Legal Sea Foods Review

All the regional seafood classics, including famed New England chowder, stunningly good crab cakes, and wood-grilled seafood can be found here at the Cambridge outpost of the Legal chain. Just as worthwhile are more modern takes: Italian seafood stew, for example, and blackened rare tuna with sesame-chile vinaigrette.

    Nice Spot for Leisurely Lunch

    I visited a pal in Cambridge recently and she and I and another friend went to Legal in Harvard Square for Saturday lunch. We decided to sit at the bar, and we had a great time; the two of them had oysters as a starter. Our guy friend had a bowl of chowder, my pal had a salad and I had coleslaw and a fish sandwich. The bartender was charming and attentive and we all thought the food was tasty. The slaw was one of the very best I've ever had.

    Good seafood, if not the best

    Part of a large chain. Maybe not the best seafood spot locally, but still a good option. Food generally good (probably the best place to get the really thick kind of New England clam chowder), rather expensive, OK service. A weaker location in this chain than the others, food and service is more inconsistent.
