Description: Legal Harborside is Legal Sea Foods’ 20,000 square foot flagship property on the Boston Waterfront, comprising three floors and three different concepts under one (retractable) roof. You’ll find a nod to our heritage on the first floor hull, with a casual menu of seafood favorites with a twist, an oyster bar and a market. The second floor dining room offers cuisine prepared with sensible creativity for celebratory eating and private dining events. And those that visit the third floor promenade deck will enjoy a four-season rooftop lounge with a retractable glass roof and walls for cocktails and bites. All aboard! Located in the Seaport District, Legal Harborside is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. Legal Test Kitchen (LTK) is directly across the street.

I was here for a party where they served a very broad array of food, all of which was outstanding. I particularly enjoyed the oysters and the steamed shrimp, which were gigantic. The sushi was also excellent. Would love to return.

I had a delicious meal here while on a business trip. The lobster roll was excellent with large chunks of lobster, very light sauce, no filler. Service was very good considering how busy it was. Try to get a seat with a view of the water as it’s a beautiful location.

We visited this several years ago during the summer and decided to do so again on a lovely Sunday afternoon recently.
While there was a queue to get into the rooftop bar, it moved quickly and was not overcrowded which was welcome.
Service, considering the volume of people, is very good.
The rooftop bar is primarily there for socializing, so the menu is focused more on drinks. Food-wise, the sushi and oysters are very good, though.

Great seafood but the drinks are pricy.
Fried clams are fresh and can’t be beat. The crab roll was such a large portion of lump crab, it made a great meal..
beer was good as always but seems a little over priced.
The location can’t be beat. Harbor side of Boston.

An excellent recommendation from a colleague. Service was very friendly and prompt. I would say an above average NE Clam Chowder. I had the grilled swordfish for dinner and it was one of the best. Would definitely visit this location again on my next trip.
