Average Typical Bar-Type Food Joint

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

Had Pacific Seafood Alfredo. Sauce tasted canned (from a jar). It did have seafood and tomatoes in the pasta and sauce but the ingredients were not cooked together. The seafood tasted like it was boiled in a pot and thrown in the pasta and covered with jar sauce... Then they turned off the game I was watching to put the... More

Typical food/pub setting. The food was decent and prices reasonable. We just had a hard time getting past the sticky table (and the others appeared to be the same) that you couldn't really rest your arm on. They have small TV's on every table. I suppose if you had small children with you they'd love it. Anyway, we shut ours... More

Food and drinks were good, felt a little neglected at times because of the locals and the staff seemed occupied with each other.

Dinner with a group of six. Got seated and served right away. Neat little "plate of beers" thing that allows you to sample four or five beers. Food was good but nothing spectacular. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive.
