Been here quite a few times - last visit the excellent waiter told me that the fryer was now gluten free! I get the scallops every time. Love it here.
They have great gluten free options here. The staff is very knowledgeable about avoiding gluten and celiac disease, at least our waitress was. They even have gluten free dinner rolls! Which are delicious.
Many options for Celiacs, fried options too and even offer gluten free rolls.
Great menu! Lots of the food can be made GFree or is naturally GFree. Manager brings out your food which always makes me feel better. Great food! Great experience!
Just had dinner here. My server was very good explained to me about the menu when I told her I had Celiac Disease. They have gluten free rolls, fish and chips were great . Will be back again very nice menu.
Only gave it a four cause it was very expensive for fried seafood platter! Service was great and food delicious! Did not get sick. No room for dessert but they mentioned something about a warm chocolate lava cake! Might go there some night just for that😛
Best Gluten Free Seafood I've ever had! The have a great selection of pretty much anything you would want in gluten free varieties. Dedicated fryers and knowledgable staff. And for the kicker they bring you warm, SOFT gluten free rolls to start the meal. Very glad I stopped in.
Dedicated fryer, very knowledgable staff.
I got to have fish and chips and fried whole bellies. so good and so much off the menu I could eat. GF seafood lovers dream.
Husband and I really love coming here... never been sick after and service is helpful speedy!
Good food and excellent gf bread for the table. I had the surf and turf which was good but somewhat plain. The surf was shrimps and scallops which were very high quality but didn't have a sauce... so again it was very plain. maybe the sauces had gluten in them and that's why? Otherwise good place that was very considerate of gluten free food which I appreciate greatly.
Hands down the best gluten free menu ever. The staff is so knowledgable. They have switched to all gluten free fryers except for 1 for a specialty item. I travel almost every week and if I could et at legal every week I would never get glutened! Food is delicious!
Delicious food! Designated person to deliver GF food. Even GF rolls.
Amazing. Felt like this was the first time since find out I have Celiac that I wasn't settling on my food choice and I actually got rolls just like everyone else. So yummy and great service and staff. Definitely my new favorite restautant.
We were recently in town from Michigan and really enjoyed our trip to Legal Sea Foods. We all found something to like on the menu. Our party member with celiac disease enjoyed the gluten free rolls they brought to the table, and the server definitely went out of her way to take care of her. I agree it's not cheap, but it's high quality seafood. We would definitely go back.
Good food good service, only complaint was the portion for the price. And pasta to fish ratio was 6 parts pasta 2 parts fish. The gluten free menu and food was tasty. Oysters were great and fresh. Bottom line save up your pennies and eat a little before you go..
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!!
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.
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.
This is the only place in the Metrowest area that I know that has gluten free baked stuffed lobster and it is truly delicious!! Gluten free calamari is awesome and the sides available are excellent. This may be pricey to some but it's worth every dime if you want to really enjoy a tasty gluten free meal.
A very nice experience. The newly remodeled interior & some interesting additions to the gluten free options makes it worth another visit. Now the regular menu is marked with an icon to help you make selections.
This is the Oysteria location. The staff was awesome and extremely knowledgeable about gluten allergies. Their fryers are completely gluten free and many of their non-fried menu items are as well. They would get 5 stars from me if my pizza crust was cooked all the way. That was the only problem here. Loved the staff, the atmosphere, and the food.
I have a toddler with Celiac's. When I asked our waitress if items on the children's menu could be made gluten free she looked at me as if I had 2 heads. She then huffed off to go check with the kitchen. I ended up ordering mashed potatoes with the meal and she rolled her eyes at me and asked if mashed potatoes were gluten free. I told her they should be since it's usually potatoes, milk and butter. They did bring my son out a gluten free roll and the manager brought us my son's plate and checked in with us a couple times to make sure my son liked the meal. If not for the rude waitress it would have been an enjoyable dining experience.
Saturday night (September 3, 2016) we were seated at the second floor for our daughters engagement party. I have celiac disease, (autoimmune disease to gluten) I cannot eat out often because of cross contamination issues in kitchens of restaurants. I called a few days before the event and spoke to Randy the manager. He assured me he could provide me with a safe meal. I placed our order with him over the phone. When we arrived, Randy and our waiter (can't remember his name) could not have been more accommodating. They met with me prior to taking orders, reviewed everything, brought my food and drinks out separately, reassuring me throughout the evening. And they did it discreetly as none of the other guests were aware. I can not tell you how grateful I am for having this experience and that Randy went above and beyond to make my food safe. Right down to dessert! You really never know until after an hour of eating if everything has gone safely, but yes it did. To be able to enjoy my daughter and future son inlaws engagement gathering, was the biggest gift Legal Harborside Dining could have given us. Thank you Randy for all that you did. I appreciate it more than you ever know. Sincerely Maria Newman
