The food was terrific, as expected from any of their locations. However, we were bringing a group and had made a reservation for a separate dining room. They required a large minimum purchase of food & beverage, and would not let our guests order from...More

On a business trip found that there was a Legal Seafood in the Tyson's Galleria and stopped by for an early dinner. Ate in the bar area and enjoyed happy hour wine prices, great service and the best piece of Halibut I have ever had.

You can't go far wrong with Legal Seafoods. Good menu choice and quality seafood. This restaurant is inside Tysons Galleria so free parking just outside and stores to pass the time.

Was craving some good seafood. Opted for this place and it did not disappoint. I sat upstairs at the bar and ordered the fish and chips. Great portion and made just right. Good drink selection and good prices too. Richard, my bartender, was extremely welcoming...More

Once again Legal Seafood delivers. Starting with piping hot sour dough rolls, clam chowder and fresh pot of coffee. The Cod fish was outstanding. Thank you for being consistently superb.

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods - really fresh fish. Virginia is for lovers (of seafood)! Our two-story restaurant is double the fun with entrances on both levels for easy entree. Choose to make a splash in the downstairs dining room or in the bar upstairs. Our landscaped interior patio is also a popular lure. Our convenient restaurant location within Tysons Galleria will get you hooked. 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 "Best Place for Great Seafood" (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008), "Best Crab Cakes" (Washingtonian Magazine, 2008) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.
