Description: 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.

I'm not sure if its my tastes or because this is a large seafood chain. The seafood was decent. I had the lobster roll and it was ok.. not anything spectacular. The clam chowder was very good, and they have a decent wine selection. We were there with a very large party, so It would be interesting to go back with a smaller group to see if there is a difference.

The servers were great. I've just had better seafood in other places and Im not sure what all the hype is about.

The cioppino was fantastic. The place was busy but the was a huge staff that was constantly working. It is a well run operations Ignore the fact that it's at a mall.

If you go to Boston, you need to have Lobster, and you should go to Legal Sea Food. My wife and I went there three nights out of 5 and had the best meal and the best time. Our waitress was Ashley!

We'd seen a show on the Legal Seafood On TV and were keen to try it our first night in New England, we were not disappointed. When the hostess found out we were visiting from the Vancouver BC area, she mentioned it to one of the managers who came over and made us feel very welcome. Dinner was excellent. We shared the Boston Clam Chowder which was delicious and we each had the crab cake combo or server recommended which also included prawns and scallops. Delicious!
