We made reservations for our anniversary dinner on 8/31/2021. Our table was ready when we arrived and the service was outstanding. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The food was absolutely wonderful. We ordered steaks that were cooked to perfection. The appetizers were amazing as well as the desserts. We had an awesome experience and we appreciate you all making our anniversary dinner such a memorable experience. We will definitely recommend to all of our friends and family.

It’s such a joy to celebrate birthdays at Legends, where everyone makes you feel so special and the piano player does a little happy birthday riff when they bring your cake.

We came for my birthday and they took great care of us! The only reason I didn’t rate them with 5s across the board is that it was a bit noisy for my liking. We had a great time. Food was good, service was good, and we enjoyed the live piano music.

Our server, Robbie, was fantastic. Though they were out of my wife's first choice entree, and didn't have our wine choice chilled, he made the most of what could have been an unpleasant experience into an enjoyable evening. We enjoyed the piano too.

Legends had excellent food and staff. There was a piano player and there is a bar. Our waiter was attentive and witty. We had the fried ravioli appetizer, tilapia topped with crab cake, horseradish salmon with wedge salads and took brownie cake home for dessert. The food tasted fresh and delicious. We had a great time and we look forward to visiting again.

This was our first visit and it will now be one of our regular places. The food was amazing! Lacie and Robby were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The piano music added so much to the evening. We thought of Legend’s as a special occasion spot, but the food, atmosphere and hospitality make any day a special occasion.

We enjoyed our first visit to Legend’s restaurant. The service was great and the entertainment was an extra bonus. Our food was very good, but the sauces were too spicy for us. It would be good to offer options for those who can’t have spicy foods for dietary reasons.

The waiters service was a perfect pace. The food was delicious. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. My only disappointment that we were seated too near the piano, while the music was terrific it was a bit loud for conversation.

I ordered my steak medium well. When delivered, it was very undercooked. Returned it and it came back not much different. My husband ate it. My grandson ordered his steak medium. It was barely rare! He would not return it. The restaurant was freezing cold. I asked if they could turn the air down a notch. It never happened. I was shivering so much I couldn’t enjoy just being there. I had on slacks and a 3/4 sleeve shirt. I am a long time Norman resident and have been to Legends several times. We took my grandson and his fiancé there for their first time and I wanted to treat them. I was disappointed I spent $200 and none of us enjoyed it. I will certainly go back but last night was a big and expensive disappointment. Thank you.

We always go to Legends for birthdays & anniversaries so we were so glad to be back there after missing them in 2020! Food and service were excellent as always and they went out of their way to tell us Happy Anniversary and gave us a free dessert to celebrate. Still our favorite place!

We were in town for 1 night and looked up the restaurants on Trip Advisor and found the Legend’s. It was a pleasant experience. The service was excellent. Our server Sally was very nice. I ordered the special which was Chilean sea bass. It was good but unfortunately it was breaded and pan seared. I had never had Chilean sea bass served that way. The fish is good enough on it’s own and does not need to be breaded. The piccata sauce was good. My husband had salmon which was also good but overcooked. They only thing I did not like about the place was the piano player who talked too much between his musical pieces.

I have been going to Legend's since 1968. It has never disappointed. It is one of our favorite restaurants of all time. So very happy Legend's survived the pandemic and look forward to them resuming lunch, hopefully in time for the OU games this fall. Highly recommend this restaurant in every aspect.

Enjoyed Gregg Kennedy on piano throughout the evening. His talent and the enjoyment listening to a wide array of music made the ambiance very special. Legend’s was an old favorite that has now become a must visit again on a regular basis. Food was outstanding as it always has been and service was great as well. A+++

My husband and I were visiting in Norman, OK and chose Legend’s for dinner. We each drank a glass of a red wine and each chose the Oklahoma catfish dinner. It was accompanied with rice and vegetables and a blue cheese wedge salad.
We were very pleased with the food and service. We would highly recommend the salad.
