Great food, and so helpful at the airport where there are limited options. Dedicated gf fryer. You can sit down or order to-go from the host stand. We ordered to go with limited time and our food came out right away (~7 min). Allergy was clearly marked on my order. Amazing crispy fish sandwich!!

Amazing experience!! They really assure you that they take caution for gluten free foods, and have everything labeled on the menu. Even the ketchup on the table was gluten free!

Great experience. My son has celiac. The staff was very kind and experienced. His food was brought out separately with confirmation they avoided cross contamination. Lots of options

I can't even believe it - they have fish and chips - battered in gluten free batter and a gluten free fryer! So impressed. I haven't had fish and chips in years, this was an amazing treat. They are very knowledgeable as well and made sure everything was just right so I didn't get sick on my flight!

All staff are familiar with allergy requirements and were quick to point out that they have a GF fryer. The cook himself brought my fish and chips out and reassured me that it was made in a safe environment. A bit pricey, but well worth the peace of mind and it tastes great.

I frequently visit Legal Sea Foods, nearly every time I pass through Reagan airport. They have always done a great job ensuring that there is no cross contamination. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer, so it is a great place to get fish and chips.

Pricey but the fish and chips were delicious. Almost ordered the fried calamari. GF items are clearly marked on the menu. Coleslaw that came with was good too.

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.

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.

Very good gluten free breaded and fried fish and chips. Other reviewers talked about GF breads - today they said they did not have any GF breads or buns.

The meal was really good but the service was awful. Lots of gluten free options and menu clearly marked. Manager will bring the meal to insure gluten free. I didn't eat the rolls but there are gf rolls.

This legal sea foods is located behind security in Reagan national airport. It's a sit down place but they have some options as "quicker serve" options. Items that can be made gluten free are clearly marked on menu. Server said that all breaded items were gf except tempura which were cooked in a seperate fryer (if others could verify I would appreciate it!). Fries were tasty as well as crab roll with no bun. Had one gf beer on menu. Solid choice for airport.

Had GF calamari for $17 and it was tasteless. The spicy tuna sushi was very good. Service was horrible and food overpriced. My stomach also wasn’t quite right after.

My partner and I recently moved to the area and she is a severe celiac. We found Legal Sea Foods and it was off the charts good. The menu is clearly marked for gluten free options and they even had a GF mission statement. There was so much variety and everything we ordered was delicious. We definitely were not expecting GF dinner rolls fresh from the oven nor a fully fried GF fisherman's platter. My girlfriend was so ecstatic that she was finally able to have her first lobster roll. We ended the meal with GF cheesecake which was also delicious. We will definitely keep this high on our list of GF friendly restaurants. If you come in, look for Ben who was our server. He was excellent and took great care of us. He understood our GF needs and made sure everything was safely prepared.
