Nightmare – Went to Legends, food was ok. Paid by card--noticed next day was charged for food we didn't order. So........ called first thing Monday, took name said a manager would call back. Called Tuesday afternoon, took name, said a manager would call back. Called Tuesday evening, took name, said a manager would call me back. Called Thursday, took name, said a manager would call me back. Called Saturday afternoon, said manager on today could not help me and I need to call back on Monday. What a bad way to run a business. It wasn't that much of an overcharge and I would have been happy to get a gift certificate and gone back to the restaurant. But, after being blown off 5 times, I don't think I will ever go back there.

sweet – this bar has everything. beer, food, women, big screen tvs, and sports. you can never go wrong with that much in one place.
Please Read This Before Going To Legends – First off I'd like everyone to know I don't write reviews for nothing, but if this stops just one person from going or returning it will make me happy. This is my story of "Legends Sports Bar"
Me and two of my very good friends walk to legends on Jan 12, 2009. We go there to watch the Pit Steelers VS SD Chargers. We are all Pit fans so we wanted to be loud and have a good time. So you would think a "Sports Bar" would be the place to go right? Wrong! We walk in and ask for a table for 3. They have 5 booths open in plain sight and they said we only have standing room upstairs. I asked about a booth, and they said you need at least 4 people for a booth. I then told them that the three of us were ready to spend over 100.00 was there anything they could do? She said no. So we looked around and found two dirty tables and sat in them. she comes over and said we cant put two tables together because its two different waitresses tables. So we talked to both waitresses and they had no problems with it and let us do it. So we are there during the game and at legends they wont let you get up and high five, they wont let you wave a terrible towel, they wont let you jump for a great play. Actually they warned us if we did any of this again we would be removed from the establishment. So 10 minutes later a manager came to me with his waitress and said.. he is cut off. I had a total of 2 beers (bud light). Then someone throws ice at my buddy and they kick my friend out for it. My other two friends had a total of 5 rum and cokes and a shot each. We all went in on an appetizer. So how much was our bill? $195.00
20 rum and cokes
They double charged us for everything but shots and appetizer!
So we are looking for a new place that will take our money from now on because Legends is for people who are with kids, or who are 90 years old.. Not for sports fans.
Fun bar! – This is my favorite bar in belmont shore. Fun for watching sports and their burgers are good too. I have only been a few times because I just moved to the area but this place and murphy's Pub are the best for watching NFL.
Misstatement on Pouring Spouts – Not much of a Bartender if you can't tell the difference between a common pouring spout and one that monitors or controls pouring. We always appreciate input from patrons whether it is favorable or not, but would at least appreciate being accurate in your comments.
SWEET SUBS and TASTY GERMAN Beer to pour away the Laker Loss ;( – I love this place. It was quite depressing to watch the Lakers get pounded on by the Celtics in Game 6, but the food and the beer helped the misery go away. I love this joint, great service, amazing selection of beers and awesome food.
BIG BROTHER – I went into Legends this past Sunday for the Laker game, and noticed something weird about the pour spouts on there bottles, I asked the bartender to see it, and he showed me what is a microchip pour spout to regulate there pours, I being a local bartender couldn't help but laugh. Big Brother can stay out of my bar. As a seasoned bartender I can assure you that occassionally topping off a drink for a good customer only maximizes profits. Patrons stay longer, spend more & come back. If a certain bartender is over pouring to attempt to maximize his or her tips, the other bartenders WILL report it because it puts them in the position of having to explain why they too have to ask the manager for another bottle of brand X booze even though they have only sold a minimal amount from the last bottle. Customers will quickly avoid bars that use this technology, bartenders will go elsewhere & naive owners who over invested in this mistrustful technology will go bankrupt trying to pay for it. Why would I want to work for someone who ? assumes ? I?m untrustworthy?
Go For the Games, Not the Food! – The rebulit Legends may be refreshingly new, but their food offerings are old and uninspired. Unfortunately our outing on 2nd Street was spoiled by slow service, dreadful food and surprisingly flat beer.
My sandwich bread was stale; my cup of soup was floating with several pieces of boiled vegetables (left-overs that reminded me of hospital cafeteria food) in brown, salty broth. How wrong can one go with vegetable soup? Management replied that they use only "fresh bread and not left-overs." Lucilles is much more appealing.
Electricity throughout... – I want you to know that going to a busy bar can be a little trying. Yes it gets hot, yes it may take a little while to get a drink. I read all these reviews on here and it breaks my heart that people are so impatient. Legends has been a landmark in Los Angeles/Long Beach since 1979. When you go in there and are watching a game with almost three hundred other people, you can almost expect certain things. It isn't a fine dining restaurant here folks, it's a SPORTS BAR! A busy one at that. When I go to a sporting event, (Laker/Dodger/King game) I know there are going to be crowds and long lines... Par for the course. I just wish people would keep in mind that Legends has and always will be about atmosphere. Anyone who has ever been to a sporting event during the playoffs knows that electricity that flows through the place. That's why Legends is what it is. It's a place local southern Californians can congregate and feel a sense of camaraderie. The oohs and aahs are enough to keep me coming back again and again. If it doesn't work out for you the first time, try it again. I promise you'll change your mind. The place wouldn't have made since 1979 if it weren't doing something right. The unfortunate fact remains that people will always be quicker to gripe than they will be to compliment anything. That said, I'll see you all down at the GREATEST sports bar in Los Angeles!
