Came in for a late lunch, about 230P. As expected, not very full, maybe 12 - 15 people in the dining area. Seat-to-eat time was about 10 min. We had Fried Oysters (yum), Baked Lobster, Fried Clams, and Grilled Chicken Sandwich (shellfish allergy). Lobster was...More

I went with a large business group and they all liked it. I find Legal Seafood's menu to be restricted and over priced. The food was average. I will continue to try to avoid them.

Great food and atmosphere. Highly recommended by local coworkers. This was my first time in Legal and was not disappointed. I had the baked lobster and their onions strings and jalapeño polenta. The baked lobster is the full tail with a stuffing -like on top...More

This Legal Seafood is the one nearest to where I live. Overall the chain has very good to at times excellent seafood. Prices tend to be on the high side. A 3lb stuffed Lobster will run you about $85+ At Café Escadrille, the same size(much...More

When visiting, we never fail to eat at least once at Legal. We also always spring for the very expensive lobster rolls. They are always delicious, and always very generously sized. This time, the roll seemed smaller, although it still had a lot of lobster....More

I love coming here - good food, good service, and the rolls are the best. I'm a creature of habit and always get a shrimp cocktail and house salad, extra rolls, and the pomegranate martini. Wish I didn't have to deal with mall parking, but...More

For couples fine. Groups of four or more tend to be a problem. It seems that at least one of the meals wont be cooked properly and have to be sent back. This means that most of the group will go ahead and start eating...More

The food at Legals in Burlington is typically very good. The service can be excellent. The problem is the wait. There is always a long wait because it is in the mall. I find all the food to be good. The clam chowder, both the...More

This is the place to go for a European person, who is not used to American food. They serve nice seafood and it is good value for money. My colleagues and I always visit this restaurant or another Legal Sea Food branch when visiting the...More

I love Legal's - the quality is always high even though the price is also high. That said if you are going to have good seafood you must expect the price. The oysters are always fresh and having variety makes it an adventure. There is...More

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. All roads lead to Legal Sea Foods. In this case, we are located near four main highways (Routes 128, 95, 93 and 3) on the first level of the Burlington Mall. Make the most of our convenient restaurant location - come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our entrance-way is marked by a water wall. 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 “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Boston Phoenix, 2009) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.
