The tables were spaced well in regard of covid-19. The decor was pleasing and the service was personal and professional. My wife and I had seafood meals and both were delicious and satisfying. Too bad Legends is so far from our home in western Suffolk!

Went with my boyfriend on Labor Day weekend. The place was empty when we arrived. Lots of staff present getting ready for the mid day and evening rush. My boyfriend got the Lobster and Shrimp salad and thought it was delicious. I got the Grilled...Chicken Avocado sandwich... except I realized after my first bite that it was the wrong sandwich. It was some kind of fish sandwich. I had a very hard time tracking down the waitress or any waitress for that matter. I eventually asked a bus boy to find her. I told my boyfriend to continue eating as we were both starving. The waitress was apologetic. My chicken sandwich came out eventually and it was honestly ok. Wasn’t too much flavor from the blue cheese and dressing that was on it. As a thank you and also apology for the mix up the waitress did comp us a free beer. Other than the sandwich mix up I would give it a second try.More

No matter the weather, or if you are a couple or family Legends is a welcoming spot for all! The New Orleans baked clams took me back to Bourbon St and included a nice warning from our server that they might be too spicy! They...weren’t for us! We lunch there whenever we are out that way. The cleanliness and friendliness just go hand in hand in this comfortable spot. We truly enjoy a Bloody Mary and the number of lunch choices: you can’t go wrong. Staff is vigilant in sanitizing and moving bar partitions to ensure patrons safety. Bathrooms shine, you know they are being monitored. There are many lunch opportunities from surf to turf and noticed some vegan offerings. This is a great Sunday afternoon venue, although I hate sharing that information. Now we will have to call earlier to beat the rush.More

This restaurant provides friends and families with outside seating with a nice breeze where they can enjoy delicious well-prepared meals. They have weekly specials that are just amazing. Duck breast, which is a Long Island specialty, a Tuscan seafood stew( Cacciucco), amazing specialty sandwiches and...fried calamari that was light and airy. The service is friendly and accommodating. Reservations are recommended for outside dining. It’s a place that gives you fine dining, a relaxing atmosphere and a safe outdoor experience.More

Heading back from the North Shore Vineyards we wanted a nice quaint restaurant to have dinner for our anniversary. Legends did not disappoint. The food was amazing and our waitress Yasmine was awesome. We will definitely be going back soon!

Stopped here before visiting friends in Southold. Had a nice table outside. Sanitizing station set up before we sat down. Started with a Tito’s Bloody Mary. The Buratta appy with watermelon and pineapple and balsamic glaze was outstanding. Salmon sandwich was delicious. Our waitress Julia...was friendly and helpful. Took a walk across the street after lunch to the marina and beautiful view Lovely experience.More

We have been coming here for years and everything is good. Burgers and Steaks are what you expect, but all of the other stuff is great too. I like the sashimi and the salads for a change of pace. Personally I like sitting in the...bar, but the dining room is nice too. Good beer selection that rotates.More

We make sure we go to Legends every year for restaurant week (we also go many other times). The food, as always, is spectacular but the presentation is out of this world. I feel like I’m in the finest restaurant in NYC. Legends is truly...a remarkable place to go to eat.More

Never again Let me start by saying we have been coming to Legends for over 10 years. Not just busy season, slow season...January February March , before and after the renovation that kept it closed for months, by car and by boat. We wouldn’t keep...coming back if we were unhappy. Well that changed this week. We went in on a slow winter Tuesday night. My daughter has celiac disease , which means she can not consume gluten. On the Legends menu there are things labeled gluten free and things that can be modified to be gluten free. She ordered a sandwich that with out the bun was gluten free, it came with fries that she could not eat so the server suggested a salad. Before the meals came out the server came over to advise my daughter that the salad would be a $4.50 up charge. We asked if there were any other gluten free options for her and her server said all of them were an up charge. We said forget the side. We asked to speak to the manager. She came over with an attitude from the get go. My daughter explained her issue, that she felt that the restaurant was not accommodating to her medically necessary dietary restrictions as they would not let her substitute a side that she could actually eat. The manager said they were very accommodating and she would even box up the fries so my daughter could give them to someone who could eat them. YES SHE SAID THAT. We explained that if the restaurant offers this specifically as something that can be made gluten free on request it should be a sandwich and a side that are gluten free. The manager said there are no substitutions. Again if you are offering to make something gluten free it is not a substitution, it is a gluten free meal as you state on your menu. The manager then said she would mention it to the owners to see if they thought it was something to look into. Needless to say we will not be returning to a restaurant whose management treated us so poorly, and would not uphold the wording on the menu by modifying a meal to make it gluten free.More
