It was so good to eat out at a restaurant where they care about their seafood AND patrons with allergies! I had the first fried seafood since being diagnosed celiac. And it was excellent! The wait staff was exceptional and they sympathetically understood celiac disease! We WILL find a way to eat there again!
We enjoyed several appetizers, freshly baked gf dinner rolls, a delicious meal, and even dessert. The rolls and desserts weren't listed on their celiac menu, so I'm glad our server mentioned them.... can't remember the last time I got dinner rolls out! The food was delicious and service was great. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
They take great pains to keep GF food segregated and avoid cross contamination. I got engaged here, staff very helpful in making arrangements.
great food! staff very helpful and fairly knowledgeable of GF concerns. dedicated GF menu. manager specifically brought out my wife's GF meal, as noted in other reviews. they did have a GF flourless chocolate cake, more like an oversized truffle, that was pretty tasty! we definitely did not go away hungry. loved it! went to am overpriced Italian joint in the north side, and would go back to LSF way before the Italian joint!
My family was so excited to eat fried seafood out. They also served fresh from the oven gf dinner rolls that were a hit. I have additional food intolerances and they were accommodating of those as well. We tried many places in DC this week on vacation and this was the best place for me!
This is for the Logan airport Terminal C location. This location used to be pre-security and at that time they offered pretty much the whole gluten free menu that you would find at a regular Legal Sea Foods restaurant. The restaurant has now moved post-security and the gluten free menu is much more limited (although still better than pretty much any other airport restaurant). Basically, they lost the gluten free flour and dedicated fryer in the move. So lots of pan seared seafood and grilled veggies. Also of note, they are always busy and they have crammed as many seats as possible in the space. If you sit on the bench side of the table expect to have to squeeze between the tables (unless you are size zero). You may want to decide ahead of time if you want to shove the front or the back of your lower half in your neighbor's face.
they have a celiac menu listing all the g free options and wait staff were all very aware. I ordered the seafood platter that included calamari, whitefish, scallops and French fries. it was all deep fat fried and way over any person's recommended caloric intake for the day, but since I NEVER get the option for these things normally, I went for it. yum, yum, yum! it was so worth it. it comes with tartar sauce but I also asked for cocktail sauce to dip it in. good thing our vacation including lots of walking ;-) I disagree with the $$$ rating, it was very affordable, especially for the amount of food!
Always reliable and knowledgable staff for gf seafood dining. I always get gf calamari and only wish they'd do fried clams, scallops and shrimp as an appetizer too. I don't eat much fried food anymore but once a year I get a craving. Eat safe and well at any Legal Seafood. Feb 2014 update. They now have gf fried clams, scallops and shrimp. I don't eat much fried food but when I do I make sure it's worth while.
They used to be wonderful until they started getting sloppy this past year. They put regular croutons on my salad and then argued with me when I told them. Then they came back and admitted they were wrong but by then I had eaten half the salad. I havent been back since and Im not willing to give them a second chance. Never argue with a gf customer!
Loved the GF calamari, rolls, and seafood casserole. I look forward to my next gf meal there it was all amazing.
absolutely unbelievable selection the best option out there! bar none! Free gluten free rolls come out to the table just like regular rolls at normal restaurants, you can order practically everything on their menu INCLUDING ALL THE FRIED OPTIONS made in a dedicated gluten free fryer
Good place to have breakfast. They replace the contaminated potatoes by fruits.
I'm vegetarian and celiac so I'd never tried Legal before and was very impressed with their separate GF menu that has many choices, even for veggies like myself, and the care and attentiveness they take in preparing safe gf food. Will definitely go there again.
If you want GF seafood done right go to Legal Sea Foods. They have truly mastered the fried oysters and shrimp. I tried the oyster appetizer and asked my husband, "should we make sure these aren't 'regular fried oysters'?" because they were so good. Our waitress confirmed that other patrons had tried to return the dish, because they couldn't believe it was GF either. Run, don't walk, to Legal's.
I felt safe eating here. Very knowledgeable just not my favorite restaurant.
Excellent food, service, & selection for gluten free & celiac! I had the option to enjoy cuisine that I thought I might have to forget such as calamari. I placed reservations for a birthday celebration via Open Table noting that there was one of our party (myself) with a gluten allergy. Upon arrival, our table was set with our menus including a real menu for celiac not just a page or a binder nor were prices left out as other places do with their allergy menus. My full meal (appetizer, entree, & desert!) was delicious so I over indulged in foods normally off limits. There were even gluten free dinner rolls that were tasty & warm. They seemed as if they were baked on premise although I neglected to inquire. They were certainly far superior than most of the alternative beads I've encountered. Our server as well as the rest of their staff were knowledgeable & attentive. Each of the gluten free selections were brought out separately from the regular dishes to further ensure against allergy cross contamination. It's wonderful to be able to bookmark a nice restaurant for safe gluten free dining and not feel like an inconvenience. I will definitely be keeping this place as one of my dining options.
Gluten and dairy free food in an airport?? Outrageous! They even had a gluten free menu and beer!
AMAZING! Best gluten free restaurant I have ever been too, they were very knowledgable. The sous chef brought me my food personally and said he took the extra precautions necessary and if I needed anything to ask for him personally. I was VERY impressed with their and their food! Highly recommended for a gluten free option!!
We dined here as a family and it was great. My GF 4 year old was able to have the light chowder, french fries, a roll and a hotdog (no bun) which was perfect. Most restaurants serve very adult things on their GF menu (salmon, steak, chicken breast) which my 4 year old has no interest in, she wants the chicken nuggets and pizza her sister and the other kids get. The hot dog totally fit the bill as did the chowder. Our waiter was spot on as far as asking the chef questions about the hot dog. The GF menu is extensive and offers both kids and adults lots of options. Our non GF meals were great as well, the fried oysters were top notch.
