We had the crab cakes and blackened steak salad. The salad drowned in dressing, and the crab cakes were marginal. The steak had a good flavor.

Seasonal menu was delicious. Salad bar has good options. Dessert was decent. Bartender is top notch. The tenderloin filet with marrow butter was delicious. My friend enjoyed her wasabi salmon. A great place for a nice meal in a pleasant and polished atmosphere.

Did not like their brunch menu but we tried it. Lunch and dinner much better and you can still order that. Love their salad bar. They sat us right next to the piano and we had to ask them to move us which they did very hard to hear when you are that close. Music was nice from a distance.

We had a date night there. It was very nice. Nice meal with a good environment. Long time piano player so it makes for a pleasant experience. Food was good. Deserts are awesome. Great salad bar.

I would definitely recommend it to others looking for a nice date night or to celebrate a special occasion. Speaking of special occasions, the couple sitting next to us was celebrating their 34th wedding anniversary. What makes it even more special was the fact they celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary at Legends 33 yrs ago.

That's just the kind of place Legends is. It's been around a long time so it's nice to have that bit of nostalgia as well.

Legends is still one of our favorite restaurants in Norman. The horseradish crusted Salmon and the Sea Scallops are our "go-to" entrees and the salad bar is always great.

Day after valentines. We were seated in an overflow room with much less ambiance. Food was very good and the young man who served us did a good job. Desert menu was expansive. It would help to have desert menu printed and have the specials communicated

The food was priced like Redrock & Charlestons, but the plate sizes weren’t as large. I was also disappointed that they didn’t have any beer on tap. But overall is was just OK, not worth the $100 I spent with tip.

Not a romantic date place, just a pricey place to eat in an old outdated facility. They sat us by the bread warmers and kitchen entry, close to the lack luster salad bar. The ribeye was seasoned well and very tasty. Just not a place we’d return too, nor recommend.

This is our favorite go to place but tonight we had a group of four ladies behind us who were very loud and never quit talking making it hard to talk and listen to the beautiful piano music being played. This was not all legends fault it was just one of those things that happen sometimes when people aren't considerate of others.

I had heard of this restaurant for many years and decided to finally go. The building was non-descriptive, I thought I might be disappointed with the whole event. The decor was nice and homey feeling. There was a live piano player which was nice to dine by. Service was above average, food was average. All in all it was a pleasant evening but I would not drive the 45 minutes just to eat there again.

This is our favorite dinner place with great food and great service and a relaxing atmosphere as well! This place is just a hidden gem that we truly love and have since we first started coming here. Another thing we like is they keep their wait staff so you get the same bunch of great service from their wonderful wait staff.

Excellent restaurant that has been a mainstay for locals for many years. The food is always excellent. The wine list is, however, somewhat limited. Service can be somewhat inconsistent when the restaurant is crowded. Overall, the food never disappoints.
