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 have been to Legal C Bar several times. We have never had a bad meal there. We especially love their clam chowder. Having had our meals at a table and at the bar, we actually prefer to sit at the bar. The bartenders are always very attentive and friendly. Am looking forward to our next visit there!

Loved the atmosphere! We waited at the bar while waiting; the drinks came out really fast! We were taken to our table by a really nice waitress. I always love clam pasta. I was impressed by it! Perfect Al Dente, creamy sauce, yum! If you are visiting Boston, it is a MUST visit place!

Fortunately the food was very good and the waitress was friendly. Unfortunately, the treatment by what seemed to be a manager was horrible. After a coworker and myself enjoyed the meal and were having some drinks, a gentleman holding a tablet (obviously a device to keep track of seating) wearing a bright yellow sweater, approached our table and explained that...

We have eaten here perhaps 4 or 5 times. We almost always love to eat in any Legal Seafood restaurant, and the food here has been up to their standard each time. We are especially fond of their crab cakes. But this location is incredibly noisy, painfully so at leak dinner hours. So we try to eat outside in their... More

Always enjoy the fresh seafood. Service was "respectful" but lacked personal touch. Atmosphere a bit cold but nice enough.

Ordered the lobster bake with friends. Fresh and tasty. Comes with a full lobster, chowder, mussels, steamers. Good size. A bit expensive though. Have to try at least once in a life :-)

I recently acquired an allergy to shellfish....good-by oysters, paella, clam chowder etc. But we were in the Boston area for a wedding and I was determined to try some seafood at one of the area Legal Seafood restaurants. Our hotel was right across the street from Legal C Bar, so we went Saturday as soon as they opened to try... More

Visited Legal C Bar with a business associate for lunch. Decor is trendy, but comfortable. Service was excellent; friendly, informative, and efficient. I had a daily special of grilled fish which was very good, although a bit pricey for lunch. My associate had the crab cakes which she said were also good. Definitely a nice place to meet for business... More

Waited 10min for waitress. Addtl 10min for water and milk for kids. Ordered wine, but after 15min were told the bottle was out; took an additional 10 to get 2 glasses of something else. Really disappointing given this was a weeknight (I could understand weekend, maybe). At least the adult food was good. Kids meals were "eh"... Mac & Cheese... More
