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.

The restaurant needs an update. Also would like to see a Raw Bar that stands out. After all you are "Legal Seafoods" I did not feel it.

Excellent service - just the right amount of attention. Reasonable noise level - could hear 6 our of the 8 people. Wish there was a way to section off larger groups to give the feeling of privacy.

New waiter who was struggling to keep up with his tables. Food was great and the meal was a bit expensive but I knew that ahead of time.

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

Wonderful friendly staff!! Exquite food and drinks. The prices are mid range but very reasonable and truly you get everything and more for what you pay!! Deserts are amazingly delicious. Intimate settings which allow for private conversations, where you don’t feel other customers or staff are listening in on your conversation!!! I made a reservation my table was ready and my mom and I were seated 15 min earlier!!

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.
