Legend's has been around for years and they've never lost their edge for prearing great food and homemade deserts. They have great service too, Mike is our favorite server. Mike is attentive and a pleasure to be around.

Very simply, Legends is the best restaurant in Norman. Atmosphere is high class, service is first rate, salad bar is the finest, desserts are famous, family owners are first class.

In a dining landscape dominated by Saltgrass; Red Lobster & BJ’s - it’s great to visit an old school and traditional local restaurant. Legend’s has everything from the surly bartender, to the over-eager college student server, to the house mom overseeing the entire operation. Mix-in...More

I liked this restaurant so much, I ate there for my second night in Norman as well. Everything (except the ONion soup which was too salty) was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The desserts were out of this world... espeically the lemon cake.

Was at legends for dinner after a wedding rehearsal. It was a big party and they closed off part of the restaurant giving a private room which give us some privacy and so we didn't annoy other. The food was fantastic and I could not...More

This place IS a Norman classic--serving good food for years and years. The decor needs to be updated, but the food is top notch. The menu has some classics and the salad bar is a bit of a throwback, but they have also started doing...More

We had dinner tonight at this long time standing restaurant in Norman. Great food and service. They have a piano player, Karen Khoury who plays on Friday night who is very good and enjoyable to talk and listen too. A Norman classic place to eat.

Hi Cathryn, This time of year they get busy so perhaps it is not a bad idea to reserve especially since it is a group.
