Literally the best seafood I’ve ever eaten. They even recooked my meal because it was cooked in the same area where gluten items may have been cooked.
Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Amazing food. Rolls were amazing. Although it’s not on the menu anymore, they will make onion rings if you ask. Best onion rings I’ve ever had gf or otherwise. Definitely recommend trying.
Wow! More than half the menu is GF-friendly including a bunch of fried foods because...they had a dedicated GF fryer!
I got violently ill after about 15 min .
Gf rolls, gf headed fish and chips, dedicated fryer.
Large gluten free menu. Dedicated fryer. Clam chowder is broth. Not creamy.
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!
Fantastic! They had great gf rolls to start, we're very knowledgeable about celiac & preparation. First time since diagnosis that I had fried...anything. it was wonderful. They made it with corn breading, separate in canola oil.
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.
Very knowledgeable staff and many allergy friendly options !
My 4 year old daughter has celiac and is very sensitive to cross contamination. We had a lovely lunch with our family with Mia issues whatsoever. Staff was helpful and the good was great. Extensive GF options.
Great food and amazing gluten free menu but no bread besides the rolls. Great rolls and food
Thank god for legals! No one has tried harder to push the gluten free/celiac cause than these guys. While some say it taste like chain food I think they have managed to stay ahead of other chains and their stale menus or bland food. Legals uses GF ingredients and fryers for all of their fried food and is very careful with cross contamination. Where else can you get fried fish, bread and clam chowder that is GF!? I would love it if they had lobster rolls with GF bread or hot dog bun, others have mastered this and it wouldn't take much (yes they will make with their GF rolls but its just not the same). Please don't criticize Legals even if you don't love the food because they have done so much to advance GF/Celiac causes and it's not just for the diet fad, they have real allergic sufferers in mind.
Gluten free rolls were great, and the fried shrimp appetizer was good, but they ran out of half the stuff on the menu on a holiday weekend and the seafood casserole was pretty much tasteless. Probably won't come again.
so happy to eat a gf fish and ship, Amazing, great restaurant
So excited to have been able to eat here on my first trip to Boston. Fantastic experience and even better food. I will be returning as often as I can!
Since 2005, Legal Seafoods has been celiac friendly as they don't use flour at all. Both of our young kids have Celiac and eating at Legals was such a treat. All their seafood, french fries, chicken fingers, etc are safely gluten free! They also serve GF rolls which were delicious. No need to worry about cross contamination here. The food was all delicious, as always! Now we just need a Legals in CT!
My favorite chain on the East Coast. Fabulous fresh seafood, dedicated fryer, the only place I know of for gfree deep fried calamari, shrimp, fish, etc. Salads are wonderful variegated fresh greens, not wilted iceberg business. Fish at this location was the best ever!
Fantastic!!! Enjoyed the GF fish and chips which were phenomenal, the best fish I have had since I went Gluten free six years ago. My non-gfree family members loved them meals too. I could tell th server must get asked often if the breading is really gluten free haha "yes it really is, pretty much everything is". I have to agree, I think the majority of all items offered were gluten free. The server even asked the others still wanted bread before just bringing. The manager brought out my meal separately. I would give them 10 stars!! Highly recommend!!!
Always great. Dedicated fryer and yummy gluten free bread. Celiac little one does well here.
This is so good!! Highly recommend for all families! Not only did they have gf rolls, dedicated fryer, and appetizers... Everything was so fresh. I got Fried shrimp and onion rings, very big portions and very worth every penny.
My son and I both have celiac disease. The servers knowledge and service was great. We enjoyed warm rolls, chowder and fried shrimp appetizer. What a treat to indulge in items that are usually off limits when dinning out! Thank you Legal Sea Foods!!
I love how much they really care about this. It's great. The food is tasty. You should go.
This is a dream for a celiac. 100% dedicated gluten free fryers, manager oversees preparation and delivers gluten free food in different colored plates. Huge selection of gluten free items and the kitchen is committed to keeping everything separate and safe. Best place in Boston for a Celiac go dine. And delicious to boot!!
This is the first time in 15 years I have had fried fish while eating out & boy was it fantastic. The chef brings out your gluten free plate personally. It was so good I felt like I had gone back in time:) Highly recommend.
Very gluten aware. Food was fantastic!
Decided to go here because of the great reviews. I had the scallops shrimp and lobster in wine sauce with French fries and they had awesome dinner rolls. I asked several times if there was a dedicated fryer and was told yes. Well I really was sick shortly after I ate. Something was not right even though they assured me everything was gf-- my gut says there was gluten in something-- I would not ever return-- not worth the suffering
More gluten free options than I could count. Fantastic.
GLUTEN FREE NOT CONTAMINATED FRIED FOODS! Very cautious kitchen, taken very very seriously. Chefs alerted, and food is brought out by managers who assure it is 100% gluten free.
I would give this like 10 million stars if possible. Their fish and chips is basically my entire life, I live in Chicago and we went to Boston on vacation and I bring up their fish and chips to my mom like every day to ask if we can go back. They also had the best and one of the only gf onion rings I've ever had. They were literally so good I can't even. If you are in Boston stop by your life will be changed...!!!!!!!!!!
