This is my first visit to Legal C Bar, a concept owned by the Legal Sea Foods chain. The wine list is decent and the menu covers the favourites most would expect. The food itself was ok, but nothing to write home about. I ordered...More

Went here with friends after a terrific fundraiser in Westwood. We got a nice booth and had good service and great drinks. It was actually much better than expected considering it was in a "mall type area". Plenty of free parking too.

Been several times and the food and service is consistently good. The menu can be innovative (bento box among other things) but it also tends a little more toward bar food (sandwiches etc) than the non “C Bar” Legals restaurants for those looking for pure...More

After stopping in here for a quick bite, albeit the servers were quite friendly and polite, I quickly became very dissatisfied with the menu options available. I was quite astonished that the only shrimp “dish” offered at a deemed seafood restaurant was an overly-priced appetizer,...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.
