Very cool atmosphere....incredible menu and specials, extensive wine menu and craft beers. The raw bar selections are vast and excellent. The coconut shrimp app is very good, the Sole Francais entree is massive....good for 2 people. The crab cake combo looked small but was very good and very filling. Excellent location and great menu....highly recommend

A recent evening trip to Legal C Bar was largely disappointing. There were some good aspects, but overall, my advice is to stay away. First, the service. Our waiter, David, was a pain. There is a fine line between ‘attentive’ and ‘annoying’; sadly he was nowhere near the line. I really do not care that he felt that he was... More

Overpriced. Tough parking (which is a Legacy thing overall). Service is solid but prices and quality make not worth a re-visit/

Really liked the more intimate and casual setting. And, as always the chowder was excellent. I would definitely come back, if in the area. We had a large group and the wait staff was just great.

Met up with friends for a casual, leisurely time and for the most part it worked out well. The food was very good, the food came our quickly and everyone in our group enjoyed what they ordered. We were seated next to a young family that was very noisy, fortunately they left shorty after we arrived, and since the place... More

It's bad. Avoid. No reason to ever come here, unless you love mayonnaise everywhere, but first, the fries. It's not that easy to mess up fries, but they do here. We arrived 45 minutes after opening, and the french fries were cool and stale. The most likely explanation, since it was just 45 minutes after opening, is they were poorly... More

Went to this restaurant on our monthly date night, and it was a very good experience. The atmosphere was great and the service was well above average. Everything was cooked to perfection and we loved the open kitchen. Being able to see everything that is happening in the back is pretty interesting to watch.

The wait on a Friday night was extremely short. The wait person was very helpful. The food was timely served and was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious Seafood meal.

I went with a friend for a celebration dinner. The waitress was cordial and attentive and did not rush us even though we were too busy to decide on what to order. The salmon was perfectly prepared as well as the sides and the pumpkin cheesecake was a wonderful way to end dinner.

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.
