About
Legal Sea Foods is a Philly favorite. Come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our restaurant is located in the Main Line at the King of Prussia Mall, which is situated just 15 minutes northwest of Philadelphia. 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, easily identified by the gilded fish out front. 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. Or for those on the go, our adjacent take-out counter casts a wide net.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had lunch at legal seafood on Sunday. It's our favorite restaurant at the king of Prussia mall. It's casually elegant. My wife had the wedge salad. It was big. Curiously, it was done with a balsamic vinegar dressing. She liked it, but prefers blue cheese dressing. I had the smoked haddock chowder. It was a thick soup, served in a shallow bowl with a piece of grilled haddock in the center. The fish didn't taste smoked, but our server explained it was the chowder that had the smoky flavor, not the fish. They started us off with warm, fresh rolls. They were quite good. In the future, I think I might go back to some of my old favorites, like their grilled chicken sandwich, but overall we had a good lunch.

They say everything on their menu was in the water and swimming 5 days ago. I BELIEVE IT! Exceptionally fresh seafood, super menu, and a great staff...doesn't get better than that! A little pricey, but it is worth it if you truly enjoy a great seafood dish that is done right.

Legal Sea Foods offers fresh sea food options cooked perfectly. The shrimp cocktail was crisp and tasty. The crab cake combo offers a little of all your favorites, a broiled crab cake, grilled shrimp and scallops. Our server was friendly and efficient and made sure we enjoyed our meals.

I have been coming to this Legal Sea Food for many years. The service was excellent. The food was horrible. I ordered a stuffed baked lobster. The lobster looked like someone had it before me, and they replaced the stuffing without the lobster. The claw was cracked. I bought this to the attention of the manager, who stated that they always crack the claws, which is not valid. I get the same menu all the time. She removed the charges for my meal without a hassle. We did not eat any of our meals after that point. The facility also seems to have a rodent problem as well. I am currently trying to reach out to the corporate office to share our Photos.

Had a business dinner here and I had not been here for a few years but enjoyed it many times in years past. I was surprised and a bit concerned that on a Thursday night the place was empty at prime dinner time. Ordered an old fashioned cocktail to start and it had very little bourbon and tasted like watery syrup and the glass was to the brim with ice so very little actual cocktail. I thought it might be a one-off thing so I reluctantly ordered another hoping for a better one and it was the same watery bourbonless soda. The she crab soup was very good but the meal was average at best. The blackened salmon was over cooked and dry and the portion was very small (maybe an inch wide by 6 or 7 long). Most of the meal was the sides which were very large portions but for the price tag I'd expect a decent piece of fish especially at a seafood place but it was not to be. The service was friendly but so so. They brought the bill and put it down before even asking about coffee, dessert etc and generally our sever, while friendly, seemed to be anxious to get us out even though the place was maybe one sixteenth full. Overall I'm not anxious to return and for the price there is much better elsewhere close by. It's a shame, I really enjoyed this place years ago.

Legal Seafoods has become a chain restaurant far from its original version in Boston, MA. The last few times I have eaten here I would say the fish was average, not always cooked to perfection but pretty good. Menu is big. Wish they would stick with their original dishes and perfect them. Still can have a decent meal here.

We would like to provide feedback on the service this evening was so surprisingly slow even for a Saturday night. The server, Dillon, was doing their best and apparently they shared that they were double booked their serving area as well which added to the slowness. Normally we understand this level even for service as Dilon repeatedly apologized for our entree arriving over an hour later, and alcohol beverage also arriving as I was paying for the check and had to take our food to go as the mall had closed. My mom’s meal came over an hour later that she wound up just eating the rolls and taking it to go without being able to eat her entree. I walked up to the manager upon leaving who did not even apologize nor showed any care with his smirk. They went on to explain that he was inundated by numerous reservations that names and complained to my party and I that the numbers of people who called to complain. Normally a great or even good manager would apologize and ask what could they have done better for the next time (if there is even a next time). Considering the numbers of restaurants in this area, how sad and disappointing of customer service for the price of the food to have at least no semblance of care from this so called manager standing by the front. Not once did they come around the tables as the other guests also had late entrees. If anything, and your corporation cares about building a customer base for your restaurants, please ensure proper training to The staff especially the managers who are supposed to exemplify for others and the server showed more maturity over the clearly unhappy and unprofessional “manager”. You will continue to lose customers.

The service was excellent. The drinks were very good. The food unfortunately was not. All of the shellfish was severely over cooked; from the mussel appetizer to the cioppino and scallop entrees. The scallops were dried up and shrunken. The lobster, mussels and calamari were especially beyond overcooked. One clam and one mussel in the bowl did not even open leading me to wonder how fresh they were to start with. Wouldn’t you check this before serving them up? The mussels were very mushy. At this price point this should not be happening. When we brought it up to our server, he did offer a free dessert. We declined. We were very disappointed this time and won’t be back.

How bad could it get! Trout sent back because it was dry from being overcooked. While the server contended that the replacement trout was fresh, it was very fishy in flavor which says it was not recently caught. The scallops were dry. Perhaps no fish at Legal Seafood on a Monday Server was very nice. Nicely decorated

This was our go to restaurant for seafood. Travel from Wilmington Delaware just for the experience. The restaurant was closed during the pandemic, so we have not been here since 2020. This place is no longer the same. Crab Bisque while OK, is no longer outstanding. The crab cakes that used to be the best in the area, are no longer worth the trip. Drinks were not at good either. New owner obviously cut back on quality. We will no longer be back.

My wife and I popped in here after shopping at the mall. The place looked a little tired, but we enjoyed HH with our cheerful server Danielle. We enjoyed sharing the buffalo shrimp (fresh!) and the the drinks--the classic margarita and a white wine.

I have been going to Legal Seafood since the flagship opened in Boston. I never look at the menu because I always get the Lobster Roll. The lobster roll consisted of about 8 small claws and no tail meat. It was terrible and overpriced. I will never eat a legal seafood again.

I ordered just lobster meat for takeout from Legal Seafood. Out of curiosity, I put the cup on my food scale when I got home. I was told this is one half pound. Picture shows my home food scale reading far less than 8oz. including cup! I was charged over $40 for this disappointment! And I live too far away to ask them to correct it. Although I have had a nice dine-in meal there in the past, I resent being taken advantage of and will never go there again. Sayonara!

The best part of the meal was the service and bread. Food was mediocre at best. We both had fish that was very dry, no sauce. The asparagus was huge and very woody.
