Are here with colleagues and it was up to usual standard. Had excellent Tuna and nice glass of wine. Service was really good. Only slight disappointment was the calamari which tasted like frozen packer food. Convenient location in the mall

I pop into Legal Seafood now and again because it is local to me and I love New England seafood. I grew up on Cape Cod and my family members were fishermen. It is really hard to find a good seafood restaurant. This one does...More

Mahi Mahi tacos were on the cold side. We felt rushed. The server seemed only interested in clearing the table as each person finished. A simple "can I take that away for you" would have been appreciated.

Have been here plenty of times of the last 10+ years. And I haven't been disappointed. I do like the walk-in high tables. I don't recall ever having to wait, and if, not long, to get a seat. Prices are at the upper end of...More

Very good place of the famous chain located in the Burlington Mall area. We had a fantastic lobster: fresh and tasty. Usual friendly atmosphere.

So it's a little "touristy" to eat at Legals but it's also a great seafood restaurant. The prices reflect the quality and the reputation. Seafood is expensive but your also buying a name here. Wait staff have always been very good and I can't say...More

Great food , our Waitress was very helpful and made it a pleasant evening. Did not rush us although they were extremely busy. Pricey but still worth the visit.

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.
