    They are knowledgeable and friendly about allergy issues, and I can't believe how good their fried food is! This is the first place I've found that had GF fried (and battered) stuff, and you'd never know it -it's amazing. Separate frier also.

    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.

    Three words: fish and chips. Amazing! Gluten free bread and my meal came out incredibly quickly, and the staff has been great in their accommodation. Enjoyed a Redbridge (or two) alongside my meal... they also carry Woodchuck cider but had just run out when I ordered. I love a place that has cider.

    To sum my experience all up in one word : *Amazing*. How refreshing to be able to have such a nice variety of choices on completely dedicated GF menus. (They even have lunch GF menus & then separate dinner GF menus) Appetizers, entrees, fried food(!) & when the dessert menu came the waiter {shout out to Brandon @ the Pru Legal!} ,without any hesitation, told me what was okay for me to have. I had an appetizer of regular calamari that my non-GF boyfriend shared and loved also, & then the seafood casserole complete with GF breadcrumbs which my boyfriend also finished when I was full! I can't wait to return & try everything else. Really. :-)

    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.

    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!

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!

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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
