The food is new american and thoughtfully prepared. The service is impeccable. The location is remote but not difficult;just ask anyone for directions. The pub area is great place to meet new friends. We met a couple celebrating their 58th wedding anniversary. If on the North Fork, Legends is a most for dining.

We can't speak to the Sports Bar; quickly looked in on the way inside, seemed well layed out. Please don't mistake this as a rowdy place - while in the quiet dining area you'd never know the bar is next door. This restaurant is amazing! They had something sorely lacking in too many places in their class and price range today: Imagination to go along with real talent. I wish I could find my after-trip notes on what we all ordered, but everyone loved every item, and we shared around the table (discreetly). It'd be a safe bet that whatever you order, something about the meal will surprise you in *how* it's made and that you haven't seen/tasted it that way before. The pork dish I had was cooked outdoors, and was wonderfully seasoned. I can't imagine eating here and being bored. You will not go away hungry, and you will try to find room for the desserts. The waitstaff seemed really young (okay, it was Summer) but could teach many of the servers you'll meet how to do their jobs and do them well.
It isn't a large dining area, and after a long day on a winery tour we had to have lucked out when we called for reservations. The room was filled by the time we left. This is worth the trip, and gives you real value for your money, unlike some in the same price range.

There's a lot I like here. The eclectic menu is one, because with a larger party (or finnicky teens), everyone can find something. Tried alligator for the first time here (does taste like chicken). I love the stuffed shrimp. Also, I like how you can do the more quiet upscale meal, or come right off the boat and head to the low-key bar with table service as well. Nice selection of tap beers. Wish it weren't out in the boonies, yet that also contributes to it's appeal. We love Legends!

You cant go wrong here! The food was excellent, and the service was first rate. The staff were meticulously dressed in all white shirts and black pants. They were all friendly, professional yet low key. The food was so good. You have to drive a bit to get to it, since its all the way near the water, but its worth the drive.
You have a choose of dining experiences. You can go to the right side of the restaurant where theres the bar and seating, which looked lively but manageable. Or you could go to the left where there is a more quieter experience. We opted for quiet, and it was very pleasurable. The prices were reasonable, i would go back in a second.
