I was in the Philly Airport and didn’t plan on dining there but I’d heard great things about the restaurant and not disappointed. The Crab Cakes were all crab meat and delicious. The tuna was fresh and prepared perfectly. Excellent, efficient service.

We had salads, fish and chips and a lobster roll. Our waitress was terrific and friendly. She gladly substituted seaweed salad for the Cole slaw. Meals quickly arrived hot and the beer cold. Super yummy and recommended!

Legals has always been a very reliable seafood restaurant in Boston, and their expansion down the Atlantic coast was very welcome. I nearly always stop at their airport locations in La Guardia, Reagan, and Logan. Good, mostly healthy, food, and fast service at reasonable prices....More
