5 stars!! Are you crazy!!

No, sorry....where do you people normally eat? Mcdonalds?? It was good, I guess. And yes, I had the premier "lobster 3 course" dinner, and had a dozen oysters for appetizers. Ok....I guess I didn't eat what you had. And it was decent, 3 stars, but 5 stars!?? It's a food factory, it's not fine dining by any means. Sorry to burst your bubble. If you're looking for good decent food at standard prices with ok service, ... view more

consistently good seafood

I've eaten at several Legal Seafood locations and I find the seafood and other menu choices to be consistently good, the service to be friendly, and the ambiance pleasant. I recommend Legal over other Boston Seafood Restaurants and cant help but wonder if some of the the sniping is planted by the competition.

Not the only choice for seafood

In a city that is literally right on the water, many visitors end up at Legal Sea Foods, looking for that ""authentic"" seafood experience. Which is a shame, considering there is better seafood to be had in Boston at lower prices. Legal Sea Foods is fine, if not generic, and most definitely over-priced. Their chowder is thick and slightly gloopy, but the French bread rolls are delicious. Fish is cooked well, but ... view more

Good if you like well done

I have been to this place several times. Their motto: ""if it isn't fresh, it isn't legal"" is a joke. Everything is always so overcooked, you would never be able to tell if it were fresh or not. My litmus test for a good seafood restaurant is whether or not they can properly cook a rare tuna steak. Legal failed this test not once, but twice at two different locations! Over the years, we have sampled lobster, an... view more

Overpriced, Red Lobster

When you travel to the coast you hope to eat a great seafood dinner. This place was a joke! We ordered wine and our apppetizer and were asked not once, but four times to please place our order, long before the appetizer ever arrived. To be honest, we were waiting to see and taste the appetizer because the place reaked of the smell of FRIED fish and I was worried about the quality. Our waitress finally got rude and to... view more

Avoid the Clam chowder

My friends and I each had a bowl of the New England Clam chowder and it was a major disappointment. One of my friends didn't even finish their bowl. The chowder had no flavor and it was watered down. I have had better clam chowder out of a can. The service was good, but I will try never try this restaurant again.

Best Clam Chowder in Boston and my favorite restaurant.

Ive eaten at most of the locations. The quality of the food is always consistent and the clam chowder is amazing. For lunch, try the spicy fish and chips. Its not too bad so dont worry. I took my friend here when he came to visit me from San Diego. He loved it. Had the baked scrod. \r \r If youre visiting here for the first time, you have to come here at least once. My favorite locations are the one on the waterfro... view more
