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’ve received a boatload of accolades including the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

It was okay. Nothing incredible. It wasn’t anything that I’d go back for anything specific for.

Great service. The waitress cane by several times and was very helpful in giving us ideas of where to go to accomplish what we try to get done.

Fried food is great although it’s grossly overpriced with a few clusters of shellfish and French fries bringing the balance. The waitress came by and served fresh rolls a few times, which was great.

The tartar sauce was a bit too salty. Could tune down a bit.

Fresh seafood cooked to perfection! One of the few places to get full clams not just strips.

After we returned home from our meal at Legal Seafoods we received a nasty-gram from Open Table that we had not honored our reservation. We had clearly announced our reservation time and party name. The tone was accusatory, lecturing and had a "guilty till proven innocent" feel. We replied with our table number and server name and received a curt apology. That mix-up explains why we were seated in a cramped noisy area near the bar and the hostess would not reseat us although there were many empty tables for 2. As for the service, it was disappointing at best. Our waitress came to take our food order before she asked if we would like drinks. The food was very average at best. My baked cod was very bland and tasteless. After the waitress collected our empty plates, she returned with the check, not asking us if we were considering coffee or dessert. Well, that made our decision for us. We have been to this same Legal Seafood establishment many times before but never had an experience so disappointing.

I had the crab cake and salad for lunch. It was positively delicious. All lump crab with very little filler. Caesar salad was a little soggy, but still good.

We had a lovely celebratory dinner. The staff was fabulous. Not the best value, but what can I say, we were celebrating.

Legal Seafood has always been our “go to” for special occasions. I noted it was for a birthday. I didn’t really expect anything, but was disappointed there was no mention of a birthdayby the server. Why did you ask? We had simple meals, yet service was so slow we were there almost 2 1/2 hours. Server was pleasant, however in all that time he never stopped by to refill glasses, etc. he also requested we clear our own placemats before dessert. At 4:30pm I expected much better service. Food was very good, as always

We arrived for a late dinner at 8:45p on a Tuesday night. We were promptly seated on a table on the quiet side of the restaurant opposite the crowd. Normally, I would’ve appreciated this arrangement. However, after the only other table in our area got up to leave, and being that we were eating our meal during the last hour of the restaurant’s operation, the staff began cleaning and vacuuming the immediate area around us mid-meal. That was quite rude and annoying. Not to mention we couldn’t have a conversation until they finished, turned off the vacuum, and left. A good manager would’ve caught that, but nobody did.

Food and service quality was alright, nothing special today, just plan ok. We understand it’s the tail end of the day, but over the years we have come to expect a high level of food and service quality from Legal...sadly the they just didn’t have it today.

Legal is still one of our favs for decades in MA. This was the 2nd time we’ve tried this location in King of Prussia, PA. Sadly, today they didn’t measure up to what we’ve come to expect.

We have always enjoyed Leagal Seafoods. The food is so fresh and the servers and especially the bartender are lovely. It really is our favorite go to restaurant. And added to everything else , the number of gluten free options makes this a perfect lunch after shopping, or mid week quick date night .

We had not been there in a long time and it was even better than I remembered. Great food and our waitress Marissa was very kind, patient and helpful to us in making our choices. We will be back sooner rather than later.

Our large(r) party was mostly fish/seafood eaters and the food certainly met expectations. Two young adults decided instead to share a steak and the order came out on one plate, and our server never bothered to bring a second. (We were very clear about the meal being shared. ) Drinks were standard fare but often we waited for another, and usually it was served one at a time. All in all it was a pleasant evening and the small complementary birthday cake/cupcake made my daughter very happy. Thanks.

I got the special and it was served with sides that were not advertised. ( asparagus was anticipated) Would have appreciated options to something else rather than the choice made for me and just delivered to the table. Dinner rolls were served well into my dinner. Other than mentioned, overall was okay.

We have been going to Legal Sea Foods King of Prussia for many years and have always enjoyed the fresh oysters (especially the Wellfleets) and the terrific steamed lobsters, which are always excellent and well-prepared. Leslie has been our server for several years and we always request her because she is top-notch and a real professional. Hope to continue to enjoy LSF for many ears to come.

I have been a fan of Legal Seafoods for decades. However, lately the quality of the food had gone down and the prices have gone up. I suggest always asking for the price of the dishes marked market price, because it is likely to be astronomical. I don't see the justification for charging over $30 for a lobster roll on the lunch menu.

We went to Legal Sea Foods at KoP while the family visiting in PA. The entrees (salmon, burger, scallops, shrimp) were scrumptious, the wine was exquisite, and the dessert (bananas rum foster and warm brownies) was delicious.

We eat here several times a year and usually love it but the service was terrible. Food was very slow to come out and table was poorly cleared. Maybe not the place to go on a holiday weekend.

We enjoyed our evening. Food was okay, not spectacular. We felt the food was overpriced. Restaurant was lovely, but the floor desperately needed to be vacuumed and Ladies room had only 1 of 3 sinks working. So surprised by that. Not the worst experience but not a great one.

Dinner was fine nothing spectacular.

At the conclusion of the meal while sitting and talking with friends we had a mouse and something else I couldn’t tell (looked like a car or rat) ran across the dining floor.

I will not to back
