Seafood
Our location in Braintree is making a splash. Designed to evoke memories of vintage seafood restaurants, the space offers as many seating options as fish in the sea. Most notable are the three bars – including an oyster bar and food bar along the exposed kitchen – to satisfy any thirst (or hunger) for fun. In warm weather, a glass wall slides back to a large patio. Our menu includes all the Legal Sea Foods classics, but also some specialties of the house that will reel you in. />We’re located right off of Route 93 in South Shore Place, across the street from South Shore Plaza.

Fun spot! Excellent service, and food was delish, which we have come to expect. The menu changes just often enough to keep it interesting.

I was dining alone for Thanksgiving which was a first for me. My waitress was very attentive and the manager gave me a complimentary entire meal except for my adult beverages. I felt so special. It was very touching.

After our Thansgiving dinner plans changed, Legal was able to accommodate our last-minute reservations.
From the time we entered, the hostesses, the bar staff and our server were friendly, informed about the unique items on the menu, and super-professional.
Although the restaurant was busy, they all kept an eye on our table, refilling drinks and water, and removing empty plates, without hovering. The food met Legal's high standards - appetizer and entrees were served quickly and were absolutely delicious - flavorful, without fuss, hearty without being heavy.
The professionalism of the staff - even the manager stopped by to briefly check in - made the entire meal a relaxing pleasure.
Thank you, Legal Braintree!!!

Arriving in from Vermont tired, our waitress whom we’ve had on two previous visits remembered us and where we were from. Made us feel most welcomed.

Food and service excellent as usual. The only problem was our reservation wasn’t honored on time and we were seated 40 minutes after our reservation.

Have to hand it to the chef who cooked the brussel sprouts; they taste great! The crab cake was not bad either. The bon bons dessert could use a thinner layer of chocolate, maybe slightly more dark and less sweet since the ice cream will take over the sweetness.

We had a very nice and leisurely lunch, with excellent service. The kale in the kale salad had rather a lot of big stems in it but it was flavorful. We appreciated not being rushed but being well tended to. The crab cake was good.

Excellent sea food. Dedicated gluten free fryer, so you can have fish and chips! No gluten free desserts , however. Seafood is always fresh and well-prepared.

I was very disappointed in the service. My server had a very bad attitude from the time she walked to our table until it was time to leave. The fact that my guest and was so uncomfortable we just settled for drinks and appetizers wasn’t fair.

Our server, Joanne, was OUTSTANDING!!! Knowledgeable about the menu, drinks and extremely attentive. Food was excellent. As ordered. We both had variations of the same thing. They (the kitchen) screwed up SO's sides but Joanne made it right ASAP! Not our first time there but she's by far the best server we've ever had. Will request her when we're back.

We are clearly older (both white-haired) and the hostess thoughtlessly seated us at a high-top. The server noticed our discomfort and moved us to a booth in another station, where we were able to sit comfortably and enjoy our lunch. We do find Legal a little pricey (two cups of bisque, two luncheon entrees and two soft drinks added up to approximately $75.00 after the tip) but the food was wonderful and the service top-notch (thank you to Kathy and Brian).

Great chain and food generally good, arrived cold and not to what we expected so our fault for not asking. Bartender very nice and got our order in right away. Kitchen must have been slow. Would go back again and will ask about what t meal prep rather than assume.

We waited 10-15 min for water /rolls. Another 20 for our appetizer and then had to ask if our meal was coming We go here fairly frequently. The restaurant was nit that busy. Very frustrating

My shrimp was overcooked and broccoli was awful

Not a great night out
