    I pretty much always order the Cajun grilled shrimp with seaweed salad, and jasmine rice with shandong sauce. So good!

    I went in there after couple of advices. Fishes are decent however the beer platter was a disaster. Just stick with fresh fishes.

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    Food is amazing, scallops, shrimp, scrod....even the steak is great! Unfortunately the service was terrible - it fell way short of what I expect in the US. Try Legal, but go to another branch.

    Еда вкусная, выбор сифуда хороший, обслуживание хорошее. Вроде все хорошо, но... как-то немного фастфудно, даже непонятно почему, но впечатление такое.
