About Legal Sea Foods - Braintree – Forbes Road
Braintree, MA 02184
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

Made a reservation for my Mom's 78th bday. We arrived and there were many empty tables but still waited 10 min only to be put in the corner by the wait staff stand where a waitress spent my entire meal leaning on the back of our booth talking to her colleagues. The food was mediocre and I have noticed it has declined significantly since this location opened (was much better at the mall). The waitress was great but that's it. My daughter took ill after her meal. They won't see me again. Sad decline of a great institution.

I took my wife to Legal's on our 29th wedding anniversary. It was exactly what I wanted - the food was spectacular. It was fresh and flavorful from the appetizer to the main course. The excellence of food was exactly what I wanted for the evening.

Very disappointed--our food arrived barely warm, including a baked potato which should have been piping hot. And such small portions too given the prices. Not up to par with other Legal locations. The waitstaff were courteous and friendly however.

We frequently eat at Legal C. The quality of the seafood is simply unmatched! It is always outstanding! This particular location feels like dining at a high school cafeteria. If I'm going to spend a hundred dollars per person, I don't want to sit in a loud dining room with no decor, no coziness, and right next to the kitchen. No thanks !
Boston and even Hingham is much better.

Legals is a reliable bet for great service and quality food, Every. Single. Time.
Being the holidays, we've been out to eat a lot over the past couple of weeks and you can tell that service is suffering in many places as servers are tired from the high volume. Not at LSF though-- Vanessa was fantastic, so welcoming and great with my family.

Celebrating my daughters birthday. I have a lot of allergies in my family. All were taken very seriously. But none of my family members were frowned upon because of it. We never felt like it was a hassle which was so comforting since I am also in the food business. The best experience overall in dining I have ever had.
Thank you for making it feel special even though we did not announce it was for a special occasion.

Dined on New Years Eve. Was seated immediately. Our table was in the bar area but that was ok. I selected baked bay scallops from the "daily catch" menu. They were very good. My dining companion chose the broiled halibut from the regular menu. Halibut also deemed very good. Portions are ample. We started our meal with an appetizer of Rhode Island calamari which was just ok. A little bland. Ended the meal with a dessert of maple bread pudding which was good. Our server Vanessa remembered us from a previous visit. As usual Vanessa was on top of her game and provided excellent service.

New Year's Eve dinner at Legal Seafoods. Service (Robin) was excellent and food was equally excellent. Very crowded, noisy and tables are extremely close together but food makes up for it. Started with 2 mugs of delicious clam chowder and then I had baked stuffed lobster and husband had baked stuffed shrimp with crab stuffing. Boston Cream Pie was awesome. Not your typical Boston Cream Pie. Thankfully we had reservations. Very good dinner.

I was very disappointed on the manager reaction after I complained to him that my frisée salad I order for lunch, was indeed not washed properly , in fact I pointed to him the sand and dirty clearly visible on the frisée .
He simply stated that it was not sand as salad was washed properly and that in the kitchen they "grind" nuts into a powder added to the dressing.
I never heard of such thing and considering that people have nuts allergies, his answer to me made no sense and was nothing but an insult.
After I kept mentioning to him that I felt the crunchiness of the sand in my mouth the manager simply walked away from my table.
I understand things might happen in the kitchen when a misshapen occurs, but this was obviously visible in several pieces of lettuce when pointed out.
He took half of the salad cost off my check because I already eaten some of it.
My whole lunch was just ruined by an arrogant manager who just seemed pleasured and enjoyed insulting his patrons.
That said I never had problems with food served at any legal seafood locations.

This was a special anniversary dinner. But, Legal is our go-to for special dinners. It has become my favorite local restaurant. They understand how to cook and deliver fish as no other restaurant does. I'm sure we'll be back

We are frequent guests at Legal Seafoods around the Boston area. We went to Braintree for Christmas dinner after going to the movies. The chioppino was excellent. The baked cod and the trout were both very dry. The chicken on the ceasar salad was served on a side plate. Never saw it served like this before. The oysters were good. So basically 3 meals out of 5 were disappointing ESPECIALLY because Legals is quite pricey. We were disappointed to find the fried pickles are no longer on the menu. I also miss the cold seafood antipasto.

Cannot say enough good things about our Christmas dinner at Legal! First, of all Nathan was our server. He was fantastic! Great recommendations. The food was probably the best experience we ever had at any Legal Seafood. All five of us loved our food! Bay scallops, chioppino, tuna, lobster/filet. Bread pudding was to die for. Everyone that was working appeared happy to be there. Thank you all for a wonderful experience!

Ordered from the menu. Food was good; not great. Wish they would stop pouring hot water directly into the the cup when you order tea. The hot water should be poured on top of the tea bag from the small tea kettle. Plus, the coffee was muddy and black.
We have eaten here many times and will be back again. Today just seemed a bit off the usual greatness.

The last two times we used Open Table at Legal Seafood we were placed at a table that was added for that night. The location of the table was not suitable for our tastes. In this case it was Christmas Eve and we were placed at a card table with rounded chairs (you could not hang your pocketbook on the chair). The table was placed in a high traffic area and right near the door to the kitchen. We had a nice meal but spending $200 for a card table was not what we were expecting. On another occasion (Valentines Day) we were placed in the back room where they added table in the middle of the room side by side so there was no privacy for conversation...not very romantic...I feel that one may get a better reservation by calling the restaurant.

The food was delicious, but despite a reservation, we were initially seated in the bar area at a high top sort of table. Having made a reservation, I did not expect to be seated in the bar! That was why we made a 5 pm reservation. The hostess accomodated our request for a table in the dining area, not the bar. But the evening started off with disappointment. Also, when seated in the dining area, open tables and booths were visible. It was disappointing.
