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
  • "Service was great. Ordered the fried seafood platter and was somewhat disappointed. Heavy breaded and soggy. My husband ordered the same and enjoyed it. Drinks were made well. Would return but stick with a lighter meal."

  • "Legal continues to exceed our expectations. We have never been disapointed there. One of the best restaurants on Long Island."

  • "Food was good however for the amount of food and the cost I would not choose this restaurant so quickly again. Had shrimp dish which consisted of 4 shrimp for &27.00. It would have been nice if the shrimp's gastro track (the black line) was removed and I didn't have to do it myself. They put a "bread basket" on the table.....one roll per person is what is given and they did not refill it once it was gone. Beer on tap was returned because it was flat and bottle beer was then offered. Overall, I won't be returning."

  • "Always serve the freshest seafood. We've never been disappointed. The empanada special was wonderful as was the cajun swordfish. The calamari trio is always a pleaser. Service is attentive and prompt. Always love going for dinner!"

  • "I had been to a few Legal Sea Foods in Boston and was hoping that my NY experience would be as good... I wasn't disappointed at all. The waiter suggested char, which I had never heard of. It was delicious! The wood grilled sea bass was amazing as well. No complaints on appetizers or dessert either!"

  • "restaurant was not crowded on a friday night, but had to wait for waiter to take drink order. First vodka martini was made wrong, the remade drink was just warm vodka from bottle poured into martini glass and 2nd remade drink was finally fine. Manager came over to comment on the problem and left some humus with crackers as compensation. My swordfish came without the ordered cajun sauce cooked on it, and when I found the waiter, he apologized and brought some on the side. Unfortunately, this did not have the same effect on taste and I was already close to done eating. I expected some discount on the bill due to these problems, but there was no compensation. Since I don't plan to eat there again, I didn't bother to track down the manager."

  • "Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. She checked on us often enough but not disruptive to lively conversation. Food was served in a timely manner, looked good & tasted great! Also, upon entry, we were greeted warmly & attended to efficiently. We've been to the restaurant before and it is consistently very good."

  • "As in its title, Legal Seafood is a great restaurant for seafood. I know it sounds redundant, but not all restaurants have good, fresh seafood that is cooked well. Entries were plentiful and delicious. Salads were great. Dessert very, very good. Service was attentive. Ambience of the restaurant was also very, very good. We could see a nice bar even though we did not use it. I would go again and also recommend it to my friends."

  • "We ordered the surf and turf with the lobster not knowing that it's actually a stuffed lobster with LOTS of breading and shrimp and some scallops. Was craving lobster but was a bit disappointed of what we got. The calamari was good so was the steak. The roasted mushrooms and kale salad were very good sides as well! Will come back but won't order that lobster again."

  • "It's so strange that in Long Island there are so few really good seafood restaurants. Legal is one of the best. The menu has a variety of dishes - shellfish and fin fish - and you can get things prepared simply (grilled) or more elaborately. All the food is high-quality and ample portions. The prices are not low, but you are paying for very high quality fish and they are worth it. Legal has added "premium" side dishes, for which you pay an extra $1.50, and I recommend them highly, especially the roasted root vegetables. The wine list is quite extensive for a chain restaurant. All said - an excellent choice for seafood lovers. Only one downside, the service was very slow, even during an off-hour."

  • "Although food was excellent and our waiter was attentive, our food took a long time to come out. When the manager came over to our table, I attempted to discuss the problem, however, he turned to speak to someone else and left without explaining. The party at the table opposite ours had the same problem and when they attempted to speak to the manager, he "blew them off" as well (their words). We have been faithful customers since the restaurant opened, and have never been treated in this manner. Very disappointed!"

  • "Excellent food, courteous service, reasonably priced. A good choice if you're looking for seafood."

  • "Ordered swordfish prepared cajun style. Dish did not disappoint. The fish was fresh and the requested spices added a nice touch. The huumus appetizer was outsanding with a garlicky flavor. As usual, service was courteous and efficient."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I was meeting a friend for lunch and we randomly chose LSF because it was convenient and available. First, it was virtually empty at 12 noon; perhaps seafood is perceived as too heavy for lunch. I had the same fear but there was a list of 7 or so lunch choices that were appealing and reasonably priced. We both had the crab cake simply because (and we were shocked) it was under 400 calories. When the meal came, you could see why: the freshly made crabcake was virtually all meat and was fresh and delicious. The and accompanying salad, though unremarkable by comparison, was tasty. It was a wonderful lunch and a pleasant surprise!"

  • "Went here to treat myself after having a minor surgery. The food was absolutely fantastic! We started with the calamari trio (an off-menu suggestion from our great server Michael). It came out with more three heaping portions of calamari, all with different flavors. For dinner I ordered the chef special (Beef Wellington) and was amazed at how delicious a dish it was. It wasn't even seafood! They also had a very extensive wine list as well as drink menu. The server was extraordinarily helping us pick a bottle of wine that suited our food AND our tastes perfectly. Will definitely be back again soon."

  • "This restaurant has been in this location for a long time, and people have recommended it to me. Not loving seafood I haven't gone until now. You don't have to be a die hard seafood lover to enjoy this restaurant, but the fish lover certainly will. I like shrimp and they were very fresh and cooked to perfection. The service was friendly and helpful, in a word perfect. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."
