The staff was friendly and knew how to accommodate celiac disease. There were plenty of items on their menu to choose from and since they use GF breading for all fried items, you can have anything that is fried. A manager delivered all gluten free plates to our table.

Calamari was delicious as always but we ordered the lobster bake and it was inedible. The lobster tasted like chlorinated pool water. We wasted 3/4 of it. Disgusting.

There are so many gluten free items on the menu! I had the fish and chips, and I felt totally fine. They have a dedicated fryer for the gluten free folks. Their onion rings are also lightly breaded in the cornstarch, and they were so delicious! Celiac safe for sure.

Celiac safe! We went here twice in Boston. Items that can be made gluten free are marked on the menu. Restaurant seems to have adequate allergy protocols because neither my partner nor I got sick! Everything fried is gluten free (they use cornstarch instead of flour). We tried the calamari, crab legs and sides, surf and turf with sides, and lobster roll. The lobster roll is really just butter poached lobster with the option of their gluten free bread rolls to make it yourself. The lobster is perfectly tasty on its own! The gluten free bread rolls are mediocre. Good service and good food, definitely recommend for Celiac's folx!

I've eaten at the Lynnfield MA and Peabody MA restaurants and both have no clue what they are doing when it comes to gluten. Yesterday I was served a bowl of mussels with regular bread in it after specifically telling the waiter I had a gluten allergy and even made sure I ordered the gluten free mussels. He just looked at me like a deer caught in headlights when I asked him if the bread was gluten free. He said no but just don't eat the bread (the bread was physically in the bowl with the mussels and broth). There is only one waitress trained in gluten allergies at the Peabody restaurant. How do I know? Because she told my husband and I casually that she was the only staff member who had received their allergy training. I don't care if a restaurant doesn't offer GF options, I just wont eat there. But don't say your giving me something that your not. It's not for a cook or waiter to make decisions about my health. On top of it, food allergies or not, I think Legal Sea Foods is very inconsistent with their food/service quality (I guess it depends on who is working). If your in this area there are tons of seafood restaurants I wouldn't waste my money on this one.

Awful experience. Plenty of open tables, yet a long wait. Clam chowder was watery and very expensive for a small cup and soggy salads (ugh!). The waiter was always standing in the corner on his cell phone, very inattentive to any of his tables. Disappointed as our other Legal Seafood experiences were better at different locations. This was a bad dining experience (food and customer service combined).

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!

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

We went for a restaurant week lunch and the special menu was not marked for gluten free options, so our waitress went to ask a more knowledgeable waiter. He came over right away, took over our table, ran back to the kitchen to get our questions answered and in a matter of moments, a plate of hot gluten free buns arrived. The waiter was all about how they do gluten free really well there and intend to earn our trust. The food was good, thoroughly gluten free (my husband is super sensitive), and the service was amazing. I know restaurant week is intended to get people to try out new restaurants, but I have never before felt like a restaurant was really trying to get OUR business.

They are the best. Other restaurants should take a clue to how Legals earns business from Celiacs: 1) they have trained wait staff and chefs 2) they don’t make you feel like like a second class citizen by giving others bread and you (the Celiac) no bread... no, they give you warm tasty GF rolls served by wait staff who only serve GF meals 3) they also have many options — so you feel you have lots of choices. Great going Legals! 5 stars for me!

What a wonderful GF DF experience. My son had clams and shrimp and I had the platter where everything is fried in their dedicated fryers (fish, scallops, calamari, fries, etc.). What a treat! Eating fried food that is GF and DF in a restaurant is almost unheard of. They were very careful and really understood cross-contamination. Liked how they brought our plates out separate too.

Not the usual Legal experience. In every other restaurant, a manager has brought my food and confirmed it was gluten-free. Not only was the service terrible here, but they didn’t seem to take Celiacs seriously. I had to ask three times to make sure the dish was safe and staff acted completely annoyed by my concern. I have never had a bad experience at Legal’s, but will never come back to this location.

Best GF pickle chips I’ve ever had! The GF buns at this location are mini and kind of hard so not the best. I was with 2 friends and all 3 of us ordered the fried fish sandwich (2 gf, 1 regular). They brought the 2 GF ones out and said these are the GF ones and then brought the regular one. All 3 buns looked exactly the same and the GF buns did not look GF to me. Our server took them away and we were brought new GF sandwiches - our server did not bring the food out and also recognized that the buns were not GF. While we waited a manager came over and assured us that she had spoken with the kitchen staff (read yelled) and apologized profusely for non GF dishes being brought out and presented as GF. She also brought us 2 complimentary GF desserts. I was very impressed by the quick response to non GF food being brought out, however, had I not noticed that the buns were not GF and I would have eaten them and gotten sick. (I did not get sick so the replacements were GF) would go back again but double check that everything that comes out is in fact GF.

This was our first time to any Legal Seafood, and we selected it while traveling in Boston specifically because of its celiac-friendly reputation. We. Were. Not. Disappointed. Everything, from our waiter’s well-versed understanding of our gluten-free concerns, which immediately put us at ease, and the number of gluten free options on the menu (literally ALL of the fried fish is gluten free, plus there were many other choices available), to the quality of the food, were AMAZING! The regular non-gluten-free New England clam chowder was the best I’ve ever had (so your non-celiac dining companions should def try it) and my husband’s brothy gluten-free light chowder was delicious, as well. Grilled shrimp with jalapeño polenta and kale salad, fried calamari with hot peppers, and fried whole belly clams were excellent. They even brought gluten free dinner rolls. The best part was how comfortable we felt knowing they truly understood my husband’s dietary needs so we were completely relaxed, which is rare for a celiac dining out. Only downside? Ice cream was the only gluten-free dessert on the menu. Not complaining, though. Can’t recommend this place highly enough!

She had the grilled Snapper and I had the Deep Fried Shrimp at the waiters’ recommendation. They let me sub the Polenta for the Coleslaw (no charge) and brought two GF rolls (amazing) at no extra charge. By far the Best meal we have had in DC. It was all wonderful and the Manager delivered every dish that had to be GF. HIGHLY recommend this place and Brian as a waiter. As a side note, I’ve seen some reviews complain about price. For two of us we paid $78 for all our food and drinks and that’s a bargain if you ask me (and we’re from the Midwest). We’ll definitely be returning.

I can’t even begin to explain what a treat this place is. I was only in Philadelphia for one night and I got take out when I landed and again before I took off. I can go here and actually feel like a normal person. They put the finishing touch on it by having the manager come out to make sure the food is gluten-free.

I’ve eaten the fried food at many other locations. I got very sick after eating here. They also brought all the food - raw bar, appetizers, entrees out at once which makes the experience significantly worse.

We have been in Boston and now in Washington and you feel really safe for celiac. My wife was really happy to have a good and real gluten free beer (brew with GF grains not removed). The food was awesome and staff is really knowledgeable. Great time with party of 9.

Wonderful meal! Manager hand delivered GF rolls, appetizers and my meal and ensured it was GF. The waitress was helpful in selecting options and ensuring I knew what I could have. So thankful!!!
