    Server extremely knowledgeable about food allergies and celiac disease. She even checked to make sure soy was okay. The gluten-free bread and gfree fried calamari were tasty. Warning: the chocolate cake is more like chocolate fudge and super rich.

    Gf? No problem! They really have it figured out. Gf rolls to start, gf clam chowder (ok- not quite as good as the regular I remember from years past), many gf entrees, including fried items that I'm told are all gf and fried in a dedicated fryer. Didn't try the fried food, but the baked scrod was moist and delicious. Felt very well cared for and did not have any problems later. Isn't that what we all want? To feel safe and enjoy a meal with friends/family. This was even better- it was really delicious, too!!

    Phenomenal service!!! Staff was amazing. We ate there twice and both times were good. The overlooked one thing a little and immediately fixed it. The GF rolls were wonderful!! And the fried shrimp. The onion fries were good too.

    The service was acceptable, despite the waitress forgetting to bring out my fries then blaming it on the other server. But, the gluten free bun for my sandwich smelled funny and had a strange taste. Initially, I thought it was the broccoli I ordered, however, after finishing it, the smell continued. I checked the bread to see if it was molded, but it looked fine. The smell made me nauseated! I'm going to stick to the seafood from now on!

    I have reviewed them in the past after a major disappointment. Yesterday's visit was phenomenal though. The GF rolls were warm and soft, almost like my husband's non GF rolls. The GF fried calamari was delicious with consistent breading and chewy squid. The fried Fisherman's Platter was delicious and the clams were tender and yummy. The waitress really seemed to understand my needs and the manager brought out my meals. We went back hesitantly after a bad experience there this past spring, but now this restaurant is back on the top of my list!

    Great service!! The chef came out and assured us they took every precaution they could! The fryer does not have gluten items Fried in it so you can have the French fries or the onion strings! I had the grilled shrimp, French fries and polenta no problems! (And some of my husbands onion strings - they made his meal gf too so that I could have some of his!)

    Lots of gluten-free options. There was a little miscommunication between my waiter and the chef, but the manager went out of his way to make it right for me. Gluten-free protocols are clearly in place. I visited in Nov. 2015. Read my full review over on the blog: http://www.eatingoutwithout.com/2015/11/legal-sea-foods-review.html

    This is a dream for a celiac. 100% dedicated gluten free fryers, manager oversees preparation and delivers gluten free food in different colored plates. Huge selection of gluten free items and the kitchen is committed to keeping everything separate and safe. Best place in Boston for a Celiac go dine. And delicious to boot!!

    I don't usually even like seafood, but I find that anything I have ordered is quite good at Legal Seafood. They have a dedicated gf fryer, and they take you seriously when you say you're celiac. I didn't get poisoned when I ate there, and I tend to react to very small amounts. You can eat here with confidence.

    Happy with my visit. I had a crabmeat sandwich (because it was $10 cheaper than a lobster sandwich). It came on a soft, warm, flaky GF bun. I'm told the fries are safe, but I think they serve some other breaded and fried things. Regular menu is clearly marked with things that are or can be made GF. Much appreciated! Many options. Sandwiches are reasonably priced . (Most are $15-25).

    I was informed by the chef that the Portuguese Seafood Stew is not gluten free and that it's a "typo" on the menu. It's not specific to this restaurant it's also listed as gluten free on their website. None of their wait staff was aware that it wasn't gluten free and at least one of their other chefs was unaware. The issue is their stock is not gluten free and neither is the chourico they use. They have no intention of changing their menu (or the ingredients they use) and they haven't even bothered informing their staff, it makes me wonder what exactly is safe to eat from their gluten free option. I would be very cautious eating here if you have CD or a gluten allergy.

    Decided to go here because of the great reviews. I had the scallops shrimp and lobster in wine sauce with French fries and they had awesome dinner rolls. I asked several times if there was a dedicated fryer and was told yes. Well I really was sick shortly after I ate. Something was not right even though they assured me everything was gf-- my gut says there was gluten in something-- I would not ever return-- not worth the suffering

    I'm not Celiac, just gluten sensitive...but I've dined in a lot of restaurants that claim to have gluten free offerings and let me say, this one is at the top of the pile! They offer a lot of GF options - more than many restaurants. I was able to have fried clams, which I have always loved but haven't been able to eat in years! The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about their GF process and selection, and even offered a GF roll (one of the best I've ever had). Even the dessert menu has GF options. The Belgian chocolate mousse parfait was wonderful. Will definitely visit here again!

    I would give this like 10 million stars if possible. Their fish and chips is basically my entire life, I live in Chicago and we went to Boston on vacation and I bring up their fish and chips to my mom like every day to ask if we can go back. They also had the best and one of the only gf onion rings I've ever had. They were literally so good I can't even. If you are in Boston stop by your life will be changed...!!!!!!!!!!

    My boyfriend tried to take me here for a fancy dinner. He told them at reservation, at check in and upon being seated that we both have a serious gluten allergy. Despite them being told several times they still brought out a big basket of gluten filled bread while carrying the gluten free roll right on top of the gluten filled basket. Needless to say after seeing that I did not feel comfortable at all and left immediately! I did try and contact legal's "safety manager" about this incident as I had already had an awful experience at legal's on the mystic and she never returned my call!

    Would not recommend to anyone with a gluten allergy or Celiac disease. I have been to the Burlington location and have always had an amazing experience. Decided to try this new location for a change. The server was not knowledgeable at all on gluten free options or handling. Brought out a regular roll and placed it right in front of me then went to another table to take an order, I went to reach for it and she ran over saying it was a regular roll! Later she told me there was only one gluten free option on the menu for dessert which I knew was incorrect as I had been to another location. About 30 minutes after this visit I got violently ill from a gluten contamination! I spoke with Legal's "safety manager" Marnie about this incident and pretty much was given a song and dance about how they are all trained and she is not sure what happened. She assured me that allergies are important to legal and sent me a $35 complimentary card despite a bill of $150 for that evening.

    I am from Chicago and am so used to my only option being salad. Legal Sea Foods was an amazing experience! I was able to order fried foods that were completely gluten free, that was amazing in and of itself, but the fact that the food was super flavorful and probably the best seafood I have ever had was the pinnacle! They even served my mother gluten free to assure there was no contamination and she couldn't even tell the difference until they told her. She and I were so amazed we will be going back on our next trip, we just hope we get the same waiter because he was amazing! I strongly suggest this place to anyone wanting a great gluten free experience like never before.
