Looking for first class service and delectable dining as well as a great golf experience? Look no further than The Legends Country Club in Eureka.
“From the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave we will provide a top notch experience,” promised Andrew Shrensker, director of food and beverage. “Our staff genuinely cares about the club and its members.”
The Legends Country Club is a private club that offers a variety of membership plans. However, from Jan. 18 to March 31, their fine dining is open to the public.
“The primary focus of the dining facility is upscale comfort food; however, we serve everything from pizza to sandwiches to filet mignon,” said Carson Burks, executive chef. “There is nothing we can’t prepare for you.”
The Legends rolled out a new menu on Jan. 16 that features a variety of tantalizing appetizers, soups, salads and entrees guaranteed to please the pickiest
Diners can start off with a mouth-watering Wellington Bites appetizer. The pan-seared miniature puff pastry cakes are stuffed with tenderloin, caramelized onions, wild mushrooms and garlic. Other options include calamari, shrimp cocktail or crab cakes.
Both Burks and Shrensker recommend that first-time diners order a steak for their main entrée. The six-ounce filet mignon is topped with red wine-braised mushrooms and bleu cheese butter, and served alongside roasted garlic whipped potatoes.
“We serve a great steak,” Burks said.
Not in the mood for steak? Try an apple-marinated, single bone pork chop finished with vanilla-honey apple bacon relish, and served with corn and cheddar polenta, and crispy onion garnish. Or you might like a pan-seared “airline” chicken breast – a boneless chicken breast with the drumette attached – served alongside a chicken and mushroom crepe, both finished with chardonnay chicken jus and served with grilled asparagus.
“Also we have a bi-weekly feature sheet of seven specials that change to provide the freshest ingredients in a creative way,” Burks said.
Shrensker said the kitchen staff is constantly working on new items and ideas to prevent a stagnant dining experience.
Every Sunday a wonderful brunch is served from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Offering a full spread of traditional brunch items as well as a build-your-own omelet bar, The Legends is the perfect place to relax with family and friends. Prices are reasonable at just $12.95 for adults and $6.95 for children ages 5-12.
In February The Legends will offer a special four course Valentine’s Dinner and live music on both Feb. 13 and 14. The dinner has limited availability so make your reservations soon.
“We are dedicated to hospitality,” Shrensker said.
The Legends Country Club also can help cater all types of events. From retirement parties to wedding receptions to baby showers, the Legends Country Club can make any event delicious.
“We love banquets and do them very well,” Shrensker said.
The Legends can prepare a seated banquet for about 225 people and hors d’oeuvres receptions for up to 350.
“The Legends strives to be the premier dining facility in Eureka, and we feel that we deliver a top notch experience from start to finish,” Burks said.
