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.

Good Seafood but Expensive

One thing you can say about Legal Seafood is they are all consistently good. The Legal C Bar in Dedham is no exception. However to be trendy they are moving away from their true New England seafood roots adding items like fried pickles and ribs. We went for the seafood so we stuck to that. Their... read more

I get to a Legal restaurant here and there mostly for business meetings and each time I leave thinking how poor the value for money is. You should not leave a restaurant each time with that thought. This is a place I really want to like. It is a good seafood restaurant but they are super expensive and I find... More

Had an excellent dinner while visiting Dedham. I enjoyed my lobster bisque and crab cakes. Others in my party loved their lobster rolls. The cocktails and service were both excellent.

Came here with a few co-workers to have dinner and it was just OK in my opinion. I had the steamed lobster which was drenched in butter in addition to the little dipping bowl of butter. I had the mash potato's and asparagus which also were just OK. Everyone else enjoyed their meal, but the consensus around the table was... More

Legal in the suburbs is as good as all of the other legal restaurants. They have delicious drinks and the seafood is always perfect.

I wasn't super impressed with Legal C bar. The food was average and what you would expect from a chain restaurant. The seafood isn't as fresh as I would have hoped, but it's a nicely set restaurant.

We visited Legal C Bar to celebrate a combination of birthdays and Fathers Day with our blended family. We had made a reservation and they had no problem seating us as we arrived separately. For appetizers we had the fried pickles calamari and edamame which were all quite good. The mains included crab cakes, fish sandwiches, burgers, grilled chicken and... More

Had a dinner meeting and we all had appetizers and mains. Sashimi Tuna, shrimp cocktails and salads. Mains included scrod, salmon and a unique quinoa pizza dish. Salmon colour was varied which was a little suspicious but that was good. Scrod was simple but very tasty. Good seafood. Service is OK, but so big and busy it isn't overly personal... More

I grew up going to Legal Sea Foods on special occasions before leaving the Boston area. While back in the area on business I was astonished and pleased to find Legacy Place and Legal C Bar in Dedham on a Wednesday night. My colleagues and I window shopped in some of the nearby stores while we waited for our table... More

I was in the mood for some seafood and first of all the parking was a nightmare. Legacy place is very upscale but the parking was horrible. I was traveling alone so I sat at the bar and the place was a zoo. The food (grilled scallops) was delicious but $40 plus tip was a little over the top. Anyway... More
