We were part of a large group for a conference and this was our pre-paid dinner meal. We had a great selection of food, chowder, lobster, corn on the cob. Went home stuffed. Good food and service

OK, so they moved the location to the upper level of the mall from near the Huntington St entrance. Not sure why but it was a bit quiet than I remember. Still serving their classic clam chowder and theirbmust have lobster. Consistent and good quality!!

We ordered the crab cakes and the Fisherman's Platter, both to share for 2 and each was delicious. The crab cake as an appetizer would have been enough for 1 person as a meal. As a Canadian, our portion sizes are so much smaller that...More

Overall the signage in Boston is pretty poor, and finding Legal Seafood on the third floor inside a high end mall was much more difficult than it should have been due to a serious shortage of any signage. That said, the food was delicious. We...More

You might find yourself standing on the corner wondering where the restaurant is. Looking around, you won't see it because it's upstairs, inside the mall. Enter through the door by the Brazilian restaurant and head up the escalator. My chowder wasn't very thick nor was...More

We know shopping induces hunger - and Legal Sea Foods reels in those who want to splash down for a meal or grab-and-go. Our restaurant is located on the upper level of Copley Place, with direct indoor access to both the Westin and Marriott hotels as well as to the Prudential Center. Panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Boston's historic South End. Here the views and the seafood are second to none.
