This food was wonderful. the service was good. The price was as expected all-be-it a touch high. The only thing I'd say is it was very noisy at an 8pm reservation. But it's a bustling spot so I'll take it.

Not a huge fan of Legal seafood - but the waterfront space here made up far that. The food was all very excellent, the service was top notch and the view from dining room is perfect on a nice summer night

Big seafood restaurant located in the Liberty Wharf, Boston. Good variety of fresh seafood, served with a smile. Reasonable prices.

A multi-storey venue right on the waterfront. Really busy even on a weekday - a good selection of dining options inside. The rooftop terrace is a great option for events or private functions.

Legal Harbourside is a great place to eat if you like sea food. It has some of the freshest sea food in the area.

beautifully along the water. The area is designed for
easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are

Legal Harborside is Legal Sea Foods’ 20,000 square foot flagship property on the Boston Waterfront, comprising three floors and three different concepts under one (retractable) roof. You’ll find a nod to our heritage on the first floor hull, with a casual menu of seafood favorites with a twist, an oyster bar and a market. The second floor dining room offers cuisine prepared with sensible creativity for celebratory eating and private dining events. And those that visit the third floor promenade deck will enjoy a four-season rooftop lounge with a retractable glass roof and walls for cocktails and bites. All aboard! Located in the Seaport District, Legal Harborside is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. Legal Test Kitchen (LTK) is directly across the street.
