Food was below average. Clam chowder was delicious as always but everything else we ordered was blah. Pizza was droopy, undercooked , topping would fall off each slice, bang bag cauliflower, which we’ve had before and were delicious, were very doughy and we didn’t finish after eating one a piece. Wedge salad is made with smoked salmon instead of bacon and was extremely salty. Shrimp were firm and tasty. Service was great.

Our food was good, haddock with rice pilaf and broccoli. Our server was quick to offer a substitute for the rice pilaf for one of us. He was unable to accomodate my friend's request for decaf tea and Stevia, but suggested a cafe Americano, which she loved. Our server, Chris, was excellent and just the right amount of "friendly."

Food was absolutely delicious, good portions, but if you get an appetizer be aware that splitting an entree might be a good idea if you don’t like taking food home. Service was awesome, had our 3-year old daughter with us and the waitress was fantastic with her all night…Will most certainly go back!!

Overall disappointing. Our entrees came out at different times, waiting almost 10 minutes for the last entree, which when delivered was burnt. I expect more from a $39 lobster roll. Staff was friendly, but could overcome the food issues, which they ended up comp-ing. Bright spot was the sushi, which was very good. I’ve been here before and last few visits seems like it is sliding in the wrong direction. Great spot so hope it improves.

The previous legal C bar menu (pre covid) felt relevant, delicious and more moderately priced. You had a unique items and stayed away from the legal seafood menu for the most part, but had some old school New England staples. Since coming back from Covid a lot of the unique menu items have been removed like the white clam pizza for example and the food seems highly mediocre for the price point, (which is honestly how I feel about Legal Seafood) My husband got seared scallops that should’ve been out of this world for the price he paid, we eat at excellent restaurants and don’t mind paying big money for excellent food- but if you’re going to pay what we paid and at a seafood restaurant they should’ve been perfectly on point. I had a Caesar salad and added salmon, Caesar salad was great, but the salmon was incredibly under seasoned and just nothing to brag about, and again - added $16 or so, and at a SEAFOOD restaurant. Go back to your original menu, you’re gonna lose our demographic 30-50’s with older kids and want a fun vibe. We don’t want Legal Seafood menu in an “updated setting” We paid a lot for that meal and likely won’t return anytime soon
:( We loved Legal C!!! Ps. This is also after about the last 4 times we’ve come, not just after one experience.

Made our reservation on Open Table the night before to celebrate our 41st Anniversary … our experience was made very special from the moment we walked in and we’re greeted by the Hostesses … to our server guiding us through the menu … to the delicious IPA Squirrel Beer on Tap … to the mouth watering Clam appetizers … to the 5 Star Seafood Crab Cake & Sashmi Entrees … to our gifted ice cream Dessert !!!

We recently relocated from the New York City Area and love to dine at great restaurants … We were very happy with our experience and will be proud to Showcase Legal Seafoods here in Boston to all of our out of state family and friends!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Legal C Bar...the only slight negative is that it seemed my fish was not as fresh as it could be...I am a commercial fisherman's granddaughter and have always eaten haddock a few times a week for life and when I get a slight what I call "nasally" sensation upon taking my first bites, I can tell the fish isn't the freshest it could be. I got that sensation when I had my Legal fav "Anna's" baked haddock. It was still very good but the fish could have been fresher. We had a sushi roll to begin our meal and it was great. My husband had the salmon with charred kale and farro and he thoroughly enjoyed his meal. We would definitely return to this location.

''














We had an early reservation (5:15) the only early time available. We were seated in the outside tent (enclosure), which we requested. Once seated, we there were strong winds whipping through that enclosure. It was too cold to be comfortable. We asked our waitress to lower the awning nearest our table which she nicely agreed to do. That made a positive difference for our comfort! It was a busy night and employees were working hard. Our waitress was accommodating and provided good service despite the busy restaurant. We each ordered some version of fish and were very satisfied with our (two adults and one late teen) meals.
