    We had a reservation for 6:45. We were seated quickly, but then sat for over 20 mins and no one even came to greet us or asked if we’d like drinks or waters. After waiting over 25 minutes without even seeing a server we just decided to leave. Very disappointed as I know this is supposed to be a great place, but now probably won’t ever be back.

    Food was just warm not hot. Sloppy appearance. It was a cloudy drizzly day, less people, but no reason to just go through the motions. My steak tips were minimal and 2 were very small with fat. Wife’s Salmon was small. Kids fries tasted like they were sitting for awhile. Very unprofessional coming from a Legal C Food. My local no name pub has better food for way cheaper.

    I went for the trout which was baked perfectly. Our booth was located near the kitchen which was too noisy to have a conversation . We were moved not to a booth but a quiet table. The tacos were also a pleasant surprise and delicious. The new menu gave us lots of lunch options.

    Legal always is fresh and the food is done perfectly. They are reliable and a great place to bring out of town guests for our North Atlantic seafood. The lobster roll is a half pound with fries and $38 so abundant but pricy. it is a splurge but worth it.

    We had a lovely lunch. Good selection on the menu, good service. My lobster bisque had more lobster than is sometimes found at restaurants. My companion was very happy with her trout. My grilled shrimp were good, but the citrus butter enhancement didn’t have much flavor. It wasn’t bad, just not outstanding. Same with the green beans side. Nonetheless, I am sure I will return because it was very good overall.
