    Fine for steamers, which they almost always have, but the rest is just average.

    Steamed Lobster 2 - 2.5lb, awesome. Baked cod was meh. Clam Chowder Soup; Order in bowl is more worthy than in cup. Chocolate Warm Cake Pudding for dessert, it's fantastic!

    The wood plank broiled platter is a lot of food and tasty. Can't go wrong by going raw. Paper placemats give a Red Lobster feel to what sells itself as an upscale place.

    Since 1981, Legal’s clam chowder has been served at every presidential inauguration. The tender clams, fresh cream and secret herbs must be extraordinary indeed to unite our two rancorous parties.
