A word from Legal Sea Foods - Tysons Corner
The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Virginia is for lovers (of seafood)! Our two-story restaurant is double the fun with entrances on both levels for easy entrée. Choose to make a splash in the downstairs dining room or in the bar upstairs. Our landscaped interior patio is also a popular lure.

Our convenient restaurant location within Tysons Galleria II will get you hooked. 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 and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Diner Reviews
  • "This is the place for a good, fresh fish or seafood dinner. I'd order the simplest items, which allow the quality and freshness of the ingredients to shine."

  • "My lady and I decided to attend Legal. It was her first time and my second as I do not come to the area often. I made reservations, however, upon arriving, there was no one there to greet us and the bar tender that we could sit where ever we would like to. I do not have a problem with that, but what was the point of making reservations when I could have seated myself. There seem to be only one or two waiters available and she was running around trying to serve the entire top of the restaurant, I commend her for that. I did kind of expect more 'overall' but I may try another restaurant next time."

  • "Nice restaurant. Good service and fresh food. I would recommend that they add more tea to the Arnold Palmer drink. The drink taste more like lemonade. I also recommend use of sweet tea not ice tea. The dring is the only negative comment that my wife and I have, GREAT FOOD"

  • "Legal Seafood always has great food and this trip was no exception. This time, though, I hosted a large group of family, making the reservation on a Saturday morning. We arrived during a busy dinner hour, but they were prepared for us and seated us in a quiet room. We had a wonderful experience."

  • "I decided to bring my spouse here for our anniversary. It was her first time and my second time visiting this restaurant. I was really excited to share this experience with her since my prior visit eating here was amazing. Unfortunately this was not a good experience when is came to the food. I got the surf and turf... my steak was cold and so were my mash potatoes my stuffed shrimp were really good and fresh. As far as my girlfriends meal she got the cioppino according to her the seafood was soft and didn't taste fresh. After spending almost 100.00 we left feeling disappointed and dissatisfied with the whole experience. We probably won't go back there to eat."

  • "The lobster was overcooked. I would expect a places that only serves seafood, to be able to cook a lobster properly..."

  • "Went for a team lunch with five people. Making the reservation was easy and they accomodated the request to be out of the center of the dining room. However, service was horrible. Took a long time for them to take the order and once they did, it took forever to get served. Lunch took 90 minutes and that was with us rushing to get the check shortly after they delivered the food. They did not appear to be so busy to warrant such slow service. Also, no one appologized for this so I assume it is normal."

  • "We were four people and have usually dined with six at Legal Seafood; one of our favorite spots. Food and service consistently reliable and very good, pleasant atmosphere for overlooking a mall setting. Everything is very fresh and the choices are a little unusual from the Sides to the Main Entrees. But that said, there is something for everyone and all good choices."

  • "The most recent visit was dependable but not exemplary. It's a chain and you can expect solid food that is sometimes very good but is always dependable. The vegetables (sprouts) were lackluster. My cioppino was okay but it seemed overcooked. The fried oyster appetiser was good."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Wife and I always like to go here for beer and raw oysters and clams when we have a taste for them. So far, they have always been fresh and delicious. Can't say that we have had much else on their menu. We have tried their desserts a couple of times and I can't say that I would recommend them. They are typically Americanized version of some classics meaning they have way too much sugar."

  • "Stopped by for dinner while I was in town for a conference. The food was delicious and the service was good. Crab cakes are a MUST try!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "There were five of us and there was something for each particular dietary preference. Good food, well prepared, but no cutting-edge recipes or presentation, which suits me just fine. Service was good and we had a very pleasant experience. Quantity was such that we had some take-home leftovers."

  • "We had a fabulous dinner for my parents this past weekend. Wonderful Naked fresh fish (as only Legals knows how to do) and celebrated my dad's 91 yrs of life and both my parents 68 yrs of marriage. Our waitress was superb, attentive, friendly & let us move at our pace."

  • "This was a great place for our Ladies night birthday celebrations. The entire staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make it a perfect celebration. We had a perfect view of the mall as we ate our delicious seafood. The manager was extremely friendly and really made us feel welcomed to Legal Seafood. This is a restaurant that we will come back to visit."

  • "I didn't have a good time . The service was awful starting with the host. I called to confirm my reservation & the host told me why I was calling. I called to get directions and the host was rude , I tried to tell her where I was an instead of listening she kept interrupting me after every word . I asked her to seat us in a location that didn't have to much traffic and she sat us right by the kitchen and a server station. I asked if we could have a different table and her response was," well do you want me to be honest with you" why on earth would I want her to lie. We sat an uncomfortable table. Our server took 15 minutes to greet us & 15 minutes to come back &take our drink orders. This is one of the worst places I have ever been too."

  • "Had a 7:15 reservation for Valentine's Day. The restaurant is located in a mall, but has an outside enterance in addition to opening into the interior of the mall. Unfortunately we were not seated inside the restaurant, but instead in an "outdoor" area jutting out into the mall. The lighting "inside" was subdued and much more romantic than the bright lights of the "outdoor" area. Also we seemed to be surrounded by families who brought their children out for Valentine's dinner. Aside from the ambience, the service was good and the food was outstanding. There was a mistake on my order, however it was taken care of immediately. Everything considered, it wasn't too bad."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Valentine's evening out without the kids, so Legal was already a step-up on it's competition. However, the evening got off to a semi-rocky start with a back-up at the host's stand. That being said, once we were seated things went very well. The lump-crab dip appetizer was great, as was the flounder-imperial and the lobster roll my wife ordered (you have to ask for it as it isn't on the dinner menu) was superb - if you're a fan of lobster, but not necessarily breaking down the lobster, the lobster roll is the way to go. Service was great as well as our server - Whitney - juggled several tables with zero issues. We enjoy Legal whenever we get the chance, and having sampled several throughout the east coast, will definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I expected more with the service. The waiter had a pleasant personality but he was not attentive. He did not come around to check up on our table in timely fashions. The food took a while to come out, a little over 30 minutes during lunch on a weekday when the restaurant was not busy and it was just for two people."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "This place always has something new on the menu. I always try something new each time I go and always love it. It has a great selection of seafood."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My party of 8 arrived on time for our 8:00 pm reservation we made a week beforehand. The host informed us our table was being prepared. The hostess later told us the truth, that they weren't preparing a table because the previous guests had yet to vacate it. Another large party (who we knew) came in with a reservation time after ours and another hostess have them the table. After 45 minutes we were seated at two round tables pushed together without so much as an apology by the host. Dinner was only mediocre and not worth the trouble and wait. We won't be returning."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Food and service good as ever. The only cavil this time was that the fried calamari seemed a more rubbery than usual and less crisp as if it had sat for a while before being presented at table."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Legal Seafood in Tysons never disappoints. Service is great and food is excellent. If you go for the Lobster Bake, you better be hungry. In addition to the Lobster there is about a pound of Mussels and a large amount of clams. But....it is good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It has been a year at least since we visited this restaurant. Service was good but the food was awful. The restaurant needs a good cleaning as we'll. There was a little lamp at the table and it was layered with dust. We will never return."

  • "One of our guests has serious food allergies, so I was very impressed with how the waitress and chef responded. The waitress was very knowledgable about the preparation process, and the Chef delivered the "special" dishes to our friend personally. I had steelhead, a fish with which I am very familiar, and the way it was prepared and matched perfectly with the starch and vegetable sides, absolutely raised the bar on culinary excellence. Our waitress was attentive, but did not interrupt our conversations. I hate it when they do that. Her drink recommendations were uncannily accurate. An excellent time was had by all."
