Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Get reeled in to our U-shaped bar or wood-paneled dining room. Those traveling to and from Cape Cod on Route 93 are known to make a stopover for seafood. And not to be missed: two monumental fish tanks in our restaurant, one fresh water and one salt water. 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.

“Great GF seafood & service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I usually stop in here on my way home from Boston. Service is always great. (I only sit at the bar, btw.) and the GF rolls and menu are fab.

“The one redeeming feature of South Shore Plaza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Consistenly good - would recommend the crab cakes - probably some of the best I have ever had.
It is busy and buzzing so eating on your own can be a little intimidating but the staff are all very friendly.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

I love the crab cakes at Legal Seafood. They are the best I've tasted on either coast. But this visit was sadly disappointing. I don't know what they did to the crab cakes but they tasted overly salty and almost burned on the outside. And someone went nuts with the salt shaker? Everything we ordered was salty, the worst being the mashed potatoes which we couldn't eat. Definitely not up to par on this day, but I won't give up on Legal's crab cakes!

“As good as ever”

Excellent service and quality food. It is good to have a consistently good restaurant for the non adventurous days! We eat here at least every week.
