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

Seafood Nation loves our outpost in Peabody, at the junction of Routes 128 and 114. Those traveling to and from the beaches in Cape Ann are known to jump ship for some fresh catch. And those considering a fishing trip, visit us instead.

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 went there to get away from legal c bar in Lynnfield. And they changed the one at the mall to c bar. Of course. C bar has a limited menu — so annoying. We want normal legal seafoods back. Bring back the fish shaped ravioli for kids! Nut encrusted salmon and mahi-mahi! Chef specials!

    Overall a fair experience. The service was not great. I have celiac disease so only order gluten-free options. The waiter did not come across as knowledgeable about gluten-free safety so it made it an uncomfortable meal. It was disappointing as Legal Seafood is normally a good experience.

    We ate outside on a beautiful night. We usually go to Legal C Bar so this was a change for us. The patio was not crowded but the seating needs some work. The prices at Legal warrant a little more than picnic tables, IMHO. The food and service were good.

    It’s gone downhill a lot I frequent the Burlington location and I always found a good one of my favorite places chances are I won’t be going back again to any of the legal seafoods menu has changed very limited just wasn’t happy with the place I know it’s under new ownership it’ll never be what it used to be that’s for sure.

    The interior was redesigned. No wall or barrier segregating the entrance and check in area. Our table was right behind it so it was cold and loud. They also built these long continuous tables and put an 8 inch divider at intervals. So you're literally rubbing elbows and seated with strangers unless you're lucky enough to get a booth or other table. We had a reservation and asked for a different table. Although we could see empty ones, we were told no.

    Service was good but we felt rushed. A door kept blowing open and it was windy and cold. We were sitting very close to it. Didn’t seem to be a Huge sense of urgency when I approached the front reservation desk. Almost like I was bothering her when I asked about it.

    The staff at Legal Seafoods in Peabody took wonderful care of us as we celebrated a family member’s birthday. They accommodated my request for a quiet table, and surprised us with complimentary dessert. Our server, Kim, was excellent, and all the meals were delicious. The fisherman’s platter wasn’t greasy at all, and the cioppino was delicious, with ample broth and loads of fresh seafood. A great evening, thank you!

    We wanted to have a good seafood dinner. I ordered the grilled swordfish was very flavorful and juicy. The side I picked was the farro salad and Cole slaw. While both sides we good the farro salad blew me away. My wife ordered the grey sole that came with roasted Yukon potatoes and steamed green beans. She loved her meal. Great ambiance! Great food! Great service!

    Food quality was not up to what I have come to expect from Legal Seafoods. Service was also not great, especially considering how few customers there were. Gluten free choices were good, as was sushi that my gluten free guest selected.
