Description: Legal Harborside is Legal Sea Foods’ 20,000 square foot flagship property on the Boston Waterfront, comprising three floors and three different concepts under one (retractable) roof. You’ll find a nod to our heritage on the first floor hull, with a casual menu of seafood favorites with a twist, an oyster bar and a market. The second floor dining room offers cuisine prepared with sensible creativity for celebratory eating and private dining events. And those that visit the third floor promenade deck will enjoy a four-season rooftop lounge with a retractable glass roof and walls for cocktails and bites. All aboard! Located in the Seaport District, Legal Harborside is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. Legal Test Kitchen (LTK) is directly across the street.

We met our frends off of the cruse ship for lunch and to catch up. excellent lunch, they loved the lobster roll, steamers and clam chowder. Our waitress Barbara was outstanding, gave us the time we needed, checked on us ect.
after lunch we headed up to the roof deck for a drink . Our service was ok, not helpful with the drink menu, it was empty so it's not like they were over worked. One manger was friendly and pointed out places of interest.

Fantastic view from the rooftop. This has a limited menu but well worth it for the view alone. And the menu had exactly what we were looking for: Lobster Rolls! They could not have been more full of meat. Delicious! And the drinks recommended by our sensational server were to die for! It is so relaxing there. We shared our coaches with another group and thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them while watching the boat traffic in the harbor and the planes landing at Logan. Beautiful spot!

Yes it's touristy but that's what you're there for right? Their signature crab cakes and clam chowder were superb and if I could've gotten away with licking my plate clean I would have!

Traveling from Phoenix to Boston, I wanted to find a restaurant with a view of the Harbor. This was a perfect choice. Four of us sat by the first floor windows and enjoyed a wonderful lunch.
Each of us enjoy our selections from sushi to a caprise salad with salmon to a crab avocado salad. Everything was fresh and tasty, and the service was top notch.
If you are a land lover visiting from out of town this is a perfect spot for great seafood and views.

this is the crab cake I have been searching for! Fall apart, no breading, gigantic lumps, excellent flavor and texture! Granted, I live in Indiana, but if I came out here and didn't get this kind of crab cake I was going to be so disappointed. So glad we found one. My husband got the salmon burger and it too was fresh salmon that was amazing. Then you add the view and the sunny breeze out on the deck right on the water....perfection!!!
