A word from Legal C Bar - Hingham
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, and calamari as well as custom cocktails provides a contemporary, comfortable experience.

Legal C Bar’s menu complements the bar forward concept and features many items suitable for sharing while also offering options for more traditional coursed dining. Oyster lovers will find at least 8 different varieties daily. Nineteen signature cocktails, 37 wines by-the-glass, and 20 beers satisfy any thirst.

We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981. Come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our restaurant at the Derby Street Shoppes will get you hooked.

  • "My sister and I took our mom out to lunch at Legal C in Hingham for her birthday. The service was perfect, the food was good, and the wine list was great. No complaints."

  • "Nothing to complain about here! We always enjoy Legal Seafoods when we are in the Boston area. I was happy to find we didn't have to leave the Hingham area to enjoy it on this trip. Clam chowder was good. Fish and chips are always a favorite. I like that Legal always seems to be trying out some new recipes in their appetizer section. And - this is weird to write - but the kids' burger is surprisingly delicious. I stole a few bites. Our waiter was very attentive and service was good. We had three kids under ten with us and this was fine for them."

  • "I came here with my husband and my parents, we had a great night. We split the crab cake and the mussels, both were great. Everyone loved their meal, I forget what everyone ordered... but my favorite part was the flight of white wine! 3 well sized portions for $12, can't beat it. Our waitress was awesome and I loved how casual the place was for Hingham. We'll be back!"

  • "I went to this restaurant for an early Father's Day lunch with my 3 children and my wife. AlThe service was fantastic and all of the appetizers and main courses we had were great as well. Overall, the place had a good vibe and very friendly employees. The prices are fairly high, so would not be able to make it an everyday occurrence, but we enjoyed our lunch very much."

  • "Great time at legal c bar hingham! Our server Shelley introduced us to the Spanish wine promotion and my brother who is not a wine drinker normally ordered the white wine flight. He enjoyed being able to try 3 different types of white and discovered he likes Chardonnays best. We shared a couple of appetizers, bang bang cauliflower and tune sashimi, and we both ordered something different for dinner so we could try each other's. He had the beer battered red fish feature and i had Anna's Boston scrod. Everything was excellent from the service to the food to the conversations with my brother! Will definitely be back again!!"

  • "An expected back up st the front door but worried. Time for a beverage and we were doon seated. Great manager sent over some apps as an apology. Great food and excellent service. Not sure about the decor...a bit bleak....could be softened up with a bit more color and more fabric to absorb the noise. Noise bounced all over the room. Quiet rend down snit later. Music was not a factor when it should be."

  • "We had another outstanding dining experience at Legal C in Hingham. The entire staff are friendly and attentive. Everyone did their best to ensure we had a great dinner. The manager welcomed us and come over a few times to see how we liked our appetizers and dinners. He recommended an excellent wine from their new Spanish wine list which was excellent. We had a great dinner."

  • "There's not much to say other than Legal Seafoods has done it again with a nice gem in a suburban location. It's now been open more than a year and we've eaten here 15 times. Each time has been memorably excellent - either for the quality of food, the personality and charm of the server or bartender, or for a combo of both. When we're looking for a can't-miss evening or lunch, this is our standard. The management is super attentive, too. Great team."

  • "I took my girlfriend and her mom there for Mothers Day and everything was great! We had a great server, dinner, and couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had a party of six for a Mothers Day dinner. Seated at a nice table that probably would have been better for four but it worked. Food was great. One person ordered crab cakes and thought they were a bit undercooked (soggy in the middle) and they immediately replaced them and the new dish was great. Service was spectacular. Pleasantly surprised to see Cakebread sold by the glass there. Room is a bit stark but we were focused more on table conversation than the decor. Overall it was a very nice experience."

  • "I brought my family (wife, two boys ages 12 and 9) to Legal C Bar for Mother's Day. We all love seafood, and have gone to various Legals for many years. I chose the C Bar after reading the description on their web page. I wanted something a little different. Our meal was terrific! We had their sinfully rich deviled egg, two servings of our beloved tuna sashimi (my 12 year old adores this dish!), a dozen Merry and Kusshi oysters that were perfect, and different very good main dishes. The bar menu is inventive. The restaurant did not do anything special for the mothers (or, at least, not for our party), which, given that we spent $200, is a bit odd, but this was a small bump in the otherwise extremely smooth road."

  • "We typically don't go out on Mother's Day, but thought we'd give it a try. Talk about pleasantly surprised! Top notch food (swordfish and lobster), great staff (even with a cranky 6 year old), and fantastic atmosphere. We loved C Bar to begin with, but they have officially sealed the deal! "

  • "Girlfriend and I went there for a late lunch. I had an amazing "old fashioned". We started off with calamari rhode island style, popcorn shrimp, and half dozen clams in a half shell. Our calamari was rubbery and overcooked. The server quickly took it, and came back a few minutes later. That too was a little over cooked but tolerable. Clams were fresh and amazing, and the popcorn shrimp had a cute play on the words with actual kettle style popcorn mixed with it. By the time we finished the appetizers, Andy (the manager) brought out our entrees. I must say our server wasn't VERY attentive. As I needed a new drink and waited quite a bit. It was slow and you could see all the servers gathered around near the kitchen doorway. "

  • "We normally go to the "C" bar on Saturday afternoons, we find the food really fresh and done perfectly. We love the chowdah :). We went last Saturday in the evening and the menu was a bit different from the afternoon, but everything was prepared well and it was Delish. Our waitress Sarah was very nice, attentive and knowledgable. "

  • "We were welcomed as soon as we entered and led to our table. Our waitress, Shelley, was knowledgeable, pleasant, and accommodating. My husband ordered the fried pickles for an app and they were delicious. Everyone was happy with their entrees, but I think mine was the best. I had the crab cake, shrimp, and scallop dish. I would definitely order this again. The Boston Cream Pie was different from grandma's but definitely didn't disappoint. Can't wait to dine here again."

Excellent - well portioned - not skimpy in the least. Service was great and attentive. The manager was interested in how our meal was going and was also just enthusiastic about what we were ordering and made sure everything was pleasant throughout our meal. A perfect experience with a very well trained staff! Keep up the outstanding work!! We'll be back."
