We like the food here and the service! The atmosphere is better than in Chestnut hill and gets a better crowd.

I am from the midwest and love seafood. We ate at a number of places, many of which were quite good. But this is absolutely great quality seafood. Superb. Fresh, succulent, not complicated, but some nice unusual presntations and sides. Comfortable. Great staff. Will go again.

We arrived early afternoon on New Year's Eve. We asked to sit by the hostess said there were no tables available. We pointed out a booth in the corner and were told that there was no waiter for that table. As we sere being seated at another table-a different hostess sat a couple at the empty table we had pointed out and a waiter promptly took there order! Not a good start. Our waitress apologized for the "oversite". She quickly brought fresh warm buns over. My husband ordered the fried clams and I ordered 12 oysters on the 1/2 shell. The clams were clean, tender and cooked to perfection. My oysters were cold, fresh and sweet. They were shucked correctly (separated from the shell on the bottom). I then ordered the clam chowder; it was very good and creamy but allot of potatoes. I would definitely go back.

I eat at Legals twice a week and it is the freshest, has the best selection, and great quality is the most consistent. Since I have been dining there over ten years the menu, wine list, and atmosphere have always gotten better. My favorites are Crabcake, Rasam Seafood Soup, Wild Salmon, Selection of Oysters, Steamers, Fried Clams, Lobster Roll. The wine selection and prices are really good. The service staff, managers are all friendly. I have eaten at Park Square, Prudential, Copley, Waterfront, Harvard Sq, Kendal Sq, Chestnut Hill, Braintree, Framingham, Washington DC, Logan Airport, and can tell you no seafood chain is as consistent as Legals is.

As a native of Seattle, I was told Legal Seafood was the best seafood in Boston. It doesnt even compare to NW seafood. The special (mahi-mahi w/ a half of lobster tail) was ok. I liked the sauce but the lobster was chewy & not very good. However, my seafood soup (red based) as a started was wonderful & flavorable.

Last visit to Legal. Gets worse every time. Management needs to pay attention to criticisms, cause about all that's left are tourists. Much better seafood in town elsewhere, and the service is horrid. Waiting 10 mninutes for a glass of water is ridiculous. Stuffed lobster was more greasy buttered ritz crackers than stuffing.
