Our waitress didn’t make me feel so sure about their knowledge of celiac, but a different one delivered my food to make sure mine was the celiac one. They didn’t have gluten free buns, but they do have gluten free rolls. The fries were really good. Overall I think it was good.

10/19 update: this place was as great as I remember it from about 4 years ago. Wonderful experience. Delicious fried fish, onion rings, and French fries and coleslaw. Highly recommend! 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. Delicious!!

Reviews can be wrong but NOT for this place. This place is Wonderful, Amazing, Tasty, and worth the cost of the meal. My wife and I went here tonight for dinner after I read just about every review on the app. I have celiac and she does not. I’m also a Type 1 Diabetic. We got an Appetizer of Buffalo Popcorn Shrimp. 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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

Outstanding food and service. My waitress asked if I had any allergies right after we were seated and wrote down celiac-gluten allergy. She alerted the chef and other waitstaff. I was offered GF rolls which were delicious and all of my food was delivered by the manager as a precaution. I had an outstanding experience and will be back (hopefully soon)! Note: The restaurant has a large amount of GF items that sound delicious. I had the baked haddock and it was outstanding. Portion sizes are off the charts and well worth the price.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Everything they fry is gluten free because their fryer is all gluten free. Great fried calamari. They have gf rolls if you ask for them. Knowledgeable staff. A very safe place and experience for those with celiac. I have never gotten sick.

Very knowledgeable staff, great options, and the fryer is dedicated to chickpea flour for all orders. Drink options are very good as well. Manager always delivers the gluten free meal to the table to ensure confidence.

This is probably one of the best places to eat gluten free, along with 110 Grill. I’ve eating here many times, every time something different, and have never gotten sick. The staff is really knowledgeable and they even bring you gf bread, which is pretty good. The only thing I didn’t like was the clam chowder—only the lite one is gluten free and it’s not good. Hopefully, they’ll make the regular one gf in the future.

The waiter took my order and then the general manager came out to reassure me that my meal would be prepared safely. I had the fried shrimp and french fries. Delicious and I didn’t get sick!
