Legends Restaurant & Sports Bar
If you’re looking for a place to watch any type of sporting event in Long Beach, Legends is the clear front-runner. The humongous two-story space on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore, opened by a former L.A. Rams lineman in the late 70s, resembles a small airplane hanger strung with championship banners and is outfitted with a giant projection screen that drops down from the ceiling. The food menu is borderline Cheesecake Factory large, so we suggest sticking with the sports bar fail-safes that are done justice here: burgers and wings. And if you happen to arrive at brunch, get one of their fairly ridiculous mimosas, which come in a goblet topped with an upside-down mini bottle of sparkling wine.
