Seafood
See fish. Eat fish. Enjoy ocean-side dining just steps from the New England Aquarium. Our restaurant couldn’t be more convenient to the Financial District, Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall and waterfront hotels such as the Boston Harbor Hotel, Marriott and Intercontinental. Long Wharf is home port for many cruise ships and whale watches, while Duck Tours and Old Town Trolleys see the sights and then make a stop for seafood right outside our door. We think a visit to Boston must include a meal at Legal Sea Foods. If you’re looking for some fun, eat in our lounge where you’ll see what’s cooking in our open kitchen. Or, during the warmer months, dine in our patio if you opt for the fresh seafood and fresh air combo. Our in-restaurant lobster tank keeps kids entertained.

Our experience was simply outstanding. We had oysters, cold crab app, lobster roll, swordfish, and wine/bread. The food was wonderful, but the absolute best was our server. He was personable, but his recommendations (and stories) really helped us make the best choices.

The service was very good, but the food was disappointing. I ordered filet minion with the intention of sharing with my son. They split the steak and served it on 2 plates which was good, but the steak was cut in half before cooking. We were served 2 overcooked 3 to 4 ounce steaks. My daughter ordered the simply grilled haddock without butter. The fish and vegetables were served drenched in oil. My wife ordered the baked haddock, and it was overcooked, dry, and bland. I can’t what happened to one of Boston’s finest restaurants.

I was very disappointed by the food. They changed the menu and our favorites were no longer there. We had fish and chips and the salmon nicoise. They were just ok. Where is the amazing Legal seafood I am used to. Quite disappointing,

Legal seafood is an expensive Red Lobster. I felt like I was in a cafeteria. We ended up leaving after the appetizer and going across the street to the Chart House.

The servers were doing their beat to serve a number of large parties. One of whose members were intoxicated, loud and flaunting COVID rules. We were happy to leave after appetizers.

There are reasons Legal Seafood has been around as long as it has!!
As always and as it’s reputation reflects, everything was awesome! Of course we had to have the New England baked haddock & Lobster dinner! Yum!!! We will be back...

It was my mother's 83rd birthday and the staff was just lovely. They wore party hats that we brought in. They bought dessert for the table in her honor. They were just wonderful to her. They were so patient when we showed up late due to traffic. It was a great day!

Legal Seafood is an iconic restaurant in Boston for New England style seafood. The clam chowder is a great example of the regional specialty.
