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

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.

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.
