    The best Legal! Atmosphere and food is always great. Try the seafood stew.

    Wanted to try a stuffie, but it's only served with a hot dog. So, I had a lobster roll instead without cold slaw and fries. Sometimes, you just want the roll.

    Totally overrated and so douchey. Better go to the Barking Crab and be happy

  • Jamie L.

    My party got the specials for the day and everyone was happy. The raw shellfish platter is pretty good, though the crab is frozen, and vegetarian options aren't bad either (few though they are ha).

    Worth your attention. Nice views, salty breeze, and kind staff all add to the experience. Can't go wrong with a lobster bake (next time, I'll get a bigger one). Calamari rocks.

    This restaurant has three floors—and three dining options—to choose from. The 1st floor is a typical Legal’s, with an outdoor deck; the 2nd is fine dining while the 3rd floor serves cocktails Read more

    Located just across the harbor from the airport. Perfect spot to grab a last clam chawda bowl before flying out.
