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

One of our first restaurants and still a popular lure, we are located on Route 9 in the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center. We are still keeping things fresh at our bar, our open dining room and in our take-out counter and Fish Market.

Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker.

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.

Our waiter was very accommodating and food was hot when brought to the table. We all had a pleasant lunch but the noise level was a bit high and the 2 men with hearing issues found it hard to understand normal conversation. We find the parking to be problematic - always.

Both the grilled Halibut steak and the grilled salmon were excellent. Also very tasty roasted Brussel sprouts.

Having patronized Legal Seafood for many years, this was our most disappointing meal. There were hints of sand in a few of our dishes - steamers which we returned and got removed from our bill; the grilled scallops which was surprising. The famed clam chowder had fewer clams than usual. It’s upsetting that our go-to staple for seafood is declining.

Four of us had a wonderful birthday dinner, including a birthday dessert with serenading! Our waitress, Valentina, was a true gem and made our evening even more enjoyable.
