Our previous visit was for a seminar my wife attended in the winter of 2002, I believe. During a 5 day stay we ate at 3 different Legal Sea Foods in the downtown area. The first was so good, we kept looking for more. This...More

One of several locations in the city for an authentic lobster roll, clam chowder, or both. Conveniently located in Copley Place Mall if you happen to stay at the Westin or Marriott on either end of the mall.

The seafood is fresh, excellently prepared and tastes great. The sides are also delicious. A bit pricey but well worth it.

Over the last 17 years we've eaten here many times and while they used to be 5 stars, I'd only give them 4 now. The food is nice, and the lobster rolls are probably the best and meatiest, but overall it's not outstanding. The salad...More

We know shopping induces hunger - and Legal Sea Foods reels in those who want to splash down for a meal or grab-and-go. Our restaurant is located on the upper level of Copley Place, with direct indoor access to both the Westin and Marriott hotels as well as to the Prudential Center. Panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Boston's historic South End. Here the views and the seafood are second to none.
