Got there and there was a 15 minute wait, open tables but thought no big deal they need to clean them up. Got to our table and they clearly did not clean the floor up after the last few people. Bathrooms needed to be cleaned also. Kids ordered a burger and the other got pasta. Burger was okay and alfredo... More

Stopped in for a late night dinner and it was excellent. Had the ribeye with fries, very tasty and loved the thin crinkle cut fries. My wife had the fish and chips and gave it two thumbs up. We decided to order cheesecake for dessert with caramel and it looked and tasted outstanding, just enough for the two of us... More

Since moving to the Des Moines area about 8 years ago, I had always had good experiences at the different Legends around town. I especially like the Legends by 50th and Mills Civic, although the one on 60th and Ashworth in WDM has a cozy feel to it, too. I would NOT recommend this location, even though it is very... More

We stopped by to see the Jayhawks lose to the TCU team. We were not happy. But we did have a fun time at this restaurant as the food we had was very good. Place has lots of Tv's, even at most of the tables for private viewing. Did not spend a lot of time there but we would recommend... More

Took family (4 adults; 1 child; 1 infant) to lunch there on a Friday afternoon. We were seated quickly, but the booth initially presented didn't work with the infant in a carrier. They quickly moved us to a more accommodating booth. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was good wholesome American fare. Portions are generous. Everyone thought the food was... More

I came here while visiting family in the area over the holidays. The ambiance was nice enough, and the servers were all efficient and friendly. I got the Southwest burger and fries. It tasted OK, even though the fries were really greasy. Then that night I felt a little weird. I woke up early the next morning and it was... More

I've been traveling to Johnston now for several weeks and have started to frequent this establishment quite a bit. They have a decent menu, good prices and a great selection of beer including local craft beers.

Went here for a business luncheon. The service was very friendly. There were eight of us, but food was still delivered in a timely manner. The hamburgers were cooked just right and the waffle fries were very good. The atmosphere was comfortable and allowed us to easily talk to each other. Will certainly go there next time I am in...

Have had many things at the Legends off 86th St in Johnston,IA - but my favorites are either the bacon bbq burger or the taco salad. Both are huge! Believe me - you don't leave hungry! Have always had excellent service as well!
