Legal Sea Foods offering free lobster rolls, $1 clam chowder this January

Want to eat clam chowder for a good cause? Well, Legal Sea Foods can help you with that.

Starting Monday, Jan. 15, the seafood restaurant chain will be giving away cups of its beloved New England Clam Chowder for just $1. This is part of the chain’s annual tradition called “Chowda Day,” which was officially launched last year. Proceeds from the holiday will be donated to Boston Children’s Hospital.

The company is also celebrating “Chowda Day” online at Shop Legal Sea Foods where customers can order and ship two quarts of chowder anywhere in the country for $20. The restaurant is hoping to break the all-time “Chowda Day” record of over 9,000 cups ordered and calls.

“Our New England Clam Chowder is a beloved part of Boston’s heritage,” said Matt King, Legal Sea Foods Brand president and COO. “Legal Sea Foods is thrilled to continue the ‘Chowda Day’ tradition and give back to help kids at Boston Children’s Hospital. We are grateful for the ongoing support of our cherished guests and extraordinary restaurant team who continually surpass expectations and make it possible to do what we do.”

Hungry for more? Then head back to one of Legal Sea Foods’ locations starting Tuesday, Jan. 16, for your chance to get a free lobster roll. The chain is launching its first-ever limited-time offer where rewards members can get a free Maine lobster roll if they buy one roll at a regular price.

This signature New England-style dish is loaded with a half pound of Maine lobster meat and served traditionally with lemon mayo and chives or warm butter-poached on top of a perfectly grilled bun.

The “BOGO” is only available for rewards members. Diners have until Jan. 31 to sign up by creating an account online, downloading the new Legal Net Rewards app, or in-restaurant by scanning a QR code.

More information can be found on Legal Sea Foods’ website.
