The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Our restaurant is located inside The Mall at Short Hills on the lower level. You may choose to beach yourself in our dining room or at our bar. Either way, we’ll think you walk on water - be sure to see our aquarium of koi fish built into the floor.

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 being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

I ordered the Shrimp Casserole with the Jasmine Rice. The rice was sticky, the casserole was over cooked, stuck to the pan, and extremely dry. I was at the Short Hills location with my husband for date night, had been wanting to there for a while...wanted some real seafood, not the Red Lobster stuff.

Unfortunately, my food was horrible, I actually missed the Red Lobster stuff, and had at $90+ bill to pay for terrible food. I will NEVER go there again! I guess I will have to go to the shore to get good seafood.

Another bad lunch, this will be my final meal here. It has become such poor quality. I always get the Crispy Fish Sandwich. The fish was not crispy and cold. They remade it for me which was better but this seems to always happen. I even had to stop getting fries because they tasted like cardboard. I will never patronize this establishment again!

Raw Oysters were awesome. Crabcake like 1% bread all crab meat. Thai calamari is great. Try crab cake combo meal.

A little break from the exhausting routine...lunch was great. We had fun. The Mrs had tuna burger...was really good but portion a bit much for her (but she rose to the occasion). The spiced crusted tuna is an option for rare grilled tuna on the lunch menu...perfect! Service quite excellent today. Recommend.

You know what you get when you come to LSF. No matter what LFS you take food is always good and quality same. I have found that service varies in places. Here it is always somehow slow even waitresses running all the time. About the food, lobsters are always good choice and you cannot choose wrong from catch from the day list.
