The grilled mixed seafood was awesome and waitstaff was very accommodating to a difficult party.
Service & food great- need outdoor heaters
Food wasn’t all of that good
It was such a great time! I absolutely loved the lobster and my boyfriend's meal was excellent as well.
We ate at legal seafoods 3 times during our stay - once for dinner and twice for lunch. Each time we had a very good experience. The food was delicious, the drinks strong but good, and the service was great. Would definitely recommend!
great server scallops were way overcooked. server was really fantastic
Delicious food and great service!! I would recommend.
Always fresh and delicious seafood. Great location too.
Great bartender made the meal. Good food well prepared.
Will go again
This is a favorite venue when we visit Boston. Clearly the Coronavirus has taken its toll on this (and many other) restaurants, so Legal Seafoods was almost empty when we arrived at 7pm on a Sunday. As a result the buzz of this place was completely missing. Staff were fine though perhaps uninspired. The greatest disappointment was that they had no lobster other than a very expensive though pretty average lobster roll. It might be worth checking ahead if this is your choice.
Have not been to this Legal before. It was excellent! Great appetizers, salads, salmon and more. Wonderful, friendly service. Don't forget to get the Ipswich fried clams!!
Everything was awesome from the cocktails to dessert. No complaints!
Steamed Lobster was good! Good locations.
Great food excellent service thank you!!
Beautiful. Our Anniversary was the best Anniversary we have had in years. Thanks to Rick G, and the chefs .
Having "discovered" Legal back in the '70's when it was in Inman Square Somerville, I have been dreaming of their yummy fried clams. Now, feeling desperate for some clams after a long COVID-lock up this summer, I am sad to report that the clams I recently had were not just bad, but terrible. All restaurants are suffering in these challenging times, but Legal better try a bit harder to return to its old delicious food. I will not return - ever.
several reason did not like the clams were a bit tuff in chowder
there was no nutty salmon i think it is called
the brocccoli was super hard
there was no pototo option other than french frys
Love it! Always a great place to eat
Wonderful gluten free choices. Absolutely delicious. Always a great meal.
We specifically went for lobster roll sandwiches. The roll was mediocre. The lobster was supposed to be warm and buttered and it was neither. The french fries were good. The cole slaw was very run of the mill. Overall, the lunch was a big disappointment.
Great food! Service was nice, although my husband was judged by they way he looked, almost didn’t let him find our family in the table
Excellent food and service!! Very clean and many safety measures in place for COVID.
Wonderful-! Lobster was amazing.
Great food, great experience. I will be glad when the offer their full menu again rather than the covid menu.
Awesome night out at Legal's Long Wharf in Boston! Waiter was tremendously friendly and attentive! Food was perfect! Highly recommended!
The jasmine rice was just regular rice :-( - the lobster was great! Salmon was really good - service was outstanding! They did a great job in the current times
Great meal !! Great Service We will go back 100%
Food was good, solid but nothing out of this world.
a little over priced for what you get... for example $18 for one standard size crab cake and a salad though I must say the crab cake was all crab meat so definitely impressed there but it was a little fishy and lacked flavor for my taste. Kids Mac n Cheese was horrendous. Box kraft Mac n cheese and it was so over cooked and dry my kids didn’t touch it. Husband loved the fried clams and his lobster roll.
Excellent customer service. The food was delicious. Highly recommend the place
Awesome food, good atmosphere, great service. I thought it was pricey but it worth the fresh seafood.
Food cafe out food, waitress must have been new didn’t know the menu or drink list I ordered wine and they didn’t have it even though on the menu ordered something else and they didn’t have that as well. We had to ask if they’re was any specials
Food was only ok. I ordered a mojito and it was so strong I could not drink it. My waiter never offered to fill any of our drinks up. The food was overpriced for what we got. My entree was supposed to come with jasmine rice and I got white sticky rice. The ambiance was nice and we were seated at our reserved time. Kids menu is very limited.
My first time dining out since pandemic, and could not have picked a better place - lobster was perfectly cooked, appetizers were excellent. They did not have oysters, but it was ok. Everything was really good and the service was great. Definitely sit outside on the water.
Outstanding food and professional service.
Although the stock was a bit lacking the night of our experience (a large portion of it out of stock) the food was phenomenal and came out with the perfect haste. Would definitely recommend
We had a nice meal an a good time
Excelente comida y bebidas
Legal Seafood was very accomodating. We had reservations for later in the afternoon but they took us early because our boat trip was cancelled due to rain, The food and service was wonderful.
This is the first and only time I have ever written a review, for compelling reasons. I sat there for nearly 30 minutes before I had to get the managers attention and tell them nobody even said hello to me let alone take my order or bring me water. Fork I received (after I had to ask for utensils myself) was deformed and, most importantly, was dirty had a piece of FOOD stuck to it. Horrendous service. I was starving and had no other options at that time of night so I had to eat. Food was good, it is a chain and food is always the same after all, but the service and hygiene was despicable.
