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

Overpriced, overcooked food. I will not go back. $29 for a lobster roll? Fishermans platter had 3 scallops, 3 shrimp and 1/2 cup of way overcooked tiny clams. I asked the waitress how big the bellies were on the clams before ordering and she told me very large. They were smaller than a dime. My 13 year old who eats anything in his sight, left half his dessert because it was too tart. I tried it and it was terrible. Too many other great seafood restaurants around to waste time here. Unfortunately, I think Legal Seafood has seen better days.

Like usual, I am always impressed with the service, food and hospitality of the staff. I should mention how the manager goes around to help staff, mediate any conflicts and ask everyone if there meal and service are to their needs. On the subject of manager, I was touched when he asked my 8 y/o son if his Mac and cheese was to his liking-he(my son) felt special having someone ask his views on something....

Legal Seafood has great seafood and the waitstaff always make good wine suggestions. My only issue with the restaurant is the cost of a meal. If I'm paying $28 to $30 for an entree, plus the cost of an appetizer and alcohol, I usually choose a restaurant that has a better atmosphere and is not a chain.
The draw for most diners in the Braintree area is the location.

I have been a fan of Legal Sea Food for many, many years. The quality of food is superior, however, on this visit, my steamers were over cooked. They were breaking apart and gooey. They took them away and brought out a new batch cooked to perfection! They did not credit them off the bill and it took awhile to get them the second time around. The artic char was amazing and their salad was fresh and delicious. love the ambiance there, but the service was under parr that night.

My husband and I enjoy this particular Legal Sea Foods. He has some dietary restrictions and this restaurant is always able to accommodate him. The food is good with a variety of selections. ,Although the restaurant is a bit pricey, I would recommend it.

The food was delicious, but above all the staff was friendly and very attentive. I had requested to be seated outdoors and immediately I felt few rain drops the server kindly offered us a spot inside which ended up being much more cozy and very elegant. This was a special occasion for my family which were departing back to PR next day.

It was a disappointing experience. Waitress was not very attentive and had to request several obvious actions such as additional plates for sharing an entree, spoon to serve casserole. Presentation and quality of food was poor. Shrimp was tough. Least expensive wine was $11 which was over priced. This is the first and last time at the Braintree restaurant. My gift card was a waste of money.

My friend and I met for a lunch get-together because we don't have a chance to see each other often. The food was good and the service was excellent. We appreciated the friendliness and the fact that we were not at all hurried and had a chance to visit and spend time catching up on news.

The lobster was great , however, there wasnt a variety with the salmon selection...and being that this was a seafood restaurant, i expected more. I ordered an almond crusted salmon but the almond was really overwhelming, i had to remove the top layer.

The restaurant was great per usual and the service was amazing. It was a dinner for two friends who haven't chatted in over 3 years so our server was patient with us because we would forget to look at options due to some juicy tea (aka gossip). We traded gossip all through out dinner and a bottle of champagne.
It was the perfect place for our reunion.

Friend was visiting from out-of-town, and wanted to show her the best of New England seafood. This Legal Sea Foods is fabulous! The food was all delicious, and we also enjoyed a great bottle of Rose. Jen, our server, took wonderful care of us. She was friendly, kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. I would definitely request her to be my server on a future visit! The manager Matthew, also stopped by to check on us. Overall it was an amazing dining experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We were there for a birthday celebration and gathering. Food and service were good as expected although the waitress disappeared for a long period of time at the beginning after she took our drink order. Took a long time for food to come too... we sat next to the prep area so we saw all the dishes sat on the counter without anyone picking them up for 10-15 mins... which means the waitstaff are too busy.. But overall it was a fun night and I would go back.

Everything was great and I really appreciated how the hostess was welcoming and accommodating when we were late because of traffic. I called ahead to let them know and my entire experience was a great example of what customer service should be: hassle free and pleasant😊
Thank you Legal Seafood!

Very disappointing experience. We've dined at Legal Seafood many times and many different locations. The food and service were very disappointing. I'd be hesitant to go again and certainly would not recommend this location to anyone!

Usually a big fan of Legal, but the Braintree location has slipped in food quality. Fish was soggy and tasteless and my mother's fried shrimp was over-fried. Other locations appear to be maintaining quality, we'll skip Braintree.

A group of five had dinner at the Braintree Legal Sea Foods location recently, and despite it being a busy Saturday night, had a splendid time. The food was excellent, but the service was even better. We had people with two different specific food needs in our party, and someone with accessibility needs, and everything went seamlessly there.

Beautiful interior, great location, easy parking, great selection of seating and awesome bar. Our server was very personable, kind and helpful making suggestions. Food and drinks were perfect. Will absolutely be back!

We had a party of 8 and the table couldn't have been better. Square not rectangle. Was able to converse with everyone. Wait staff was great. Always there when needed but not hovering. We weren't rushed and all enjoyed their meals. The everything tuna was fabulous. It was perfect!

Server was excellent! Most of the seafood was very good. Seafood tri was just good. Steamers were gigantic. Half the table would not eat them because they were too big. Never have seen such large ones in fifty years. The people that ate them said they tasted fine.

The service was slow, although to their defense it was very busy evening. Because we were rushed to place our order my sons pasta was not what we ordered. I also ordered grilled Chicken Caesar Salad and the chicken was inedible! It was unappealing pieces of chicken that should not have been used. They replaced my Chicken Caesar Salad but this time with a rushed semi-uncooked chicken. I've been here before and I've had a pleasant experience. I think it was just a crowded and bad evening overall. I'd go back again on a slower night.

We had a great experience tonight! Our server Cassie was spectacular. She was knowledgeable and friendly. She accommodated all of our needs and went above and beyond to make our meal special! We will definitely be back!
