Legends, our refreshed tavern offers a new menu featuring shareables, burgers, salads and sandwiches. Located just yards from Notre Dame Stadium on its sound side, Legends is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday. The University of Notre Dame is a cashless campus. Please be aware that campus is undergoing multiple construction projects this summer that may impact how you navigate campus by vehicle and on foot. A renovation project to the Main Circle on Notre Dame Avenue has begun, closing the roundabout to traffic. Access to North Notre Dame Avenue will be limited until mid-August and you may experience delays upon your arrival to campus. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to welcoming you to campus.

    Much more limited menu than last visit. Long wait to get served after being seated, but once she came, she was good. Biggest issue is the menu and too much fried food.

    Group of 5 women out for film and dinner- we enjoyed ourselves- service was excellent, casual food good - burgers and ribs, cocktails on expensive side. Easy place to catch a bite on way to sports or performances. Booths have wooden benches- ooh - a bit too hard! We changed to cushioned seating. Thank you.

    All great except that their system didn’t have our confirmed Open Table booking. We were told this often happens. There was plenty of space to be seated - but what would have happened if it had been full?

    I think we had a server who along with our table of three had a table of 9 and then helped a group of 30+ later on . Sat around for 15-20 min until she came back up to get drink and good order ( said she would be right back ) Drinks, 2 waters and lemonade , took 10 -15 min to be brought to table and she forgot the beer I ordered . I had to remind another server , who brought it out 5 min later(2 min before the food arrived) . I never finished the beer ! Then one of our burgers was ordered correctly but delivered wrong ; we decided to eat it rather than wait for it to be remade. Food was awesome but disappointed with the server on this visit

    Legends is a perfect pre game location. Like everything at Notre Dame, it’s really well done on all aspects. The food was excellent, it was a fun environment, and the service was perfect.

    The Fish & Chips was not good and the fries were burnt. I would not recommend that. We had high hopes but were not happy with the food quality. The burger was underwhelming.

    Will not make this mistake again. We are not fans of going to established sit down restaurants to be served pre- prepared mass produced food. I would say this about the fish and chips. Legends fish is to Fish as McNuggets are to Chicken. Hand dipping is not that difficult. Culver's does it, for goodness' sake. This fish was embarrassing and flavorless. Fries were good. Pulled pork- meh. Pretty sure that was from a prefab frozen container with sauce added. Was there horse radish in the tartar sauce? If so, why? A Guiness should not have a one inch head on it. The fried pretzels tasted ok, but wouldn't it be better to do a really good pretzel made as pretzels were intended to be made? Overall, there is a disappointing lack of pride in doing food well. Even tavern food can be done well when someone cares. The app will not let me add the picture of fish that appear to be cut from cookie cutter.

    We were sat right on time for our reservation but our waitress didn’t come to us for 20-30min. She kept disappearing, making it difficult for us to get more drinks. We had to wait for a pretty long time for our food, one of the meals came out wrong as well. We went there because we were attending the hockey game after and the wait almost made us late to the game.

    What a great way to prepare for a Fighting Irish Women's Basketball Game! We had made a reservation in advance and we were seated immediately upon arriving. The atmosphere is outstanding, especially if you are a Notre Dame fan! We were immediately greeted by our server, who was friendly, attentive and efficient. Because, at a game earlier in the week, an opponent player missed two free throws in a row, we were rewarded with a free nacho plate and WOW was it good. We followed that up with delicious hamburgers, chicken wings and good conversation. The meal was filling, the service was terrific and we finished just in time for the short walk to Purcell Pavilion to take in another victorious game by the awesome Notre Dame Women's basketball team....GO IRISH... and thank you Legends of Notre Dame for a great start to our evening!!

    Went to Legends Sunday Dec. 2 at 6 pm, intending to watch the Notre Dame v Michigan hockey game. The game was broadcast on Peacock. Legends doe NOT offer Peacock…not good since going there to watch sports that are only on Peacock could be a draw. Legends could advertise this because many local fans do not subscribe. Very disappointing!
