Our server, Alex K., was phenomenal! We were celebrating our daughter’s college graduation and he was so nice and incredibly attentive to our needs. Legals never disappoints and Alex is one of the reasons we’ve never had a bad experience!
Love the new interior!
Waitress was superb. Was good about refilling water, was attentive and very friendly
My friend and I always wanted to try this place so we did last Sunday. We were glad that we reserved because there were people waiting that time. We ordered oysters, lobster roll sandwich, lobster bisque, and the cream pie. All of them were beyond description!!!! So good! Lobster meat were fresh, and the cream pie was just so tasty! Love this place!
We had a great dinner at Legal Sea Foods. Our waitress was amazing! Thank you for your kind service.
Everyone in the party agreed that their food was very good and of great quality. Maybe it was simply the rainy day outside but the ambiance left something to be desired. But that’s okay. Legal is a great place to grab some standard good seafood. And that’s what we got!
Janelle was an amazing server who was extremely attentive and helpful! She made sure that my special Mothers Day celebration with my 2 daughters during their first trip to Boston was excellent!
The staff at the front did not seem prepared to take our reservation but our server Shannon was amazing!
Excellent attention to detail to food allergic people in our party.
Always a great take!
Best baked stuffed lobster ever!!!
Good place to eat near work and waterfront and aquarium. Dependable fare if a bit $$.
I usually love dining at Legals, but this visit was a disappointment. First, we were originally seated in a very crowded section of the restaurant, despite some nice open seats nearby (we requested to move and were kindly reseated). Then we had to send back two set of silverware AND our glasses because they were dirty. (and we’re usually not that picky). To top it all off my Bloody Mary was pretty tasteless, very watered down, but I kept it just because I felt like we were being such a pain. On the flip side, our waitress was friendly and efficient and the oysters and chowder were terrific, as usual.
Thoroughly enjoyed a late night dinner here outside on the patio. Nice to be close to the harbor, although there really isn't a view. And trucks and emergency vehicles passing by can be rather noisy. But overall, the ambience is fun and comfortable. The food is very tasty. (Loved the crabcake combo.) Nice wine selections. And service was outstanding. Ask for Rick. We were very well taken care of. Want to go back!
Great food with fresh catch options...chowder excellent...crab cakes are all crab meat...wow....
Gluten free is such a plus. Perfect kids menu.
Our server made the night go so smoothly with a birthday celebration .
With Legal Sea Food, I expected an excellent, tasty meal, and was quite satisfied. Their bar-setting New England clam chowder set things off just right. The broiled sea scallop-based daily special was really outstanding. If in the Boston area again, I would be happy to bring more than just myself to this establishment.
Harmonie was amazing! Incredible service. So hospitable and knowledgeable. Recommended the Ruby Red Sangria which was delicious. Everything Tuna was delicious. Lou is the best manager!
Legal Seafood is a Boston staple, and we visited the one on Long Wharf. While it is in the middle of a tourist trap, the food is really good, and everything we ordered was delicious! The service was great and attentive. There were many families there with young children (it being next to the Aquarium) which made it very family friendly. This is not a fancy place, but it definitely was good. My only complaint is that my crab cake combo was served on a screaming hot plate (awesome) with a cold salad on the side (not awesome). The salad was a wilted slimy mess. Why do restaurants put cold salads on warm plates? Its a pet peeve of mine.
Long wait times if you do not have a reservation! Great food though.
Our server, Emma is the best. Help with the menu, gave recommendations that were top shelf, efficient and personable without interfering. As far as the food, always excellent
Good for families
Always a favorite stop when we visit the Aquarium. Kids love the 1/2 lobster on kids menu. Favorite items: mussels, Rhode Island style calamari, chowders, crab cakes. Fills up quick around meal times reserve a table! Outdoor seating is beautiful.
Excellent service from waiter, well prepared meal and accommodate our "custom" requests. Very pleasant experience at this old standby, especially for a quick supper before hitting the seasonal ferry service to Provincetown on Friday evenings.
Legal Seafood is a Boston institution for good reason — the fish is fresh, deliciously prepared, with tasty seasonal sides. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions or for no special occasions.
Poor service and food, terrible space. Only for tourists.
Family outing, staff most accommodating to small children with food choices and service. Legal’s food is always dependable, great experience
We had a reservation to sit in the dining area, but Janelle (bartender) was so nice, we stayed and had dinner in the bar.
Vibrant, friendly, good service, good food. Fun busy place.
Thank you for being knowledgeable and accommodating for food allergies!
Food was adequate and the service was OK,however the food was brought up far too quickly,which gave the impresssion that the restaurant was far to keen on getting covers in rather than letting people relax and enjoy the occasion.
Even asked by the waiter if we wanted to take the wine home instead of drinking up in the restaurant.
We didn’t expect “ fast food “ service at this place.
Great food and service.
Boston was very pricey and this restaurant was no exception
this is one of my favorite restaurants - although a chain in Boston, its awesome, and the Wharf is my favorite of all their locations. They are so organized and turn tables quickly - I can imagine trying to go without a reservation though..... so unless you are mid week and very early or late, Make a reservation. I tried the Haddock on Monday - it was cooked to perfection, as was the broccoli - hard to get broccoli perfect! - my favorite is the Crab Cake Combo.
Crab cakes were very good, but the fish in the fish variety selection was kind of over-cooked. Scallops a little rubbery; fish a little tough, shrimp were good. Not bad, but not great.
Nice ambiance and the wait staff was very pleasant and helpful.
A lunch visit after the New England Aquarium. Great place to bring your kids to, they are very accommodating. Made the reservation, and added the kid seats on site without any issues. Great service team, they were attentive and helpful.
Wonderful food. Halibut was excellent.
Always have excellent service and always so kind to our 2 kids!
Pricey. Food was not great. Felt like a tourist trap.
We loved our server, she was great. The food was delicious.
This is our 3rd weekend trip to Boston and we go to Legal Seafoods at least twice ea time. Crab cakes and tuna are AMAzING. As is the king crab. And service was A++. Would recommend reservations as its very popular!
