3 hour layover and was looking for something besides a fast food place. This place has a varied menu specializing in Sea food, and also a full bar. The Chowders are flavorful (Crab and also Clam). The crab cakes are mostly crab meat with very little filler, and very tasty. The fish sandwich with fries and cole slaw was a... More

Timing of your flight can really throw off meal time when you travel. The Queen and I were flying out of Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and we arrived just in time for dinner. Knowing we both love seafood, she picked Legal Sea Foods. We really enjoyed our meal without paying too much. The Queen started with a cup of New... More

I had a two hour layover at the Philadelphia airport and decided to eat breakfast. I searched the options amd decided on Legal Seafoods. The American Breakfast is good. Brioch toast, crisp on the outside - soft inside, Applewood bacon, scrambled eggs. I also ordered coffee. The coffee was great. Awesome. This meal cost $3 more than Sinewy or Wendy's.... More

The food is excellent, the drinks strong, and the service quick at Legal Seafood. Prices are reasonable too. This is a great airport option.

Service was great and the food was pretty good. Would eat there again, should we find ourselves in PIA and hungry at breakfast time. A couple of caveats though: potatoes were previously frozen and not too good; all the jellies #1 ingredient is High Fructose Corn Syrup (Google it) which is a big turn-off for those of us who like...

Tasty but could be better. Cream of crab soup had a wonderful flavor but woefully inadequate crab and we halved a Salmon salad that also was good except for the wrinkled old tomatoes. So close to being very good.

I eat here every time I fly out of PHL - at least 4 to 6 times a year. They are always attentive and accommodating. My celiac disease makes eating in restaurants prior to a flight somewhat problematic, but I know I am safe eating here. I usually take a table even though I am a party of one and... More

Was ready for a beer and wanted to watch end of Iron Bowl and Penn State Mich St games. Legal always has good food and cold beer. My wife had a mug of chowder and I got tuna sashimi. Both were very good. Fast and friendly service.

Went solo to a pre-Heathrow flight supper in the Philadelphia airport, where there are not a lot of great options. Legal is a very decent chain that provides the fast service necessary in airport circumstances. I had a shellfish sampler ($10.95) ok for the modest price, plus a very generous platter of fried calamari for just $13.95. Wine is relatively... More

Terrific fried calamari, Caesar Salad was decent but needed more lemon and garlic, croutons were lovely but a bit large. Service was very good.

  • Location: United States  >  Pennsylvania (PA)  >  Philadelphia

  • This restaurant is at Philadelphia Intl Airport (after security)
We think that before long, Philadelphians will be putting down their cheesesteaks and picking up lobster rolls. Located post security, our restaurant is the perfect place to dine or take off with take-out.