I am from Chicago and am so used to my only option being salad. Legal Sea Foods was an amazing experience! I was able to order fried foods that were completely gluten free, that was amazing in and of itself, but the fact that the food was super flavorful and probably the best seafood I have ever had was the pinnacle! They even served my mother gluten free to assure there was no contamination and she couldn't even tell the difference until they told her. She and I were so amazed we will be going back on our next trip, we just hope we get the same waiter because he was amazing! I strongly suggest this place to anyone wanting a great gluten free experience like never before.
They really go out of their way here to protect those of us who need to eat gluten free. I felt extremely safe eating here and got to enjoy delicious fried seafood and French fries! The rolls they bring out are also very good. Service was excellent!
The service was fantastic. They were so helpful telling about their gluten free food. The rolls are fabulous. I had their fish trio plate with lite clam chowder - delicious!
very serious about food allergies and cross contamination. Did not get sick at all! A must try!
It was really nice to be able to have gluten free fish and chips in a restaurant. And it was good! Their gluten free menu has quite a number of items that I didn't expect.
I've never been so excited about rolls! And fish & chips, what a treat!
Excellent options and very accommodating staff. Excellent gluten free service.
Gluten free menu ask for assistance if you have significant allergic concerns wait staff confirmed they were placing a gluten free order
Our waiter had celiac and was incredibly charming and helpful. They even had popcorn shrimp!
Server was a fellow celiac so he totally got it & took care of me. Enjoyed lobster dinner & gfree rolls & dessert. Yum! Going back tonight.
Very good fish and chips which is a tremendous treat.
Loved it!! So nice to have GF bread brought to me with everyone else at my table. The fried fish was a treat as I hadn't had that in 10 years. Lots options and staff very knowledgable of everything.
Very knowledgeable about gluten. The server brought me gf rolls and they were good! Fish is great.
Always come here when we are in town. Love that I can get fried calamari and rolls!! They really care about your food. Never disappointed.
Took my celiac daughter here and she had a great dinner. We were so surprised when they brought just-baked gluten free rolls to the table - - she was in heaven! She had grilled scallops with the garlic/leek brown rice and spinach and did not get sick.
Amazing food and service. I always feel like they really get it to ensure no cross contamination. And the food is delicious. While I usually eat dinner (gf fish and chips anyone?) here it is also an awesome location for breakfast early morning in the airport. So much better than cold eggs and bars and the other limited airport gf offerings.
Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Huge menu if you have a gluten allergy. Even able to handle my gluten , egg, and butter allergy. Definitely felt like I was in good hands. They went completely above and beyond. Best meal I’ve had in awhile. Waitress Ellery M and General Manager five stars. Thank you!
At first there was a bit of confusion with the waiter but afterwards, the manager came to see us and assured the fish&chips would be 100% safe. So I had that and they topped it with their onion strings and even served us a cup of their chowder! Totally recommend!
Love this legal! It’s in terminal C of the philly airport and I enjoyed a quick meal of fish and chips there before my flight. The manager brings out all gluten free foods and they handle celiac so well.
This was the third legal I ate at in one East Coast vacation haha! Be warned, the portions are HUGE here. Fish and chips consisted of three huge slices of fish on a mound of onion rings that rivaled Mount Everest! (Just kidding- but it was way too much food. My mom and I wished I had split a dish). It was a stop off the highway in Warwick and we enjoyed their gf bread. Totally felt safe.
Make this a priority when visiting DC! This place is so effing good! A woman certified in gf food cam out and delivered our food and assured us the entire kitchen staff was very aware and making accommodations based on my allergy. I had fish and chips. This is not a a joke, I had the most delicious fish and chips ever. I still can’t believe it was gf and that amazing. If you don’t go here you are an idiot. For real.
Not symptomatic so I can't speak to safety other than how reassured I felt. The person I spoke to on the phone was not very helpful, seemed to be guessing what was gluten free. Once I spoke to the manager I felt much better. I was relieved to hear there was a separate fryer. I did a take out order and when I walked in, I asked for the manager, Richard, who I had spoken to on the phone. He was very nice and very reassuring that he would keep my little boy safe. The fries were good.
I’ve been coming here during market for years....this year...it has really changed....very inflexible....also changed my normal dish....then told me they didn’t....now you know us gluten free folks are TOTALLY AWARE OF OUR FOOD. the bread that used to be amazing was less than acceptable tonight....I doubt I’ll make it back...very sad...
Amazing! I cannot have dairy as well and they made my meal gluten AND dairy free. They have a dedicated fryer. Had fried calamari and fish and chips with fries! Wonderful to find a place to eat fried food and have a ton of choices!! Crazy that this is available at an airport!
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.
Great options for GF! They have dedicated fryers and workspace. The manager,David, served my food personally to assure me all was safe for me. GF breads and rolls, GF fish, bacon etc Can’t say enough good about it and it’s in an airport!!!
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.
This place is amazing!! Brown rice batter for fried calamari, gluten free buns for sandwiches. Most of the menu can be made gluten free. The staff is very knowledgeable. They have a completely separate kitchen for gluten free orders, plus the chef will come out and talk to you about the meal to make you feel even more safe. I will be back.
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.
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.
