i have been to several of the Legal Seafoods but I believe this one is best. The food and service is consistent. I had the fishermans platter which was good but to much fried food. I will stick to the sole or fish and chips next time. Desserts are not that great. I wanted a Boston Creme Pie Traditional and... More

If you serve "legal"seafood you should have edible clams, but no the serve these grotesquely lagging clams so full of grit as to be inedible. Haven't these people ever had of little necks? I have a dozen steamers and crab cake appetizer. Crab cake was actually very good but all in all over priced and not fresh. Basically a hipsters... More

I have to admit, was hesitant to try since it is a chain. However, have to admit, the staff made it feel like a local restaurant, and the food was not anything I have ever had in any chain restaurant before. Yes, it may be more expensive than a typical chain like Applebee's or TGIFridays, but you will not regret... More

Six of us ate here and we all had seafood except for one child with a cheese burger. All of the seafood was delicious. The service was excellent. The prices were a bit high for the full seafood and steak dinners. A bowl of chowder or bisque with an appetizer was plenty of food. Ambience was fine, not too noisy.... More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent but I would give this a " Very Good" for an overall revue. Our one complaint was that the poor acoustics made for a very noisy atmosphere in the restaurant. My dinner partner and I could not hear each other speak. The restaurant wasn't over crowded but the noise level was... More

Nice mixed shellfish Appetizers (lobster, shrimp, oysters) shared with another person and I had the mixed grilled fish main (tuna, swordfish, salmon, shrimp, scallops) with broiled kale Cauliflower and fingerling potatoes All good great service yet not "fine dining" Large open space that definitely wasn't private yet didn't get so far as being a roadhouse. It's a restaurant chain, I... More

No one wants to get lost at sea, but those who have a taste for fun do enjoy long visits in our Natick/Framingham restaurant. Beach yourself in our dining room for seafood, rock the boat in our lounge or reel in some fresh catch in our drive-by takeout window. For the home chef, we sell live lobsters to go.
