Legal Sea Foods was born in 1950 as a fish market in Inman Square, Cambridge that expanded in 1968 into a no-frills restaurant where guests sat on picnic tables. The first floor hull of Legal Harborside celebrates this heritage and features a casual restaurant and market.

Here you'll enjoy an all-day menu of seafood favorites with a twist as well as shareable plates, pastas and pizzas made to order in an open kitchen. Choose to eat at one of the picnic tables for an authentic throwback experience or grab a seat at the oyster bar and watch our shuckers at work (up to 14 varieties of oysters are offered daily). A large elliptical bar offers both wine and local beers on tap. Patio seating, along Boston's HarborWalk, affords a clear view of the Boston Fish Pier, the oldest working fish pier in the country, and the city skyline.

Went to Legal Harborside with my two college student daughters and a friend. I'm from out of the area so this was a new restaurant for me. We dined on the first floor which is more casual and less expensive than the upstairs dining. We were all happy with the menu - there was definitely something for everyone, including sushi. Those who don't like seafood might be a little disappointed in the menu as there aren't many non-seafood items. For those who do like seafood, you're in for a treat. In our group, we ordered 2 sushi rolls, fish and chips, caesar salads, clam chowder soup and a pasta dish with chorizo and scallops. The clam chowder and sushi rolls were especially good. The fish and chips were also good. Would definitely dine here again.

Did our now annual drop-in. We were early and the table was ready right on time (12:30 PM, Sunday), looking out at the frigid January harbor. Menus, beverages, ordering, rolls, and meal moved along at a good pace. About 90 minutes later we were on our way back to the weekend's event we were in town for.

You really can't go wrong at Legal Seafood. The food was very good. Service was excellent. Meal was fairly priced. The location of the restaurant features beautiful views of the Boston waterfront. The chowder is world famous. The scallops were juicy, meaty and well prepared. The swordfish was delicious and flavorful. A great meal for the price.
