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.

Saw a mouse run a cross the floor near where I was sitting
It came from the direction of the kitchen.
Me and my guest inform the staff

I've been to Legal Seafoods many times. This was my most disappointing meal yet. The food was generally overcooked. Appetizers did not come out together ... some were 10 minutes late. On the plus side, the wine was excellent and very moderately priced. Food pricing in general is very fair. It is a high volume restaurant, so expect it to be a bit loud and crowded. Our server was fantastic, but she was quite busy managing a lot of tables.

Dinner for two on New Years Eve. Tasty food. Good service, not intrusive but sufficiently attentive. Comfortable seating.
Easy access from the mall parking lot.
We will definitely return.

Third year here for a nice New Year's Eve dinner. Each time we've had a fantastic time. The food, service, and overall experience is top-notch. Would recommend without hesitation for great seafood, great drinks, and great service.

My wife and I had dinner on New Year Eve at the King of Prussia location. We have been there before and found this restaurant great for a quiet gourmet dinner. On this occasion we notice the fresh fish choices were somewhat limit from our previous visits. But still, we found the tuna steak to be delicious and the different toppings add different flavors to compliment the entree. The only reason I rated the service was that the waitress forgot our clam chowder before serving the main course. She did apologize and asked us if we still wanted to be served. With main entree already at the table, we thought that the chowder would cool to fast. After finishing our main course we had a key lime dessert that was fantastic.

We eat here often usually getting their signature crab cakes. They are always cooked to perfection with plenty of crab not filler.

Legal used to be our go to seafood restaurant. They changed their menu a few years ago and we have not really enjoyed our visits since. The chowder is still good though.

We ate most recently on Christmas Day. The restaurant was packed. Our server was running around like crazy trying to service his tables. No one was busing tables, so our appetizer and soup bowls started to stack up. When dinner arrived, the food runner did not take the dirty plates
It was so busy that when dessert and coffee arrived we received soup spoons for the coffee and ice cream as they could not keep up with the dishes.

I took out my family of four for birthday dinner and reception was great, escorted to our sit and then we got to be served by this guy (Christia). From the beginning he greeted us till the end, he was very arrogant, ignorant, very unhappy to be there to serve guests, not interested to explain the menus. He was very unfriendly. I wanted to request few more things but he was nowhere to be found. Much of the sea food we ordered arrived to our table cold. Some of the condiments that was supposed to be brought with our meal wasn’t there. One of the trout fish grill order was burnt. And when we mentioned the situation, he wasn’t even interested to listen and correct the mistake. He never cared for the service. The only thing he was great at was collecting the plates even before we were done with our meal. It felt like he really insisted us to leave early. It’s so sad to invest time and energy and planning to have a great time with family and ruined the whole event by one guy.

Between the four of us we had crab cakes, fish & chips, seafood casserole and oysters. We all raved about the food. Can’t wait to dine there again. Thanks Legal Seafood for a fantastic night out.

We have been eating here for many years and the food and drinks were always good and the restaurant had a good crowd. This time the food was mediocre and the service was perfunctory. I noticed the restaurant was pretty empty for a Friday night.
