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 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.

You'll have to figure out when they serve this. I'm not giving away my secrets - but there is nothing better than sitting on the balcony, sipping Old Fashioned's (they make great ones there), and having a cup of clam chowder, and eating Lobster Mac and Cheese. I like the balcony as you get a nice view of the restaurant,... More

A little noisy; Wait staff very attentive and friendly. New England Clam chowder and BOston Scrod were excellent.

Stopped here for dinner while I stayed at the Residence Inn Dedham for business. I have a decent amount of downtime when I travel, so it was nice to pull up a barstool at Legal C, have a great dinner, and have a few shipyards. Very nice and accommodating bartenders. I had the lobster ravioli, which was packed with big... More

Very cool decor, lots of reclaimed wood. They also have a row of seats on a "balcony" overlooking the restaurant. Huge bar and lots of tables. The selection is good with a wide range of apps and small plates, soups and main dishes. For 2 people we split tuna sashimi appetizer (really fresh), white clam pizza (appetizer - good but... More

More and more my experiences at Legal have been disappointing and this was no different. I ordered mussels which were tough and chewy and tasted off - not at all the plump tender mussels I had hoped for. One of the wine by the glass selection was out of stock (and it's not like there are a ton of wine... More

As a more causal offshoot of the Legal Seafood Company, the Legal C Bar provides the opportunity to enjoy both seafood and libations in a causal environment. Our party ordered the largest lobsters dinners available ( 2-2.5lbs) and after an initial faux paux by the chef, we enjoyed some of the best seafood that the area has to offer. We... More

We have been to many Legal Sea Foods and have enjoyed them all. This is a busy and bustling place with great service and food.

If you don't like the fruits of the sea then I'd suggest that this isn't the place for you. The menu is quite comprehensive but on a single page and easy to navigate and when my meal arrived I felt that I made a great choice. Interestingly I felt after checking my colleagues dishes that they had also chosen well,... More
