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

Attended a conference at a nearby hotel recently and had several meals at this Legends location. The food was excellent. Try the Turkey burger or the Turkey-bacon wrap, both are excellent! The service was fast and friendly and the setting was comfortable and clean with multiple TV screens for viewing. Highly recommend.

My family loves Legends when we have sporting events to watch during lunch or dinner. There are more than enough TVs in the bar and on the tables to see keep up on our events and no one has better seasoned waffle fries! The appetizers and burgers are delicious but the highlight of every meal is the waffle fries with... More

Always a good back up if you can't decide where to go. Great burgers and fries. We love the patio in the summer time. The service has always been great when we've gone.
