    We shared both the mussels and rack of lamb at Legacy Restaurant. Servers were very good and attentive. The servings were generous and quite enough for both of us. A very good restaurant in Sarnia.

    The staff at ESMs always amaze me. It is usually so busy in there yet they always get our order to us quickly and they rarely make any errors. We went with a group of 12. Everyone was pleased with their meals and the service.
