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.
Never had an issue here and they have awesome dishes!
It's technically considered a chain but I've always had a good experience here. The staff is accommodating and makes you feel comfortable. It's nice to be able to get fish n chips and feel relaxed about it.
Amazing menu.. The staff was so accommodating !!
My boyfriend tried to take me here for a fancy dinner. He told them at reservation, at check in and upon being seated that we both have a serious gluten allergy. Despite them being told several times they still brought out a big basket of gluten filled bread while carrying the gluten free roll right on top of the gluten filled basket. Needless to say after seeing that I did not feel comfortable at all and left immediately! I did try and contact legal's "safety manager" about this incident as I had already had an awful experience at legal's on the mystic and she never returned my call!
Amazing Meal- Legal really is the top when it comes to working with food allergic guests- Well prepared food with lots of variety to choose from! GF menu choices are now indicated in the main menu- They even bring out warm gf dinner rolls (made locally by Something Sweet Without Wheat)- Our server was friendly, personable and very helpful-
I was in gluten free heaven! When they brought me gluten free rolls, I knew it was going to be a great meal. I also had the buffalo shrimp appetizer and I had the lobster roll. Such a treat! I wish I lived here!
This restaurant is amazing! I went with a group of friends and we got a table on the rooftop. I told the manager that I have celiac and everything I was served was handled in such a special way. Its all a raw bar on the rooftop, but the sushi was amazing. They did bring one dish for our group to share that wasn't gluten free and were very clear to warn me about it, but also brought me a small plate of my own food so I could eat with my friends. Service like that is rare. I would definitely eat there again!
The BEST gluten free meal I have ever had! They can modify most of their dishes to be GF. They use chick pea breading to make any of the fried or breaded items. They have dedicated fryers for GF meals. I had the buffalo shrimp appetizer. Absolutely delicious! For dinner I had breaded sea scallops and French fries. Also very delicious. The scallops were so tender and the breading very light. They also have the most delicious, soft, GF rolls they buy from a local bakery. My husband who is not GF liked my rolls better than the regular rolls. If you're celiac and in Boston DO NOT miss this restaurant!
Great options for GF! They have dedicated fryers and workspace. The manager,David, served my food personally to assure me all was safe for me. GF breads and rolls, GF fish, bacon etc Can’t say enough good about it and it’s in an airport!!!
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.
Staff was extremely knowledgeable about gluten free/celiac preparation. The server went above and beyond to explain things to me in a way that made me feel comfortable. The food was delicious. There was only one downside, but it was a big one. Fifteen minutes after putting the first bite of food in my mouth I was sick in the bathroom. I had a strong reaction to something there... I had the gluten free rolls before my meal, then had the gluten free fish and chips (fries). It also came with fried onion rings on top. They were aware of my “allergy” so I’m not really sure what specifically caused the reaction, but something must’ve slipped thru the cracks. All of their batters were supposed to be gluten free so I didn’t think twice about eating the fried food. The food was so good and they seemed so knowledgeable I would honestly try them again the next time I’m in Atlanta. Accidents happen, and if it was just an isolated mistake I would still like to try a lot of items on their menu. They told me the owner had celiac and they go to great lengths to make sure it’s prepared celiac friendly, but I guess there are no guarantees.
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!
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.
