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.

    When we first arrived we were seated right away. Waitress dropped off menus, we ordered drinks and then we waited over 15 minutes for her to arrive back at the table to see if we wanted appetizers or if we were ready to order. Prior to our waitress arriving back at our table we spoke with the Manager who stated it was our fault she was gone so long because we ordered the Hot Apple Warmer drinks. We received our drinks the waitress apologized and she was great the rest of our visit. The food was unimpressive. I ordered the Boston Scrod. The fish was fine, but I the seasonal vegetables were sweet potatoes and the other item with the dish was rice? In addition the sweet potatoes were cold and they were returned. The other dish ordered was the grilled shrimp, scallops and fillet. The fillet was good however the shrimp and scallops were small and had no flavor. For the price of this dish it was very disappointing.

    Not as great a meal as in the past at various LSFs. Odd sauce or or something in a ramekin served with the crab legs. "Roasted mushrooms" surprisingly served in a liquid, more like braised than roasted. Good Caesar salad. Good apple cake desert.

    ordered tuna sashimi. It was overcooked. at least i'm assuming the gray color was from being overcooked! ordered mussels and they were gritty. someone else ordered fish and chips. the chips were shoestring french fries. very disappointing. I used to count on this place for a nice fish dinner. I won't be going back

    We hadn't been to Legal SeaFoods in a couple of years--nothing against the place--just hit other seafood restaurants. We had an absolutely delicious meal, everything cooked perfectly to order. Our waitress, who was pretty young but definitely interested in learning about wine, made a great recommendation on a lesser known Albarino that had real character. The decor was updated since our last visit. Service was excellent, with a waitress who obviously strove to do her best with customers. It's not cheap, but a very fare value and still excellent quality seafood.

    Service was good, kind and friendly. The triple calamari app. was yummy. The entree was very disappointing. Shrimp casserole was very salty and the cioppino...ugh. Lobster claw was over cooked, broth seemed to be the liquids left at the bottom of the steam pot with tomatoes added. Most disappointing was a bowl of pasta dumped in a bowl straight from the colander with NOTHING on it!

    My husband and I have been to Legal Sea Foods a couple of times and have always enjoyed the food and have gotten good service. But I must call out Courtney who was absolutely outstanding! She was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She knows the menu and was able to make suggestions and answer question without having to check with her manager or the kitchen. In addition, she really knows the wine list. She mentioned the restaurant had a few new wines and rather than rattle them off, she asked what we prefer and then matched the wine to our taste. And she recorked what we didn't finish. Courtney is a gem!

We loved everything, especially the Wild salmon feature. Too bad it's going out of season, but I will be back next year for it and many times before that!

    Brought my mother out to eat here for her birthday and had both of their features. The wild salmon was cooked to perfection on a cedar plank with a delicious filling salad. The app was an of menu feature recommended by our server Michael; the calamari trio. It was a perfect amount with some great sauces. Dessert was the blueberry galette, which tasted like we made it at home. We drank some wine suggested by our server for their Italian wine promotion, the prosecco was dry and crisp and their red was rich but not overpowering. Definately will be back again soon!

    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

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.

    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!
