Legal Sea Foods

Boston's Legendary Source for Seafood

Legal Sea Foods was born in 1950 when George Berkowitz opened a fish market in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1968, the Berkowitz family opened its first seafood restaurant, right next to the fish market. Word spread that this was the place to go for the freshest seafood in Boston. And it’s here that the “Legal®” name became synonymous with quality and freshness.

This early success led to further expansion and now, six decades later with restaurants along the Eastern Seaboard, the family philosophy endures: “If it isn’t fresh, it isn’t Legal!”

We're not the only ones who love them!

Legal Sea Foods has been featured in The Washington Post, USA Today, and Eater. Their clam chowder has also been served at the Presidential inauguration for decades.
