Description: 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.

“Legal and funky”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This Legal is less formal than their usual venues, but we found the same high quality seafood and great service here. A wide open space with cement floor and the bar dominating, but attractive in its own way. Music is loud, and bordering on too loud for us, so don't come here if you're looking for conversation over a quiet meal. But the menu and food are definitely up to Legal's usual very high standard.

“Great food as always”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

We ate there almost everyday when i visited my buddy. We obviously love seafood, but Legal is awesome. When to the first one when we were in Cambridge, then next to the Boston Aquarium. So when they moved here, we checked this one.
Lobster rolls are just awesome, waiters are nice (some more than others), lay-out is great, large, comfortable, reasonnably noisy to have an ambiance but also to allow discussions. And finally james McQuillan, the General Manager, is just great. He spotted us as we came a couple of times in a row and came discuss with us, helped us and made our experience worth a 5 stars here! Keep on the great service!

“Never Disapoints”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Despite it being a "chain restaurant", Legal Sea Foods is one of the best places to get fresh, high-quality, prepared-with-care fish and seafood. I've been to C Bar in Dedham, and was thrilled when they opened in Hingham.

I've been here probably about 5 or 6 times since it opened and have been happy every time. The fish is always prepared to perfection, the oysters are fresh, and the service is fantastic. More than once, we've been given a complimentary appetizer to sample.

I personally have a food allergy that they always can accommodate and handle seriously. One of our first visits, the manager, Josh, came over and chatted with us for a few minutes. He remembers us by name every time we've come back.

The atmosphere is hip and trendy. Not as spectacular as Dedham, but they did a good job with the space given. It can get a little loud, but that comes with the less stuffy environment.
