A New Look for Legends Restaurant and Steakhouse in Columbia, TN

Posted by Lauren Reed | Jan 27, 2021 7:15:00 PM

Since 1988, Legends Steakhouse and the Brass Lantern have been serving high quality, made-from-scratch dishes across Middle Tennessee and Northern Alabama. They have an ongoing commitment to excellent service and exceptional quality. When Legends approached Brindley Construction with the opportunity to renovate their restaurant in Columbia, Tennessee, we knew this was a perfect match.

The project began March 2020, with a complete demolition of the interior of the building. Upgrades include the installation of all new woodwork, wainscoting, flooring, and bar area, as well as a complete renovation of the kitchen and restrooms. The exterior of the building features stacked stone columns, exterior insulation and finish systems, and new paint. The entrance to the restaurant was relocated and the exterior upgrades included new paving, sidewalks, and landscaping. The architectural drawings, provided by George Nuber, really led this project.

Project Manager Jeff Brindley and Superintendent Matt Johnson worked closely with Legends’ owner Johnny Fleeman during the 8-month design-build project. Time was the biggest challenge. We worked closely with the subcontractors and materials suppliers to ensure the project remained on schedule. Budget was also an issue. The design-build team—the owner, the architect and the Brindley team—worked hard to ensure the project came in within budget.

This was not an easy feat, given the pandemic and the challenges we faced: carefully scheduling manpower, resourcing supplies and materials, and keeping our job sites as safe as possible. Hand sanitizing stations were put in place along with providing the crews with protective gear.Legends Steakhouse Renovation | Columbia, TN | Brindley Construction

“The project was completed on time, on budget, and in the end, the owners shook our hands while telling us that they couldn’t have been happier with the project…that says it all to me,” says Project Manager Jeff Brindley. “We feel fortunate to have worked with such a great Owner and the team here at Brindley Construction congratulate the ownership and staff of Legends on their stunning, new facility.”
