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.

I got the haddock imperial which I love at prime bar in wayland. The potato was so big that it was hard and not edible. They brought me a new one that was the same. The fish was way too well done. My wife got salmon and loved it. Maybe I was just unlucky. Let me know what you think. 508-298-3396

Very nice meal and excellent service. Being that it was Valentine's Day, the restaurant was very crowded. In spite of this, the service and food delivery was prompt and attentive and the meals were prepared perfectly. My only small quibble was that knives weren't included as part of the table service. That made buttering the bread a little challenging.

The food is always great. And the service is outstanding.
The salmon and swordfish dishes were delicious.
I didn’t like the new Boston cream pie!
Sorry extremely sweet.

My Mahi Mahi was outstanding. Service was very good. My only comment is that the sides are not very good. A small selection that are really not up to speed with their seafood.

So so. Not the value and service we've come to expect from a Legal Seafood brand.

Went to meet an old friend for light lunch and a lot of catching-up. Ordered the Caesar Salad for my entree. The lettuce was “swimming” in dressing, great taste, but way too much.
Table next to us was very loud and we found it difficult to have a conversation.

Always a good choice. Was a little disappointed that they were out of the sole filet that I wanted, but there were plenty of other good choices. Our server was pleasant and helpful.
Have been there many times and will go back again.

Crab cakes were tasty and hearty. Scallops were great and waiter explained dry pack which means nothing added to cheat for weight. Boston cream pie was interesting with sauce and toffee crunches on top of a round portion- tasty but not traditional. Maple bread pudding was more like coffee cake

We have been going to Legal for years. I am a seafood person and my husband usually has the hamburger, which, he says is excellent. The food is always great, service is impeccable and I highly recommend it.

The food is very good. Only the raw oyster is smaller than I thought. And the service is very nice. We had a good time.

The Halibut was not good and the brown rice was not warm enough. Very disappointed.
Last year I ordered the same plate and was good. No consistency.

Met an old friend for an early dinner. We had lots to catch up but never felt rushed. Delicious food. Knowledgeable, polite server. Lovely experience.

this restaurant manager claims that the state law only allows them to serve one drink per hour which is to true. The claim that because, apparently, they were cited twice because someone was leaving restaurant and driving drunk got caught. We were not driving but they said they can not serve more than one drink per hour. Will not go back.

Legal Seafood of Framingham is never a disappointment. We met friends on a busy Sat. night. We were seated promptly at a table in a side room which was less noisy. The food was delicious. Since we are watching our carb consumption, we were able to make substitutions for potato and pasta. Ample portions allowed for another small meal the next day.
