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.

We had a very good experience at Legal Seafoods. Our sever was very quick and courteous. The food was delicious! The portions could have been a little greater for the money paid, but overall, it was a terrific dinner.

Dinner was fine nothing spectacular.

At the conclusion of the meal while sitting and talking with friends we had a mouse and something else I couldn’t tell (looked like a car or rat) ran across the dining floor.

I will not to back

My wife and I enjoyed dinner with a friend who had not been to LS. We were greeted warmly and welcomed to a table. Our server was attentive but not intrusive and the food was wonderful-we had different entries-crab and salmon which we throughly enjoyed. We had the wedge salad , with an oil dressing which was not my favorite-it was good but I prefer a creamy topping. The wine selection was broad enough to allow everyone to pair their wine with their meal. We were pleasantly full from the meal so we passed on dessert. The hostess took the time to greet us on the way out and asked about our dinning experience. Overall, a nice evening meal!

Go for the Raw Bar. We arrived early and they still sat us quickly. The decor seemed slightly dated and worn but did not reflex on the atmosphere. We had the Large Treasures of the Reef. It was amazing. It was the freshest seafood I have ever eaten. The shrimp and lobster were meaty and delicious and the assortment of oysters were so fresh and tasty. Everyone agreed that the entrees were acceptable but not great and definitely not worth the price. Overall it was good overall experience and would recommend it to anyone interested in a great raw bar.

Fine for families who do not mind a noisy restaurant. Prices were quite high for a family restaurant. Appetizers were fine but main courses were ok - just not really good for the price

light and bitter. The service was good but I doubt I'll be back

We started eating at Legal in the late '90s when living in New England. We were excited when opened in KOP and was never disappointed. However, this time, something didn't seem quite right. It seemed different. The menu was not the same and the air of a very popular eating destination was lacking. Every time we dined there in the past, it was as if it was a special place. I don't know. I don't want to be unfair because the food and service was very good, and the prices were within expectations, but something was not familiar. It seemed run of the mill.

I entertained two guests the other night at Legal Seafood. It was very pleasurable. The only disappointment was that the mixed grill (my personal favorite) had been removed from the menu.
Oysters were fabulous and the tuna was exceptional

I thought it was supposed to be more upscale than it was. The servers were in button down oxfords with no tie, and looked a bit shabby. Everyone was nice, but the place was nearly empty. We quite expected it to be busier. Wine menu struck me as the type you would get at Applebee’s. Laminated paper folded in the middle. Clearly the wine selection doesn’t change often, however they had a couple nice whites to drink with seafood. The appetizers were very good, in fact, they were the best part of dinner. Entrees were not bad, but a bit lackluster compared to the delicious apps. We didn’t have dessert. All in all, it was alright but not super memorable.

The food was ok good enough. The scallops were great! However this was my first dinning experience with Legal Seafoods and I was expecting to be amazed but it was. Average. I’m someone that’s cooks and when the food does not top what I do at hone then it becomes somewhat disappointing. My expectations is that the chef should be able to top me and when they don’t then I feel like I could have stayed at home for this. But what really caught me wrong is when the guy comes out and starts wiping down the table and chairs and then goes to the next table and then wipes with that same cloth. That is wrong on so many levels. People put their behinds in those chairs and then you wipe the table that people eat on with it. He should have separate towels for that. The waiter was ok but he was in a rushed state the entire time and so it lacked personal attention. Not so sure that I need to come back.

While our food & service were good we waited a long time for our soups & appetizer. Our waiter noticed that we were waiting a long time & did all he could to speed things up but somehow our meal ticket was lost. Our entrees were delicious. Our soups & cauliflower appetizer were taken of our bill which we thought was very nice since we didn’t complain to the management. We will definitely give LSF another try.

The clam chowder is excellent. The warm rolls are also very tasty. The fried oysters were juicy and tasty. The french fries were a bit soggy because they were under the oysters. The cole slaw was okay. Portions are good.

This is our favorite place for family celebrations. The staff goes out of their way to make it a great experience. With an infant and a family member in a large motorized wheelchair, our mother's day lunch couldve been very difficult but from the hostess to our server Marissa to the manager, everyone was very accommodating and happy to make our meal a nice celebration. Great people!

As always, the seafood was fresh and delicious! I have never ordered a steak there before (I've been to many of their locations multiple times) but I brought my children there as a celebration for college/high school graduation and they wanted lobster. Their food was delicious (I tried a bit of theirs) and my steak was cooked to perfection! I have never, in almost ten years of eating at the King of Prussia location had a bad meal or poor service. Worth every single penny!

I come here for great dining experience and have never been disappointed. Maryland cream of crab soup, shrimp cocktail, fish and chips topped off with key lime pie! All was great. I love that raspberry sauce on that pie!

Our waitress,Brittany, was attentive, pleasant and we couldn't have asked for more!

First time there 4 people total. By end of the meal We determined it to be an overpriced Red lobster. Funny part is I only went to red lobster once and never went back. Will be the Same with Legal Seafood. Food was just average, from appetizers thru dessert. The fish was over cooked, the bananas foster was more like bananas in a Carmel sauce. Raw oysters were the smallest I ever ate. I had a makers mark old fashion drink which came to the table almost clear from the lack of bourbon and full of soda and sugar. Service was good but that was about the extent of it

We have eaten at Legal Seafoods for more than 20 years & dined at your restaurants from Atlanta to Boston. Our meal last night did not measure up to the standards we have come to expect from Legal. Specifically, we did not receive certain items we’d ordered, the service was dreadfully slow and the menu was very limited. The food quality was just so-so.
