What Chefs Say about North Coast

Supplying the finest and freshest in Boston and beyond

Superior Quality, Exceptional Service, & True Partnership

President and COO | Legal Seafoods

As a Boston-based Chef, I first became familiar with North Coast 23 years ago in 1999 while working for the Sheraton Corporation as a young Sous Chef. Even then, the team at North Coast was always available for a call, returned the respect they were given, and provided advice as the seafood experts.

They quickly became a partner that a brought with me through all my escapades in New England. As an executive Chef, I always valued North Coast’s ability to provide consistent high-quality seafood at a fair price.

Today, operating Legal Sea Foods, North Coast is an integral part of our everyday operation, providing all of the fresh and frozen seafood for our New England Brand.

North Coast is more than a vendor, they are true partners and friends.

G Bar and Kitchen - Swampscott, MA

I have been doing business with North Coast since the inception of my business 15 years ago and have always received superb “peak freshness” products to work with.

They have always been there for me to discuss and brainstorm menu changes (8 times per year) to ensure that the items will be available and consistent.
The quality of the product provided by North Coast is superior to other seafood vendors that I have used because of the way they procure, butcher, pack, and transport their product.

COO / Owner

Before using North Coast, it really was a gamble as to what we were getting, the quality, and how long it would last (if we would get it at all).
Our business has peace of mind when serving North Coast Seafoods, as the quality and shelf life is second to none and our guests can taste the difference.
Together we are one company working towards common goals.

The Beachcomber - Cape Cod

Giving North Coast my seafood business is one of the best decisions I have ever made as a food operations manager!

They have excellent product, great service, and truly care about my daily operations. They have helped me work through staff shortages by offering me time-saving products, and their dedication to temperature control is next level.

North Coast make you feel like they are working with you and working together - not just trying to make a few bucks from one of many customers.
Call them up and place an order, you’ll never regret it.
