A pleasant ambiance and exceptional service. I had light meal so I can't comment on a fish. I assume it's not a restaurant for salad. Caesar salad was boooooring! Large chunk of salad and 3 large cubes of bread. Side dish mushrooms were well done but a little to oily. Yet if I am in a neighborhood I will try... More

I had their fried fish sandwich which I learned was pollock. I detected a bit of a fishy taste while eating the sandwich but after finishing the sandwich I ate the bit of fish that hung out beyond the roll. It was very fishy-tasting. I think the tartar sauce covered the taste while on the roll. I couldn't sent it... More

Stopped at Legal Seafood for lunch while Christmas shopping at the Garden State Plaza. Lunch menus were conveniently placed on the bar so I could start looking right away. Enjoyed a glass of wine and started with a cup of Lobster Bisque. The bisque was delicious, but no crackers. Next I had the grilled Haddock which was one of the... More

Our server was extremely attentive, friendly and accommodating and when she found out that we were celebrating my mother's 82nd birthday, she comped her a delicious dessert. Great customer service. The salmon and stuffed lobster were deliciously prepared. The ambiance was serene. Prices are a bit exorbitant, but it was a celebration and well worth the cost.

Stopped in to order a take out Lobster Roll. The Host was very kind, even adding two cups of Chowder to our take out bag as a gift. Roll was perfect and chowder was awesome!

Very good restaurant with an impressive interior, accented with models of sailing ships. Crab cakes were excellent. The pace of meals, though, was rather slow. Ketchup as an offered sauce for a crab cake, IMHO, was not appropriate.

Loved everything about the lunch we had here. Seafood is really excellent, well cooked, well served and all you could ask for. The waitress was excellent and attentive without being over the top. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone visiting Boston.
