Our server, Michael, was well-informed about what was safe and what wasn’t. The menu is clearly marked. They even brought GF bread. The food wasn’t mind-blowing, but I was excited to be able to eat fish and chips and calamari, which hardly ever happens.
They baked me fresh bread. No service like that where I'm from!
Amazing gf meal. Service was awesome.
Absolutely amazing with incredible service. Very celiac safe, and probably the best gluten free experience at a restaurant that I've ever had. The food is delicious, especially the free gluten free rolls. Staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. The manager brought my food out himself and explained all the ingredients and cooking methods to confirm the safety! This is definitely my new favorite spot.
My new favorite restaurant. I have Celiac and Wish I lived closer. Came here on vacation and it was great to know I would not get sick from eating their food. Waitress was very knowledgeable and the food is fabulous. I would recommend this to everyone. Gluten free beer available, gluten free rolls, and gluten free deserts as well.
GF Menu items are clearly marked. The waitress was very knowledgeable and accommodating. She even made sure to double check with the chef that my order was indeed gluten free.
Love love love legal seafood. My first time at this location but have been to the one in the airport and in tysons. All excellent. When I started to order they had brought out regular rolls and when I mentioned gf the waitress went straight away to order me some yummy warm gf rolls. Gf fish and shrimp and fries and Greek salad shared among us. It was all super yummy. Always recommend legal seafood. Wonderful!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will come here again.
LSF was recommended on a travel Website and was a quick 2 min walk from the Hilton. The server, Meredith, was bright and bubbly, and very passionate about the food and restaurant, especially the Gluten-Free options. On her recommendation I ordered the GF Fish and Chips and their GF beer. Being from NZ, I am always a starter for good F&C. Their attention to the many GF options and to food handling is outstanding. F&C looked great. But lacked flavour (needed salt and 'something' in the batter). Onion straws were dry. Chips the stringy McDonald type and a bit cool. GF beer was great. I will go back, but probably opt for the Snapper, which looked great at next table.
Absolutely fantastic! Everything from the GF buns to the GF fried fish to the GF crispy risotto cake and GF braised greens with bacon was superb. Manager personally checked the food and delivered it to me. Can't wait to eat here again!!
Nice selection of GF. Manager reviews all orders. The GF buns are amazing!
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!
One of the best GF restaurant experiences I have ever had. GF rolls were brought out for me and the manager brought out each portion of my meal. They also have separate oil and GF breading if you want anything fried!
The staff was extremely knowledgable. The menu indicated what could be made gluten free which was the majority of the menu. We had the crab cakes, risotto cakes, and French fries.
Best gf safe meal in long time. Fried seafood platter was great. Manager explained the oil and breading and brought everything out himself.
Great gluten free spot. GF menu; GF bread; GF-trained staff.
Wow!!! I cleaned my plate for the first time in years while out to eat!!!! GF fried scallops, jasmine rice, garlic/onion cauliflower..... Delicious! Also had a "lite clam chowder" that is gf; it was good as well but scallops come first! :) GF beer as well as cider. Highly recommend. Was worth the extra $$
Really enjoy all the gluten free options and love the fact they bring out gf bread!
Huge GF menu. They really do an amazing job! The manager stopped by several times to make sure everything was perfect. Always a favorite spot!
Very good food. Very good service. They really understand how to be gluten free.
Staff very knowledgeable about GF - GF rolls brought out and my questions about cross contamination where answered respectfully. Kitchen staff brought out my food separately and explained how it was prepared and cooked separately. I’ve never felt more confident in food I didn’t cook myself! I’m very sensitive to gluten and had absolutely no problems.
Legal is my number one, always safe option. Tell the waitstaff that you have celiac disease as soon as they seat you because they'll heat up delicious gluten free rolls that are made by a nearby bakery, Something Sweet Without Wheat. Legal has strict protocols in place for dealing with customers with celiac. My food is always served to me by the manager, who always assures me that no gluten has come anywhere near my food. And in the dozens of times I've eaten there, it never has.
just went here last night and they were just great. asked about dietary restrictions when we called for a res. they have tons of GF options on the menu. when I said I was dairy free also, the manager came to me and said the Caesar dressing couldn't be modified and ordered me others that would work. she then said she would personal monitor my good prep and bring it to me herself. I had amazing lobster w2 sides and a salad. I get sick at restaurants frequently, and this please just did a wonderful job.
