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

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.
