Richfield Reviews by Nicole Sobania
In this edition of Richfield Reviews I will be reviewing our local American Legion Post #435 located just off Portland Ave. South in Richfield. The goal of the legion is to welcome veterans from all branches of the Armed Forces and all military personnel currently serving our country. However, it is important to note that the legion is always looking for new ways to get the younger generation into the facility to enjoy some live music (every night) and cocktails. It is also important to understand that you do NOT have to be a member to come to the legion, everyone is welcome.
The America Legion Post #435 Experience
When you first enter the American Legion you will find that it has a very relaxed and dive bar feel. However, when you glance to your very right of the entrance you will find a large casual dining area equipped with a fire places and huge windows. The overall atmosphere is relaxed and all of the staff members are very attentive. The chef came out personally to chat with me about the menu and made some great recommendations on what I should order. I ended up ordering a BLT salad with fried shrimp in place of the bacon.
When my food arrived I was amazed by the portion size, it was huge! The dressing on the salad was also amazing, it was a homemade BLT dressing, which was delicious. The shrimp were also lightly breaded and fried to perfection and went perfectly with the salad. The food was amazing! I highly recommend if you visit the American Legion you definitely order food, not only was the taste incredible, but the prices were extremely affordable.
After ordering and eating my salad I proceeded to check out the rest of the building which consisted of a dance floor and stage, in which they have live music every night, a pull-tab room, a general bar area, a game room, and a banquet hall. I spoke to the general manager and he informed me that they are consistently working on updating the facility as well as trying to draw in a younger crowd with live music.
Overall, I know that many of us have preconceived notions about legions, however, it is important to note once again anyone and everyone is welcome and you are sure to have great time with a strong cocktail and live music.
