    I was informed by the chef that the Portuguese Seafood Stew is not gluten free and that it's a "typo" on the menu. It's not specific to this restaurant it's also listed as gluten free on their website. None of their wait staff was aware that it wasn't gluten free and at least one of their other chefs was unaware. The issue is their stock is not gluten free and neither is the chourico they use. They have no intention of changing their menu (or the ingredients they use) and they haven't even bothered informing their staff, it makes me wonder what exactly is safe to eat from their gluten free option. I would be very cautious eating here if you have CD or a gluten allergy.

    Eating here was one of the best gf dinning experiences I've ever had. It was amazing!! I haven't had fried anything since being diagnosed with celiacs. To have fried seafood was a dream! Gf dinner rolls too!!!!!!! I almost cried. So good! No stomachs problems or rashes. The staff was super nice and knowledgeable too! I will for sure be going back whenever I'm near one again! Thanks Legal Seafood!

    Fantastic choice for celiac sufferers. My husband and I shared “Dragon roll” sushi and they left all sauces on side and left crispy wontons (which contain gluten) on side in a cup for my husband (who can eat them)... then I had mahi mahi tortillas- minus tortilla—- they put them in lettuce wraps and made them gluten free... and we finished with gf chocolate dipped ice cream bon bons (gf)... they went out of their way to assist me... and it was delicious 👍👍👍 We are regulars and I highly recommend.

    5 minutes after sitting down, my celiac daughter ate a gluten roll that the waitress brought to our table. This was after explaining we had celiac and her promising us GF rolls. She only ate one bite but only because I looked at the next table and realized they had the same rolls. The waitress (and manager) said “Oops. Sorry”. We did not eat there and wouldn’t recommend any other celiac eating their either.

    Menu is clearly marked w/ what items are or can be made gluten free. They use a corn mixture for frying instead of regular flour which was a nice surprise. Unfortunately our waiter was very arrogant and condescending to our questions about cross contamination and ensuring my meal was safe. The food was tasty (gf rolls were excellent!) Chowder was delicious - tasted just like clam chowder but w/ the consistency of a noodle soup almost. Fried fish platter was also very good and crispy. Nima tested the bread to ensure it was safe and it passed. Ate and did not get sick - unfortunately the waiter’s overall attitude put a damper on the experience. Would definitely return but request another service. Overall, excellent food and it’s safe.

    Staff was extremely knowledgeable about gluten free/celiac preparation. The server went above and beyond to explain things to me in a way that made me feel comfortable. The food was delicious. There was only one downside, but it was a big one. Fifteen minutes after putting the first bite of food in my mouth I was sick in the bathroom. I had a strong reaction to something there... I had the gluten free rolls before my meal, then had the gluten free fish and chips (fries). It also came with fried onion rings on top. They were aware of my “allergy” so I’m not really sure what specifically caused the reaction, but something must’ve slipped thru the cracks. All of their batters were supposed to be gluten free so I didn’t think twice about eating the fried food. The food was so good and they seemed so knowledgeable I would honestly try them again the next time I’m in Atlanta. Accidents happen, and if it was just an isolated mistake I would still like to try a lot of items on their menu. They told me the owner had celiac and they go to great lengths to make sure it’s prepared celiac friendly, but I guess there are no guarantees.

    I've never had a bad experience at Legal Seafoods and this location was no different. Server asked right away about allergies, even before I mentioned gf. They brought out gf rolls that were delicious. I got fried haddock that was very tasty and fresh. When I verified they still had a gf fryer the server told me all their friend seafood is gluten free. A different employee brought my plate out separately and told me she was the allergy runner and that my meal was gluten free. Service and food were both great.

    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!

    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!
