Went to this restaurant on our monthly date night, and it was a very good experience. The atmosphere was great and the service was well above average. Everything was cooked to perfection and we loved the open kitchen. Being able to see everything that is happening in the back is pretty interesting to watch.

The wait on a Friday night was extremely short. The wait person was very helpful. The food was timely served and was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious Seafood meal.

I went with a friend for a celebration dinner. The waitress was cordial and attentive and did not rush us even though we were too busy to decide on what to order. The salmon was perfectly prepared as well as the sides and the pumpkin cheesecake was a wonderful way to end dinner.

A friend highly recommend we dine here and unfortunately this was a mistake. The server was very slow and the seafood entree was warm not hot. I was with a client so it was disappointing.

My husband and I go here at least once a month for a night out. We always sit at the bar, where it is usually an over 30 crowd. We always check out the specials...which have never disappointed! The lemon caper sole is my favorite, it's cooked to perfection and goes nicely with jasmine rice. The bartenders could be a... More

The bar is the centerpiece of the room at Legal C Bar and its row of overhead TV screens, but the layout and the design keep the usual noise from a bar low enough that we could have a conversation at our table. Appetizers range from around $8 to $15, main courses from $16 to $30. Beers and wines were... More

Attended a wedding in Dedham. Not much to do in the area but checked out "Legacy Place" for its shops, restaurants, etc. Walked into Legal C Bar to see the menu and was immediately impressed with the ambiance and how everything smelled so good! We were seated quickly and greeted by a very friendly and patient waiter. I ordered the... More

Legal has been everyone's go-to restaurant for very good, if not spectacular, seafood, for decades. The C-Bars have a little bit more adventurous and complex menu, but are basically the same. My experiences with them (and this visit was no exception) have always turned out best when I stuck to the simpler items on the menu, which rely on Legal's... More

Description
From Legal Sea Foods, Legal C Bar emerges – a focused yet full-flavored social urban venue, casual in style. Classic “C” fare like clams, cod, calamari as well as custom cocktails and carafes provides a contemporary, comfortable experience. Our all-day menu features favorites from Legal Sea Foods and LTK as well as new exclusives. Forty-two specialty cocktails and 25 wines by-the-glass satisfy any thirst for fun. Two bars (including one food bar) anchor the restaurant which also features communal tables, wedge booths and mezzanine seating. Come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our restaurant within the new Legacy Place lifestyle center will get you hooked.
