    They bring GF bread before your meal upon request. I had a lobster roll on GF bread. It was really delicious. I loved Legal Seafood before getting diagnosed with celiac. Now I love it even more. The waiter was helpful and knowledgeable. Love this place.

    My kids and I had the best meal here! They brought out complimentary GF rolls (delicious!) and had many good options for dinner. My son was able to get a kid's burger on a GF bun with French fries, and their chocolate pudding cake was to die for.

    I have always had a great dining experience at Legal Seafood. Their GF rolls are fantastic! The servers are knowledge about the GF choices on the menu and the manager brings the GF meal separately. They now have the GF items identified on the regular menu, so no need to ask for a separate menu anymore.

    one of the best chain gf places. a manager reviews every gf order. the gf options are actually broader than the gf menu suggests: the can make gf fries (pan fried), they can gf bread and fry any fish as well as make gf fried fish bites for kids. they have fresh baked gf dinner rolls and even gf croutons for salads. only caveat is the fried fish all contain dairy due to the breading process.

    Loved it!!!!! The staff were so helpful and is the server didn't know an answer to a GF question they would consult with the chef. They had delicious GF rolls so I wasn't just sitting there watching everyone eat their delicious bread. A lot of options and the food was excellent!!!

    This is the Oysteria location. The staff was awesome and extremely knowledgeable about gluten allergies. Their fryers are completely gluten free and many of their non-fried menu items are as well. They would get 5 stars from me if my pizza crust was cooked all the way. That was the only problem here. Loved the staff, the atmosphere, and the food.

    I have a toddler with Celiac's. When I asked our waitress if items on the children's menu could be made gluten free she looked at me as if I had 2 heads. She then huffed off to go check with the kitchen. I ended up ordering mashed potatoes with the meal and she rolled her eyes at me and asked if mashed potatoes were gluten free. I told her they should be since it's usually potatoes, milk and butter. They did bring my son out a gluten free roll and the manager brought us my son's plate and checked in with us a couple times to make sure my son liked the meal. If not for the rude waitress it would have been an enjoyable dining experience.

    Saturday night (September 3, 2016) we were seated at the second floor for our daughters engagement party. I have celiac disease, (autoimmune disease to gluten) I cannot eat out often because of cross contamination issues in kitchens of restaurants. I called a few days before the event and spoke to Randy the manager. He assured me he could provide me with a safe meal. I placed our order with him over the phone. When we arrived, Randy and our waiter (can't remember his name) could not have been more accommodating. They met with me prior to taking orders, reviewed everything, brought my food and drinks out separately, reassuring me throughout the evening. And they did it discreetly as none of the other guests were aware. I can not tell you how grateful I am for having this experience and that Randy went above and beyond to make my food safe. Right down to dessert! You really never know until after an hour of eating if everything has gone safely, but yes it did. To be able to enjoy my daughter and future son inlaws engagement gathering, was the biggest gift Legal Harborside Dining could have given us. Thank you Randy for all that you did. I appreciate it more than you ever know. Sincerely Maria Newman

    I have gotten sick here twice. The first time, I'm not sure what happened. The second time, they used the spicy breading instead of the gluten free one. Both times were during slow times of day. The afternoon wait staff seem disinterested. I have never had a problem with the one in short hills even though they are much busier.

    A rich GF menu amd the waitress seemed very familiar with gluten issues. She was supportive when when we asked for a glove change. She took it upon herself to offer our kids GF rolls which my son enjoyed a great deal. They were willing to make items on the kids menu from scratch for the kids also. The manager delivered the GF dishes. Great experience.

    Brought my kids (both have celiac) to Legal Seafoods for lunch today. They were able to make the fish sticks and the chicken tenders from the kids menu completely gluten-free and safe from cross-contamination for my kids to enjoy. French fries were also gluten-free and in a dedicated fryer so they were safe. After a few bites, both my kids jumped up in the booth and shouted we "love it here"! So excited to finally find a local place our entire family can enjoy.

    Since 2005, Legal Seafoods has been celiac friendly as they don't use flour at all. Both of our young kids have Celiac and eating at Legals was such a treat. All their seafood, french fries, chicken fingers, etc are safely gluten free! They also serve GF rolls which were delicious. No need to worry about cross contamination here. The food was all delicious, as always! Now we just need a Legals in CT!

    As others note, thus location is NOT celiac friendly, although the current menu notes some fried foods as GF our waiter pointed out the coating is GF BUT only one fryer! You can get GF rolls and the grilled seafood, but disappointing when you had heart set on fried calamari. Our waiter was great and very accommodating so I give 3 stars for that but if in Seaport go to regular Legals across the street

    We were at the World of Coca Cola (Centennial Park and Acquarium) so lucky to find this good fish restaurant so close. We were told that the manger is very aknowledge with GF and being Celiac, so every plate will be double checked before being served. I decided to trust them and let my daughter have fish and chips. They brought her some GF rolls which she enjoyed hawith butter. For some reason she didn't like F&C, but didn't get sick, so I think it was only her personal taste.

    I have craved fried seafood since I was diagnosed with celiac disease last year. I was so excited to see that they offered gluten free battered seafood and that they take fantastic safety precautions against cross contamination. The food was delicious, they even had gluten free rolls and croutons. It may be pricey but it was totally worth it!

    Hi I'm Morgan and like most of you I have celiac. Not to long ago we went to Legal Sea Foods for a family event. The hostess said that they were 100% gluten free and that I could even get fish and chips! I was thrilled! When everyone ordered I assured our waiter that I had a severe gluten allergy and ordered the fish and chips. They were delicious! Until on the car ride home we had to stop for you know what! I was up sick all night! When I was up to the task and called the restaurant. The manager was truly very upset about it and gave us a 75 dollar gift certificate, but I don't think I will be going back anytime soon!

    Fantastic!!! Enjoyed the GF fish and chips which were phenomenal, the best fish I have had since I went Gluten free six years ago. My non-gfree family members loved them meals too. I could tell th server must get asked often if the breading is really gluten free haha "yes it really is, pretty much everything is". I have to agree, I think the majority of all items offered were gluten free. The server even asked the others still wanted bread before just bringing. The manager brought out my meal separately. I would give them 10 stars!! Highly recommend!!!

    This is the best place to go if you have celiac disease. They can pretty much make everything gluten free. This is the only place I can get fish and chips safely, and it's delicious. Although a tad expensive (seafood usually is) I feel so confident in their ability to get the allergy right and I SO appreciate their effort in making their facility safe for all of its patrons!

    Outstanding food and service. My waitress asked if I had any allergies right after we were seated and wrote down celiac-gluten allergy. She alerted the chef and other waitstaff. I was offered GF rolls which were delicious and all of my food was delivered by the manager as a precaution. I had an outstanding experience and will be back (hopefully soon)! Note: The restaurant has a large amount of GF items that sound delicious. I had the baked haddock and it was outstanding. Portion sizes are off the charts and well worth the price.

    I have missed fried fish! Legal Seafood claims gluten free breading and dedicated fryers. They have GF dinner rolls that were quite good. Our waiter was knowledgeable and explained that the manager would deliver my meal to the table. He said that is their policy when there are food allergies so the manager can verify that the food was prepared correctly. I wish this restaurant was near my home.
