For a great meal and service this is the restaurant to go to in The Villages, Florida. We go there periodically for the best appetizers and entrees in the area. We go it alone or with friends and family and everyone just "loves" the place. It overlooks the Nancy Lopez golf course on one side as well.

Our golf group met for dinner this evening , a group 32 men and women. We ordered straight off the menu , which us a little unusual for a group this size. The service was excellent, Markus and his assistant in training took very good care of our table. All of our meals were cooked to order and enjoyed by... More

The Legacy is always a great dining experience. Dine there on Father's Day and had a Rib Eye Steak. Service was outstanding. Caesar salads were also outstanding. But, while the steak was outstanding, we did not care for the rub which made the steaks taste more like a rib (to sweet). Was not the taste we expected. Should have read... More

You can only rate what you eat, and maybe things were off in the kitchen, but I have to say this was an average meal , or less, when cold food comes out of the kitchen. We were seated promptly, received our appetizer quickly, and our server gave us all the attention we needed. My entree arrived cooler than it... More

A great place to drop by for drinks and/or dinner after playing 9 or 18 holes of golf. Not only is the golf course challenging but also in really good shape. Try Monday nights when they have the lobster tails special and surf and turf. Good deals on both, good food and the service is high quality. We're regulars and... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always a first class experience. This is the best country club in The Villages that I have tried. The prices are very fair as well considering the quality of the food and service. I have also had group events here as well with excellent results.

We went here for a small birthday celebration for one of our party of four. Unlike during the high season, the restaurant was relatively uncrowded (didn't have to wait a minute over our reservation time), although still quite noisy. Service was slow--had to wait for water, appetizers, etc. and a bit too matter-of-fact (e.g., no bantering or chit-chat). Food was... More

The Nancy Lopez Legacy Restaurant is a first class country club which shouldn't be missed during a stay at The Villages. We had excellent dinners at very fair prices! The atmosphere is casual but this restaurant has the feel of a vintage club rather than that of a sleek, modern facility like the Evans Prairie Club restaurant. Unfortunatley, we did... More

Back again to Nancy Lopez Legacy,a stop we make every year for dinner, once or twice during our stay in the Villages. It is always one of the best meals we have in the Villages. We went on a Sat. evening, during the busy season, we had to wait about an hour and a half, which we knew we would.... More
