Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. 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. A bipartisan favorite, we have occupied the nation’s capital since 1995, anchored across from the Verizon Center and around the corner from the International Spy Museum, National Portrait Gallery and Chinatown. Make waves at our racetrack-shaped bar or sup on seafood underneath the hull-like ceiling in our restaurant’s main dining room. Either way, be presidential and order a cup of our New England Clam Chowder; it’s been served at every Inauguration since 1981. Other accolades include “Best Place for Great Seafood” (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008) and “Best Crab Cakes” (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008)

We really enjoyed the seafood and ate here twice on our trip. One evening we had a great server - Phan who explained the specials and suggested items based on our likes. Large servings - we shared our meals.

Sit at the bar and order from the sides and appetizers - especially if you're not someone with a large appetite. I selected a stuffed potato (with crab) covered with cheese and the side of broccoli. The latter comes with cheese sauce which I chose to leave off. it was very crisp and fresh, and combined I was nicely full. Service was lack luster though and it wasn't crowded... hence the average rating.

Nice place and well located in front of Verizon center. The food was excellent. Our waitresses was awesome. This was the best seafood that I had in several months.

Nice place and well located in front of Verizon center. The seafood is very good and the staff very friendly. Price is ok for Washington. Recommend it for seafood.

We stopped in on our way to the portrait gallery and spy museum. Ama was our server and was an excellent! She was warm and personable, gave great suggestions and overall made our visit! The crab soup was delicious. The crab dip was creamy and thick. I didn't enjoy my entree which was shrimp scallop and fish bake. Compared to the rest of our food it lacked flavor.
