I have to change my initial rating. While I don't think I was glutened with this meal, I did get violent food poisoning. I ate grilled trout and coleslaw (& some fries). Not sure what happened. It was bad. I'm sad to cross this one off my list of choices. Initial Response: Great meal. It was a relief to eat here. They knew what they were doing. My first French fries since being diagnosed with celiac.
Manager brought all my food personally. Everything was delicious including the gluten free rolls. I had scallops over a bacon hash wonderful. Lobster And a chocolate pudding cake for desert. Everything was delicious!!
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.
Outstanding. They understand Gluten-free and Celiac. They asked if it was a preference or allergy. Rolls were outstanding! Fish and chips! Fist time in ages since diagnosed. Meal was Fantastic!
hostesses immediately called the manager to come answer our questions. told us which sauces were not GF, brought rolls on special plate, server was excellent. huge portions of fish and chips. very happy child!
We have been coming here for years. Excellent GF menu. Great seafood. Definitely the place to go when you want fried food. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Kid friendly. Excellent kids menu.
I have eaten at this location many times, as well as other locations and I've never had an issue. I am somewhat neurotic though - checking and double checking that they know my order must be gluten free. The GF fried calamari is absolutely delicious, and I order it every time I come!
I have eaten a variety of things off the menu and never had an issue. Servers are generally knowledgable. I got sick 1 time because of a mix up with the gluten free bread rolls... Server asked I wanted them, and then when I said yes, put down the plate she was holding with rolls on them and left. I only took 1 bite before realizing that she might be coming BACK with GF rolls.. And what I was eating was not it. Could have been a lot worse!! Now I clarify EVERYTIME, at this restaurant and at others.
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!
The gluten free options are amazing. The menu is an actual menu with options and the waitstaff were very knowledgeable. The staff was also well aware of other allergies and very accommodating. There is a dedicated GF fryer. And the food is awesome. There was also GF buns! The chef burned them the first go but the second time they got them!
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!
Outstanding! The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and made sure that everyone serving me knew I had a gluten allergy. Had fried calamari, gf bread, lobster, risotto pancake, clam chowder.... came here for dinner and came back for a lunch because I was so impressed and comfortable with the service.
Our waiter had gone through specific training to accommodate to our needs. My food was phenomenal and I can't remember a time when I have eaten a gluten free clam chowder and a gluten free fried shrimp. Overall, this is a great place, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good place to eat!
Super yummy. I have found legal seafood to be universally wonderful and taking celiac and food allergies seriously. I was in a rush but was quickly provided with super yummy fried shrimp and fries all GF to go. Before my international flight this was a must!
Excellent choice for dinner!! Our waiter helped with our GF and DF questions. The only "mess-up" came when we realized that my husband could have requested egg wash prior to frying as opposed to a buttermilk wash. He had the Fisherman's Platter. He was very pleased with the taste!! I had the char-grilled snapper with broccoli and rice which covered my GF and DF needs. The GF rolls are also DF which we had with olive oil brought to the table as opposed to butter. When I asked if the rolls were made in house, they said no, but they wrote down the name of the company from which they were ordered. The rolls are made specifically for the restaurant, but I look forward to checking out the website for other GF possibilities. We will definitely return when back in DC!!!
used to be very good. still good with allergy-friendly dining, but the most recent time we went, with multiple people with different allergies at the table (that's why we chose this place bc they've always handled it well), we waited over an hour for food, and no check in from management. poor waiter got stuck in the middle, fearing that we would leave him no tip. manager emerged only bc we ask for one at the end of the meal, and a small discount was reluctantly offered. not much of a heartfelt apology either. makes it hard to think about returning to this location with that kind of service.
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.
Flying through Boston's Logan airport today for a late night flight to Canada. Needed to find some dinner during my 90 minute layover and was lucky enough to find this across from my gate. It's a bit pricey like any other airport restaurant, but worth it. So the majority of the menu is or can be GF. What a find. So since I'm in Boston I had to have clam chowder and legals fried clams. It's been years since I've had fried clams in a restaurant so had to do it. Chowder was great. The fried clams were good. So per server all their fryers in all locations are GF.
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.
