Delicious! We stumbled upon the 1$ cup of chowder that was wonderful on a cold day. Scallops were scrumptious too!

Service was excellent - she was so attentive, accommodating, and very nice. Food was not amazing - the chowder was good and salad was good, but everything else just didn’t seem super fresh, and it all seemed very dry.

I had a lovely time! Food and drinks were absolutely delicious! Only issue is my card was over charged $20 when we left. I feel like this was due to the waitress giving herself a tip, even though we left cash on the table. I am hoping this wasn't the case but sad to say it happens!

Celebrated a family friend from far away visiting after a couple years. We enjoyed a wonderful champagne toast, followed by cocktails, appetizers (bang bang cauliflower and crispy calamari Rhode Island style) and some lobster bisque. The food and cocktails were excellent! Our party of 6 had a reservation at 7:30 and our round table was ready on time. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. The best dishes were sesame crusted yellow fin tuna (the best!) and Legal’s signature crab cake special. The New England Baked Haddock - Anna’s Way was very tasty, a basic dish done very well. The Cioppino was filled with seafood including plenty of lobster, but the calamari was over cooked in the tasty broth. The Bajan Rubbed Mahi Mahi was a very tasty piece of fish and the tomato compote curry added nice flavor to the dish. The cilantro lime rice tasted just like plain white rice, and did not fully complement the flavorful fish dish. Overall, the service and food was very good, even with a couple of minor hiccups. We’d be happy to go back again!

Great place for our family of diverse palates, though wish more interesting salads for vegans and vegetarians. And also more choice in desserts, like dishes of ice cream (not bon bons) w. fruit on top so slightly healthy :D

Arrived 3 minutes early for 7:15 reservation - was told they need a couple of minutes to get our table ready.... no lobby or area for guests to wait for tables so we stood in between the doorway and hostess area until we were finally seated at 7:30. Once seated, took server another 10 minutes to arrive and take our drink order. Service throughout felt like what you would expect in a fast food restaurant - server clearly had too many tables. Swordfish and Filet entrees were decent, but underwhelming for the money. The restaurant is clearly overbooked and understaffed. This was my second recent underwhelming experience at Legal C's - unfortunate because I've always liked the place. I'll give it a while to see if they make any changes, before I give it another try

All food was excellent. only quibble is that we didn't ask the price of the special, Martha's Vineyard bay scallops and were somewhat taken aback when we got the check. But they were delicious. our waitress was a little slow but responsive to requests. it was clearly busy and she had quite a few tables to cover, so not complaining. I was concerned that it would be very noisy, as the space filled up, but we could carry on a conversation and there was no obnoxious music. i will go back to this Legal Sea Food.

If you like overwhelming noise, parents who let their kids watch movies on their devices at full decibel while seemingly being unaware that other people are dining and bad service, this is the place for you! Can’t wait to not go back.

Great to sit outdoors and enjoy the nice weather. The salamis on the mixed greens was a nice piece of fish. My 86 year old friend was overjoyed with the fish and chips. We had a wonderful waitress whose name I cannot recall,

Great food as always. Service was spotty as no one checked on the table once the entrees were delivered. Empty water glass for more than 20 minutes.
