Legal Sea Food is one of my favorites eateries. Haven't tried anything I don't like yet. Trout is excellent. Simple fish and chips are elevated to a gourmet plate. The halibut (not always available) is to die for. But my all times favorites are the...More

I love seafood, so my standards are high. I thought Legal Seafood was an average. Not great, and not bad. The service was good and professional. I would eat at seafood again.

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods - really fresh fish. Virginia is for lovers (of seafood)! Our two-story restaurant is double the fun with entrances on both levels for easy entree. Choose to make a splash in the downstairs dining room or in the bar upstairs. Our landscaped interior patio is also a popular lure. Our convenient restaurant location within Tysons Galleria will get you hooked. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there's no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker. We've received a boatload of accolades including "Best Place for Great Seafood" (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008), "Best Crab Cakes" (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.
