About Legal Sea Foods - Braintree – Forbes Road
Our new 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. And our late night menu, available Friday and Saturday, begins two hours before close.
We’re located right off of Route 93 in South Shore Place, across the street from South Shore Plaza.

Legal Sea Foods - Braintree – Forbes Road Ratings and Reviews

They staff could not be more friendly and interested in making sure we were enjoying ourselves other than our waiter. I was taking my girlfriend out after she helped my husband and I out with our child. The waiter automatically assumed she was more of a foodie and paying the bill because she is on a strict diet and had many concerns. He directed comments to her, gave her the bill and when I put the gift card and credit card on the tray telling him what to do, he still returned it to my friend to sign. Very awkward for her and uncomfortable as she really didn't want me to pay the entire meal.

Legal Seafood is a great restaurant chain so the food is consistent. Our groups biggest complaint was the noise level in the restaurant was very high. We found ourselves yelling to each other. Definitely not a great place to catch up with friends.

We were seated by a manager who, upon hearing that we had traveled a great distance for the Wellfleet Oyster Festival that had been canceled due to suspected norovirus outbreak, proceeded to bring us a fine selection of raw oysters on the house. This was a wonderful and much appreciated surprise!

Legal Sea Foods is one of mine and my wife's favorite seafood restaurants in New England. Its a bit pricey but the quality is outstanding and never a disappointment. Their calamari Rhode Island style appetizer is terrific (a few more peppers next time, plz) and you have to try their clam chowder is a must. Our server (Jonathan) was very pleasant and service was great - well worthy of a 20% tip. Yup, pricey but a once-in-a-blue-moon outing for my wife and me is worth it.

I am a big fan of Legal Seaford in Warwick RI so my expectations were for a very positive experience. My eldest son was treating us for dinner, so we decided to make reservations closer to where he lives......Braintree.
Although the location was very elegant, and the menu was the same as the Warwick location, I found the wait staff to be very snooty, and short with the patrons there. Our meals were good, but not worth the depressing atmosphere.

Ambiance rating was low because we were seated near the grill and felt like we were in the hallway from the kitchen. Otherwise the restaurant is very attractive. The food was great. None of us liked the apple desert very much. The cider sauce was way too sweet.

We love Legal Seafood but this facility is not on par with most of their restaurants
Food was mediocre , Poor value and the background music was too LOUD and certainly not conducive to conversation .
This is a MALL location and properly fits into the people that frequent it.

Hoped to go out for a nice and relaxing meal. Decor, noise, and choice of music ended that idea. The food, however, was excellent and the chef certainly accommodated our restrictions very well. Since the restaurant was so busy we really appreciated that.

Great place for a business lunch. Can get a little loud. Service is attentive but unobtrusive. Food is reliable and good quality. Can get in and out in an hour.
Request the back room if you need a quiet environment.

We were very disappointed with our lunch. My wife had a fried clam appetizer and the clams were dry and stuck together. Our server told my wife that she could have half salad if she did not want a large serving. I had a whole salad and my wife had a half salad. The difference in size was less than half with a price of around $.50 less than the larger portion of the same exact salad. I always look forward to eating at Legal but this time it was not enjoyable. This was not a good experience for us.

Have been to this Legal's location a few times. Wonderful for a special night out or when you just need that seafood fix. Started with an app of some fabulous oysters from the oyster festival menu. I chose the Arctic char with an Asian sauce served on the side which was great. My dining partner selected Scrod which was also very good. Since we were celebrating a birthday we were comped a lovely ice cream dessert. Our server Jose C was very attentive and helpful with menu selections. The ambiance is urban chic without having to drive into the city.

Legal Seafoods in Braintree used to be a great restaurant. The past few times we have gone there the experience has not been good. The food constantly comes out cold, we tell the manager who apologizes and does not charge us for the meal. We appreciate the manager comping the meal however, the evening is now ruined because you have to complain. I have a great idea cook the food right time and work on improving the timing of the courses.

We had a terrific night at Legal in Braintree. The food was very good and the service was very special. It was my husband's birthday, although we only mentioned it in passing. Brian, our waiter helped us with selecting appetizers and brought a surprise birthday dessert to the table. It made the evening more festive and most enjoyable.

We had a great meal and the cosmo martinis and margaritas were delicious! Also, a highlight of the night were my sandyneck oysters- my favorite oysters! Our server was also wonderful- attentive without being overly attentive- she and the rest of the staff were friendly and welcoming.

Food was wonderful as usual. The baked stuffed shrimp now comes in a casserole dish and did not have too much stuffing (a problem in some restaurants). Companion ordered artic char which is always a treat and cooked just right. We like the hot rolls as an appetizer since the portions are just right for us. Also liked that we could order a 1/2 bottle of wine since it is just a bit more than 2 single glasses.

This location is always on point in terms of food and service. The drinks are great, food is always consistently good, and the service is attentive and friendly. Definitely a great spot to go for a pre or post movie dinner and I love that you can be as casual or as fancy as you wish.

I love Legal Seafoods but for the first time I received cold food to the table. The other 3 diners food was hot. They took my food back and it wasn't returned for a half hour and by then everyone else was finished eating and my fries were cold! Management volunteered to remove my dinner from the bill (and I was the paying party.) that was nice however since we were there for a celebration I missed being able to enjoy eating with my friends and then had to eat while they were conversing. Would eat there again since it is a treat but I will be careful not to order one of my favorites meals.

My wife and I have enjoyed Legal Seafoods for quite a long time. In the recent past we have been using the one in Braintree because we moved here and it is relatively close to us. Also the waterfront and downtown Legals have been used by us on many occasions in the past.
We enjoy the food always and the wait staff are awesome especially in Braintree and Dedham.
We will continue to use Legal Seafood as often as we can.

My friend Nicole and I went out to Legal Sea Foods in Braintree, MA to celebrate her recent marriage. Legal Sea Foods provided us with a wonderfully perfect atmosphere to catch up over conversation and enjoy a delicious seafood dinner! Or server was patient with us as we conversed for a while before ordering! Great dining experience, thank you!

Our food and service on this visit to Legal Seafood in Braintree were very good. Our waiter was attentive, friendly, and accommodating. The food was very good. Our only complaint was with regard to our drinks - we both ordered the watermelon crush. We've had this drink many times before, both in Braintree and at Legal C in Hingham. I generally only drink vodka drinks because I don't care for the taste of most other liquors. My dining companion drinks, and enjoys, many other liquors. We both felt that the drinks had been made with something other than vodka and did not have the usual wonderful taste. Too bad because other than that, this would have been a perfect visit.
