tuna appetizer snack. It was not on the menu, but if it was I would order it next time. That was a nice touch and he said it was because we did our reservations through Open Table.

    We had always wanted to try Legal Seafoods and found a Birthday Dinner to be the best time to try it. Because we had booked via OpenTable, we were offered a chefs special Shasimi (?) (Raw fish, which only my Son eats but he wasn't ordering fish this evening). They tried to get us to try it, even saying "I Don't eat fish, ever, but I like this" which is slang for: "the only fish I eat is this". But we weren't. I can't speak for my Families dinners but the decision in the car was, "We tried it, but I've had better". I had the Surf & Turf, and they were nice to de-shell my Lobster. But both the Lobster and the Fillet were just, OK. I'd had better Lobster in many places. The Wait Staff was amazing, often reading my mind! Fantastic Staff

    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 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.
