My first visit to a Legal Seafood. This was a great meal. I had a lobster roll for the first time. I loved it. I had it warm with butter. Highly recommend.

Legal is an outstanding brand from its origins in Inman Square to its rapid expansion out to Boston, the suburbs and beyond. The issue is the price point and value. The locations are packed with tight overcrowded seating since more people eating, the more the...More

If you love seafood, definitely go to Legal Seafoods. It's a bit on the pricey side but the food is delicious and fresh. Went on Easter and the service and food were impeccable.

Are here with colleagues and it was up to usual standard. Had excellent Tuna and nice glass of wine. Service was really good. Only slight disappointment was the calamari which tasted like frozen packer food. Convenient location in the mall

I pop into Legal Seafood now and again because it is local to me and I love New England seafood. I grew up on Cape Cod and my family members were fishermen. It is really hard to find a good seafood restaurant. This one does...More

Mahi Mahi tacos were on the cold side. We felt rushed. The server seemed only interested in clearing the table as each person finished. A simple "can I take that away for you" would have been appreciated.

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.
