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!
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!
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!
