A word from Legal C Bar - Dedham
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.

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 within the new Legacy Place lifestyle center will get you hooked.

  • "I've been to the Dedham Legal C Bar a number of times for lunch and dinner. The food is consistently pretty good, but a bit pricy for what it is. I have been alone and in a party of 2, 3, 4, and 8. The amount of attention received seems to depend on the size of the party. When you are part of a large party ordering bottles of wine, the weight staff and managers are very attentive. It seems to me, that should be the case even if you are dining alone. My experience this time was with one other person and the service was very slow. It took 1.5 hours to have a "quick" lunch of salad, an appetizer and ice water--disappointing when you are on your lunch hour."

  • "Love Legals but this location gives bad service consistently. IF you have a kid - they always try to seat you near the kitchen which is loud, dingy, dark and smells bad. Initial drink order took 20minutes, no rolls or activity while waiting. Raw platter came eventually, but we barely finished it and then entrees arrived. Not enough space on the table. Then second drink order took another 20 minutes - table not cleared, entrees were now getting cold. Dessert was delivered 20 min late with the bill - at which time we had a to leave - another 10 min to get that off the bill. Very frustrating. Manager was walking around and helping - very nice guy! Looks like they may just need more people or better training."

  • "I frequent Legal Seafoods quite a bit, but this is the first time I've been to Legal C Bar. I loved it! The menu had all of the great favorites from Legal Seafoods with some added dishes that looked great. The atmosphere was really upbeat and trendy. Our waiter was superb. My oldest son had the paella and my younger son has the lobster roll. Both were excellent. We also had oysters which true to form for LS were beyond perfection. We were visiting Dedham from New Jersey for a college visit and can't wait to go back. I hope the LS chain decides to bring the Legal C Bar to New Jersey!"

  • "The food and drinks were excellent. I requested a specific server in my reservation and the hostess tried to seat me in a completely different section. They had to be corrected. The good was outstanding. We will be back."

  • "Legal Seafood has always been one of my favorites! The C-bar adds a new look to one of my favorite restaurants. The food is great and their constancy is outstanding. I know of no other restaraunt chain where you can always get the same great meal, at all locations. I enjoyed the Legal sangria, which was fantastic. We shared the Edamame to start. They were cooked perfectly, with just the right amount of sea salt. My girlfriend enjoyed here favorite fish tacos, and I had my favorite, the classic Boston baked schrod. The fish was cooked just right, flakey, not over cooked with brown rice, cooked perfectly! Legal never let's me down!"

  • "My fiance and I went to dinner for her birthday on Friday night. We had made a reservation because we knew this restaurant would be busy. Once we were sat we were promptly greeted by our great server, Liz! We are seafood lovers and this restaurant met all of our needs! We wanted to order oysters and my fiance is very picky about the type she likes, Liz was very informative and knowledgeable about which oysters my fiance would enjoy and she loved them! Instead of having dinner we decided to stick with the appetizers and drinks, which were all delicious! We will definitely be back to the C Bar very soon!"

  • "Great friendly professional down to earth service, consistently great food, .....constructive criticism: consider lowering prices a little including liquor, in far back tables put a heavy curtain over back kitchen supply frosted glass window to douse the bright neon kitchen light which kills the nice ambience of that cozy area"

  • "My friend ordered a ceasar salad that arrived completely bone dry and wasn't even tossed in ceasar dressing prior to being brought out to the table. I ordered the lobster roll and it had too much going on and covered the taste of the lobster. Not Impressed. Asked about Hennessey and it was like 22 bucks a shot! I wont be going back."

  • "More for younger people. Not like a regular Legal Seafood. The food and service were exceptional but I wouldn't go back there."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The restaurant was quite chilly on a very cold night. Service was pleasant, food was good but not always what we ordered. Soup was cold and had to be sent back to warm, salads were dressed incorrectly, wrong orders came to our table. Legal is always consistent in the quality of the fish but at this point for the price, quite ordinary. Service was very pleasant and always changed whatever came incorrectly."

  • "Legal C Bar is a casual take on Legal Sea Food, with a shorter menu and more of a bar-centered atmosphere. It's not a huge place, so make reservations on a weekend evening. The service was attentive and friendly, offering extra rolls and serving our drinks promptly. They got our order correct which is always appreciated. The chowder was very tasty, not too thick or thin with plenty of fish (clam or fish). I also had the baked scrod with spinach and brown rice. The serving size was generous and everything was cooked exactly as I would like it. And brown rice isn't easy to do right in bulk. The pricing also wasn't too expensive. I'd come here any time I wanted quality seafood."

  • "If you are looking for seafood in the Boston area you can't go wrong with any of the Legal restaurants. Legal C Bar at Legacy Place has become our favorite. Easy to drop in for just a bowl of chowder or a plate of oysters. The "C Bar" menu is much simpler than many of the other Legal restaurants but it also seems to be less expensive. Always have had good service and a relatively relaxing meal. Very few families with young kids, especially at night."

  • "The food was very good. It was very nice of the chef to make me a dish that was previously on the menu, but not on the menu the night we went. The dessert was excellent. We had something that was like boston cream pie."

  • "there is nothing special about the food here, and often it's just downright bad. The hoisin salmon over pad thai was a disgustingly sweet dish that tasted neither like salmon, nor pad thai. Revolting."

  • "My wife and I had a decent time at Legals. The food portions could have been a little bigger and less whiskey in the Irish coffee. The biggest high light was the clam chowder which is the best I've had. I recommend this place for a casual date but it's nothing too special."
