Seafood
The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Legal Sea Foods is a Philly favorite. Surrounded by hotels and near both the Valley Forge Convention Center and Valley Forge National Historic Site, we are at a mall entrance on the upper level of the Court.

Guests get reeled in by our buzz-worthy lounge and comfortable dining room. Half-shell hedonists may sit at our 10-seat horse-shoe shaped oyster bar where slurping is encouraged.

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 had a terrific meal of soup, oysters and clams, haddock and stuffed shrimp. Service was excellent and the restaurant was quiet and uncrowded for an early Friday dinner in October. Everything was fresh and well prepared.

I ordered the crab combo. Wow! The scallops were so sweet and the crab cake was equally as good as I remembered. The wedge is different now substituting smoked salmon for bacon. Same smoky goodness. Loved my meal! Server was young,jovial with blonde curly hair. Very accommodating. Can't wait to go back.

We had an early 4:00 dinner reservation. Only 4-5 tables were occupied. The food was great (Lobster Mac & Cheese and Surf & Turf with Stuffed Shrimp). The waitress provided excellent service. We will return!

Was very disappointed on our latest visit. Have eaten here many times before. Fried calamari was overly salted (and should be served with something OTHER than tartar sauce - think marinara or an aioli. Advertised an IPA on draft that was not available (no IPA was). We were told there was no bread available (not that we necessarily wanted it, but how does LEGAL not have access to bread?). Unfortunately the experience was so disappointing that we've taken it off of our go to list. There are too many other places out there....

Need to bring the raw bar back. Place I think came there in 2004. Needs renovation. Too dark. Tablecloths would help. Needs to be commensurate with price. I’ve been a regular thru the years.

Oysters were good.

Service was great.

Entrees were a bit bland. Both mine and my wife’s entrees needed something… maybe salt I don’t know. I’m typically not a salt guy but it seemed like the food was just one step away from being great. Little disappointed there but overall good.

Prices were probably on point if the food was amazing, but it wasn’t.

We’ll try out a few more places before heading back over there, but I wouldn’t say it’s off our list.

We enjoyed our evening and our dinner. The restaurant was reasonably full. The servers were masked. It was nice to have Legal Seafood open again as it is very nice casual place for seafood. My wife particularly liked her red Sangria. The white wine by the glass selection was a bit weak. I though there was too much Sauvignon blanc based wines by the glass and wish they had had at least one by the glass Alsace, Chablis or Meursault option available. My wife and I really enjoyed our fried calamari appetizer. I thought that my breaded fried clams main dish were a bit too breaded and the taste of the clam was missing in many of the pieces. This is not a dish I would order again. My wife really enjoyed her grilled salmon with Cajon spice. The French fries were excellent. We split the key lime pie dissert. It was fantastic. Our server was great

I love this place, but came there when it were 2 groups of people that were really loud. I had the Gulf Market or the lobster stuffed with scallops and shrimp. I was a waste of time and money. I would have done better getting a lobster roll.

Was sadly disappointed with my visit yesterday to Legal Seafoods in King of Prussia. After a lengthy close from COVID, I was happy to learn they had reopened. Our reservation was at 6:00 and barely a handful of guests were in the restaurant which I found somewhat surprising.

After looking at the menu, I noticed one of our long time favorites, the cream of crab soup which i looked forward to enjoying (and the main reason for the visit) was no longer on the menu. A lobster soup has replaced the cream of crab. HUGE mistake in my opinion. Crab has immensely more flavor than lobster and holds up better in soup, but I digress. Our waiter tried to explain the scaled down menu which reflected both food and drink items no longer available as well as a few new items. Prices seemed slightly higher compared to preCOVID.

My Caesar salad was ok but barely had dressing and I asked for more. What I received was very good, and looked and tasted different from what was on the salad. Overall I was disappointed with the visit and hope somehow the vibrant atmosphere and more extensive menu return. Probably won’t go back anytime soon.

Our service was top notch this evening. We had oysters which were fresh and delicate. The table ordered several new items off the menu. Everything was fresh and properly cooked. The filet mignon was delicious, the haddock was a large portion cooked just right and the stuffed shrimp were top notch and cooked just enough with a super delicious buerre blanc sauce.

Wife and I were celebrating an anniversary. We decided to sit at the bar. Food was outstanding and the service was excellent. However, the was a lot of dirty dishes and glasses being managed at the bar. Seemed like there should be a better system for managing the bussing. Bartenders touched many dirty items then made very intricate hands on drinks with little hand washing in between.
