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.

Though bit expensive, but must try

The sea food dishes are just fabulous . Loved each of the dishes ordered, the favorite most was the stuffed lobster. The location is very convenient but bit pricey.

The Bar is great. Staff is friendly. Food is fresh and delicious. Place is exceptionally clean, even the bathroom. A little pricey, but worth the trip. I average once a month.

Not all Legal Sea Food restaurants are created equal, and among Roger B's empire, the Legal C Bar at Legacy Place, Dedham, earns my top vote. While the menu reflects all the usual -- and some unusual -- New England seafood favorites, my friends and I often prefer to spend a lazy summer afternoon sipping on perfectly seasoned Bloody Marys...

Menu is kind of limited, and the atmosphere is very cold. Place is kind of noisy. Waitstaff were friendly and knowledgeable. Food was ok: not the best, even in a mall with only five other choices. Prices weren't steep, but it's never going to make a' cheap eats' list either

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.

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 oyster bar is exceptional,... More

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.
