I always go to Legal sea food to meet colleagues and for informal meetings. They have really good food (some of the dishes can be quite expensive) good place to what games as well.

Good place to catch up with friends. Food excellent and you're not rushed to either order or leave the restaurant.

Went for an early supper with a co-worker and was pleasantly surprised. I am from coastal New Brunswick resort town so have lots of seafood restaurants locally. This restaurant had a good selection of dishes and the one I chose was very tasty. The waiter...More

Legal Sea Food delivers. It's always good, solid food, but it's not anything innovative or exciting. If there is one thing to criticize, the waiter was pretty slow. The restaurant is very child friendly. The wine list is surprisingly affordable priced.

The spicy fish and chips were very good and the clam chowder was amazing. The wait staff could have been more attentive, but otherwise I enjoyed my meal.

During a work trip Legal Seafood was recommended to me so I drove to mall. Not your typical Mall restaurants but was expecting just a touch more. I had the lobster bisque which was really good followed by Sushi which was good but nothing special...More

Reliable quality seafood. Chowder rich and ample clams. Shrimp Louisiana Gumbo very tasty. Lobster roll exorbitantly priced considering lobster now cheap since China will not buy US lobster due to tariffs. $36 for lobster roll at lunch!! Too small to share.

The food was absolutely delicious: slaw and fried crab sandwich. Service was more relaxed than I expected: I found myself looking for the server well before she was looking for me, and she did not have lots of tables to deal with. Restaurant was easy...More

The lobster bisque was good. The sangria was good. I was really expecting more of a variety on the menu. Just settled for the bisque.

Went on a Sunday lunchtime about midday, so they weren't packed.. Was seated right in front of the very busy kitchen doors, asked to be moved, no problem. Ordered the tuna sashimi starter, ( it was good, not great, but good), and the steamed mussels...More

I think Legal will be open and serving on Thanksgiving but you should really contact them to find out, learn what they will be serving and make a reservation.

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.
