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.

The food was fine, but it is very pricey- it was a very expensive meal for the money.

Legal's has been a "go to" restaurant for us so I am sad to say that this was a poor experience. We were very pleasantly greeted at the hostess stand. We waited 20 minutes for our reserved table. The restaurant was very busy and there was insufficient waitstaff. We waited about 10 minutes before a very harried waiter came with water, and since we knew what we wanted, we both ordered the crab cake combo entree. Server was very quick to bring bread service, and about 20 minutes later someone else brought our entrees. The crab cake was cold and dry; the shrimp was cold and overcooked; and the scallops although cold were very good. Very disappointing.

The food and service as well as the ambiance were all very good and pleasant. It was an enjoyable evening and would appeal to different age groups and different occasions. I have gone to Legal for both casual dining and celebratory dinners. Both have been pleasant and satisfying experiences.

Food was fresh although the cod was a bit bland. Excellent service and decent ambiance for a mall. Unfortunately, at $140 for a family of four, this is strictly a special-occasion restaurant.

The Peabody location is our favorite. Always excellent service and top quality food there. Dined here on Christmas Day. This is our third year dining at Legals on either Christmas Day or Christmas Eve and we look forward to it as it's always an enjoyable experience. I had the twin lobster special which was fantastic. Two decent sized lobsters served with a side of roasted vegetables. My wife had the filet which was cooked to perfection. She has ordered the filet on three different occasions at this Legals and each time it's cooked perfectly and delicious. Obviously, the cooks are trained extremely well here. Wine and cocktails were excellent as was the dessert....Bananas Foster, which came with three scoops of vanilla bean ice cream. Our server Aaron was very attentive and pleasant and willing to accommodate our requests. All in all we were so pleased with our Christmas meal at Legal's in Peabody and look forward to returning soon. It's really our favorite place to dine!
