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.

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!

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.

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.

We have been several times. All their fried foods are gf, but they still keep all gf items very separate. I love the bread and croutons on the salads. You don't get those things at many places.

Our server, Brian, was super. Instantly offered how meal would be prepared to make it gluten free. Very tasty gf rolls were brought out for my son and myself. Manager brought out our gf meals. When asked if we were there for Mother's Day (a day early), we said no but for son's birthday and he brought out a little birthday treat, gf, for my son. A truly enjoyable experience.

This place is fantastic! The GF rolls here taste just like I remember from a cruise ship .. so delicious and my server gave me some to take home, no upcharge. The manager came to the table and talked to me about the safe practices they have in place for allergies and then brought my food to the table. The house salad is delicious .. and most things can be prepared GF. My husband and I had the fish and chips. Looking forward to trying more things soon. Enjoy!

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!

I also got a chicken Caesar salad to go and the waiter asked if I'd like gf croutons on top- yes!! They were very attentive to gf, and everything fried is gf.

Legal is my favorite restaurant by far. I’ve lived in Nashville and Atlanta the past several years and always make a point to come here every time I’m back home (originally from Boston). They’re amazing with celiac. Never been glutened, manager always brings out the food, can do GF fried clams, onion strings, etc.

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!!

Not the usual Legal experience. In every other restaurant, a manager has brought my food and confirmed it was gluten-free. Not only was the service terrible here, but they didn’t seem to take Celiacs seriously. I had to ask three times to make sure the dish was safe and staff acted completely annoyed by my concern. I have never had a bad experience at Legal’s, but will never come back to this location.

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!
