Used my Nima sensor and tested fish and chips platter and dinner rolls. All came up GF.
Very knowledgeable, even announced what each of my courses was gf. Warm gf rolls!
Exceptional! For Celiac sufferers, I cannot imagine a better experience. GF options are marked on the menu and extensive. They have a dedicated GF frier, so you can even enjoy fish and chips or fried clams in GF batter. They also have GF rolls. Our non-GF friends had their food brought out by our server, but all the GF items were brought out by a manager to ensure no cross contamination. Legal really goes above and beyond to cater to GF diners. We would highly recommend to GF locals like ourselves or tourists looking for fresh New England seafood without the risk of gluten cross contamination.
spectacular. the fry batter is gluten free. the fryer is dedicated gluten free. they have gluten free tools that are tasty. love it.
Awesome options, great fresh fish selections.
Very knowledgeable about cross contamination. They have delicious gluten free rolls. I got the trout with green beans and rice and it was excellent. Would eat here again.
Very knowledgeable. Fries and other fried food like calamari made in dedicated fryer. Awesome GF bread. Kids loved fries. Good food. Manager came out to serve food and assure us that care had been taken to prepare food safely.
dedicated fryers, knowledgeable staff, gf beer, gf menu. I've eaten here tons of times and I think it's the most celiac friendly restaurant in Boston. the manager always personally brings out your food if you have celiac disease.
Fish was good. Fries were ok not fresh cut. No problem with gluten. Waitress aware. Overall good experience with good GF options.
We just stumbled on this restaurant while visiting Boston. But it is almost woth the price of a plane ticket from Texas to eat here sgain. Glten free rolls, onion rings. seafood. So good!
So many gluten free options! Great food and service.
Over priced and over cooked, but they are able to accommodate celiacs.
Best restaurant so far for celiac friendly. All fried food uses a GF coating so my daughter could eat almost anything she wanted including the fried shrimp! The GF rolls were delicious. The service was fantastic both our waiter and the manager were knowledgable and attentive.
They do a great job with cross contamination. They cook food in a separate pan instead of on a grill. I have multiple food allergies, so I stick to the grilled items and plain vegetables, but it's well prepared. I may bring my own side sauce for steamed broccoli in the future. The manager brought out my meal and you can talk to the chef or your waiter/waitress to your heart's content. They also made me my own special course when everyone else had bruschetta. I had watermelon with mint and citrus. Tasty and refreshing!
I had dinner here this evening, and my sever was exceptional. The gluten free rolls were great, Salad was wonderful, I ordered the fisherman platter as finding gluten free fried food is next to impossible. They were more than happy to substitute scallops for something else as I can't eat scallops. It was extremely yummy, the white fish was a little boney. It was a very large helping perfect for two or left overs. For dessert I tried there chocolate parfait as it's the only gluten free dessert option other sorbet. It wasn't very good chalky and tasteless which is the only reason I offer four stars instead of five.
great food! staff very helpful and fairly knowledgeable of GF concerns. dedicated GF menu. manager specifically brought out my wife's GF meal, as noted in other reviews. they did have a GF flourless chocolate cake, more like an oversized truffle, that was pretty tasty! we definitely did not go away hungry. loved it! went to am overpriced Italian joint in the north side, and would go back to LSF way before the Italian joint!
Loved getting gf fried food! The shrimp and scallops were exceptional on the fisherman's trio.
Awesome gluten free rolls
Service is so fab! gluten free menu is awesome !!!!
This place is HUGE. 2 floors that literally serve hundreds (we asked). The GF menu is extensive & waitress helpful & efficient despite the place being full of people. Wine list is maybe too long. :-) We enjoyed our meal. The GF menu doesn't list dessert but they have a GF cookie box - just ask.
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.
just went here last night and they were just great. asked about dietary restrictions when we called for a res. they have tons of GF options on the menu. when I said I was dairy free also, the manager came to me and said the Caesar dressing couldn't be modified and ordered me others that would work. she then said she would personal monitor my good prep and bring it to me herself. I had amazing lobster w2 sides and a salad. I get sick at restaurants frequently, and this please just did a wonderful job.
Total surprise to me that their fry batter used for all dishes is actually gluten free meaning you can order popcorn shrimp and fish and chips and it'll taste just like everyone else's. Most of the menu is gluten free (no gluten crab cakes though) and if it's not gluten free there's a chance they can modify it to be- I had them make their nutty salmon dish gluten free for me and it was awesome!
I have a 10 year old with celiac. She had fries and fish sticks which we were told would be safe. Waitress even asked detailed questions. And by the time we got home my daughter was sick and up all night with stomach pains. Not sure where it went wrong. Very disappointed.
All GF fryers, finally got to have the fried seafood I've been missing! GF rolls are also good.
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!
Wife has went to many different legal seafoods and even came here once before and never got sick. the manager even came out with food and made sure it was gluten free. The last time we went here for her birthday and she has gotten very sick. The manager didnt bring out the food this time and accidently overcharged us twice. Never again.
Even fried foods are gluten free!!!! Freaking awesome. 90% of the menu we can eat!!! Awesome.
The GF fried calamari was great. They also had the option of GF popcorn shrimp, fish and chips and other items that typically aren’t GF. They served hot GF bread. And everything was clearly marked on the menu. Our server was delightful and the staff was really fun and friendly.
Excellent restaurant for all - especially for celiacs. The staff is knowledgeable and they have recipes and protocols in place to ensure that all diners have a delightful experience. Our 7 year old celiac enjoyed the gf bread, chicken fingers and French fries this time. We have been consistently impressed with this restaurant after a number of visits.
Legal Seafood always goes the extra mile and is very cautious about cross contamination. The new menu now shows GF options rather than separate menus. I always enjoy starting with a bowl of GF light clam chowder. Today I had the seafood casserole with shrimp and scallops. Everything was perfect. Love this place!
This is probably one of the best in the area. It’s consistent, they are aware of gluten allergies so that’s always a plus! I come here when I am craving some good seafood. I got gluten free buffalo popcorn shrimp last time and it was delicious. Dedicated fryer too!
its called Legal Harborside. Took my 6 year old celiac son there tonight. I'm not sure what glutened him (he had a hamburger on gf bun, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and GF bread brought out before the meal and soft serve ice cream) but he is so sick right now, he was definitely glutened at this place. We will not be back. I wish there was an option to give zero stars.
Huge gluten free menu!!! I had fish and chips!
Amazing! Everything they fry in their fryers is made with only a gf breading or is gf. The fried calamari (regular and Rhode Island style) were so good! My daughter was so happy to finally be able to eat this at a restaurant! Everything that can be made gf is designated in the menu. They take allergies or Celiac seriously and the manager brings out your food here. Oh and the warmed gf rolls they bring out are sooo goood too!
Honestly the best airport experience I've had. Stopped in for a 6 am breakfast not expecting anything celiac safe but their gf rolls were perfect with the salmon omelette. The bartender said they also changed all of their fried foods to a gluten free batter so looking forward to flying back to Boston next time!
My daughter who has Celiac had fish and chips and onion stings for the first time ever!! The fried calamari was also amazing! They use chick pea flour to fry everything so all fried food is gluten free. She had a fried food frenzy which she never has had in her entire life and loved it!! The waiter was so kind and knowledgeable it was awesome!!!
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!
