Had not been to LS for some time, had lunch today. I ordered the Portuguese Fisherman's Stew. It was simply fabulous and not too spicy, along with a side of grilled asparagus. My server was Marlene, so pleasant and efficient to round out a wonderful...More

I am a frequent visitor to this restaurant in Burlington. I love that they are so meticulous about allergies, in the event that someone in your party has a shellfish allergy. They actually have a separate person serve that dish! Recently visited and experienced the...More

First- BATHROOMS ARE ATROCIOUS. Smell horrible, sinks moldy, cobwebs and spiderwebs beneath the sinks. Let's go to the positive, service was excellent. Food, App - RI style Calamari, tender and tasty, but a little dry, lacking enough "hots" to balance it out. We both ordered...More

Great sea food that is consistently the best there is. We have never been disappointed. All the dishes that make New England sea food famous are way at the top end of the quality range. They have many locations and we have enjoyed eating at...More

Was very impressed by the service here - our waiter was funny, helpful and attentive. Food was good, a little bland for my taste, but might have just been the dish I had. Rainbow trout was cooked very well, but I hate when the veggies...More

Another fun lunch at Legal. We enjoyed the Rhode Island style calamari, one of our favorite appetizers. Our friendly server, Haley brought extra peppers and lemon, yummy! We each got a salad, Greek and Caesar. The chopped Greek salad was a perfect meal for lunch!...More

Disappointing! We selected Legal Sea Foods Burlington for our 25th Anniversary dinner. We actually live in Denver, and chose this particular restaurant and location because we used to eat here when we were first married and lived in Boston. We happened to be here for...More

We do not get much good seafood in the UK. It's expensive and there are not so many good restaurants. Legal's restaurants are fantastic with great service and a huge menu. There's even one in international departure where I was forced to have another Lobster...More

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. All roads lead to Legal Sea Foods. In this case, we are located near four main highways (Routes 128, 95, 93 and 3) on the first level of the Burlington Mall. Make the most of our convenient restaurant location - come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our entrance-way is marked by a water wall. 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 “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Boston Phoenix, 2009) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.
