The chowder was excellent! The bowl of chowder was large enough for a meal. Everyone in our party of 4 had a different item from the menu and everyone was more than satisfied with their meal. The waitress was great as well!

After hearing about this chain for years, I finally went. A little disappointed. Good but overwhelming. Size of crabcake small and fried clams, good but not great.

Our new location in Braintree is making a splash. Designed to evoke memories of vintage seafood restaurants, the space offers as many seating options as fish in the sea. Those looking to satisfy any thirst (or hunger) for fun, can choose between our bar, oyster bar or table and booth seating alongside the open kitchen. In warm weather, a glass wall slides back to a large patio. Our menu includes all the Legal Sea Foods classics, but also some specialties of the house that will reel you in. And our late night menu, available Monday through Saturday, begins two hours before close. We're located right off of Route 93 in South Shore Place, across the street from South Shore Plaza.
