Even if you're not dining near the water, you know you'll always get Fresh Seafood here. I love the Seared Tuna and the Jasmine Special. Always great service and consistently good food.

Legal Seafood has a wide variety of fresh seafood for a fair price. Legal Seafood has an elegant dining room with great wait staff.

Went for dinner after a long day in Boston and were not disappointed by the food or the service. Started with the Rhode Island style calamari, which was recommended by the server, and was out of this world! My husband and I got the seafood...More

We have been to location several times. The service and food have been really good each time. Lobster roll, fish and chips, and calamari app are our favorites.

I have been a LSF lover for decades, but this Burlington location just cannot get it right. This is now my third really bad experience at this location in recent times, and I give up. This is the last time. Wait staff is inattentive (even...More

The Shrimp cocktail was huge and worth the money. I also had raw oysters that were very large and very good. My spouse had the Baked cod, and he was greatly pleased with his choice. We split the dessert, cheesecake it was just okay.

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.
