This Legal is in Copley Place, a bit hard to find but worth the trek. Crab cake and Crabmeat Roll were entree selections and they were favorites, unlike the Yankee fans who infiltrated enemy territory.

The food was amazing, as was the service. Certainly a must stop if you have the opportunity. Highly suggest the lobster roll and RI calamari

I received prompt, friendly service and a really good meal. The fish taco that I had was memorably delicious: the crispy fish was very well cooked, the chipotle mayo was piquant, and the other elements in the taco were nicely complementary.

Had the lobster roll butter poached and it was delicious. RI calamari was good as well. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. A bit pricey, but it's Boston.

While visiting Boston from the Arizona desert, I needed to get my fix of fresh seafood. Legal Sea Foods was conveniently located and looked nice enough, so I ventured in, twice. Although I would have preferred a few more combination options, the food that I...More

Had Clam Chowder, Seafood Trio: Shrimp, Whitefish, Calamari and Pan Seared Sea Scallops! Servings were huge and more than I expected! Will come back for more!

This new location for Legal Seafood is much larger than their previous location in this area offers the usual dishes one can find at their other locations. However, for some reason, all the dishes we had fell flat from the aspect of taste and satisfaction....More

Delicious, great service, New England staple. Been here on both my trips to Boston. Great service and fantastic food. Wins best Clam Chowder over and over. FDA resource for safe handling of seafood. Great experience.

We know shopping induces hunger - and Legal Sea Foods reels in those who want to splash down for a meal or grab-and-go. Our restaurant is located on the upper level of Copley Place, with direct indoor access to both the Westin and Marriott hotels as well as to the Prudential Center. Panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Boston's historic South End. Here the views and the seafood are second to none.
