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.

Wonderful to eat outside on the terrace - clam chowder was not up to Legal's usual standards (kind of bland) - greek salad was OK but blackened salmon on top was great. Service was very attentive.

I love the food. the quality has not changed since the first Legal Seafood's opened in Cambridge MA. many years ago.

I came into Legal Sea Foods Thursday night with a friends and my experience was out of this world. Te hostess offered us our choice of patio or the dining room, even though it appeared the restaurant was packed. While I was waiting for my friend I had a drink at the bar where the bartender Ashley recommended a drink for me that was absolutely wonderful. I ended up telling my friend to get it as well. We ended up seating in the lounge, which was actually very quiet and nice for me and my friend to catch up. My servers (yes, plural! There were two servers that made sure we were accommodated!) were awesome. Jose suggested to us a special appetizer that wasn't even on the menu, which was 1/2 of each kind of calamari. It was incredible. I had never had the thai style before and I will continue to get it! Chris was also very attentive and helped us pick out dinner: I got the special salmon and my friend got the regular grilled salmon, and both were cooked perfectly to our liking. I really appreciate getting this kind of great service from a busy restaurant. It really meant a lot to me and my friend that they made sure we had a nice experience. THANK YOU LEGALS!!!

I asked my boss & he said everything was very good. They made the choice to dine outside which he sort of regretted as it got a little too hot on 6/21/16. (retirement lunch for colleague)

When you want fresh seafood served in a great variety of ways, Legals is the only place to go. Russell, the manager made it a point to visit tables and be sure that his guests were well satisfied. We will return!

Had a reservation for 7:15, table was ready and we had no wait. Manager greeted the table to tell us the server would be right over. Service was excellent, food was delicious and I highly recommend planning your next dinner at Legals Braintree. If you want to guarantee a perfect night, ask for Melanie, she gave us flawless service!

Made a reservation for 6:30 and was seated immediately in a big booth in the lounge area. Laura was our server and she was spot on! She was so friendly and had great drink and food recommendations. We just shared apps but it was all amazing. She made us feel right at home.
Almond Encrusted Salmon, yes!
Always a tasty meal and the oysters are fresh. We like the salmon because it is tasty and has spinach and ravioli, so it is a nice variety/combination.
Consistently good meals but pricy
The Calamari appetizer was excellent and the entrees (Salmon, Seafood Casserole) very good. Somewhat over priced for the style and ambiance. My entrée was $28. The wait-staff was excellent and we were not rushed.

Sat outside on the patio for dinner with a friend. Service was terrific, not at all pushy or intrusive, Becka M. never interrupted our conversations but was always there exactly when we needed her for another drink or to order our next round of food. Had the baked stuffed shrimp casserole with the risotto cake, yum!! Friend had the lobster roll, also enjoyed it. Cocktails were great, patio was the perfect temperature, manager Lauren stopped by to make sure everything was flawless, and it was! Thanks for another amazing visit, LSF!

Food was okay. Pricy. Entered the dining area after having placed a reservation over 24 hours earlier and was told outside dining was unavailable. With four in my party for a special occasion I was disappointed.
Very Good...Very Efficient
I and my friends visited on a Friday evening. I made a reservation late afternoon and was accommodated. We arrived at the time I reserved and was seated immediately. The place was very crowded with a waiting line. The menu was excellent and the service efficient , very pleasant and accommodating.
We had a wonderful experience, every aspect of our lunch was perfect. We were warmly greeted by the host, who took us to a lovely booth. Our server Vanessa was exceptional- friendly, nice, and helpful with great attention to detail. The food was spectacular- we all had lobsters and they were absolutely delicious and beautifully prepared. The Manager Mark also stopped by to make sure we were having a good time. I will be back again soon, thank you!

Dined here with my husband and two boys. It's great they have an extensive children's menu . The wine list is lengthy and the food is really good. I'm up for any place that serves meat, chicken and fish!
The food was very good as usual for my taste, very clean and friendly atmosphere. it was a little too noisy maybe because it was a full house. I can't wait to return again.

Pro: Lunch was very good-fish was outstanding. We were seated at a booth which was nice after I asked for a good table in my Open Table reservation. :) Con: Traffic and getting to/from the restaurant was so bad that I would have to be persuaded to return to this location. I don't think any attention was given to traffic flow or patterns when this hotel area was transformed to hotel/shopping/restaurant dining.
delicious and so many gluten free options!
The food was delicious and my boyfriend who has a gluten free allergy had plenty of options. Waitress and runners were very attentive and prompt.
We meet friends at the bar before dinner. Excellent bar staff and incredible drinks. OMG; your Sangria! Our waiter, Brian, who is amazing. All his recommendations where spot on and delicious. I have to say that we have dinner many times at Legals and have never been disappointed. Well done!!

Delicious as always! The server was extremely attentive to filling our waters. I love having this type of place and not have to truck to the city!
Accomodating, excellent food and service
excellent food and service. Accommodating when group size changed. Was noisy but that was expected on Easter.
A Top Spot To Dine
Legals has character and is pleasing to the eye. It almost seems that it is in a big popular/happening city in the way it is setup. You are able to look out with an almost big city view. The clientele are laid back and social. It feels comfortable and it's a great place to bring a date, people from out of town, or a special occasion. Legals is one the few restaurants that has maintained its service and food quality. I'm definitely a constant. Legals will always remain one of my top spots to dine.
3 stars out of 4
The service was excellent, ambiance was nice, bathrooms nice and also clean, but the food was only only so-so.
