Nathalie really wanted to eat here. So we did. Food wasnt bad either from what I remember. I usually only use this place as a meeting point and bar to go elsewhere. Butwas not disappointed that I finally tried it.
Favorite Dish: The chowder was not as good as everyone says it is. Luckily I was pleasantly surprised with the steak. That really was one of the better ones I had had in Boston up to the time. We were here on March 15, 2003.
Visiting Boston and not eating at Legal Seafood ? No.
I was there twice (1996 and 1999) and it was very good and fresh both times. So I suppose it still is now.
What struck me as funny the first time was, that it was quite full and they gave you a pager, so they can call you when a table gets free. With that Pager you donýt have to sit around, but can go shopping at the Prudential Centre..
(but take care, my friend almost got a heart attack when the pager vibrated). :-)
Favorite Dish: Seafood all over
and Salad with blue cheese.
My wife was in seventh heaven here! Being able to buy her favourite seafood by the half pound just made her day (much better than Dirty Harry LOL!).
Funny thing is that we wouldn't have even gone to this great place if a really friendly waiter at the boston hard Rock Cafe hadn't told us about it. Great guy he was & we were really thankful he did give us the tip. And of course we tipped him quite generously in response
Favorite Dish: Well no prizes for guessing what she had. Yes, yet again you are correct folks! the Lobster indeed. And....., she was a good girl indeed, no mornay just lovely fresh lobster, but only ababy half pound one. boy did she enjoy that!
But I start before the start!
We both started the New England clam Chowder. What else could we remotely entertain the idea of starting with when we'd been out on the sub zero Boston streets. And boy did it hit the spot. Yummo barely begins to describe it.
But what did he have you ask. Well, if you've visited my Paris page & seen the restaurant tips you will definitely get no prizes for guessing. Of course it was, Salmon - Atlantic Salmon. How can all those healthy Omega oils be just do delicious. Don't know, don't care! They are & that's all that matters!
Can't remember what we paid, so I'm guessing below. Remember though that we both thought that it was very reasonable.
This New England chain has since migrated from Boston to New York. I already know of at least three in the 50 mile radius of my home.
We just loved this place when we visited a few years ago (Boston). The decor was nautical in nature and the dining area was huge. Lots of families and very kid friendly.
The dishes were delicious! Clam chowder, lobster (bigger than I ever seen), clams, mussels, scallops, salmon, tuna and swordfish.
Definately have a seafood dish.. Highly recommended no matter what location. The experience will be pretty equal.
Just as the title says, Legal Sea Foods is known nation wide for its absolutely delicious chowder, New England Clam Chowder that is. When I was living in Boston, I was able to eat at this establishment many times. Back then there was only one site, now there are numerous sites. Just about anything you eat here is going to be good, although I have to admit that it's not out of this world. The atmosphere isn't the greatest either. For me it's rather rushed. It is a kid friendly place and they even will give the little ones crayons and a small coloring booklet to help keep them occupied. Your service here really depends on the waiter or waitress you get, it's hit or miss. I have to admit that it's never been terrible, but there is definately some mediocrity there.
Favorite Dish: THE NEW ENGLAND CLAM CHOWDER
Legal Sea Foods is one of the top seafood restaurants in a city known for its seafood. There are several locations throughout the city, and after a few expansions, they now extend into other parts of the country. Legal claims that all seafood is served within 48 hours of catch (even the Alaskan salmon!), and their excellent New England Clam Chowder (or just "chowda" if you want to sound like a local) has been served at the last 6 presidential inaugurations.
My favorite locations are downtown at Long Wharf and in the Burlington Mall. Both offer great meals like swordfish, salmon, lobsters, for between $20 and $30, all guaranteed to be consumed within 24 hours of their catch. The moderately upscale yet relaxing environment has a good beer and wine selection, and the downtown location has some nice outdoor seating with a view of the Aquarium and IMAX theater.
You often have a long one hour+ wait to get a table at Legal. Tip: at most of their restaurants you can sit at the counter or at the tall tables with no wait, they are first-come, first-serve.
You should try the cram chowder... yummy.... it tastes so good~~ And their serving is huge.... hahaha if you are not too hungry, don't over order your food !! Their lobsters are great too... and not to mention, their fresh osyters too...
Favorite Dish: Cram Chowder and Lobster
I haven't tried many seafood restaurants in Boston and I am sure there are better (at least that is what I have heard), but Legal Sea Foods is my favorite place for seafood in Boston. I have always had a great meal and a great time here and make it a point to eat here every time I go to Boston.
There are many locations, but I have always eaten at the Long Wharf location by the Aquarium. Legal Sea Foods has recently opened restaurants all over the east coast, but started in Boston.
The service is very good, and the menu has a nice selection. On some busy nights, prepare to wait 30 minutes to more than an hour for a table. Dress is casual.
Legal Sea Foods is open daily for lunch and dinner.
Favorite Dish: The New England clam chowder is some of the best I have ever had. The raw oysters and steamed mussels are very good.
Definitely try the lobster or any of the fish (swordfish, tuna, scrod).
If you want a good sampler of the menu, try either the lobster bake (lobster, steamers, mussels, corn, clam chowder, and a side) or the fisherman's platter (fried shrimp, scallops, calamari, clams, and haddock).
Legal Sea Foods have five restaurants in Boston. Two of them are located at the Airport, so you can guarantee yourself a delicious meal before travelling home!
I met a guy on the airplane who was taking home a huge take-away container full of the chowder - a true fan! You can also buy the chowder on their website and have it mailed to yourself or a friend, saving yourself the hassle of carrying it on the plane! (I would be sure to spill!)
The food is delicious, and the ambience quiet and relaxing.
Favorite Dish: The Boston Clam Chowder is perfect - if it is not "Award Winning" it should be!!
Basically anything is delicious, my favorite (after the chowder!) is the Seared Ahi - yum!
The surrondings may be modern but the food is to everyone's liking. I believe that this is the best seafood restaurant in Boston. The prices are high but so is the quality of the food that they offer. You will not find a better seafood restaurant in the heart of Boston.
Favorite Dish: The clam chowder and the lobster are tops on my list. My daughter worked for this restaurant when she was going to school in Boston and she was hghly impressed with all the dishes that Legal Seafood prepares.
