  • "The food, service, and atmosphere can't be beat Great place to go to dine or just for music and drinks"

  • "Walkers Bluff is an enjoyable place for an up-scale evening out. A place where you can have a full course relaxing meal, drinks, and a great time. Walkers Bluff itself is stately, with beautiful scenic views all around, along with other attractive venues on the grounds (Seasonal Decorations added a nice warm touch). Our dinners are consistently cooked to our liking, the wines are all so tasty, and the deserts (which you must have) are all so rich and full of flavor. Brandon is our server and he is, as always, a very attentive friendly young man. The manager takes time to ensure her patrons have a pleasurable dining experience. Legends at Walker's Bluff is a place you want to visit and you will surely return."

  • "The waiter acted like he didn't know what he was doing. He was late getting our food and drinks. I had to loan him a pen to take our dessert order. We were at our table for 2 1/2 hours! Everyone else had come and gone! I took my wife and sister in law, and they were very disappointed in the service. Everything else was great!"

  • "We try to eat at Legends - but every time we take either a work group or friends, we never leave saying " great meal for the price". We have no problem spending the money, but we classify Legends in the same group as Tom's or Mary's. Which is where the problem lies. The food is always just "ok". Saturday evening my waiter convinced me my Ribeye steak was the Kobe steak I ordered - it wasn't. And the mashed potatoes were so salty, they were not eaten. We graciously ate our meal, as we had guest with us who had never been there.It is such a bummer the food continues to be not very good. But it will not stop us from visiting the Tasting Room and the concerts and family activities - just not Legends."

  • "We had a terrific time. They provided great service and the food was so good. One of the best Fillet Mignon Steaks that I have ever had.They were very friendly and timely between courses."

  • "Reservations made. Seated promptly. Waited an hour to receive a main course. One was cooked very well done (medium rare requested) and was not tasty. Other entrees just OK. Ordered coffee and desert. Waited 15 minutes for coffee. Cold. Waited another 30 minutes for dessert. Way too large. The service was ghastly. The food was mediocre. The prices were sky-high. Entree servings not up to the price. No bread. Lunch should not take over 2 hours for an entree and dessert. Didn't visit last year. Won't visit again. This place has declined beyond recognition and it was NEVER up to the rave reviews some have given it. Anyone who ever rated this restaurant over 3 stars does not know much about food. And it's gone downhill from there."

  • "We enjoyed an excellent dinner with friends at the Legends at Walker's Bluff. The New York strip steaks were very tender and well prepared. The seared salmon and bleu chicken were excellent. The waiters were very prompt and service was exceptional. The price of the menu items was reasonable for the quality of the food we were served. We plan to return to the Legends for another special occasion. We highly recommend this restaurant and the other venues at Walker's Bluff."

  • "I selected Legend's for a gourmet level dinner to re-acquaint with my college sweetheart of 40 years ago. Every aspect was top-notch, the service, the food, the ambiance.....and the complementary strawberry champagne made it over the top. Oh yes, we are still together and dine at Legend's when we can."

  • "Our visit to Legend's was in celebration of my daughter's 19th birthday. Our 3-generation "Girls Night Out" was a beautiful and relaxing evening thanks to our fantastic wait staff. Dakota kept our drinks filled and brought my daughter the most delicious birthday carrot cake at the end of our meal. Our waiter (his name escapes me) was a wonderful host, very informative about the menu options and overall was attentive and accommodating to our requests. He even helped us capture our evening in a photo. We will definitely spread the word to our friends and we will return to your awesome venue for future family celebrations!"

  • "Although the traditional long table brunch options were gone, the menu items did not disappoint. The omelets were fluffy and filled with a variety of goodies, the meats were done to a tee, the pastries and breads were really good. The desserts were a bit limited, but rich and satisfying. Good food, great drinks, wonderful setting and special friends, not a bad Sunday. Then the Tasting Room had entertainment and that rounded out the day!"

  • "I visit family in Southern Illinois every few months and I always include a visit to Walker's Bluff Legends for dinner or brunch. The house is well-managed and always accommodating to any special requests. I especially enjoy their menu that evolves with the seasons and offers fresh and well-prepared food -- from starters to desserts. On this hot summer evening we started with fresh chilled oysters with granita toppings and later enjoyed the pork ribeye and lobster tail, finishing with a shared Crème Brûlée. You'll find a well-stocked bar, great wine selection, and excellent service. Legends at Walker's Bluff is always a pleasure!"
