My husband and I go here at least once a month for a night out. We always sit at the bar, where it is usually an over 30 crowd. We always check out the specials...which have never disappointed! The lemon caper sole is my favorite, it's cooked to perfection and goes nicely with jasmine rice. The bartenders could be a... More

The bar is the centerpiece of the room at Legal C Bar and its row of overhead TV screens, but the layout and the design keep the usual noise from a bar low enough that we could have a conversation at our table. Appetizers range from around $8 to $15, main courses from $16 to $30. Beers and wines were... More

Attended a wedding in Dedham. Not much to do in the area but checked out "Legacy Place" for its shops, restaurants, etc. Walked into Legal C Bar to see the menu and was immediately impressed with the ambiance and how everything smelled so good! We were seated quickly and greeted by a very friendly and patient waiter. I ordered the... More

Legal has been everyone's go-to restaurant for very good, if not spectacular, seafood, for decades. The C-Bars have a little bit more adventurous and complex menu, but are basically the same. My experiences with them (and this visit was no exception) have always turned out best when I stuck to the simpler items on the menu, which rely on Legal's... More

We went for an early dinner on Friday night and there was a wait for a table so we sat at a rear bar area in front of the kitchen immediately. This "show" was unexpectedly very enjoyable; when we asked questions about the preparation, the chefs were very informative. Of course you expect oysters to be good but these were... More

As with all the Legal Seafood restaurants I have been to, the food never disappoints. They have a great selection of fresh seafood cooked to perfection and paired with very good sides a warm crusty rolls. Good salads as well. The wait staff are effecient and attentive without being intrusive. The only negatives are the prices and the noise levels,and... More

We were very disappointed with the two specials, the wild coho salmon and the haddock - though both dishes were very flavorful, the salmon and the haddock were overcooked. Salmon is supposed to be served rare to med-rare and when you break into your haddock filet you're supposed to be greeted with that glistening, moist look - not so for... More

Legal C is a great place for date night, a special celebration, or for a lovely dinner as a couple or family. The atmosphere is fun, and it is reassuring that all meals are prepared in the open kitchen. The restaurant is perfect for lunch or dinner, and the food is always spectacular. You can't go wrong; anything you order... More

After many visits to Legal Seafoods, this was my first visit to Legal C. This is located in an upscale lifestyle center (modern shopping center). The place is attractive with a contemporary design. We took seats at the bar and were greeted right away. Drink orders were brought quickly and we reviewed the menu. The bartender took our order while... More

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.
