Had the French Beef dip. The sandwich was mediocre. Great waffle fries! Half price Iowa made beers before 6 on Wednesday night. Still $3 which makes the regular price seem pretty expensive to me..... Service was fast and staff friendly. Lot of TV'S to see sporting events. Not a bad place, but better value /quality combinations out there in this... More

We stayed at the Stoney Creek Hotel which was right across the way for this restaurant. We went there 3 days in a row it was such a good place to have drinks and food. The 1st day i had a cajun burger and it was huge, good and they cooked it perfectly. I hate when restaurants can't even cook... More

Started with the onion rings. Thin, crispy and served with a chipotle ranch sauce. Tasty. Followed by the chicken quesadilla and the chicken bacon wrap. Both were good.

The food was good and everything g came out right. The problem you will run into here is if you are there for lunch, you will run out of time. We went there twice and both times we were late getting back. It wasn't crowded but it took too long both times. If time isn't an issue, it's worth stopping... More

The salesman that I spent the day with today recommended this restaurant. When I walked in it seem like a standard bar. They had something on the daily menu called buffalo cheese balls. I thought that sounded really tasty so I ordered it. As it turns out it was simply cheese deep-fried with some Buffalo sauce over top not that... More

I feel like I have given a lot of five star reviews lately but bear with me. Legends is one of my favorite sports bars. I like their food, reasonable prices and always a lot of tvs. I have been I think to five different locations and pretty consistent service throughout. This particular visit I ordered the steak and was... More

The food was DELICIOUS and our family enjoyed the wine list, more than your average Grill establishment.

Wednesday is half-price night for Iowa beers, and appetizers are half-price til 6:00 p.m. Varied menu include salads, sandwiches and full meals. Food was served quickly (we had not even finished our appetizers yet). We had nachos (half order), Buffalo quesadilla and tenderloin which was served with waffle fries. All were delicious. Legends was recommended by a friend, and she... More
