We went here for dinner, and sat in the middle of th resturant, the noise from the room actually made it difficult to talk. However the waiter was very nice, in fact he joked about th noise. The food was plated well, and looked appetizing. It was bland in taste. Best of all the wine. We will return again, but... More

We had a great lunch at Legacy on Easter Day. Their Easter menu had a choice of a multi-course meal. All courses were top-notch delicious. We had the Short Rib, Halibut and Lamb. Courses we had included Deviled Egg w/Prosciutto, Crab Bisque, Main Entree, Desert. With the Main Entree was a delicious scalloped potato side and outstanding Asparagus. Pricing very... More

First off, let me say that this restaurant is still my favorite in the Villages. BUT, what is happening? We went there last night at 8:05 pm, ok that's late for the Villages, but they advertise as being open til 9. We ask for a table for 2. The place is obviously emptying out for the evening. We're told to... More

Stopped to visit Legacy restaurant and sat at the bar for a bite to eat. Pleasant service on a busy afternoon during spring break. Food was tasty and well priced. One annoying bar patron was a bit loud with his conversation and exaggerated his golf play, lol. Hope to be back soon.

Friends were in the area and had time for a visit. We had to take them to Lopez Legacy. We also realized that we have repeatedly done this when people come to The Villages for the first time!

We generally have dinner every Thursday evening with our daughter, son in law and sometimes another couple. This particular week we decided to visit The Legacy. It was our first visit, but not for the other couples. We were pleasantly surprised with the food selection, the service and the quality of the food. It was extremely tasty, somewhat pricey and...

We went here for Christmas "special" dinner and the food was exceptional. Filet was perfectly cooked to order. Our group had no complaints and the atmosphere was delightful with decorations and music to include live carolers. Service was terrific. We will be back to try a non-holiday.

Great restaurant with excellent food. A little on the pricey side but you know you are going to get a delicious meal. I got the Scampi Alfredo and it was more than enough for two meals for me. Two others having dinner with me got a special for the day, it was swordfish with a sesame/ginger glaze. They both loved... More

We came here on a Monday night for the Lobster tail dinner special. My wife had the twin tails special and I had a New York Strip Steak. This time of the season is the test for these country club restaurants. The amount of "snowbirds" tests their experience dealing with huge crowds. The wait for a table was 20 minutes... More

We get to make it there 1 time every 1 to 2 months. We like the escargot better than Palmer's (6 vs Palmer's 5 and sauce is better - Palmer's put their 5 in a mushroom cap). The duck is absolutely wonderful (some crispy pieces, but not leathery like in some other places) as it was moist and very tasty.... More
