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!
They do make mistakes so you have to dine a bit on your toes. I notice that when the manager is involved dinner is seamless and no mistakes are made.
Good food, staff was knowledgeable and helpful.
Fantastic! All the fried items are GF now. Go, enjoy, eat without fear. I have celiac and I ate here twice a few weeks ago. No issues at all. Just a full tummy!! The service is superb and the fresh fish and shellfish-- just amazing. If I still lived in the area, I'd eat there all the time. Thank you, Legal Sea Foods for doing it right.
Awesome gluten free options and bread. I love being able to have fried seafood again!! I also get the sushi now which is made differently than their regular sushi. It's amazing!!!
I have been here many times and never got sick. I even went here for my birthday and loved it!
Every dish was brought out by the manager. They're very through & take good care. The rolls were a little dry & I prefer Woodman's for fried seafood, but this was convenient and fit the bill.
Legal seafood is so good . There staff managers are right on top of celiac . Most fired food is cooked with corn flour Gluten free options plentifully . Beer vodka gluten free! New Restaurant legal on the mystic in somerville ma .
One of the best gluten free meals. They offered me gluten free rolls which were amazing and the fried shrimp was fabulous. Thank you Legal Seafood.
Always loves the food! So happy to not have to give it up. Especially the dinner rolls!
Great selection and quality. My favorite food before going GF was fish & chips... nice to still be able to have it here.
Outstanding and fresh. Full GF menu. Waitstaff, management and kitchen aware of GF needs.
They do a very good job here, and take food allergies and restrictions seriously. I tell them I have Celiac, and they're usually very good about my order. They even have gf rolls. You can't miss, because they look very different than the regular rolls.
Love love love!!! Lots of great options, me and my mom swear by this place. I am allergic to dairy and gluten so eating out at a place I can enjoy safely can be fairly daunting. I let them know and they told me if they could do certain dishes. Gluten free dishes are clearly marked with a little leaf. I cannot eat the fried foods as the batter has dairy, but i can appreciate gluten free fried food even if I can't eat it! I had the snapper verde with fries and spinach and it was AMAZING. Food is pricey so be mindful, but if you can swing it then it is very worth it!
Gluten free options AMAZING! I had fried fish and chips too with fried onion strings and I almost cried! It was really good even for my non gf husband. He said the batter was perfect. 👍🏻. The salad was fresh and tasty and the GM brought over hot gluten free rolls with butter which were the best gf rolls I've ever had. Still a little drier than regular, but with butter on the top you barely notice. He explained that from their point of view many are trying to avoid gluten and desire more healthy eating, so they are doing their best to meet the need. The gf options on the menu were extensive. Each item that could be made gf had a little icon beside it making it very easy to scan the options. My husband said the clam chowder was really good too. The fish and chips were $20 which is a bit high, but when I tasted it, it was amazing. The price might limit me from visiting as often as I'd like, but I'll be back!
The fried items marked GF on the menu are cooked in a shared fryer. Our server made us aware of this prior to our order, so we were able to avoid these items. I wish they would mark this on the menu. Beyond this issue, my experiences at the Legal Test Kitchen in South Boston have been overwhelmingly positive. The servers are very knowledgeable, the restaurant offers good gluten free rolls, and GF items are delivered separately to the table by the manager. Lots of good menu options.
This is the only place in the Metrowest area that I know that has gluten free baked stuffed lobster and it is truly delicious!! Gluten free calamari is awesome and the sides available are excellent. This may be pricey to some but it's worth every dime if you want to really enjoy a tasty gluten free meal.
A very nice experience. The newly remodeled interior & some interesting additions to the gluten free options makes it worth another visit. Now the regular menu is marked with an icon to help you make selections.
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.
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!
Wow!! That's all I have to say. It is by far the best seafood I have ever had. I actually over ate, I liked it that much!!!!! The service was amazing our waiters were friendly and the manager brought out our gf food. What a meal by far the best gluten free food in Washington D.C. GF dinner so far!!!🍤With gluten free fried shrimp. Yum Yum!!!!🍽🍤🍤Lots of options.
My favorite chain on the East Coast. Fabulous fresh seafood, dedicated fryer, the only place I know of for gfree deep fried calamari, shrimp, fish, etc. Salads are wonderful variegated fresh greens, not wilted iceberg business. Fish at this location was the best ever!
Awesome and knowledgable
My family loved going here while in Boston on vacation! It was busy so we had to wait a bit, but after our order was taken the meal came quickly enough and everyone was happy. My husband enjoyed is first ever GF fish and chips (a pre-celiac dx favorite), my 11-year-old was happy to find a cheeseburger on the menu, and the rest of us enjoyed all sorts of great seafood!
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!
Amazing fried seafood, I tried the calamari, shrimp and fish. Our waiter told us that they have changed all the batter to gf so all fried items are gf. They also brought the most delicious warm rolls I've ever had. Loved my gf seafood dinner experience!
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.
We've eaten here twice and I've ordered fried seafood & fries both times because I could!! It was really, really nice to feel safe (based on reviews here) and then to enjoy the dinner as well. Our second time the waitress wasn't as knowledgeable, but we saw & heard her confirming things with a manager to make sure she got my order correct.
