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.

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.

I was late for my valentine date but the waitress was so nice to my boyfriend and very accommodating for me making sure food arrived quickly because we had a movie right afterwards we had to catch! Great service, food and drinks! Love the seafood casserole and sangria:)

I would have given it 5 stars, like I always do but the service at this visit was not that great. It won't affect our going there again, just less stars this time!

Service at the bar was very good. Food was great. Waitress was attentive. Manager accomodating when an issue occured. The problem was that there were mice. 3. Scurrying back and forth on the far side of the restaurant. It happened toward the end of the evening, as the restaurant was quieting down, when we were finishing up. The manager came right over and comped our app. Put a real damper on the evening.

We go to this particular Legal Seafood almost every Saturday. The service is excellent and the food is always good. And the hostess is always so cheerful. We look forward to going each and every time.

We have eaten many times at the Burlington Legal - the food is always excellent and the service is fast and friendly. We go back regularly and will continue to do so.

Legal Seafood is a "chain" seafood restaurant but their seafood is always fresh, their service is always excellent and there are seldom any unpleasant surprises. The only negative thing about this restaurant is that it is in a large, suburban mall--busy parking lot, tons of people and that awful "Mall" feel. Still, it's worth the effort to come here because their food is so good.

The server was OUTSTANDING he should be giving lessons on how to DO IT THE RIGHT WAY. My wife and I have never been to Burlington Legal before but have been consistent customers since the early 70’s to all other MA . Legal’s and ones in West Palm Beach and Washington, D.C.
Thanks again for an outstanding experience!

Someone took my open table reservation, mistakenly it seemed! They quickly accommodated that mistake!
Then, the waiter mistakenly charged our credit card with Someone else’s bill! They fixed that!
A few mishaps have occurred at this location before!
sometimes they can be slow with our order!
