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.

Great Seafood

Never disappointed by the food here. Upbeat atmosphere although can be a little noisy. A substantial part of it is the bar. Enjoy the well prepared seafood dishes and tasty sides, I prefer the baked or grilled selections. Prices are reasonable and service always seems to be excellent.

Although we had reservations, I think we got the worst table in the restaurant ... right by the door and crowd. That started things off poorly ... my friend and I could barely hear each other across the table. Other than that, the food was Legal's typical top quality and preparation. I had the fish and chips which were not... More

The combo is my favorite, and I usually do not drift from this dish. The crab cake, shrimp and scallops taste fresh are prepared to my liking. I do vary the appetizers and side dishes, this time trying a Quinoa salad that tasted great. This is not a quiet intimate restaurant. That does not bother me at all. They have... More

Very good food but a little expensive. I generally get their seared tuna and all of their fish is fresh and delicious.But the noise is awful

I loved the lobster bisque. Try the tuna sashimi wrapped in sea weed. The sea weed on the side was exceptionally good! The linguini and clamps was okay. not great.

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
