Legal Seafood in Garden City, Cranston has good food, great service (our waiter was wonderful), and pays attention to detail. The RI clam chowder was very creamy and tasty. My husband ordered the seafood grill which he enjoyed.

Really a hidden gem! Consistently excellent food and service. Having a tough week? Go to legal- you will feel better. And nearly everything can be made gluten free- even the fish and chips

Good as always but open table messed up and they didn’t have my reservations. Even though it was New Year’s Eve they were gracious and had us seated at a table within 5 minutes. We had received a confirmation from open table so we were surprised.

I ordered the classic house salad with added crab meat . The salad itself was good. The crab (meat) ? Was ground up loaded with mayonnaise. It was not crab meat , it was crab mush. Lunch for 2 was $104.00. No drinks !

I think their food has gotten better compared to when they first opened. My husband said their stuffies were the best he's had since Christie's (closed many years ago) in Newport. Their crab roll was also excellent. The manager was very professional and took good care of us.

Despite the restaurant being practically empty, our server was very inattentive. $14 for 2 small stuffies is a stretch considering Matunuck Oyster Bar's much superior in taste and size was only $5. The "bowl" of chowder was cup sized. We Felt the need to double check the bill to make sure there wasn't a mistake in our ordering because no one would consider that a bowl

The food and the service were great. We met an out of state family member for a Christmas gathering, and we all had a great time. Our waiter Caleb H. was excellent. It was also a plus to be able to order items off the dinner menu for lunch. Our three meals were Legal's Signature Crabcake Combo, Baked Stuffed Colossal Shrimp, and the Fisherman's Platter, and would recommend all three. We also had the crabcake appetizer and it was awesome. Legal's crabcakes and all crabmeat, no fillers at all, and very fresh. We shared a cheesecake with black cherry topping for dessert, and that was wonderful. This was the second year we gathered at this Legal Seafood for Christmas, and I think we'll do it again next year for sure.

We had dinner at Legal Seafood to celebrate our anniversary. Can't say enough about how good our meals were. My husband just loved the crabcake dinner. I have Celiac disease and found many gluten free options on the menu, even a gluten free dinner roll! It was quiet, not crowded (a Monday night) and our waitress was very attentive. Really enjoyed this night out. Pricey but excellent.

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.
