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

No one wants to get lost at sea, but those who have a taste for fun do enjoy long visits in our Natick/Framingham restaurant. Beach yourself in our dining room for seafood or make waves in our lounge.

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.

Legals is a great place to go for outstanding seafood. The clam chowder is the best around.

I usually enjoy Legal but the other night was off. The service was fair at best and my tuna steak was over cooked .

We typically go to this Legals for special occasions like Mother's Day or when all the kids are home and this week we went to celebrate a friend getting her doctorate. We had a wonderful server and the food was at its consistently very good level. The only glitch was that for some reason my food order wasn't placed. The server and manager handled it very well. I was offered something to eat such as a salad or bowl of chowder gratis so that I would not be watching the other 3 in my party eat. I chose the delicious fish chowder. My meal finally arrived when they were almost done: baked stuffed shrimp which was also delicious. Then to our surprise they comped my meal for the error. That's excellent service. We had an enjoyable evening out with good friends and delicious food.

The food was average at best. They ran out of two of the three meals we ordered. My broiled fish platter had little flavor and looked baked not broiled. Bar had a funky smell. Will not be in any rush to go back. Our waiter was sweet.
