I was a party of 1, so they sat me at the tables in the bar area, which was fine. I had a couple of loud patrons at the bar that were using some pretty offensive language. I am not bothered by that at all, however I would recommend keeping children and maybe sensitive adults out of that environment.
Leian P. took great care of us. Food was Legal Seafoods quality. We will be back.
We vacationed in New England and had dinner here on our last night before flying out. It took a long time for the waiter to acknowledge us but then he was ok. I had salmon which was great but the plate was ice cold and so was the farro and kale (which was supposed to be kale but was spinach). My daughter got the lobster bisque which took some time. The waiter said they were waiting for lobster. It was good once she got it but the chunks of lobster looked and tasted more like crab. We were disappointed in this dinner.
We expect wait staff to be masked which they were, but between the noise level & the masks it was hard to hear.
The food was nicely done - one salmon, one shrimp scampi & one scallops were all well prepared, served hot in in good sized portions.

Fabulous food and service! Brian’s the best!
One of the party ordered the Swordfish steak with the olives; olives turned out to be the star. Swordfish reported to be very low on taste. The other dishes were very good. In looking at the bill when we got home, I think we were charged for a glass of wine we didn't order. There were three of us in the party, and I was the driver and had none. I should have caught it there.
Unfortunately Legal has gone downhill and is jut not the same. they finally brought back he lobster bisque and it was not good; instead of being a rich reddish color it was brown and watery. It was quite peppery and if there was sherry in it we couldn't taste it. I ordered the simply grilled scallops and they had no taste. Very disappointed in the meal overall.
Meeting an old friend for a reunion of sorts.
Good food, good service.
Restaurants used to be a treat and a pleasure to go to, not anymore.
The service was terrible, felt rushed and not taken care of......I work too hard for my money and it was not worth the trip, time or money. Will not be back.
Bartender are always the best
As usual the quality of the food and service were excellent!
Waitress was awesome! We were disappointed that the menu had changed. We came in for the trout and baked potato and both were removed from the menu.
we sat at the bar and got excellent service!!!! food was great as usual.
Great food great service
Everything was great as usual. The one thing we would say is that having the dessert menu on the kids menu was a bit odd. Also the desserts didn’t have any description with them. The presentation of the dessert menu was just lacking. Just a thought. Great food and service as always.
Absolutely the best restaurant, it’s my favorite. Friendly and courteous staff all the time. The food is always delicious
Late lunch with friends on a Tuesday. We three enjoyed tuna burgers and tuna steak entrees with service by Brian who was superb. He really knows people and has a great sense of humor. Legal Sea Foods is convenient, consistent, with a good menu and wine list.
Great experience. Excellent food and great service
My friend and I had a wonderful time. The staff was accommodating and we never felt rushed.
Had a fabulous fish & chips- enough for two people!
Both my friend and I had the burata/tomato/pesto salad with shrimp. It was really good. Sat outside which was nice until it got very windy but that’s not Legal’s fault.
We enjoyed our meal, but items that were available gluten free in the past have were not available this time, and we were unable to ascertain whether this was a one time issue, a supply chain issue, or permanent. Since one of the reasons we like Legal is that they had a lot of GF options that are not widely available elsewhere, we were disappointed and are concerned that they may have changed something we really like about them.
Good service and food was nice and fresh!
Went yesterday for lunch. The food was delicious and our server Vanessa was very nice and attentive. The only issue I had was with the hostess. She seemed very annoyed and her tone was curt. It was odd because I’ve always had a nice experience at this location.
Amazing experience on your patio last night!
Emily was our server and we LOVED her!!!
Such a fun and energetic personality that made for a wonderful dining experience!
The patio was a fun place to sit and eat and the food was amazing as always!
We were able to eat on the patio in comfortable seating and safety.
Our appetizer and drinks were delivered very quickly and were fabulous! We love the Bang bang cauliflower! Our drinks were replenished very efficiently and our entrees arrived hot and delicious. The servings were generous and we were not rushed, and our server checked back with us several times.
It was a delightful experience.
I was thinking how best to treat myself after so many challenges in previous weeks and it was clear that I needed a lunch with a great ambience… Legal’a have been tradition now over 20 years and I’ve never been disappointed ☺️
Food always good but what happened to the menu?
Distressing that aocial
Gina our waitress was great. She kept checking on us if we needed anything. She was very sociable and made our luncheon very enjoyable. The lobster rolls are the best of anywhere in the South Shore of Boston. My niece and her 6 yr ok’d daughter enjoy getting together at Legal’s and the patio dining was very nice especially during these troubling times.
Steamers were fabulous as appetizer. Stuffed haddock was wonderful and portion was more than enough.
Server (Brian) was excellent. Caring considerate And perfect at his job. Made for very pleasurable evening .
Haven’t been to a Legals for a while or taken over by Smith and Wollensky and was disappointed. The food, service and quality/quantity of food have been so poor. A fair rating is a stretch. The prices have increased tremendously and the amount of the servings decreased. We will not be returning any time soon.
Legal Seafood sets the bar for delicious seafood. We have been returning over and over for the past thirty five years at one location or another. The quality remains topnotch. Legals is the only restaurant that I will eat raw Cherrystones or Littlenecks. The food is fresh and there is always enough to eat.
Calamari was greasy and overcooked.
Our server was lovely and knowledgeable about the dishes.
My scallops with succotash was great. My husbands fish and chips were a little over done.
Great martinis Mango lemon excellent.
Thank you for another outstanding experience at LSF Braintree! The food was exquisite as was the service. We can't wait to return.
The drink was bad. The worst strawberry daiquiri I’ve ever had. Sour..I asked to sweetened it up. Obviously the bartender poured out at least half the drink and replaced with filler. It was sweet but he poured out the rum. He should have made a proper drink. Clams were over cooked. Too loud…loud. Not a good experience. Wait staff was excellent.
