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.

we were in Boston on a college visit with my youngest daughter, and wanted something close to where we were staying (Hilton in Dedham) that was seafood. We were seated promptly and service remained quite efficient, low key, just what one would want. Our food was excellent; my daughter loved her truffled lobster mac and cheese, my crab cake and...

The bar staff is amateur at best. They complain (I guess being bartenders) the entire time, visibly. Amazing how bad the service is, literally never seen anything like it.

Restaurant is a bit lost in a giant not so pleasant strip mall around a giant horrible car park. Urban planning they don't seem to know too well in Dedham. Service was exceptional, ambiance was great. Food is an eclectic mix of all things seafood. Some good wines. Overall not cheap but one of the few good business dinner places... More

Food and service was exceptional and great care was given to food allergies. I would definitely return here. We all enjoyed our delicious meals. Oysters to start were top drawer.

For the price that you pay you would imagine impeccable service and food presentation, so not the case! Our server was obviously occupied with other things as she was lacking in completing our orders without checking back to make sure she had it right. She could clearly see we were not happy,and either she told the manager and he or... More

Went for lunch on a recent rainy Saturday, go to Legal's frequently but this was our first visit to a "Legal C". I much prefer the "regular" Legal's based on our visit. The bartender was OK but never offered rolls (maybe they don't have them at Legal C?) and when asked to change TV channel never did. (the second bartender... More

The service in this place is awesome, very personable and friendly, nice atmosphere too. The bread and butter they bring to table was so delicious I probably could have eat 3 or 4 of them but restrained myself and ate 2. I had the fish and chips (boring I know) it was not the best I have ever had but... More

The Crabmeat Roll was quite tasty. However, the sides and the service left a bit to be desired. A bean dip served with the house rolls wasn't necessary and didn't look appetizing. A side of coleslaw was too large and completely undressed; a drizzle of vinaigrette would have gone a long way. It would make for a more nicely rounded... More

We went here thinking that the food would be comparable to Legal Seafood -- but in our opinion it did not measure up. Perhaps we were expecting too much -- it might be OK for a sports bar. But it did not meet our expectations -- which were based on many visits to Legal Seafoods.
