Legal Seafoods has been around for more than 50 years. They have built an excellent reputation with fresh fish & other kinds of seafood. Their clam chowder is delicious & their raw oysters are amazing! The lobster here is a bit expensive but the taste is good. Everything I`ve ever ordered on their menu has been delicious. I`ve never walked away disappointed.
There is a location at The Prudential on Boylston St. Always a line for lunch (best time to go) so be prepared!
Favorite Dish: Try the baked stuffed schrod w/ mashed potatoes. A basket of mussels. Clam chowder. Soft shell crab sandwich in the summertime.
The restaurant was reccommend to us by a shopkeeper.
Abience was nice but not overly fancy. We shared a bowl of clam chowder (Fabulous!!!), lobster tail, and mussles and clams, and corn on the cob. Cost about $35US. Also had martini for $9!!! Wanted to try some seafood, and most was good, but the mussels and clams I could do without. The meal was definetly enough to share! But next time would order my own chowder, 'cause it was amazing! Waitress was alright but I got the impression our service was lacking becuase we were sharing a plate, and so the bill would be less.
Favorite Dish: The chowder, hands down! I have never had clam chowder before, but this was thick but not too rich, with nice chunks and no fishy flavor at all. Very nice.
Legal Seafood is a New England Chain that offers a wide variety of seafood of outstanding quality. In addition to the food, they also have a good beer and wine selection as well.
We ate at the Legal Seafood by the Aquarium and it is almost always crowded. Expect a wait to be seated or hang out at the bar. It's worth the wait!
Favorite Dish: The Clam Chowder is one of their specalties and they claim to have served it at the last six Presidential Inaugurations.
I also had the Lobster Ravioli. It was good but not as good as the Lobster Ravioli that they make at Strega in Boston (see elsewhere).
Check out their fresh catch as well!
Legal Sea Foods - This half-century old restaurant chain is one of my personal favorites. It's sooo good that it was named in 1979 as 'Best Seafood Restaurant' by Boston Globe reader's poll; it's sooo good that their chowder was served in 1981 at the Presidential Inauguration; it's sooo good that a mobile 'Chowda Van' traveled to Superbowl XXXI to serve thousands of fans. What's best of all is that they've expanded to Long Island, New York, Washington DC, Maryland, New Jersey, Florida. There's even one at the Boston Longan Airport.
Favorite Dish: New England Chowder, of course!
they serve the best sea food assortments among the three joints that i've tasted (the other is No Name Restaurant and Philipp's Oyster House).
Favorite Dish: the assrted steamers, oysters, the clam chowda (chowder) and the maine lobsters.
they serve the best sea food assortments among the three joints that i've tasted (the other is No Name Restaurant and Philipp's Oyster House) and this is part two of my Legal Sea Food Tips with more pictures.
Favorite Dish: the assorted sea food extravaganza, what else.
Skip Legal Seafood. Extreme amount of money for the inverse quality of the experience. I would say skip it and check out some of the more interesting places with character.
Once upon a time, Legal Seafood was a great underdog in the industry. Cutting out the middle man and handling things themselves, Legal WAS a "cut above the rest". But success was too good to Legal.
But do remember, if you don't go, you'll never get a chance to experience Legal Seafood again (unless you're in Virginia, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Mass, Maryland, Florida, or the District of Columbia)
Favorite Dish: Water, because I wasn't paying for it.
I am not sure if the problems we had with service here were due to an overwhelming crowd from the Boston marathon being held earlier in the day or if it is always like that there. I had made reservations online with opentable.com MONTHS before the scheduled date of our dining experience, however, we had to wait for about 15-20 minutes for our table. I expect to be seated immediately when I have reserved an exact time for my meal. Aside from the wait, everything else seemed to be going very well until all of our party except for my husband and I (so 6 others) were served their food together. It was another 20 minutes later and after much complaining that we finally received our meals. The waiter never apologized for the problems, but the manager was sent over to the table to make nice-nice with us. He did end up taking both of our meals off of the bill, which was very nice.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Lobster Ravioli. It was very delicious, but was not enough food. I should have ordered a bowl of clam chowder and if I had known how little food I was to receive, I would have.
While the ambience was pretty cool, I've had better seafood in the Midwestern US. Truly a disappointment with everything that you hear about Boston seafood. I guess that's what I get for going to a chain.
Favorite Dish: Crab cakes were okay.
As you know, coming to Boston without having seafood....it means that you didn't come to Boston! Because the world famous sea restaurant is here! Seafood Legal has many locations around Boston but I prefer to go to Prudential because of the easy way to get there - just take a green line subway. The restaurant is pretty big itself! Please, avoid to go there especially on the game day! You will find that there're lots of hungry customers waiting on the line. But actually, you don't have to wait there because host will give you a peeping machine to notify you that it reaches your queue so you can shop and walk around the prudent center!
Favorite Dish: I love Sea Gumbo :) Because of its tender meat of big shimp and perfect gravy source!