Total surprise to me that their fry batter used for all dishes is actually gluten free meaning you can order popcorn shrimp and fish and chips and it'll taste just like everyone else's. Most of the menu is gluten free (no gluten crab cakes though) and if it's not gluten free there's a chance they can modify it to be- I had them make their nutty salmon dish gluten free for me and it was awesome!
I have a 10 year old with celiac. She had fries and fish sticks which we were told would be safe. Waitress even asked detailed questions. And by the time we got home my daughter was sick and up all night with stomach pains. Not sure where it went wrong. Very disappointed.
All GF fryers, finally got to have the fried seafood I've been missing! GF rolls are also good.
Today I sat at the bar at Legal Sea Foods and was seriously impressed by all the attention paid to allergies. “Allergy to: dairy, mussels, gluten, nuts...” each were announced to the kitchen staff clearly, and managers delivered all of the allergy dishes personally. As a solo traveler with celiac, I’m not a big fan of eating in restaurants. Legal is the exception. It’s pricey, and I can never finish the large portions, but it is well worth it for the guarantee of a safe meal while traveling! Also: this branch had super soft rolls to start out your meal! I almost questioned whether or not they were really GF because they tasted so good!
Wife has went to many different legal seafoods and even came here once before and never got sick. the manager even came out with food and made sure it was gluten free. The last time we went here for her birthday and she has gotten very sick. The manager didnt bring out the food this time and accidently overcharged us twice. Never again.
Even fried foods are gluten free!!!! Freaking awesome. 90% of the menu we can eat!!! Awesome.
The GF fried calamari was great. They also had the option of GF popcorn shrimp, fish and chips and other items that typically aren’t GF. They served hot GF bread. And everything was clearly marked on the menu. Our server was delightful and the staff was really fun and friendly.
Excellent restaurant for all - especially for celiacs. The staff is knowledgeable and they have recipes and protocols in place to ensure that all diners have a delightful experience. Our 7 year old celiac enjoyed the gf bread, chicken fingers and French fries this time. We have been consistently impressed with this restaurant after a number of visits.
Legal Seafood always goes the extra mile and is very cautious about cross contamination. The new menu now shows GF options rather than separate menus. I always enjoy starting with a bowl of GF light clam chowder. Today I had the seafood casserole with shrimp and scallops. Everything was perfect. Love this place!
This is probably one of the best in the area. It’s consistent, they are aware of gluten allergies so that’s always a plus! I come here when I am craving some good seafood. I got gluten free buffalo popcorn shrimp last time and it was delicious. Dedicated fryer too!
its called Legal Harborside. Took my 6 year old celiac son there tonight. I'm not sure what glutened him (he had a hamburger on gf bun, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and GF bread brought out before the meal and soft serve ice cream) but he is so sick right now, he was definitely glutened at this place. We will not be back. I wish there was an option to give zero stars.
Exceptional! For Celiac sufferers, I cannot imagine a better experience. GF options are marked on the menu and extensive. They have a dedicated GF frier, so you can even enjoy fish and chips or fried clams in GF batter. They also have GF rolls. Our non-GF friends had their food brought out by our server, but all the GF items were brought out by a manager to ensure no cross contamination. Legal really goes above and beyond to cater to GF diners. We would highly recommend to GF locals like ourselves or tourists looking for fresh New England seafood without the risk of gluten cross contamination.
Huge gluten free menu!!! I had fish and chips!
Amazing! Everything they fry in their fryers is made with only a gf breading or is gf. The fried calamari (regular and Rhode Island style) were so good! My daughter was so happy to finally be able to eat this at a restaurant! Everything that can be made gf is designated in the menu. They take allergies or Celiac seriously and the manager brings out your food here. Oh and the warmed gf rolls they bring out are sooo goood too!
Honestly the best airport experience I've had. Stopped in for a 6 am breakfast not expecting anything celiac safe but their gf rolls were perfect with the salmon omelette. The bartender said they also changed all of their fried foods to a gluten free batter so looking forward to flying back to Boston next time!
My daughter who has Celiac had fish and chips and onion stings for the first time ever!! The fried calamari was also amazing! They use chick pea flour to fry everything so all fried food is gluten free. She had a fried food frenzy which she never has had in her entire life and loved it!! The waiter was so kind and knowledgeable it was awesome!!!
Staff were super careful and helpful. The manager even served me my food when I told them I had celiac to avoid cross contamination. The gluten free fried seafood is delicious and I would highly recommend the buffalo popcorn shrimp or the fried calamari!
