Seafood
The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Legal Sea Foods is a Philly favorite. Surrounded by hotels and near both the Valley Forge Convention Center and Valley Forge National Historic Site, we are at a mall entrance on the upper level of the Court.

Guests get reeled in by our buzz-worthy lounge and comfortable dining room. Half-shell hedonists may sit at our 10-seat horse-shoe shaped oyster bar where slurping is encouraged.

Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker.

We’ve received a boatload of accolades including the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Birthday. We got the stuffed lobster. It could have gone without the crackers stuffed in the dish for filler.

Although we had a reservation, restaurant seemed to be overbooked. Once seated, after a wait, we had to run down a server to wait on us. Once we were served, food was very good.

It was Restaurant Week so the restaurant was busy - perhaps the staff should be increased during special promotion times. When we walked out about two hours after we entered, we were surprised to see how many people were still waiting to be seated because there were several open tables while we were dining. Although the service was slow, the food was excellent.

The $30 Restaurant Week dinner special was a great deal and the food was very good. One app, plus 1lb Lobster, plus desert makes for a great meal! Service could have been a little better in that it was a little long between sitting down and being able to order drink& food.

My wife and I have always enjoyed our visits to Legal Sea Food. This last visit was a bit disappointing in that their menu has shrunk considerably. The server was pleasant but the bar gave her an incorrect drink, which she took back. By the time the drinks were squared away, the food was on the table - a bit of a rush to what was intended to be a more leasurely dinner. Having said that, we will go back and give it another chance since we basically like the restaurant and hopefully a newer revision of the menu will show up and the service will get back to the level it always had been.

Got bang shrimp, cauliflower app , Caesar salad and cod dish. All very good. Children portions very good for price. Portions of cheeseburger were adult sized and we got a filet for my son (which was not on menu) but they did it for him. ) Very nice. Its inside the mall so very convenient if u are shopping. No prob there, nothing to rave about but all very good!

Food was very good. Service was very good.
It was expensive. We had 3 adults and 3 children.
With drinks it was close to $50/person.
With that said, it was a special occasion and everything was very good. The kids had bacon wrapped shrimp, lobster and a hamburger.
The adults had the lobster ravioli fra diavolo and a couple of tuna dishes.
All very good.
We had the cauliflower and oysters for appetizers.
Both excellent.

They were out of scallops and lobster and a fish. It was a Wednesday night. Thought it was pretty poor planning to run out of basic seafood items. We didn’t find out about the out of stock items until we had ordered and the server took the full order. She had to come back 10 minutes later to have us reorder. Also, told the server we wanted the soup hot, it was Luke warm at best and had to send it back. I was underwhelmed to say he least. I had eaten at the legal seafood in Boston several years ago and remember a very good experience.

Very disappointed. After many years (at least 20) of dining at Legal Seafood in King of Prussia, Boston Area and Washington, DC. Our favorite entry has always been the Stuffed Shrimp, which in later years was served casserole style. THEY TOOK THIS OFF THE MENU. Manager offered an explanation that they were simplifying their menu. Please bring this entry back.

They have taken numerous things off the menu in the king of Prussia legal seafood so that was disappointing. They didn’t even have the wedge salad. Put your menu back to what it was.

I had requested a quiet corner for seating as two in our party of four are hard of hearing and we were seated perfectly. The waitress ,AJ, was delightful and most helpful...knowledgeable about the ingredients of the dishes and accommodating when asked about the availability of an item not on the menu. It was a birthday celebration and she brought out our desserts with candles in the cheesecake for the birthday girl and her Mom, she added in complimentary ice cream bon-bons for everyone. Our Wedge of lettuce salad appetizer was so large that she kindly had it cut in two so it could be shared. The same with the desserts. All was very tasty and hit the spot. We did find it a bit on the expensive side but it was worth the splurge..

Food was excellent but service was lacking. Slow service from our waitress, she offered us things and didn't notify us of the upcharge and didn't bring necessary utensils/claw cracker/ wet napkins for our order (a normal when ordering shelled seafood).
