Always Awesome!

Hub and I eat here at least 2-3 times a month. The service is always stellar and the food is always really, really good and satisfying!! My personal favorite is the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, I order it with their awesome alfredo sauce instead of the marinara, it is fantabulous!! You can also... read more

We had quit going here, because the last few times we were there, we had bad experiences. This time, it looks like they are under new management. The last two times we were there, we ordered drinks with Crown Royal, and although we consider this to be a bar staple, they were out. This time, they were prepared and had... More

This sports bar gives you the flexibility to watch whichever sport you like. There is a TV on each table. The food was good and the service was even better. After dinner, we moved to the bar to finish watching the Royals Vs. Cardinals game. The waiter even went as far to change one of the TV's at the bar,... More

Ordered the Southwest Chicken Salad and asked for light ranch. Received salad with the regular dressing already on the salad and light ranch on the side. I questioned the waiter and he offered to make a new salad with the light ranch dressing. He apologized and was willing to make it right. My friend had the seafood pasta Alfredo and... More

food is usually pretty good, but it's typical bar-type food - the place really is due for a remodel though - haven't done anything to it since opening - service is better in the "restaurant area" than the bar area

It just wasn't good, we had nachos had awful funky flavor, chicken strips were not fresh with too much breading. Won't be going back for food.

To start with, I love Legends fries. I'm sure they're just frozen waffle fries that are seasoned and thrown in the fryer, but for some reason they taste amazing. Going here and ordering something that doesn't come with fries would be a mistake, because that is always the best part of the meal. That said, everything else here was just... More

The food is good, but the place seems run down and not very well kept. They have a large selection of beer on tap, and offer local beers. Seem to get better service when you don't go to the bar. The service has gotten worse over time, but the food still seems to be good.

Ate here while staying at a nearby hotel, we were seated immediately and a server was at our table quickly. She had a great knowledge of the beer on tab and recommended a few local brews. I ordered food too, Fajitas, they came out quick, and were tasty. Great flavor and a nice quick to the salsa. I would eat... More
