This restaurant is very good and prices are reasonable. I especially liked their fruit tea and their lunch specials are great. I would return again. Service is great.

We tried here even though the reviews were not stellar and we should have listened to the reviews. The service was terrible as per the reviews. The steak was not cooked to medium rare per the order. The only good thing was the catfish.

Went to a 4:30 pm dinner for 2 - recommended by locals. Pork chop was great, steak was stringy. Wait staff very friendly with a too-relaxed approach to service. Eventually got what we requested (drink refills, napkins, entree, check) but everything took a while.

My daughter, 4 years old, and I decided to eat at Legends Restaurant in Columbia, TN. We were seated and our waitress came to take our drink and food order. I asked her about a couple of the menu items and she could not answer because she did not eat there. Should have my my first clue to get up... More

The food was very good. A very good recommendation from a local tour guide. Reasonably priced local flavor. Highly recommend.

This place has been around town for years and it's the same story. The food is good, but the service is horrible. It's been that way as long as I can remember. So stop in for a meal just don't expect much from your server.

My family loves Legends, especially the Columbia location. The only negative is they don't have a salad bar like the other locations. Yet, the food and service are fantastic here. I recommend the chicken tenders or steak with spinach casserole. You can't go wrong with Legends!

There menu proudly proclaims still serving after 25 or so years. That may be true, the decor certain looks that old, dated, dark, almost fitting for a horror film. A bit pricey throughout the menu. Service was poor, very poor. Long wait for service, then waitress forgot about us for a longer time before finally bringing drinks. The staff needs... More

Not great, but okay. The servers needed more training. Not enough attention to things like needing more tea. The sweet potato was very good and the side salad was good. The chicken was dry. It was the second time I had eaten there in 6 weeks. I may return, but I will think twice.

We make it a habit to go to Legends a couple of Sunday's a month for he Prime Rib. It is absolutely delicious with their signature Johnny Fleeman's marinade. The sweet potatoes are awesome.
