I use their carryout often. Always friendly and prompt. Food is quite good. When dining in the service can be quite slow. Recommend their ribs and sandwiches. The seafood not so much.

Our group of 14 invaded this place on a Saturday night at 6:45 p.m. They had a nice long table put together for us, with the World Series game going on all 15 TVs. Fortunately the sound was turned down so we could hear each other talk. Very good. Our server was delightful. Very pleasant and efficient. The menu was... More

Tried Legends for the first time and wasn't disappointed. Asked to be outside which wasn't a problem and since it was a bit breezy we had the place to ourselves. Each of us had a burger and they were very tasty. Ordered medium and they were pretty close. Nice and juicy. Great sports bar.

Good tasting burgers, onion rings, salads and other menu items are what's to be expected at Legends ... and there is quite a variety of selections available on their menu. Legends is a fairly typical sports bar and can be especially fun is the area's favorite game is being shown on one of the many TVs surrounding the restaurant. The... More

Was somewhat reluctant to try this place based on other reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. Staff we encountered were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our grandkids. We both had the quesedillas (chicken and steak) and thought they were very good. Would definitely go back based on this experience.

My wife and I decided to eat at Legends when we came back for a visit. The dining room was quite full so we decided to sit in the bar area. We had a nice server who explained the specials etc. I ordered the Club sandwich (which was what I ordered when we came some years ago). My wife ordered... More

I am amazed how this restaurant stays in business. Have gone there many times over the years and keep hoping for improvement.. THe only reason I continue to go is because they have a nice patio overlooking the man-made lake. Last time I went, we requested an umbrella to shade the very hot sun,, there were three umbrellas being used... More

We arrived on a Friday night around 5:30 for a celebration. We were greeted with several young ladies holding beers standing around their friend who was sick outside. I wanted to walk back to my car and find somewhere else to eat. Luckily, the staffed saw my concern when we came in and put us in the back (away from... More

Don't waste your time eating here. We had a problem and manager was rude. Our food was mostly wrong. I ordered burger with cheddar but got American as did most at our table. Steaks were,all way overcooked and waiter just said sorry. We will never eat here again.

Thank MOAngusman
