Legal Sea Foods - Crystal City

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.

For all those who love seafood in Crystal City, the world really can be your oyster. Choose from among the 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish we serve simply prepared, 365 days a year.

In season, our patio seating is a lure for those who choose the fresh seafood and fresh air combo.

Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. We’ve received a boatload of accolades including being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

"my wife and I had our anniversary dinner there and i was not satisfied with the taste of the greens nor the shrimp casserole I ordered as they both had no taste. I tried to eat as much as I could but could not based on the taste."

"They cooking staff is heavy handed on the butter. Don't get the sauteed spinach unless you like it sour/wine-tasting. The trout was overcooked and had a lot of butter sitting on top of it. The fish and crabmeat special was swimming in butter. Glad you can get a side salad as one of the sides because the sides are pretty non-traditional. Waiter was friendly and prompt. Manager even dropped by the table - which was nice. The space is small-- tables are close together."

"Halima waited on me during my visit. Between her and the rest of the staff I didn't want for anything. Everyone was very attentive, but not overly so. I dined as a one-top during business travel and sometimes that can make servers uncomfortable, it wasn't an issue here. Best service I have had in a long time. Thanks"

"Shrimp were so salty, they were just barely edible. Tables were too close together; no sense you could have even a semi-private conversation and nobody could get up without discombobulating someone on either side. And the noise was UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! But our server was amazing... refills of drinks just kept arriving at the perfect moment."

"Horrible and extremely slow service during lunch and restaurant was barely full - likely the reason. Too many other good places in Crystal City than to waste your time and money here."

"Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait 35 minutes to be seated. Waitress service was just OK, mostly scarce."
