Seafood
In the “Ocean State,” Legal Sea Foods makes waves serving over 40 varieties of fish and shellfish throughout the year. Our central bar and contemporary nautically-themed design provide a fresh experience for seafood lovers in Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts. In warmer months, we retract the glass walls of our dining room to convert the space into a large covered patio.

We are conveniently located at Garden City Center for those who want to shop and then drop in for a bite.

First visit to the new location. Promptly seated in a quiet booth as requested. Glad to learn our waitress from the previous location was still working, only not tonight. Sara, our server, was filling in for Krista, and did an amazing job. Started off with stuffies, 2 good sized clams, perfect for sharing. Grilled tuna steak cooked perfectly as ordered, just missing the grilled lemon we remembered from before. Broccoli au gratin side very tasty and a good sized portion, nice for sharing. I chose an entree from the LTK menu, sole florentine. Fish nice and flaky, served in 3 individual rolls, very appetizing when presented. Green beans and roasted potatoes a nice accompaniment to the dish, but the portion size was too big to finish. Got to take the rest home for lunch another day. Finished off with yummy decaf cappucinos for dessert.

Expensive for an informal restaurant but some of the food was outstanding. The "wedge" salad was unique and generous and the tuna was cooked to perfection. However the stuffed shrimp were disappointingly small. Service was prompt and polite.

My husband and I love going to legals. The service is always fantastic as well as the food and drinks. Garry, the general manager, is great and always says hi when he sees us. Legals is VERY luck to have someone like him running their Cranston location!

The menu describes the lobster macaroni and cheese as having one full lobster per order. My serving contained six chicken lobster claws no tail and no knuckles. That must have been one funny looking lobster. If you are stating one full lobster than that is what you should serve. Very disappointed. I will not return to this establishment.

Great dining experience. Server was very attentive. Had the grilled swordfish, Rhode Island style calamari, crabcake combo platter with scallops and shrimp. All very well prepared. Key lime pie for dessert, also great 👍

Food was delicious, friendly waitstaff, attentive, but not disruptive. Variety of drinks and cost overall for food and drinks was moderately priced.

Roomy sitting and I really liked the openness. Large outdoor seating when weather permits. I’d love to go back and sit outside during the warmer months.

I would recommend this place if you are looking for specifically for seafood.

Still Legal quality. Test menu item of Crusted salmon with farro salad was very good. Crab cake was superior. Scallops were cooked perfectly. Calamari side was very plentiful. Could use a few more menu choices.

We could not get a reservation for 12:00, as requested; so we chose 12:15. When we arrived at 12:15, there were only two tables already taken in the large room where we were seated. So why couldn't we be seated at 12:00?
The crab salad sandwich was huge, but the crab was very stringy and did not have much flavor. (Check out crab in Maryland or Delaware to find great-tasting crab.)
The fries were large but not much flavor. The cole slaw, however, was very good, as were the hot rolls. The "bottom line" is to put more emphasis on flavor and less on size of items on the plate.
Where were fried oysters? Are these ever on the menu?

We experienced yet another wonderful lunch at Legal Seafood yesterday.
They were able to accommodate our request for outdoor seating and we were surrounded by beautiful potted flowers. We were seated promptly then greeted by Rose, a very pleasant, personable server. She was excellent!
Our drinks were great and our food was served promptly and was fresh and delicious. Everyone was happy with our experience. We’ll definitely continue to go back!!

It was okay, waiter was a bit pushy and seemed to want to just move us in and out as quick as possible. A little overpriced also, $200 for a sandwich and two entrees for food that was okay.
