    My dinner was literally upside down. The dressing, tomatoes and bacon were under the wedge lettuce. The grilled salmon was broken in 3 pieces with the pale side up. I did not send it back as I would be eating alone when it came back. The rolls did not arrive until our dinners were done. My friend did not get her coleslaw until she was almost done and asked for it.

    Lobsters were great would have given a 5 but lobster bisque was very disappointing. There was pure sherry on top , not mixed in , off taste and bisque was only lukewarm . I will not order this again. Twin lobsters however were delicious. Would do that again. Waitress somewhat sharp , attitude and lost my mom’s credit card. Took a while to find it

    Both food and services were great! We get the mussels almost always and they’re a hit or miss, these time they were absolutely delicious and fresh. The salmon was fresh too, and my husband love his filet mignon.

    Wonderful experience! Celebrated my husband’s birthday with our toddler boys. Our waiter was super friendly and super helpful especially with picking out the oysters. He recommended some delicious oysters! I wish I remember his name for future reference. The clam chowder is always wonderful especially when it’s served super hot. We got the lobster rolls. Wow… Beyond exquisite! Lobster meat wasn’t overcooked or rubbery, it was super soft and tender… perfect amount of mayonnaise with a buttery roll, heavenly! Our only complaint are the fries. They use to be less plain & dry; it must be a change in vendors. I don’t recall the fries not being up to par. I’m also out dating myself bc we don’t go to Legals as often especially with little children. However, this restaurant is children friendly and it’s greatly appreciated. My toddlers were so happy to see our waiter bring over the birthday bonbons for their father. The boys loved singing happy birthday and blowing out their father’s candles. Such a beautiful treat! And the boys absolutely loved the chocolate bonbons. My husband and I are trying to make a point to eat out as a family at least once a month and we feel Legals is our family friendly restaurant. We really love Legals and it brings us back to our earlier years of dating with no child. It’s really a nostalgic restaurant for us and we’re so glad it’s still delicious after all these years. The Lynnfield location is ideal for my family. Thank you!

    It was a great night. I got the Valentine’s special filet with lobster tail. It was delish! My husband got the little necks as an app. I got cup of clam chowder. He got the fried seafood platter. Our waitress/bartender Randy was the best! We shared the cheesecake for dessert: everything was perfect! Great atmosphere.

    The visit was a bit of a downer. Previous visits have been good. I ordered swordfish. It was bland and the fish was soft. It was subpar at best. I have had it at Legals in the past and it was delicious. This time it wasn’t good at all. My wife ordered salmon. Hers was bland as well. It seemed to be missing something. We visited for Valentine’s Day and we were very disappointed. Not sure we’ll take the chance again at that price point.

    The oysters were way overpriced. I thought my cioppino was very good! But my partner felt the wine was just ok and overpriced, and his crab cake dinner could have been better.

    Waited thirty minutes for appetizers, both of which are pre-made (clam chowder and shrimp cocktail). Appetizers and entrees were brought to the table at the same time. Lobster roll was half filled and bun was overly toasted. Waitress was nice enough to comp our dessert since everything was a mess. Sangria was good.

    It was good, but we went for a BOGO lobster roll promotion and they didn't have any lobster rolls! Atmosphere is nice. I like the long "adjustable" tables, but I would never want to be a party of 2 stuck in the middle!

    The Crab roll was full of shells and fish sandwich and fries were over cooked in the fryer. We`ve had the same server several times and had good experiences but this time the server was over worked and having a bad day.

    We had a 5:15 pm reservation. Service was quite slow a a result of the manager having a staffing meeting shortly after we arrived. Took a long time for our dinner to be served after we placed the order. The server asked how the meals were and we told her that my wife’s fish was over cooked and the side were cold. She asked if she could redo the order, but we declined because we had already waited too long and my wife did not want to eat along. The order also came incorrectly as my wife ordered the seasonal vegetables and received rice pilaf instead. The server brought my wife the seasonal vegetables but they were luke warm. She redid the broccoli, but it was steamed, but at least hot. In general, we have always had wonderful meals here, but this was the worst meal in going to Legals. Our server, Kathy, tried to make things better and we so appreciated here intent. It was the kitchen’s fault, not the server.

    I was at the restaurant for a business dinner. Check in and seating was fine. Waitress came by and took drink orders, delivered them and asked if we were ready to order. We'd not looked at the menu yet and asked for a few minutes. 20 minutes later rolls arrived and then it was another 15 minutes before she came back and took our order. No apology for the delay, nothing. The turnaround from the kitchen was fine but the staff had no idea who had ordered what so we had to tell them where each plate went. In general, I have had good experiences at Legal's restaurants but the service at this location was terrible.

    Our displeasure was because we were charged a different amount of the tip. We found out this particular restaurant charged my bank much higher amount of tip than what we wrote on the check. This was fraudulent act which will deter us from coming back to this location in the future. The place was very busy because it was Chowda Day with $1 clam chowders. But I am not sure if this is still an excuse to overcharge for a tip. This is an update. The restaurant reached out to me and resolved the issue so I’ve updated my review.
