It had been awhile since our last dining experience here, unfortunately the food has not improved and the wait staff was even more disappointing. We will not be returning

As usual, Legal Sea Foods served up great food, but a family 50 feet away was having a very loud and boisterous good time that disturbed other diners, and the management did not intervene. To be fair, however, we did not ask them to intervene,...More

Three people who can't agree on anything agreed on dinner here. The food is reliably good. Lots of menu options, including the favorites like fish & chips.

The Legal Seafood restaurant in McLean maintains their great reputation; good selection of fresh fish & good service. Parking is available in the mall garage. Good selection of wines.

Legal Sea Food is one of my favorites eateries. Haven't tried anything I don't like yet. Trout is excellent. Simple fish and chips are elevated to a gourmet plate. The halibut (not always available) is to die for. But my all times favorites are the...More

I love seafood, so my standards are high. I thought Legal Seafood was an average. Not great, and not bad. The service was good and professional. I would eat at seafood again.

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.
