Had heard a lot about this place and wanted to try it. Ambience was great, the restaurant is tastefully decorated and spacious. Fish and Chips was just so-so; breading was not adhering to fish very well and appeared a little like their fryer oil was...More

We have dined at Legal Sea Foods at the North Shore Mall, and it has been consistently good. Our most recent trip featured the same excellent food, but the Service was awful this time-consistently so, in fact, as each course was delivered very late, and...More

I believe we were after the evening dinner rush so the restaurant was not particularly busy. As a result we received prompt, attentive service by professional wait staff. Of course the chowder was excellent. I had the cioppino and it was excellent - chock full...More

The various types of seafood are all fresh and well prepared. The service was fine. My only misgiving is that the prices seemed over the top. $40-50 per person not including drinks is a bit much for they give you, although it is tasty.

Legal seafood has been at the NS Mall for many years. I love the chowder. The seafood is very expensive for the mall. I have had much better seafood at a reasonable price elsewhere on the North Shore. I ordered grilled haddock which was overcooked...More

We have been patronizing Legal Sea Foods at the North Shore Mall for years. The restaurant was remodeled last year, and has a nice, upscale look. The food remains every bit as good as it has been for years, and the service is good too....More

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.
