Love Legal Seafood. Very fresh seafood, great choices, deliciously prepared. My only negative comment is the noise level, which is the reason we usually go early, before the dinner crowd. Noise or not, terrific seafood!

Legal Sea Foods is a little bit on the pricey side for what you get in my opinion, but the food is really good so if you're looking to splurge a little this is not a bad option. Came here for lunch with friends and...More

Description
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.
