Relocating? Life in Lake Norman

Legends of Lake Norman: A Lake Norman Real Estate Restaurant Review

Every once-in-a-while I just have to diverge from Mooresville Lake Norman Real Estate and share about why it is so wonderful to live in Mooresville and the greater Lake Norman area. My restaurant reviewer/friend Kathy K just sent me this!

A Lake Norman Restaurant Review


Kathy K.

Legends of Lake Norman in Mooresville is my new favorite place to nosh.

They serve breakfast, lunch and an evening menu which includes Tapas after 4PM, a Sunday brunch, wine tastings on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and they have an extensive wine list as well as a full bar menu. Also offered is a Coffee Bar which did quite a bit of walk-in business while my husband and I were there. Thursdays through Saturdays they have a live band performing at 7PM.


The decor is creative to say the least and there are several unusual trinkets that can be purchased that are set up around the restaurant. The feel is very much that of a European outdoor cafe. The concrete floors are stamped to look like cobblestones with two quaint outdoor street lights inside which add to an outdoor sidewalk cafe feel even though you’re sitting inside. There is a limited amount of indoor seating, which is a mix of a beautiful long bar, one booth, one high top table and several smaller tables with straight back chairs, cushioned custom chairs and window box seating. In addition, there is a large uncovered outside eating patio as well. The walls have faux windows painted on them enclosed in windowsills and adorned with flower boxes…and a mix of fresh flowers in lovely, colorful vases are everywhere. The stained glass lighting ties it all together. It’s a very comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

The food is some of the best we’ve had yet. I ordered half of The Legend, which is an all white meat chicken sandwich with celery, cranberries and candied walnuts which came with a side salad that couldn’t have been any fresher had I picked it out of my own garden. In addition it came with the Soup du Jour of the day which was the Chicken Noodle that I was able to swap out for the Lobster Bisque for an additional 50 cents. Best 50 cents I’ve ever spent. The entire meal was fabulous!!! My husband opted for the Cubano, a sliced pork tenderloin with cheese, mustard and pickles which is then hot pressed on Cuban style bread. His also included the side salad. He drooled over his meal as well. Since Legends is noted for their exquisite pastries we split the Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake which was to die for.

I highly recommend this little restaurant and I’m quite certain we’ll be going back often, and I urge you to give it a try as well. I’m certain you won’t be disappointed.
