Description: The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Seafood Nation loves our outpost in Peabody, at the junction of Routes 128 and 114. Those traveling to and from the beaches in Cape Ann are known to jump ship for some fresh catch. And those considering a fishing trip, visit us instead. 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 “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.

I always enjoy the food and the experience has always been good no matter which restaurant I visit during my travels. The place wasn’t crowded at 7:30 and we were treated well though the service was just a little bit slow. The food was excellent!

This is one of the best seafood restaurants in Boston. I always save time to visit at least one of the Legal Seafood restaurants when I travel to Boston. Always worth the visit!

Food was very good here this evening. We had to request dinner rolls. Moscow Mule was served in a glass. No more Copper Mugs here. Paper straws just totally fell apart. There was a $5 not mentioned charge for a small pasta instead of potato. They no longer do baked potatoes. Legal is still good, but more and more becoming a run of the mill chain restaurant. Lobster prices were just plain high.

We had not eaten at this Legal Sea Foods in almost one year. Service and food quality had declined, and we were underwhelmed. We decided to give Legal another try, and we are glad we did. Our food and service were very good, and so much better than the 2017 version.

We will return.
