“Great place to grab a brew and some grub after hiking.”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere is really cool, daytime bartender is really cool. Nice beer selection for what they have. Food was pretty good and definitely cheap. A burger and craft beer were only $11. Much better experience than the last time I went.

“More miss then Hit”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Going to Legal Grounds is like playing Russian Roulette. you might get the bullet or you might pass by. What I mean is the food here is hit or miss. I have been numerous times and sometimes the food is good and sometimes the food. More than less on my experience is the food has been miss. The best thing about this place is the bands they get are decent and their bar is good for a local bar to hang out with friends. Other then that don't expect to be wowed by the food.

“Seems Like The Only Choice”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

Been there twice over 7 years. The beer is cold, the kitchen doesn't have a clue.

“Service was great, food was not”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

Our server was great, the food was average at best. The restaurant was not very busy for Saturday lunch. The fries were the best part of the meal.

“Live 2 minutes away & won't eat here.”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

We've tried Legal Grounds several times but the food just doesn't measure up. Mostly a local hangout for bands, drinking and partying on the weekends. They get some good bands in but if you're going for the food - it's not good. Wish it was as it's in a great location with a cool atmosphere.
