    Best Chowda in the biz!

    I grew up in Massachusetts and frequented Legal Seafoods during that time. I moved to Wisconsin in '86 and the loss of the fresh seafood was a major downer (still is) for me. I met my wife out here and we have visited Boston a few times and the first time we did I brought her to the Legal Seafood location by the Aquarium and made sure she tried the clam chowder. It is literally to die for. I've tried many a chowder in my Boston days and none can compare to Legal's. This past New Years Eve we treated ourselves and ordered 2 gallons online for overnight delivery. It was expensive but SO worth it. I think we will be treating ourselves more often than once a year now because it is really that good. If you have never been to a Legal Seafoods location, you should put it on your bucket list. If you can't make it to one, than place an order online. The shipping sucks, but in the end its a small price to pay for the best clam chowder in the world brought to you fresh...

    We shipped Legal Seafood's Famous Clam Chowder to our home to discover how fabulous it truly tastes! We were thrilled with the delicious chowder and tasty dinner rolls which baked up beautifully. We also enjoyed superior cold shrimp with Legal's divine cocktail sauce!

    I went to school in Boston and every time my parents woudl visit, we had to go to Legal's so my dad could have the chowder. Now for Father's day, I send him a quart so he can enjoy it and he is always so pleased. The chowder is always great. You can't beat having in Boston while over looking the Harbor, but this is the next best thing.

    Your clam chowder is the best ever. It was still frozen when it arrived in its foam cooler and ice packs. The flavor beats any other according to my friend who is from Boston, and I have to agree.

    I have never had better New England Clam Chowder. It's amazing how tender you get the clams. The first chowder I ever had that was made by you was actually clam and corn chowder that I purchased at a nearby Costco. They never had it again. It was absolutely my favorite. There is a fish market in downtown Los Angeles that makes a shrimp and corn chowder that is seasonal. Do you folks have a recipe for that? I would certainly put that on my shopping list as a "must buy"

    I just moved to California from Boston...and let me tell you, the "New England" clam chowder they have here was so disappointing! I had to give them a taste of the GOOD stuff! I ordered a lot of chowder for my team here at the Beverly Hills Hotel and they were so excited! Then I got nervous! What if the mail order was not as good as when I am in the restaurant! I talked it up so much that if they didn't enjoy it I would never hear the end of it. Well, happy to say that when it came here, the chefs easily heated it up and about 15 or so people go to enjoy the chowder. THEY LOVED IT!!!! Everyone said it was the best they ever had! I am very proud to not only be from Boston but I also worked for Legal Seafoods in Braintree for 2 years :) Thank you for making it so easy for me to bring a piece of home to my "new" home! I can't wait to come home in August for a visit and have more!! Warmest Regards, Tracey Gavin Catering Sales Manager The Beverly Hills Hotel

    Made One of My Cousin's Final Wishes Come True

    I have a cousin outside of Austin, TX diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. As a means to make his last few months as enjoyable as possible, various family members have been shipping him his favorite foods from all over the country. Many people had to go to the trouble of obtaining shipping containers and dry ice to ship their local flavor of choice to him. Having lived in the Boston area up until last year, I was requested by him to deliver New England Clam Chowder. Legal was the first that came to mind, but I was concerned about shipping. A friend told me about your mail order service. Well, it could not have been easier and the Clam Chowder arrived in two days as promised. There a Facebook pictures of him eating what he called "some of the best New England Clam Chowder he had ever eaten". Thanks Legal, for enabling me to grant my cousin one of his final wishes!!!

    Expensive but worth it once in a while. Former Bostonians here in Florida miss your chowder. Somewhat concerned with last order ice was near out with our very hot weather. Shipping usually keeps us waiting because of cost so we are waiting for free or reduced shipping.Hope to continue getting future shipments. Unfortunate 2 Legals here in Florida closed because of poor management. Only restaurant that did not serve hot french fries.

    It has been years since we received your clam chowder as a gift. Despite the high price and shipping cost, I finally ordered some . I'm so glad it is just as delicious as I remembered ! For your information: The lower parts of the package were partially thawed as they were against a cold pack. The upper parts of the container remained frozen apparently due to the dry ice.

    We ordered two soups and this one was not good, although the lobster bisque was great! The clam chowder had broken milky and lumpy texture with no creaminess. It tasted more like potato and onion soup with a slight flavor of clam, even though there were some whole clams in it. Maybe it was an "off" batch since the bisque was so delicious and creamier?!


    Thank you!

    Always enjoyed the chowder when visiting the northeast. It is a real treat to have it shipped to us to enjoy in CA.
