Ordered Caesar salad with grilled salmon. Salmon cooked perfectly. Caesar was very limp, no crunch and not chilled enough. Otherwise, Portuguese stew and drinks were very good. Jose an excellent waiter.

Though more upscale than the original, this branch of the Legal Seafood chain does a good job providing the same excellent fresh fish that customers have long associated with the name. Our dinner here was quite good. Service was brisk but friendly and every item...More

Legal unfortunately ruined our Thanksgiving turkey dinner by serving my meal with gravy that had been burnt. The first mouthful produced a bitter smokey after taste. How that could go unnoticed is beyond me as anyone with a decent palate could have tasted that. The...More

It’s always a pleasure to eat there. It’s a bit same same as the dishes are not changing frequently. The difference makes the waitresses Vanessa who is very friendly, attentive paired with her lovely European personality

If you don't mind HI Prices.. I don't think you have to answer that! Legal seafood in Boston is the way to go! They have the best food and service too.

Our new location in Braintree is making a splash. Designed to evoke memories of vintage seafood restaurants, the space offers as many seating options as fish in the sea. Those looking to satisfy any thirst (or hunger) for fun, can choose between our bar, oyster bar or table and booth seating alongside the open kitchen. In warm weather, a glass wall slides back to a large patio. Our menu includes all the Legal Sea Foods classics, but also some specialties of the house that will reel you in. And our late night menu, available Monday through Saturday, begins two hours before close. We're located right off of Route 93 in South Shore Place, across the street from South Shore Plaza.
