I have been to this beautiful place three times now and never have I ever been disappointed. You know why? Because Jenny is there. She is a whirling dervish of magic.
8 standards on tap, last time i was there they had an imperial ipa, this time they had a tripel, a quad, and a barleywine (15%) which was shocking. the barleywine wasn't bad, the quad and trip both pretty good, but no ipa on tap this time. sad, but i can forgive them this once.
large outdoor patio in the summer, large open space inside, little smoking room to the side of the bar. the beer quality is alright. i have heard to never eat the food though. The kitchen does look a little gross.
We were enjoying the Jenny show when my friend FB went to use the facilities. When he arrived in the bathroom, he found a man slumped against the wall, nearly on his knees, kneeling over the urinal and peeing. FB said "Hello" The gentleman blurted "Is everyone alright?" FB said "Yeah, I think everyone's alright out there." But it was the way he said it that made it so beautiful, as if he were talking to his wife on the phone, and he was late again for supper, cold macaroni on the table, kids in bed. He then returned to the bar and drank from his mug. Oh, yeah, did I mention they have a mug club?

Caught the place on a very busy lunch hour. Seated fairly quickly but long wait for the waitress to arrive for drink orders. Food was okay but nothing remarkable.

The roasted Brussel sprouts are superb. I order mine with out bacon: as that fat isn't really needed. Of course the beer selection is Legend but that's expected. I really enjoyed their Triple very light not alcoholic which in my experience is unusual.

Legend has a class setup right on the James River which makes lounging nice. The beers are decent and I have always enjoyed the Brown Ale. The service was marginal the last few times I visited for food and beer.

It's hard to find a better patio in Richmond to enjoy a nice day than that of Legend's. The beer is still okay, though I feel like they haven't kept up with current beer trends as well as some other more established breweries.

If the weather isn't so great, sitting inside is just fine. Service is friendly and helpful. Vibe is laid back and casual.

The beer is okay - some staples like Brown Ale are there and generally great. But some other offerings tend to disappoint a bit (cask selections can be really interesting though).

Food is on par with typical bar food - sandwiches and the like. It is a great place to meet up for a beer with lunch or after work. I don't live in Richmond but if I was ever passing through would try to meet friends there for a beer with a breeze and a view.

Decent but the attraction of course is the great beer.

Da Boss and I stopped in after a half day d at the Civil War Confederacy Museum (I am a Michigan Yankee residing in Phoenix).

Vibe was good, tons of outdoor seating to go with a spacious indoor brewpub. Seating was available in the front and on a huge back deck. Indoors the brewpub was spacious and inviting.

Quality of the beer was pretty good. Da Boss enjoyed the Winter seasonal and I tried the Brown and Tripel.

Service was solid on a fairly quiet mid-afternoon.

Selection was good ranging from the brewery core beers to several seasonals, imperial versions of core styles, and bourbon barreled versions of their brew.

Food was very good. We both had burgers that were very good and the sides were OK.

Overall a nice brewpub that I would visit again.
