A pleasant spot to have a leisurely lunch. We had a delicious, unhurried lunch with enough food to take home for dinner!

The place looks great and ambience is great. Service is quite good. Their crab cakes are tasty and very well prepared. No lobster though. It would be great if they added more choices in the menu..

A spur of the moment decision to stop at Legal C Derby Street turned out to be exceptional! The Firecracker roll is not to be missed. Tom' s recommendations were spot on.

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, crab 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. Tried-and-true Legal favorites along with exclusive new offerings comprise the menu mix. Oyster lovers will find at least 8 different varieties daily. Nineteen signature cocktails, 37 wines by-the-glass, 20 beers and 16 super-premium Irish Whiskeys satisfy any thirst for fun. In warm weather, our patio is a popular lure. Come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our restaurant at the Derby Street Shoppes will get you hooked.
