The food is OK. The waitress was horrible. We sat for a long time before she came to bring menus and take drink orders--apologizing that she was busy splitting checks. We then waited a long time to get our drinks. We had allowed one hour for 2 of us to grab a quick lunch and when it looked like we were going to run late for our meeting, I gave her our credit card to run through since we may need to take the food to go. The food showed up just then...a burger and fish and chips. She never brought our pretzel appetizer out. She dropped the bill and my credit card and let me know she took the appetizer off the bill. Since we had paid as we got our food she never checked back. Both of us needed a refill on our drinks and the ketchup was out at the table. Wanted to like it so much, but not impressed.

Our food was very good, but we were seated and then waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table to take our drink orders. Then it was very slow to get our food-we had to rush to finish in time to get to the hockey game.

We reserved with plenty of time before a basketball game. When our waitress greeted us, I requested information about the specials. I saw on the board that there was Greek burger on special as well as Brussels sprouts as a possible appetizer. I asked was was on the Greek burger, she said she didn't know, but thinks maybe spinach and feta cheese. I asked about what was with the Brussels sprouts, she indicated Brussels sprouts, balsamic vinegar and crisp chick peas. We ordered 2 draft beers and placed our order for the Brussels sprouts and not the Greek burger because she never did find out what was on it. It took over 30 minutes to get our beers, Brussels sprouts about 45 minutes and then the food took over hour and 20 minutes!! We have to rush to eat our meal because of the game at 7pm. Instead of asking if we wanted another drink, she picked up our glasses and left the table without saying a word. We had usually go to Legends before home games, but this year has been disappointing. With Legends on the grounds of Notre Dame, you would assume that they hold themselves at a higher standard, but clearly it has been disappointing and we would rather spend our good money at a place that care about the quality.

Appetizers took forever & were cold when we got them. Server was not very pleasant. Ordered a medium rare steak but got a well done one. Did take steak off of bill & have is 2 free desserts so that was ok.

Made a reservation 3 weeks + in advance... still had to wait for my table. Was hoping for better seating than we were given. Waitress was either over-sat or just poor at her job, service was extremely lacking and slow.

The food was okay.

Monster cookie for dessert was super burnt...If I worked at a restaurant and the kitchen gave me that for a customer at one of my tables there's no way I would have served it. Have some pride in your work and don't do that. Shame on both the kitchen and the waitress for even thinking that was exceptable. If you wouldn't eat it then nobody else wants to pay to eat it.

We have eaten here many times and always enjoyed. This trip was different. We waited 45 minutes just to get drinks! The food, when finally arrived, was great but the service was lousy.

The atmosphere was great, as it always is, and the food was good. We made the reservation for an hour and a half before the basketball game we had tickets for and we were almost late to the game because of the slow service.

Food was good, but not as good as in the past. They were very busy due to a basketball game ending and a hockey game starting. Service was slow during this busy time, but it seems like they should have expected it based on the event happening on campus.

Potato soup was like wall paper paste. French fries were not hot. Wrap was all lettuce.
Short Rib was good, burger was decent.

This was not our 1st time there and was disappointed with the food. 5 out of 6 of use had dishes with chicken in them and the chicken was cold. The 2 salads came out after the rest of the group had their food and the wrap sandwiches(which were both the same sandwich were not consistent). One wrap sandwich was heavy on the grill marks and the other lack in flavor and portion size comparing the 2. And the non chicken dish was a burger that lacked flavor and was dry. Glasses for water and beverages are very undesireable, cloudy and residue in and on them. The menu changed which was ok, but they need to amp up the food quality and service coming out of the kitchen. Food was slow to come out for a not really busy evening. Come on Legends! Get back in the game!

Serving sizes are very large. I am tired of restaurants only offering 1/2 pound burgers. Wish a smaller burger was available on the menu. Ordered beer (not on draft) and no glasses were brought or offered. We had reservations and it still took 15 minutes to get seated. Restaurant was crowded prior to a basketball game and service was slow. Waitress was very pleasant and lots to read on the walls for entertainment.
