This location never let's you down, no matter how busy they are from the servers to the quality of food preparation. We went as a family and children are cared for. Thank you yet again.

The waitress was never to be found, once she came we ordered the following : cup of clam chowder, house salad that came with the wrong dressing, we ordered a kids grilled cheese sandwich, some dumplings...

This is a BUSY location. If you don't have a reservation, be prepared to wait. My wife loves LS and we always try to find one if it's near mealtime. This one is located in the Burlington mall, parking is no issue. We had a light supper since we needed to get to bed for an early morning flight. My... More

Went in last evening and Kristin (Ozzie) was the bar staff that spent her evening making sure that I was taken care of. Her knowledge of the menu, including specials, was perfect. Great personality and very polite. Maybe I'm the grumpy old man, "Get off my lawn you young whippersnappers!" (not really) but manners matter and "No problem" as a... More

After hours of walking through the mall, taking a late afternoon break for a delicious bowl of Clam Chowder and a great Bloody Mary at Legal Sea Foods was the relief we needed. Since there are no Legal Seafoods in the area we live in it is always a treat we look for while shopping in the Boston area. The... More

Started coming to Legal when our other stand by restaurant let us down. We come for lunch once a month & get the Portuguese Stew & a sushi roll. The stew is filled with clams, mussels & chorizo with delicious grilled sliced crusty bread. The bread is best eaten after it's absorbed the deliciousness of the stew. The sushi rolls... More

This is a great place for appetizers or dinner after work as well as lunch. We enjoyed the steamed wontons, trout with mild Cajun spice, and fish sandwich. All food was well prepared and yummy. Service was friendly and professional.

One of our special night restaurants hits a big goose egg. The entire menu has changed and they stopped "Baked Potatoes" three weeks ago and you only can get Rice, Rice, or mashed. The menu had "Spinich" with every item. (Ugg). We had a reservation and were on time. The restaurant was empty and the smart hostess asked with a... 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.
