Everything from the greeting to seating to service is very good. The lobster mac is very tasty. The Crab Cake Combo is super & graduated from here to the main menus in the Legal Seafood restaurants. I highly recommend the S’mores Cheesecake!

I absolutely love lobster rolls and I am visiting Boston. While at the airport I tried the lobster wrap at ltk. It is mostly lettuce wrap with avocado. It does have some big pieces of lobster but for $30 it is definitely not worth it....More

Legal Test Kitchen (LTK), a Legal Sea Foods concept, ventures into uncharted waters and pushes the boundaries of innovation in premium food and drink. Multicultural dining options and inspired seasonal cocktails cast a wide net in attracting those who have an appetite for fun. Located in the Seaport District, our restaurant is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Bank of America Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. LTK is both a destination and neighborhood hangout and our extended hours of operation make us a late night lure. In season, you can eat sea fare while smelling the salt air in our patio seating.
