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.

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

We love Legals and have been going for over 30 years. We went to this Legals, last night, and each of two Managers stopped by our table no less than 4 times to ask how things were and comments on how good the drinks were. All we wanted to do was have dinner and, instead, was being bothered during all... More

Was prepared to have a nice evening out to dinner with my wife. We've enjoyed eating at the Legal Seafood in Natick. Upon entry this evening we were unpleasantly greeted by the odor of rotten fish odor. It was so strong and disgusting we left right away. Not sure what was going on there tonight. Hope nobody else has this... More

I have been a really big fan of Legal's for many years. While their preparations may not be exactly gourmet, they do serve the freshest seafood in possibly the cleanest restaurants you will find anywhere. So, my "average" rating only applies to my most recent visit and not my overall view of Legal's. Quite uncharacteristically things were off last Friday... More
