Legal C Bar - Lynnfield Ratings and Reviews

Service was painfully slow. Drinks (water and 2 sangrias) took 20 minutes to arrive. Our server didn't apprise us that a menu selection wasn't available until 40 minutes after we ordered. By that time the other dinners were ready. We were comped for this. The food was delicious.

We've been regularly dining here since it opened having been longtime diners at other Legal Seafood locations.
We've seen a decline at this location - not in the quality of the food overall - always fresh - but in service and follow up and sometimes in consistency of the food.
This is the 2nd time our drinks, which cost about $13/ea weren't filled as much as they should have been.
The Thai chicken wings, for whatever reason, taste different each time now.
The haddock special, while flavorful and fresh, was overcooked.
Servers are always courteous, but we've noticed that many of them seem to fraternize with patrons at the bar - not the ones they are serving - but others.
I watched one server apply lip gloss leaning against the register looking out onto the restaurant floor, then serve food without cleaning her hands.
On a separate note, we had spoken to a manager recently re our take out order on 3 separate occasions missing the lemon caper sauce on a dish.
He was very nice and insisted on taking our contact info for corporate to mail us a gift card or something.
It wasn't necessary, but the gesture was appreciated.
It never came.
We're looking forward to dining at the newly renovated Legal Seafood at the North Shore Mall where we've never been disappointed going on 25 years.

Our favorite Legals to visit! Great menu, chef, managers and staff. The bartenders work great together anticipating everyone's needs, they seem to know all the regular guests and our experience with Ryan was flawless. I think he is one of the best bartender we've had.

Tables are uninviting and set up in the middle of traffic. Acoustics are terrible and if noise is a bother, skip this place. Portions are small and prices very high for what you receive. I have eaten there two or three times and each time I hope for a change away from these detractions and leave disappointed again. I guess I am not a Legal fan

Legal C Bar is our go-to date night spot. I never cook fish or seafood at home, so it's our place to have it! Our waitress was attentive and very sweet, our meals were delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for dinner and drinks!

Always loved Legal Sea foods and Legal C Bar. Recently they changed their French fries to a batter coated potato. Legals have always had the best and freshest seafood, but I'm disappointed they changed the fries. They are the same fries you can buy in the frozen food section of the supermarket.

This visit everything was good.
Server could have been more attentive, but overall was good.
If you are going to sit outside make sure you sit in the section with tables under the roof. The tables on the side of the building were very windy.
My son and husband split the fisherman's platter and they were nice to put it on 2 plates. Got my favorite, Soy glazed Salmon, but was a tad bit disappointed this time, the noodles we a bit sticky and it seemed to lake a bit of the "sauce" on it. My daughter always gets the steak tips and they were cooked perfectly.

The food at Legal C is delicious and healthy. I always get the Jasmine Special, and the broccoli is always cooked to perfection. The shrimp are large and the cheese sauce enhances the flavor of the dish. I often get the meal without the jasmine to save on starch. Service was immediate and attentive. It is the place to be at Market Street Lynnfield. Lively and good for all ages, even mine, 65.

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.
