    I took someone to Legends for lunch Friday at noon. This was the day before the opening home football game. The menu was greatly reduced from the usual menu. Service was very slow, it took 90 minutes from the time we put in our order to the time we paid and all we had ordered were sandwiches and water. There is need for double the number of wait staff on these weekends. Also the very limited menu was not mentioned before hand.

    The food is always very good, though we miss the lobster bites as an appetizer. This place is a little treasure and a great place to enjoy the ambience of Notre Dame. As long as they do not change it as happened with Murf's little spot next to The Morris Inn (a place now where you must use valet parking and the atmosphere is akin to something out of downtown Chicago) then we would look forward to the continued traditions we so enjoy at that location.

    As we were on ND campus for a short time and wanted to do dinner conveniently with our family of nine, the choice of the Legends was perfect. Plenty of food choices, good parking, friendly staff and service made it very enjoyable. Really appreciated the Open Table reservation system and how well it works.

    Legends was able to accomodate our group of 12 for lunch on graduation weekend. We were running ahead of schedule and called, the hostess was able to adjust our reservation. Server was very good and food was also good. Everyone enjoyed the experience. It did take some time to receive our order, but taking into account the busy weekend this was not unreasonable. Conveniently located on the Notre Dame campus Legends was perfect for lunch after the Law School graduation ceremony.

    I ordered the shrimp pasta in Thai Sauce. The shrimp were tiny and few. The sauce tasted good, but there had to have been a 1/2 gallon of it. Almost like a soup. My wife ordered the turkey avocado sandwhich - the turkey was a slimy cold cut, which she had one bite of and couldn't eat any more. Fun atmosphere.

    Was excited to eat here since it is right on campus. Waitress was very nice and friendly. Menu leaves a little to be desired. They have steaks but they are only served with the starch of the day which was Cous Cous, when I have steal I need a potato! Ordered corned beef and cabbage and my husband ordered a burger. They messed up my order and I ended up getting it for free but my husband and I didn't eat together as I was waiting for a replacement. His hamburger was ok, but he has had better at almost any steak place. At least we can say we ate there and know they don't have the greatest food so we won't have to go back.

    Three of us ate at Legends. The April special of pan fried flounder tasted like wet flour and the vegetables were unappetizing. The plate was oily from the cooking. Another dinner was of Coach Brey's mango chicken. Unappetizing as well. Our assessment is similar to what friends and colleagues have experienced as well.

    If you're a fan of Notre Dame this is the place for you. Reasonably priced, good ambiance for sports fans. Waitresses are students so don't expect super duper service. I got to sit next to one the Notre Dame women's basketball players (Natalie Achonwa) after their Regional Semi-final victory against Oklahoma State. Pretty cool.

    Went to Legends before heading over to watch the Irish take on BU in the Hockey East playoffs. I've eaten here countless times, and every time Legends does not disappoint. I enjoyed the great new specials for March; which was 10 new and different kinds of burgers. As usual, service was fast and waitress was checking up on our table at a reasonable amount of time. It's a great place to enjoy a meal before or after watching the Irish play in any sport!

    Legends at Notre Dame is a great place to dine if you are at Notre Dame for a weekend. The irish Nachos are a must. One order for a group of four works but if you have a larger party, order more. They disappear quickly! Tilapia was flavorful and sirloin steak with blue cheese was tender and cooked to perfection.

    Our server was awesome! Other servers...not so much. It was a hockey home game night. One server looked like a train wreck and stressed us out. The manager swore several times that we heard. Not in,y were children present but it was unprofessional. If not for our great waitress, I am not sure we would go back. Food was awesome and they had a huge gluten free section. Noise level was through the roof loud, but again it was a game night.

    I took a group to Legends of Notre Dame recently. It is decorated with Notre Dame sports themes and is a popular spot on campus. The food was okay but the service was not very good; the waitress seemed to be having a forgetful day. Greenfields on campus has better food and prices although they don't have a liquor license and cater more to the on campus crowd than visitors. Legends is an okay place but not anything special in terms of food or service.

    This restaurant is delicious! They offer a variety of appetizers (of which the pesto flatbread I can vouch is amazing), as well as entrées from burgers and fajitas to salads and juicy fish dishes. The atmosphere is great for small-late groups because the booths and multiple TV set-up. I definitely recommend this place for ND students and Alum, but also encourage others to check it out. The prices were also very acceptable considering the food portions and quality.

    We loved the idea of going to Legends. We have two tables: 8 adults at one table, 5 kids at a booth next to us. The only issue was the kids did not get their food until a half hour after the adults. (computer glitch that allowed another table to get in between our two tables ordering... just fix that little problem and I would call this a perfect experience!)
