Maybe it's just what I ordered but I thought the Shrimp appetizer (the waitress called them "jumbo" shrimp) was just average. The sauce can be served on the shrimp or on the side and I was so glad I ordered it on the side because it was horrible prepared salad dressing (parmesan garlic). My husband ordered the sliders and was... More

If you've been to Ireland, then you know that a lot of the great pubs are family friendly places, which is what happens on Sundays 3-5pm here. The Murphy Roche school of Irish music and dance gets together, and the restaurant is filled with great craic altogether.

Just had a semi- large crowd for a birthday party. The food was excellent, the service impeccable and the private room was beautiful with its own bar. Courtney was extremely helpful setting up the party and making sure everyone was happy. I would highly recommend for a party or just lunch or dinner. Great place!

I have only been here a couple of times but I see this turning into a regular place that I would like to go to. Good food, good service, good atmosphere.

This has become a new favorite for a night out that includes Irish food fare. We have been back several times, great little gal from Ireland always provides top notch service, fast, friendly even when they're busy. She never stops moving or letting the glass empty out. Others have provided similar service on our visits. Food is great, no haunting... More

From the moment we walked in to the Legend, it was love at first sight. From the cozy bar room with fire place and round tables to the tall tables in the "sports bar" section. Hawk season brings out the folks in jerseys and everyone enjoys beer, spirits and of course some super bar food including corned beef bites and... More

First off, I really like the pub-like atmosphere, it is really warm and inviting (and there is an outdoor beer garden and a deck) Went there with my son, he had a Guinness and I had a Sam Adams Oktoberfest. The beer was cold, glassware clean and bright and the beer was enjoyable. We were both not extremely hungry so... More

Nothing special about this place, but the food is good when they finally get the order right. I ordered a Buffalo Chicken wrap, and was brought hot wings. When I told my server of the error, she disagreed and said thats not what she wrote down. It wasn't until the others I was with told her I did order a... More
