Legal C Bar - Hingham Ratings and Reviews
We eat here a lot and the food is always very good. The Legal Seafood franchise may have the best tasting burger of all restaurants suuprisingly. We had a new waitress on 11/11/17 we have never seen before, Sarah, who was very efficient, friendly and curtious and made the dining experience better than usual.
A friend was visiting from Ohio and said she was craving seafood. Legal C was my first choice in that area of town. She was thrilled and so was I. I've been to Legal C a dozen times at least. Everything is consistent, from menu to service to quality and ambiance. I give it a 10 Thumbs Up!
Enjoyed most aspects of the Legal C Bar in Hingham. Food was good, and service was very good. Only major issue was the noise. We sat in a booth (that was good), but the high-top tables that were adjacent had larger parties of 5 or 6 people, and they were very noisy. The high-tops do not provide any shield from the shrill laughter or those yelling across the table to others.
Had difficulty having conversation.
Dined there many times, always a great meal. This time the service ruined the meal.
Daughter ordered an adult cheeseburger and was served a kids hamburger. After waiting 15 minutes the chef delivered the correct burger. Only once did our server come to apologize.
We all finished our meal before the burger came. Kind of killed our family dinner on a Saturday
Legal Seafood has great options at every location. The Derby Street C Bar is one of the best options at this mall. The waiters are really knowledgeable and the food excellent. What's great about the franchise is that the menu changes frequently enough that it's easy to find something new to try.
There were 6 of us. All of us had different food requirements. The waitstaff was most helpful and patient--very friendly. Also, the manager came over several times to make sure everything was ok. So, between attentive staff, amazing food and wonderful ambience, we would not hesitate to go back there again, even tho it is not close to our home.
Legal C is a great place to dine almost any night of the week. Food is very good and the service is attentive as well. The servers are always willing to accommodate any special requests or needs you might have. If you go there during the week or before 6:30. it's more likely to be quieter. Saturday nights after 6:30 will give you a noisier crowd, often making it difficult to carry on a conversation. You might want to ask for a booth away from the bar.
The food is consistently good, even the gluten free rolls & the waitress we had was great. Her name was Victoria.
We love the restaurant but we love it more because of it's gluten free kitchen.
I have celiac disease & my restaurants are limited. It's nice to relax,enjoy the food, drinks & friends & be assured that I'm not going to "pay for it" later in the bathroom all night( I know TMI) but it's my honest response.
We've been to Legal C for lunch and drinks before, but not for dinner. Well, that will change! The food was awesome, served quickly and the wait staff was very attentive, without being obnoxious. We had an early reservation (5:00 pm), so it was quiet enough for very easy conversation but, I assume, later it would be louder. Anyway, it was great and we will be back!
Another great meal at this location. I had Caribbean style grouper which was very good. Friend had fish and chips also deemed very good. Appetizer of calamari was flavorful and tender, only wish there were more tentacles in the calamari. All in all a good experience.
Food was good, very good flavor but the amount of fish- grouper in my tacos was very skimpy!! If Roger was served my portion of fish he would have sent it back to kitchen in a heartbeat. I mentioned it to our waitress and she said she'd pass my comment along to the chef.
From the start the staff was warm and welcoming. Our server Heather was fantastic and answered all of my wine questions. She was outstanding and a huge reason to go back. Also a big thank you the the Chef, Chris who accommodated my food request. The augratin potatoes are fantastic and should be added to the menu. Thanks again for an outstanding time.
We eat at Legal C at Derby Street a lot as well as stopping in for drinks. Very good bar with friendly bartenders. The food here always is from good to excellent depnding on what you have. Great for seafood, but the steak items and hamburger are very good.
Somewhat underwhelmed with our dining experience this time around. Tuna was nothing to write home about.. not very inventive menu.
Raw bar had shell that had to be picked out.. no attention to detail there.
Desserts somewhat dry. Won't be back anytime soon and will definitely modify expectations if we do.
We took our daughter and granddaughter to legal . 2 had Anna's. Cod and the 2 others had Salmon. Everything was delicious and we all scraped our plates. My husband and I come here quite a lot and we have never been disappointed!
We went early on Saturday evening. Happy to see Sockeye salmon. Came with sauteed onions, peppers, chick peas and eggplant. Do not like when food piled on top of each other. Salmon was good, but would have been better with vegetables to the side and polenta to the side (fish was on top of it). We like Legal for the choices of fish but lately it does feel like a chain presentation.
Hostess friendly and seated right away. However usually seated at a booth or table in that area. This time we were seated at a table in bar area. We stayed since it was early and quiet there.
