Great food, we sat outside ..... Windy and table was a little wobbly . Waitress fixed the table right away, but the wind made it annoying ( not their fault ) should have sat inside or not on the outside perimeter of the outdoor seating. Can't beat the seafood !!

This bustling Saturday night, our reservation was honored very close to the requested time, and service was terrific. Our drinks and food were served promptly but we were never rushed. My everything tuna was cooked through just as requested, but it remained flavorful and moist. My husband loved his pasta with clans, as usual. By fall shrimp are always a highlight. All in all a great night.

This was my first experience at a Legal C Bar and even though it seems to have a nearly identical menu as their parent company - Legal Seafoods, the quality of food, service, and ambience was lacking from my prior exceptional experiences. To start when we arrived and Informed the hostess that I had reservation with Open Table, I was given a pager even though there were several empty tables in view. Normally I feel as though I receive special treatment when I use Open Table, which seemed to be lacking somewhat this time around, though we did receive our table close to our reservation time. Next thing I noticed was that the atmosphere and ambiance was more stark and industrial and not as warm, cozy, and welcoming as my prior experiences. After we were seated and waitress came to the table, I kinda felt like I was at the Road Kill Cafe or Coyote Ugly as she was standoffish and inattentive at best. Yes my daughter was a little difficult but normally the wait staff will try to win her over versus stooping to her level. And last but least, the food was only mediocre at best, not exceptional as I expected from past experiences. However, the price was exceptional and not mediocre, so our overall experience at Legal C Bar was actually disappointing.

My friend and I had a wonderful dining experience. The food was delicious! I ordered a red snapper on special. I hope this finds its way on the regular menu. Our server was Joe. He was very professional and attentive.

Beyond the food and ambiance the best thing about our visit to Legal C in Lynnfield was our server Meredith. She was outstanding. She was the best server hands down that I have had anywhere. We will definitely return and ask for Meredith.

The service was terrible even though the restaurant was busy but nothing unnamable. Our waiter never came back to refill our water glasses, or during our dinner. Didn't tell us if any specials, offered any suggestions. He was disengaged. We ordered cocktails, appetizers and dinner so our bill wasn't going to be cheap. I will go back but not straight away. Reservations worked out perfectly well. Thank you.

Our waiter was great, food was good, however the hostess was really off this time around. I made a reservation in advance (spoke on the phone with the restaurant and specified that this is a SURPRISE) for my husband's birthday to surprise him with our friends coming to say HB to him (he hasn't seen them in a while). First, the surprise was ruined by the hostess confirming right in front of him the amount of people coming and asking if she understands correctly that this is a birthday celebration. Then I asked to change our table (which was right by the bar and it was noisy) and asked her to inform our guests when they get there. Not only did she not inform our guests, but she also sat them at the wrong table and made them wait for US to come. Good thing my friend called me and I came to get her. Other than that, this was an ok experience. We had an awesome waiter!

I purchased the cauliflower appetizer and the price on the menu was $6.95. When I received the bill, I was charges $7.50. I did not want to may a scene at the table because I was with friends. But, if you add $.50 to everyone's bills, it adds up. I did not expect this at Legal. But, I guess you never know.
Not worth the price
Paid $35 each for two butterflied filet mignions . Went there a previous time and got the creekstone steak and it was delicious and a decent portion. This time they were over cooked and looked tiny. Definitely not worth the $90 bucks spent on dinner that evening for two. Service was okay, nothing special. I told the waitress the steak looked tiny and she just looked and walked away. I had replaced spinach for a side salad, I was told it was $1.95 extra, which I was okay with, but they charged me $7.95 and I had to catch it to have it removed. Not a great experience.

Had a business lunch - important meeting. They confirmed the reservation prior, asked me my seat preference/table type/location of table. Then they followed through. Service recognized the private chatter and was respectful and "There" with out once interrupting! Food was perfect. Hats off to the management and staff.

The food was very good. We were celebrating a birthday and it was perfect for the occasion. They were able to accommodate gluten allergy and special request for a lobster pie that was no on the menu. Hours are flexible and close to home.
