The beer battered fish and chips are excellent! And celiac friendly! Also had classic or traditional fish and chips which were awesome too!

Legal Seafoods tend to be good with allergies most of the time however this location gave me sweet potatoes spiced with ghost pepper after I told them I cannot do any peppers. Did not have a gluten reaction though, just a problem with the peppers.

I thought I would have to give up fish and chips forever but at Legal they were GF and delicious!! Only deducted points because they did not have GF rolls that day

Great food & knowledgeable staff! Their fried calamari is delicious! They have dedicated friers & GF dredge for fried foods (calamari, fish & chips, fried oysters). The seafood casserole is amazing too! They even have GF rolls too! You have to ask for them but they’re so fluffy & flavorful!

Fabulous meal. What items that can be made gluten free are clearly marked on the menu. Lots of choices. They even have gluten free rolls! And buffalo popcorn shrimp! So good.

Large selection of options and... wow! Yummy! When we told the server about my daughter’s “gluten allergy” (we know it’s not an allergy, but it is a means to an end in some situations...).. WOW!.. manager came out to discuss and highlight measures taken to protect her and then when it was served to us the other server explained the extent of care to eliminate the possibility of cross contamination. AMAZING!

Lots of options including sandwiches and fried foods. Fish and chips are good - they use chickpea flour which comes across as more of a cornmeal-like texture rather than a batter. Good, but I’ve got gf fish and chips in my city that is more traditional that I prefer. However, I felt very safe - staff was knowledgeable and when food was delivered they let me know they took extra precautions.

Harborside restaurant...Extensive gluten free menu options. The waiter was very accommodating and asked in the kitchen when he was unsure about anything. Separate allergy food handler delivered the food to my son with Celiac. He was able to have a lobster roll and loved it!

Great food! I had the oyster po boy on lettuce (no bread offered) with French fries and slaw. Didn’t love the slaw but the fries were good. Manager brings out food announcing allergy. Didn’t get sick after! Also, everything that goes into the fryer is gluten free so no worries about cross contamination.

Almost all of their food could be made gluten free...including fried food and fries!!!! The staff was very knowledgeable and if they weren’t sure, they would ask instead of just guessing. Definitely returning!

Nice to have a breakfast option at an airport. The staff were very knowledgeable about celiac and took it seriously. I had eggs, bacon, and home fries- assured me the frier didn’t have any gluten exposure. The one bummer was they no longer serve any GF toast.

I don't know which location we ate at at the airport but I was assured my meal was 100% gluten free. I even asked about the fries in a designated fryer told the server I have an allergy she assured me I was going to be fine I threw up three times before having to board a plane. I do not recommend this restaurant and I think it's really sad that these restaurants assure you you're fine and really have no idea what you go through if you get sick.

Years ago when fried foods actually had a place in my diet, I had visited other Legal Sea Foods locations and had an okay experience from what I can remember. As a way to close out my wonderful trip to DC, I said “hey, you haven’t had fried fish in about 2 years, why not?” Find me gluten free showed positive notes from other travelers, so I made the decision to try. I ordered the Fish & Chips that came with a side of slaw and house made tartar sauce that they say is GF. I mentioned I had celiac/an allergy and was assured they knew how to handle GF. A manager even brought out the food and confirmed it was prepared GF. I didn’t have any NIMA capsules left, but I proceeded anyway. The food tasted great!...But within an hour of finishing the meal I was keeled over in pain for the duration of my following 2 hour flight. This was without a doubt a glutening. While I don’t doubt they’ve taken great care in preparing GF fried seafood and meals on other occasions, that wasn’t the case today. I suspect that the tartar sauce or slaw is not GF. Lesson learned.

I get to the airport early just to make sure I have time to eat here. They're very attentive and also work with my dairy allergy. I Love Legal Seafood. I'm very sensitive to cross contamination and I've never had a problem here.

Fantastic food and great service. Menu is clearly marked with options. Told the waiter about my allergy and he sent the manager over who assured me that the food would not be cross contaminated. Will definitely be stopping by again.

Our server assured me everything was gluten-free, I even asked about the french fries being in a dedicated fryer and she said not to worry it's a hundred percent gluten-free you're fine. I've been throwing up at the airport for an hour with massive stomach pains!! Stay away from this place.

I've eaten at the Lynnfield MA and Peabody MA restaurants and both have no clue what they are doing when it comes to gluten. Yesterday I was served a bowl of mussels with regular bread in it after specifically telling the waiter I had a gluten allergy and even made sure I ordered the gluten free mussels. He just looked at me like a deer caught in headlights when I asked him if the bread was gluten free. He said no but just don't eat the bread (the bread was physically in the bowl with the mussels and broth). There is only one waitress trained in gluten allergies at the Peabody restaurant. How do I know? Because she told my husband and I casually that she was the only staff member who had received their allergy training. I don't care if a restaurant doesn't offer GF options, I just wont eat there. But don't say your giving me something that your not. It's not for a cook or waiter to make decisions about my health. On top of it, food allergies or not, I think Legal Sea Foods is very inconsistent with their food/service quality (I guess it depends on who is working). If your in this area there are tons of seafood restaurants I wouldn't waste my money on this one.

Safe! I didn’t get sick! We shared fried calamari with marinara! I can’t remember the last time I had fried calamari, what a treat. I also ordered the grilled shrimp entree that had a side of jalapeño polenta cakes and a kale salad. Everything was delicious. I will go back.

Gluten free fish and chips! The breading is gluten free. Even the onion strings are gluten free. The breading is relatively low carb also. Great tasting food too!

I am so grateful for the attention to detail this establishment puts into offering safe food for its customers. It’s always delicious, always safe, and always great service. Plus, it isn’t so often that a celiac can indulge in fish and chips!

Thank you Legal Seafoods! I have been gluten free for over a year and have never been somewhere so accommodating. I also have issues with many dairy products however butter is fine. I asked if they could heat up the Lemon Kale salad and top it with hot lobster but keep it gluten and dairy free except the butter from the lobster. They were happy to do it and it was an amazing meal! Made me so happy I could cry! It is not fun having food issues and Legal Seafood made it so easy! They have many items they can make gluten free and I want to go back and try more of their other items. The decor at the Framingham location is so nice, very pleasant atmosphere and staff was great!

I ate the shrimp, brown rice, and coleslaw, and it was very delicious. They have gluten-free buns available for their sandwiches, and the breading on fried dishes is made with a chickpea flour.

Dedicated fryer, HOT fresh gluten free roll, and gluten free fish batter! I was in heaven to have fish and chips for the first time in ages! They have several gluten free options and take it seriously. I’ve eaten here twice now and both times, the manager has brought out my food and specified that it was gluten free and monitored for zero cross-contamination. There’s definitely good reason that this place has so many high reviews! I love not having to question if I might get sick, they take out all the guessing so you can simply relax and enjoy! it’s one of my go-tos now when I’m in town.

Awful experience. Plenty of open tables, yet a long wait. Clam chowder was watery and very expensive for a small cup and soggy salads (ugh!). The waiter was always standing in the corner on his cell phone, very inattentive to any of his tables. Disappointed as our other Legal Seafood experiences were better at different locations. This was a bad dining experience (food and customer service combined).

Staff was extremely knowledgeable about gluten free and other allergies. Had a dedicated fryer. Get the Fisherman’s platter, it is clams, shrimp, calamari, scallops, and whitefish. Tasted just like glutinous fish and chips. Location easy to get to from Alaska gates in Terminal D - a five minute walk. Also, service was very fast. For this, we will make a point to fly into Philly!
