The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.

All roads lead to Legal Sea Foods. In this case, we are located near four main highways (Routes 128, 95, 93 and 3) on the first level of the Burlington Mall. Make the most of our convenient restaurant location - come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our bar, dining room and stand-alone take-out counter reel in those who want to splash down for a meal or grab-and-go.

We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Friday night and looking for a great place for seafood, nothing beats Legal Sea Foods.

Very good food and service as always, but I wish the menu would change more often. Go at lunchtime for a less crowded, less noisy experience. Legal's is an institution here, and a staple in my restaurant list.

The shrimp scampi and crab cake combos were very good this time. However, service was just so so but OK.

Having been to Legal Sea Foods in the past we were very disappointed. Food came out cold, had to ask for missing items and all in all a very unsatisfactory celebration of our daughter's 19th birthday

Host by passed empty booths to seat us in very last booth by bathrooms. We had do be asked to be moved, and he still wanted to keep us in the noisiest section. I had to point to one of the empty booths towards the front. Once seated we had a very nice waitress. My food arrived and was luke warm. I wouldn’t go back. This Legal is dated. Host just didn’t seem to care about where he seated customers.

Always terrific food and service. I had a grilled scallop special with curry sauce that was so good I hope they put it on the permanent menu. Legal Seafood Burlington is one of our go-to favorites.

The food was very good. We were seated within five minutes of our reservation time on Valentines day, when the average wait was 1 hour. We made the the reservation for 8 PM at 7:30 PM on open table. We arrived at 7:50 and were seated at 8:05 PM.

The service is always good at Legal and the food is excellent. The dinner for two, with a cup of clam chowder each including tip, no alcohol, came to $100. We both had a seafood casserole that included, shrimp, scallops and white fish baked in bread crumbs. With vegetables on the side. If you want seafood, beyond your typical fried clams and shrimp, then legal is probably a great choice. It isn't cheap, but not ridiculous and the food is well worth what it cost.

The waiter forgot several times to bring us either the desert or check for 20-30 minutes. Upon offering to bring bread he only brought 2 small rolls despite seeing 3 people sitting at our table. Very inattentive to our table and neighboring table who he was also serving (forgetting to bring them plates or utensils for a desert they were sharing)

Our waitress was great, friendly and attentive. Food was excellent - fried clams for hubby, and grilled shrimp, scallops and lump crab cake with salad. We were served promptly, even though it was Valentine’s Day. The staff kept everything moving efficiently.
