A word from Legal C Bar - Lynnfield
From Legal Sea Foods, Legal C Bar emerges - a focused yet full-flavored social urban venue, casual in style.

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. Tried-and-true Legal favorites along with exclusive offerings, including sushi and pizza, comprise the menu mix. Oyster lovers will find at least 8 different varieties daily.

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), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Diner Reviews
  • "Food and service was great but the it is too noisy for us to have a conversation."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We ask for a table away from the door. Where are we seated?... next to the door. The hostess staff are snippy and rude, When they move you to a table away from the door, they tell you how much of a favor they are doing for you. Everything else is great though - food, drinks, waiters. Dinner in the bar is great and is another good reason to bypass the hostess station."

  • "8:35 - Hey, how about going out for a quick dinner on a rainy night, I said to my wife. Let's head over to Legal C and see what's going on. Not much traffic, a dark rainy night driving there. Park the car, head in and it is jammed. They seated us right on time. The bar was lively, energetic but not so loud you couldn't easily converse at the table. A quick (1hr dinner) of fried clams, tuna sashimi, and chowder. Always great - food and service. Since Market Street opened this is a placei can bring employees, clients, and/or my wife and have a meal that is appreciated by all. Keep it up!"

  • "Came here for my mom's birthday. the reception host was very nice and asked about the occasion when he saw the birthday cards in our hands, offered to bring over a piece of cake, which was a nice touch. All parties said their food was excellent, certainly looked good. I do not like seafood so ordered the steak tips which were very tender, juicy and flavorful, which was surprising for a place that specializes in seafood."

  • "C Bar is truly a class act. The hostess was warm and hospitable. Our server, Tom, was very attentive and knowledgeable. He made great suggestions, and the food was creative and delicious. We had a birthday in our party and both managers Alex and Connor visited us to offer good wishes and to ensure our evening was wonderful. It was. We will be back-often."

  • "Food,service and people were great! I have been to other Legals for lunch and dinner many times. Great location, plenty of parking. The "C" bar is fun,energetic and busy. We loved our server Danielle and she was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was served promptly and was hot, but we were not rushed. Great wine list by the glass and bottle. We were seated right away, the front people were friendly and smiling. You could tell everyone was happy to be at the "C". We will go back, bring friends and tell our friends."

  • "This was our third time there and the seafood has always been fresh. The acoustics make it a bit noisy but that seems to be how some restaurants like it. Wouldn't think twice about bringing little kids, whatever they do would just blend in. Can't wait to go back when the weather gets nicer to shop the stores then dine again at legal's.."

  • "This place is very very loud. Prices are fair and food is very good. I would recommend the spinach and feta appetizer it was unreal. I had a reservation for 815pm and showed up around 745pm, we were not seated until 813pm so they must mean business when it comes to reservations. The waitress was nice and overall it was a good place but just too loud for my liking."

  • "Our dinner was very good...prepared well and interesting, healthy side options. This restaurant is a staple on our Go To restaurant list. The fish is high quality and prepared just right We wish the restaurant wasn't so noisy. The bar is big and centrally located so it's hard to find a table that is moderately quiet."

  • "We had calamari that was tasty and tender. Mussels were overpowering with curry. Fish tacos were decent but should use pico di gailo insteded of shredded cabbage. Ordered Deadrider cocktail which was weak and sugary. Tuna maki was just a big ball of rice and old tuna."

  • "This is just another line in the Legal Seafood juggernaut, But like Legal the seafood is fresh, the service is excellent and you can't beat the sangria! Overall a great place for lunch/dinner in the new MarketPlace mall."

  • "The atmosphere is a lot more energetic than the Legal Seafood Restaurant. It has a very large bar with large screen TV's. There is a very large selection of beer, wines & cocktails. The food menu has a nice selection of seafood as well as a chicken and beef dish. The grilled shrimp was excellent as was the baked scrod. The staff was attentive and our waitress was wonderful. Great service!"

  • "Kim was our waitress; she provided excellent service. The food was wonderful. My steak was cooked perfectly as was the spinach and shrimp. I don't even know how they made the mashed potatoes so fluffy! My husband had the the tuna and he was equally impressed. On a Friday night it was pretty loud. It was difficult to converse at times but it felt energetic. This was my second time visiting this restaurant. The first time I went during the lunch hour and had an outstanding Cubana sandwich. Delicious. This has quickly become a favorite restaurant. The service is awesome and the food is wonderful. I highly recommend visiting. You won't be sorry."

  • "As a fussy seafood diner, I thought Legal C Bar was great. Chowder to start - hit the spot! We will definitely go again and would recommend it to friends."

  • "Arrived 30 mins early, still waited until our reservation time to sit, fair enough! Waitress would come and go very quickly... if you were not ready you waited until she circled back, sometimes a while. Rarely offered a refill of our drinks, even when glass was sitting there empty."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Legal C is a 3 star restaurant in every sense. Nothing was bad per se but yet nothing was memorable either, from the drinks to the food to the service everything was completely average. Unfortunately the price is a bit higher than I can justify for an average meal."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Our dinner was enjoyable. Food is what you expect from any Legals location. The most outstanding part of over experience was the service we received. We were seated promptly with our reservation. Drinks were served timely as was food. We were not rushed on a busy Friday evening. Our waitress was exceptional!"
