Went to Legal on a weekend, without a reservation, and we still had a fantastic time. I go to this Legal every mother's day for the last 10 years at least ( I think closer to 20). Every time but once we've had fantastic service, wonderful food and nice atmosphere. Our latest visit was a couple months ago, just at... More

This was our second time visiting this Legal Sea Foods and it is well worth the stop. Service was excellent and so were our meals. Our waitress was very attentive and fun.

Stopped here for lunch during a business trip. The food was wonderful with everyone enjoying their various fish dishes. The place had a nice elegant atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great meal for a family dinner. We had various meals and they all were superb. Good wine list and reasonable prices for seafood. Love this location and we go back when we are back in town.

Loved my dinner here tonight. Started with the perfect shrimp cocktail... Legal has perhaps my favorite one, perfect shrimp and sauce to match. My simple steamed lobster, about 2 lbs, was fantastic... tender, so flavorful... one of the best I've had here. Served with good, not great sides.. mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay rounded out the meal.... More

I have been to the Framingham chain of Legals many time. I have never ever had a quality piece of fish at this chain. The worst, was when I got a fish that was a 'special' (a fish that is mixed with herbs or other items) That fish was so old that I could only eat a couple of bites.... More

At least once a month the Framingham location of Legal has fresh oysters available for $1.00 each. I and a friend try to make every opportunity to enjoy them and a beer or two. Occasionally, my wife and I will visit this restaurant for a dinner. Food is always good. Price is fair. Volumn of noise is acceptable.

I spent my meal staring out a window that faced a busy parking lot and road. The front windows really need to be treated. If you sit in the bar don't face out at the main parking lot. Better yet, stick to the dinning room. The food was clean and nice. Steamers were unique and the mussels were very tasty.... More

Had the grilled swordfish and a cup of chowder. Chowder is among the best in the region but the swordfish was a bit overdone. Not dry enough to send back, but this is a seafood place right? If you have the time, go to Sturbridge Seafood instead, but make reservations. You'll be glad you did.

No one wants to get lost at sea, but those who have a taste for fun do enjoy long visits in our Natick/Framingham restaurant. Beach yourself in our dining room for seafood, rock the boat in our lounge or reel in some fresh catch in our drive-by takeout window. For the home chef, we sell live lobsters to go.
