Had a five hour layover in Philly and stopped for a nice sit down dinner on a Wednesday evening around 6pm. The place was full and a 30 minutes wait was expected. We walked the shopping area nearby and waited to be called. It was...More

Legals has always been a very reliable seafood restaurant in Boston, and their expansion down the Atlantic coast was very welcome. I nearly always stop at their airport locations in La Guardia, Reagan, and Logan. Good, mostly healthy, food, and fast service at reasonable prices....More

For breakfast time, we must've had one of the best servers that day; however, the food itself was hit and miss. The pancakes were fine, but the egg whites runny, the bacon was good, but the hash brown potatoes I had to shove to the...More

We think that before long, Philadelphians will be putting down their cheesesteaks and picking up lobster rolls. Located post security, our restaurant is the perfect place to dine or take off with take-out.
