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.

The nice thing is, as with all legal seafoods, the food is predictably great ! On a business trip and stayed at the Hilton in Dedham. I have eaten often at the various Legal Seafoods but never here. It's a newer, more contemporary version of the others with lots of bar seating and noisy. It... read more

Legal C Bar is one of our favorite restaurants in Dedham. The food is always really delicious and fresh and the prices are fairly reasonable. If you can, make a reservation as it's always very crowded, especially on weekends.

I went to Legal C in Legacy Place while on business in area. The restaurant is in Legacy Place shopping area which has multiple restaurants, shops and a Whole Foods. The restaurant is more updated and hip version of the traditional Legal Sea Foods. There is large bar area and multiple seating areas. I was by myself and sat at... More

Great food at reasonable prices but be prepared for a loud atmosphere with close seating- especially on a crowded week end night.

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

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.

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

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.
