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.
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.
Absolutely amazing with incredible service. Very celiac safe, and probably the best gluten free experience at a restaurant that I've ever had. The food is delicious, especially the free gluten free rolls. Staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. The manager brought my food out himself and explained all the ingredients and cooking methods to confirm the safety! This is definitely my new favorite spot.
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. My first French fries since being diagnosed with celiac.
My new favorite restaurant. I have Celiac and Wish I lived closer. Came here on vacation and it was great to know I would not get sick from eating their food. Waitress was very knowledgeable and the food is fabulous. I would recommend this to everyone. Gluten free beer available, gluten free rolls, and gluten free deserts as well.
They were great! The manager brought out my food, showed me the ticket, which was marked celiac, and assured they took all the right measures to keep me safe and I felt fine after eating a salad and mussels. The restaurant trains staff in celiac and cross contamination and started a gluten free/celiac friendly food program on in 2005. I'm amazed and pleasantly surprised
Love love love legal seafood. My first time at this location but have been to the one in the airport and in tysons. All excellent. When I started to order they had brought out regular rolls and when I mentioned gf the waitress went straight away to order me some yummy warm gf rolls. Gf fish and shrimp and fries and Greek salad shared among us. It was all super yummy. Always recommend legal seafood. Wonderful!
This place is fantastic! I mentioned to the server that I needed GF options. She was knowledgeable and friendly. And I finally got to have something GF and fried! The buffalo fried shrimp was fantastic! They brought warm GF buns to the table, so I was able to enjoy while the folks I dined with has their own buns (served separately). Absolutely great food, no reactions. The only problem was I ate waaaaay more than I should have!
I usually stay away from chain restaurants, but not in this case. I love this place. Sometimes I crave comfort foods and they have an extensive menu of things to choose from. Their fried shrimp and calamari is delicious. I've eaten here many times while traveling and is has always been safe.
Amazing menu for gluten free! Sitting here now and thrilled... so hard to eat in airports usually!
Whenever I am in DC or Boston, I must go to Legal Seafoods! I have Celiac Disease and they are very careful. Their warm gluten free rolls are delicious. Even my gluten eating friends were surprised by how good they were. One time in DC I had fried oysters. Oh my goodness! After my diagnosis, I didn't think I would ever be able to have fried oysters again. I was thrilled. I thought they were delicious.
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!!
Happy with my visit. I had a crabmeat sandwich (because it was $10 cheaper than a lobster sandwich). It came on a soft, warm, flaky GF bun. I'm told the fries are safe, but I think they serve some other breaded and fried things. Regular menu is clearly marked with things that are or can be made GF. Much appreciated! Many options. Sandwiches are reasonably priced . (Most are $15-25). Some reviewer said the whole kitchen is GF. That's not true.
Menu lists gf sandwiches without any reference to no gluten free buns or rolls. So basically it's a pile of food on a plate. The manager, Juan, was cordial in telling us we should have known. Again, they are sold as gluten free Sandwiches but the menu says nothing about no gluten free bread or rolls for the sandwich to come on. What a shitty experience, LS used to be outstanding with gf.
LSF was recommended on a travel Website and was a quick 2 min walk from the Hilton. The server, Meredith, was bright and bubbly, and very passionate about the food and restaurant, especially the Gluten-Free options. On her recommendation I ordered the GF Fish and Chips and their GF beer. Being from NZ, I am always a starter for good F&C. Their attention to the many GF options and to food handling is outstanding. F&C looked great. But lacked flavour (needed salt and 'something' in the batter). Onion straws were dry. Chips the stringy McDonald type and a bit cool. GF beer was great. I will go back, but probably opt for the Snapper, which looked great at next table.
Was really wowed by attention to detail on cross contamination. Server asked if the grill was ok or if I needed a clean skillet. Despite being quite busy, the manager was alerted and delivered my meal personally. Delicious food and great cocktail menu.
Love love love!!! Lots of great options, me and my mom swear by this place. I am allergic to dairy and gluten so eating out at a place I can enjoy safely can be fairly daunting. I let them know and they told me if they could do certain dishes. Gluten free dishes are clearly marked with a little leaf. I cannot eat the fried foods as the batter has dairy, but i can appreciate gluten free fried food even if I can't eat it! I had the snapper verde with fries and spinach and it was AMAZING. Food is pricey so be mindful, but if you can swing it then it is very worth it!
Gluten free options AMAZING! I had fried fish and chips too with fried onion strings and I almost cried! It was really good even for my non gf husband. He said the batter was perfect. 👍🏻. The salad was fresh and tasty and the GM brought over hot gluten free rolls with butter which were the best gf rolls I've ever had. Still a little drier than regular, but with butter on the top you barely notice. He explained that from their point of view many are trying to avoid gluten and desire more healthy eating, so they are doing their best to meet the need. The gf options on the menu were extensive. Each item that could be made gf had a little icon beside it making it very easy to scan the options. My husband said the clam chowder was really good too. The fish and chips were $20 which is a bit high, but when I tasted it, it was amazing. The price might limit me from visiting as often as I'd like, but I'll be back!
The fried items marked GF on the menu are cooked in a shared fryer. Our server made us aware of this prior to our order, so we were able to avoid these items. I wish they would mark this on the menu. Beyond this issue, my experiences at the Legal Test Kitchen in South Boston have been overwhelmingly positive. The servers are very knowledgeable, the restaurant offers good gluten free rolls, and GF items are delivered separately to the table by the manager. Lots of good menu options.
