    There has to be better seafood places in Boston than here. Long John Silvers maybe?

    Many good things on the meny, but the last couple of times here, seems like they want you through the system as fast as possible. It loses a bit of its charm if you are still at starter when main arr.

  • Matt M.

    Crab cake was delicious, as was the broth-based chowder, which is GF.

    Crab legs and blueberry cheesecake!

    Suzanne Fordham · August 30
  • Devin S.

    Not that great for the money.

    The buffalo shrimp is pretty good. The crab cakes and Fish and Chips are so so. Great dining area, though. The setting allows for intimate conversation while keeping you social.

    The food is fantastic and the service is top notch. Ask about the specials, and definitely get the clam chowder.

    A New England institution that's expanded along the Atlantic Coast. One of its claim to fame: Its New England clam chowder has been served at every U.S. presidential election since 1981.

    E. B. · May 13, 2014
  • Stewart M.

    Delicious chowders (clam and fish), possibly the longest wine list in Boston, quick and friendly service, a massive seafood menu with lots of daily specials, and a 'special but informal' atmosphere

    Stewart M · April 14, 2014
  • Kara F.

    Not worth the price. Slow service and just like red lobster but a step up

    Kara Franco · March 1, 2014
  • Sara S.

    The lobster bake is a wayyyyy better deal than ordering items separately if you want more than just a lobster

    They claim you aren't allowed to substitute sides, even though all other Legal locations allow you to substitute sides.

    Get the Thai Calamari! It's evolved over the years and I think better than ever now.

    Mike Scaviola · October 9, 2011
  • Graham J.

    If they're still serving it, GET THE SOFT-SHELL CRAB. It is, without a doubt, the best I've ever had. Crispy thin tempura excellently done.
