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.

It was a Saturday night, we get it. Restaurant was freezing cold and my Wife and I froze the entire meal. Scott was so busy he forgot everything. We ordered sparkling water and got regular, ordered again and again. Plenty of staff walking around and doing nothing. The portions were tiny for a top price restaurant. I would think that... More

We have been going to the C-Bar since it opened its doors as the family had been going to Legal restaurants for years. This holiday season, we ate here 5 or 6 times and the food was always excellent. We have noticed a couple of things at this specific location: there are always specials (lately at other Legal places there... More

The Legal C Bar in Dedham at Legacy Place is still a top choice for a casual night out. Yes, it's crowded - that happens when a place has consistently good food. And yes, it's a bit noisy when it's crowded - what else would you expect from a happy crowd of diners? But the bottom line is that the... More

You can never go wrong with Legal Seafood. We sampled 3 different lunches, and one was better than the next.

Last night we were craving New England seafood staples; Whole Belly Clams and Steamers and at Legal C Bar, just as Legal Seafood in Boston, they did not fail us. We went there ordered our cravings and we were delivered exactly what we had in mind; delicious Whole Belly Clams and Steamers. The ambiance was lovely, not too noisy and... More

First off, the food may be the best Legal food I have ever had and there have been lots of meals. I would have enjoyed the food more if the noise level wasn't so excessive. There are too many tables and bar seats for the size of the resaurant. This is compounded by the noise of a very busy, completely,... More

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.
