Legal Sea Foods - Charles Square

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Located in the courtyard of the Charles Hotel, our restaurant evokes the simple style of the original Legal Sea Foods that was in nearby Inman Square, Cambridge. In warmer months our outside patio reels in those who choose the fresh seafood and fresh air combo.

We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

"Really enjoyed our first dinner here. Somehow missed that it was in our neighborhood. This place has kind of a suburban vibe--it's big yet cozy, very low key-- not an especially hip scene, but the food was all great, with surprisingly good desserts. The service was exceptional. We will definitely come back here."

"Everything about our meal at Legal Seafood was okay, but certainly not exceptional. Food, service, etc were fine. Unfortunately, the food was brought to us so quickly that we were in and out in less than 45 minutes. I never thought I'd mind fast service, but this detracted from the experience of eating out. If I wanted fast food there were many other places I might have chosen."

"Of the dozen or so times I've eaten at a Legal Sea Foods restaurant over the past 5 years or so this particular visit rates as the worst. Dinner took about 50 min to be served after our order was taken, my lobster bisque was barely warm, and the Persian cucumber appetizer was tasted like Peoria cucumbers -- that is nothing special at all.
The waiter and manager were apologetic so I'll chalk all this up to the fact it was New Year's Eve so the third string team was likely working, but still I've come to expect far more from Legal Sea Foods."

"We can count on Legal to make a family gathering special. Our Christmas Eve dinner was delicious all around. The tuna sashimi appetizer was something I looked forward to from previous nights at Legal, and I was not disappointed. Entrees pleased everyone. We split a nicely tart Key Lime pie to top off the meal."
