Try the Shaqs BBQ Shrimp. They have a lot of alumni clubs watching games there. They have a great crew of bartenders. Lot's of drink specials every night. Whiskey Wednesdays are my favorite night because they have $3.50 Jack, Crowns, & Jamesons. Speaking of Jamesons on St. Patty's Day they're serving up $3.00 Irish Car Bombs. They recently starting picking up UFC. They need more fans for the fights so they are going to have to remind a lot more people out there that they are showing the fights. It's a great place for Rockets fans to hang out. The bar manager is from Houston & so he's good to Rockets folk. The kitchen is pretty quick. You only have wait times when they are slammed. During the Dallas / Greenbay game it was insane fun. The Thanksgiving game rocks as well because everyone else is closed. Good food & cheap drinks and lot's of friends just travelling through the hotel makes for good singles hang out., more

Greatest Sports Bar In The N. W. 'Burbs! 9/17/2007

You have to pay attention to your directions to find Legends, but once you do you'll: A) Never forget how to get there and, 2) Want to come back. This little gem is located inside the Holiday Inn, of all places (183 SB @ MoPac SB: on the service road). As a recent transplant to Austin and an NFL fan, this place is Heaven on Sunday afternoons. 36 screens... all fed by NFL Sunday Ticket on satellite. They show every game! They even provide you a map of the TV's so you know where your favorite game(s) are going to be shown so you can grab a great seat. The place fills up every week, but not so full as to prevent you from finding a place to kick back. If you know you'll need a table for one of the early games, just show up 15 minutes early and you'll be fine! The food is your standard bar-fare: quesadillas, burgers, chicken tenders, etc.,... and the food prices are on-par with other competitors. The drinks are a bit pricey, but that's not surprising given how very little competition they have in this section of Austin and not out of line with what most places charge outside Happy Hour. The guys behind the bar are great. The staff on the floor is good. On VERY rare occasion you may get a stinker, but management is REALLY good and responsive. I've never seen a lesser server last more than one weekend. If you love the NFL, and you are homesick to see your favorite team play... go to Legends. Not only do they show every game, but there are usually fans present to cheer on every team every week. Pros: Games/Events Available, Staff/Service, Parking, Clientelle Cons: Location (tough to find the first time) more

Great atmosphere, great service 4/28/2007

My husband and I went to this bar tonight and we love it. It was not crowded, has a lot of TVs, and the food and service there are great. We definitely will visit there again soon! Pros: atmosphere, service, food more

Don't understand the good reviews, not good at all 4/28/2007

Looking for a sports bar in Austin to see a game recently, we decided to try Legends. I was not at all impressed. Negatives: - hard to find - it's in a Holiday Inn, and there were a lot of familes with kids there (this is at 10:00pm on a Friday night). It felt more like hanging out at Applebees than a sports bar. - They have only one pool table and one dart board (both of which were taken up by kids when we got there). - This may be a temporary problem, but it was really hot and stuffy inside. Maybe the A/C was broken, but it was uncomfortably hot inside, while it was a nice cool April evening outside. - Service was very slow and unresponsive, though the two bartenders were friendly enough. We're pretty new to Austin and haven't been to other Austin sports bars yet, but I can't imagine Legends being anywhere close to the best sports bar in Austin. I'd rank it below all of the half dozen or so sports bars I've been to in the Dallas area. I don't understand all the positive reviews--yeah, they have 30 TVs, but so what. As long I can see the game I want, I only need one TV, and everything about this place was terrible. more

Best Undiscovered Sports Bar 10/1/2006

It's not the BEST sportsbar but it is definitely the best undiscovered one. i have been here 3 times and never is anyone else there? There are 20-30 Tv's all showing different sports and they are very accomodating if you would like to watch football on the big screen when they are currently showing golf on it.. well it's not like anyone is going to complain? The bar food is good, all menu items are named after some icon like the Larry Bird Chicken sandwich, etc..If you're looking for a great place to watch a game that won't be crowded.. try this place!!! 183/360 in the Holiday Inn more

My Favorite Sports Bar 6/2/2006

Besides being non-smoking, Legends has a fun atmosphere, attentive waiters, lots of TVs, fair prices, tasty food, lots of parking spots, a variety of table sizes, and a good location in a safe area (though a little hard to find if it's your first visit). It also looks really clean inside. The only complaints I have would be the time it takes for the food to be prepared (but maybe it was just on a big game day) and the setting of some of the TVs to "panorama" screen mode so that players faces are stretched wider. Pros: non-smoking, food, atmosphere Cons: slow service once, tv screen setting, hard to find more

Legends Sports Bar 8/19/2004

While visiting in Austin recently, we wanted to go to a nice but casual place to eat. A young couple, who live in Austin, suggested we go to Legends Sports Bar. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was wonderful, the food was great, and the atmosphere was friendly and cordial. It was like being with family. I've never seen that many T.V.'s in one place before. Our thanks to the young couple for recommending Legends! Pros: reasonably priced, great atmosphere, friendly servers more

A true Sports Bar 8/28/2003

I recently went to Legends to watch a game that I couldn't get on TV at home. When I arrived I was blown away by the 30 TV's and the fact that they had my game. The food was good and the service was great. It looks like I've found my new sports bar. Pros: service, game coverage, prices more

AUSTIN'S ONLY SPORTS BAR!!!! 10/8/2002

Legends's is an awesome sports bar. With over 30 TV's, including two large projectors, they were getting every game!! They were kind of hard to find, (at the corner of 183 & mopac), but it was worth looking for. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was great!! Definitely worth checking out!!! Pros: tons of TV's, super clean, friendly servers Cons: hard to get to more

Football & food 8/25/2002

Recently I went to Legends Sports Bar located in the Holiday Inn in Northwest Austin. This place is awesome! I intended to go just to watch a football game that I couldn't get at my house, but when I got there is was amazing. This place has over 30 TV's and at halftime I played a little NTN trivia. The bartender was very friendly and acted like I was a long lost friend. It looks like I found my new "hangout." They have other stuff like pool tables, foosball and video games. Pros: TV's, Service, Food more

Gotta Love This Place 8/18/2002

The atmosphere here is great and the service is wonderful!!! They have live music on Friday nights - just what I needed to relax after a weeks' worth of work! more

Football Frenzie 8/17/2002

It was the best service around town. So many drink specials at prices that can't be beaten. Pros: Lots of TV's, Friendly atmosphere, Impresive Cons: Smokey more

perfect sports bar 8/5/2002

The best sports bar in Austin. The atmosphere is perfect for Saturday football games. Plenty of nice screens, and the layout easily accomodates many different games at once (several even with sound, which is rare.) The bartenders are very accomodating, and they even have great food! (Try the chicken sandwich or the quesadillas.) Long happy hour with great specials for drinks and appetizers. Pros: atmosphere, food, happy hour specials Cons: need guinness on tap more

  • In Short
    What else could a place with 30 television screens, a menu that ranges from burgers to steaks, a weekday happy hour from 4pm to 7pm and no cover charge be but a sports bar? Located in the Holiday Inn Northwest, Legend's is a restaurant and a real sports bar--there are few frills. Food, beer and athletics are the order of the day.
