We had a wonderful lunch. I enjoyed the Baked Cod which is a traditional dish at Legal. My husband had the seafood casserole, this too has been on the menu for a long time! Both delightful! Service was great. Legal consistently delivers high quality dishes.

I cannot recommend this location unless big improvements made. Makes me wonder if Legal Sea Foods is no longer a high quality restaurant group I remember when living in Boston.

An excellent choice for a special occasion. Service was fast and efficient. We doubled-down on appetizers. The lobster bisque was rich and creamy and the jumbo shrimp cocktail was--as the name indicates--jumbo and plentiful. I thought their cocktail sauce could have had more tang. The shishami tuna was excellent and they offered a warm and sweet butternut squash side that melted in your mouth. All in all, an excellent dining experience!

Excellent food. My salmon was fresh and very tasty. I started out with a chowder for an appetizer. This was one of the best chowder's I have ever eaten. Our waiter, Keith was very helpful in our selections for dinner and was very attentative to our needs. Can't wait to go back for dinner real soon.

This was our first time at a Legal seafood restaurant and we really enjoyed it.
We both had diferent Salmon dishes that were amazing and our waiter was excellent. He kept on top of things and was always attentive to our needs.
Would highly recommend this seafood restaurant and will definitely return.

We were very disappointed with the Warwick RI location compared to other LegalSeafood restaurants. The meals were bland and expensive for what we got. We had previously fined her and it was always better but this was truly disappointing!

We won't be stopping in again!

4 of us met here for a business lunch. 2 meals were good, the other 2 were excellent, personal opinions of course. Our waitress was very friendly and delivered our drinks and food within a reasonable time. This is not an upscale place but a nice place to go, a little noisy while we were there. Would go back again if in the area.

this must have been the oldest and run down legal seafoods i have been to. it looked more like a seafood shack. and would be well suited to the 65 years and up crowd. I would drive to dedham legal C bar any day rather than go here.

Good food and excellent waiter service, the only thing that let it down was the front of house staff. Initially we were welcomed but were left standing waiting to be seated while the hostess did nothing. The restaurant was not busy but we still stood around for about five minutes before another member of staff seated us. We were completely ignored when we left when again the hostess was stood doing nothing. Fortunately the wait staff was excellent as was the food but not a welcoming atmosphere.

We had a great meal for my birthday. I have Celiac disease and always worry eating out when traveling. Our server was awesome, he knew exactly how to help me. There were so many options I couldn't figure out what to order! All of my food was brought out by the manager herself so I knew it was safe to eat. We are visiting for a few weeks and will be frequenting Legal Seafoods. A little on the spendy side but worth it!

I found the lobster sub par. It may be the way it was prepared but I've had much better at significantly less cost. The waiter was attentive and the facility was clean. A bit pricey. For two baked stuffed lobster dinners and a bottle of Sancerre with gratuity came to $220.

We took our guests from NH and FL visiting with us in RI to Legal Sea Food to celebrate our friendship together, and it was a phenomenal time of reminiscing, eating good food, and conversation. One of our party was partially blind and elderly (91 years young) who was also very pleased with the food and attention given by your wait staff. She was the greatest. We would do it over again to meet there to enjoy the food, and to have another wonderful time together.
