The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.

Legal Sea Foods’ flagship location in Boston’s Theater District is surrounded by hotels and nearby Newbury Street, Copley Square and Boston Common. Just inside you’ll see a two-story cascading fountain, the center-piece of the restaurant.

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 “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Fish and Chips were not good. The fish part was really unidentifiable. The preparation was not good. Very thin slices of fish do not typically make for good fish n chips.

Grilled Haddock was quite good.
Spicy Calamari was also good.

Used to be good. Chowder was excellent. My wife had baked stuffed shrimp that was so salty it was inedible. Really has gone downhill.

Our waitress Emily was training a new waiter. They were both very kind and Service was terrific. The food with Legal is always the best. Love the HUGE wine collection. Definitely worth going to see!

Every time I go to Legal Seafoods I hope the food will be better, but it's not. I think it's gotten too big, too corporate, and has lost its way in terms of taste.

Our service was terrible! Waiter was rude and zero manners...not sure why Legal Seafood hired him in first place...I would suggest THEY get it together and train their employees properly!

Manager went around to every table except ours. It was a quiet lunch hour but our waitress went missing for a good chunk of time by the time I was ready for the check.

I went to catch up with business friends and it was lovely. Since it was a Monday night, it was quiet. They had an excellent wine list and the waitstaff was very knowledgeable and recommended a terrific wine at a good price. I ordered the shrimp pad thai which was very tasty and a healthy portion. I shared a caesar salad which was very good and quite a lot of it. The waitstaff were friendly but not too overbearing.

This is our go to place when we're in Boston. The service is great! Someone at our table had a food allergy and the chef personally brought out something specially made for him. The food is even better from appetizers right through to desserts. We will be back as a group soon.
