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’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.

I thought the food was good - not great. I got the stuffed Haddock, which was OK. I wouldn't get it again. The greens were nice, but slightly under done. For $28, I was expecting a tastier meal. They do make great clam chowder.

We received good service and the food s great. My husband got the crab cake platter and he loved it. I had the swordfish and it was excellent. We also had a shrimp cocktail and it was great - good size shrimp.

The seafood as usual was superb. My haddock was fresh and flaky, and I had some tasty shandong sauce to liven it up, along with jasmine rice and fresh spinach. Plenty of food, so had enough for a leftover meal. Noticed that the prices keep going up ($25 and up for most fresh cuts of fish, $10 and up for a glass of wine, etc.) - will likely only dine here on special occasions from now on. Service was decent, and atmosphere was quiet enough to enjoy ourselves.

There was no wait which was nice. The food tasted good although the coconut shrimp was over cooked, the clams were fine.

The night would have been perfect but you were all sold out of the dessert special. I was so excited to try it and when it came time to order it you were out of it. I was disappointed because I usually do not get dessert. Everything else was great. Waiter was EXCELLENT.

Legals is my go-to for seafood. I absolutely love the popcorn shrimp. I hasve been getting their classic lemon caper sole for years and it is consistently great. Service is always efficient and pleasant.
