I really wanted to experience a local favourite seafood restaurant but was shocked to find the A list ones all booked weeks in advance. I had no luck with any same-day reservations, and the thought of 'risking it' and driving around car-miserable Boston was not...More

Had the seafood casserole. Packed with large scallops, King prawns and some lobster and white fish. A little garlic sherry sauce and a crumble top. Tasty! Polenta was not so good.

We visit the east coast multiple times a year and while (imo) kennebunkports "The Clam Shack" is still literally the best lobsta roll on the planet this was a very close second. Worth it from anywhere.

While shopping at the Burlington Mall, I started to feel hungry so I asked the clerk at a shop if she could recommend a good restaurant to eat, because I was less than excited about trying any of the places at the mall’s Food Court....More

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.
