Oysters of the Day
Scorton Creek | Pemaquid | Savage Blonde | Wellfleet
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.
Very good service from our waitress.
We went for a birthday celebration but unfortunately they didn’t have any candle.
Best experience ever!!!!
Our server was wonderful and very knowledgeable and provided a great explanation of the differences between all the oysters. Attentive and efficient service.
Our server was wonderful. The parking at Assembly leaves a lot to be desired, unfortunately.
We frequent Legal C in the Mystic often. And as usual, yesterday for lunch the food, service and everything was very good!!
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.
Fabulous experience all around. Our waitress was so friendly and kind - made the overall experience that much better. Good was delicious as always!!
Usually enjoy going to Legal, but this meal was lousy. Drinks were terrible and the food was off. Wouldn't recommend this location.
We had a great dinner and our server Tracy was wonderful.
Over priced, had to wait 40 minutes to be seated with a reservation at 6:30 we sat at 7:15.
Delayed w our food
But they tried to accommodate us w a free meal
We are regular customers we legal for years not this time something not right food was cold I’m not a complainer
And I’m not going to write a book about my experience that evening … good luck
Our waiter made the experience but the music was too loud by far.
I would recommend side dishes like mashed potatoes my elderly mother is on a bland diet fish was excellent
Good rib appetizer and excellent green beans …………
Our favorite Legal. If price is important be sure to ask before ordering lobster.
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,
The service was great and the food was wonderful.
Great dinner out with family. As always Legals seafood is amazing!!
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.
We had a great time. We were seated outside at our request. Our server was fantastic and the food was great. Nothing more to be said. It was really easy and enjoyable!
My Coworker retired after 34 years at MGH. Was great time to celebrate , perfect weather and food delicious. The server was very polite and let us all do some serious gossiping! It was quiet at noontime , then did start to fill up. The best part is the free parking! Thankyou
The food was delicious- we tried the new chef’s specials ( salmon and sole) and the service was amazing!
Food is always fresh and tasty with nice presentation. Good value. Waitstaff always terrific.
Scallops were undercooked. Good cold
Food was mediocre
A friend and I sat outside on a quiet terrace with all tables well separated and filled. Our meals were of the typical Legal Seafoods high quality- a salad with tuna, their crab cake and apple slaw and we shared a superb key lime pie for dessert. I hope to meet my friend there again despite the 35 minute drive for me from Metrowest.
Food was overpriced and just terrible. Hard pass for next time.
Service was very slow and towards the end of our meal, a mouse ran up the wall behind us
We love legals & this location! We started our meal with drinks & oysters - so yummy! Then we both enjoyed our entrees - the crab cake combo is a favorite & it was excellent! A very happy ending with key lime pie & the riverfest fireworks! Thank you for the wonderful food and great service! We’ll be back!!
The food is so expensive! It was a treat for my mother's birthday. Our server was excellent and very attentive. We will likely return next year for her birthday as she is a big fan of seafood.
They did seat me as I requested in the reservation which was great but the host was wearing his mask below his nose.
Service was pleasant but a bit sluggish. Food was very good although my tuna tataki could have done with a tiny bit less spice so as not to cover the wonderful delicate flavor of the tuna.
The tap water was awful and it would have been nice if we could have been offered an option. The did ask if we wanted bread. Do the same for water.
The outdoor patio is stark. A few plants and greenery is needed.
Our appetizer never arrived.
Legal has always served tremendous food and has the utmost respect for food allergies. Tonight's dinner was a reminder of both. Top notch service, food served quickly and professionally. Great dinner with my better half.
Delicious shrimp and crab cakes. High ceilings and open doors make for a safer eating experience than many restaurants during Covid.
Took some time to get the entrees, but food was better than I expected.
Mussels were smaller than other legal seafood locations I’ve visited, but it could be an exception.
Service was average, nothing to complain.
Very pricey for the quality
Our fish and chips came all burned out! And the fish was a whole fish and nit sticks
