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, and calamari as well as custom cocktails provides a contemporary, comfortable experience. <br /> <br />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. Oyster lovers will find at least 8 different varieties daily. Nineteen signature cocktails, 37 wines by-the-glass, and 20 beers satisfy any thirst.<br /> <br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981. Come for the seafood and stay to shop. Our restaurant at the Derby Street Shoppes will get you hooked.

Dine in style at The Andover Inn's signature restaurant, Samuel's<br /> <br />Created with skill and passion, the menu features an exciting array of seafood, steaks, and signature items from our Executive Chef and his culinary team.<br /><br />We offer a wide variety of spirits, local brews on tap and an ample selection of domestic and international wines complimenting our newly created menu. The Bar offers a lighter fare menu of sandwiches and appetizers to share.<br /><br />Samuel's also features the Abbot Room, a private dining room that seats up to twelve guests, perfect for hosting a family party, business dinner, or gathering of friends.<br /><br />Our restaurant offers high ceilings together with warm mahogany and eclectic décor creating a slightly contemporary yet comfortable feeling.<br />

"Admittedly it was a Saturday night and "graduation time." But the restaurant should have known this and staffed itself with competent wait staff. The first waitress didn't have a clue how to serve: screwed up the drink order, was rushed and showed it, late getting even a glass of water to the table and when she did, she spilled it all over the place. After complaining to the management our second waitress was a vast improvement. The food itself was superb. But a restaurant that charges as much as the Palm (and they charge a great deal) should be better staffed."

Dining in Plymouth has taken a quantum leap forward with the opening of RooBar in Cordage Park. Hip and stylish, RooBar has integrated the elements of a vintage New England factory building with innovative, contemporary interior design. Featuring an open kitchen and a wood-fired oven, custom built of beach stone, the result is a handsome and spacious restaurant that offers fine dining in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Our new location in Braintree is making a splash. Designed to evoke memories of vintage seafood restaurants, the space offers as many seating options as fish in the sea. Most notable are the three bars – including an oyster bar and food bar along the exposed kitchen – to satisfy any thirst (or hunger) for fun. In warm weather, a glass wall slides back to a large patio. <br /><br />Our menu includes all the Legal Sea Foods classics, but also some specialties of the house that will reel you in. And our late night menu, available Monday through Saturday, begins two hours before close.<br /><br />We’re located right off of Route 93 in South Shore Place, across the street from South Shore Plaza.
