Ate here several time over the course of an event held at this venue. Pizza was fantastic (chicken bacon ranch on gluten free crust, brick oven baked). The opening event had a nice buffet with sirloin steaks and chicken Marsala, both of which were tasty.

I was there for a convention and the staff and facilities were great. The food was really good as well. Try the cheesecake- really amazing!

Walker's Bluff has a cool location north of town at a vineyard, but it really isn't even a winery. They have a couple of house made wines, but they are pretty generic and bad. They have a good selection of beer and other wine, but it is all overpriced. The facility is divided into Legend's - a full restaurant, and... More

I'm not sure why I keep going back to Legends at Walker's Bluff; the last four experiences were terrible. I guess I keep hoping that they get their act together and operate a successful, high-quality, dining option here in Southern Illinois. But I think my most recent experience will be my last. We made our reservations over a week in... More

Went tonight for date night and I was impressed. The service was very good and the food was also good. We both had the steak which was excellent and cooked perfect. You get a bottle of wine and appetizer an entree and a desert for a reasonable price.

Beautiful scenery inside and out! The location is a bit out of the way, but once you get there it is absolutely stunning. We went on Thursday date night in July, food is good, wine selection is nice (one bottle comes with the meal) and the atmosphere is absolutely beautiful. We will definitely go back when visiting family in the... More

A friend of ours invited us out for dinner on a Thursday night. We accepted, but what I didn't know was where we were going. My guy & this couple found The Legends at Walker's Bluff while I was out of town. Every Thursday they have what's called a date night menu. For $45 per couple, you each get an... More

There were no shortcuts taken when they designed and developed this place. Simply put, the nicest and most impressive place to visit in S. Illinois. We will be back!

A definite destination place as it is most out of the way. Several friends recommended, so we wanted to give it a try. Atmosphere is fantastic with attention to detail. Soft lighting, cloth table cloths and napkins, fireplace. I had the bouillabaisse which had a nice flavorful base. It came with 3 shrimp and 3 mussels one of which did... More

We had a party of 14 with dinner reservations.The staff at Legends were extremely accommodating. We arrived early for a tasting and to listen to the music. This winery was the only one all day to give an actual tasting amount of wine. The rest only gave a half of a sip. The wines were delicious and the service was... More
