Excellent Happy Hour

Stopped in yesterday afternoon after golf for a drink and snacks. Sat in the bar area which has many different, comfortable seating arrangements. Happy hour was in force so we all enjoyed a cocktail - average cost $3.00!!! with bar snacks - no food for us. Service was extremely slow, but there... read more

While on vacation my wife and I have been eating out for 2 months and this will be one of only three that I will not forget. The "cup" of crab chowder was excellent as was the warm lobster salad and my shrimp/scallops with risotto which I brought back 1/2.. Regrets, yes, there was no room for a dessert. Usually... More

It isn't a wow place but food is good and seating was good. The web menu and the real menu are different. Not for children.

You can depend on them for a great meal and good service. The trout dinner is excellent. The guys love the meatloaf and pork chops. Legacy also has a wonderful lunch menu.

We thought the filet was delightful and the macadamia nut grouper was excellent. Flowerless chocolate cake was delicious.

We hadn't visited legacy for awhile and were most happy to find that the food is still exceptional. We started with salmon tartare, lobster and steak special and finished with a delicious peach/raspberry desert. It's good to have restaurants near us that offer a wonderful array of dishes, pleasant servers and relaxing ambiance. Keep up the good work.

Our wedding anniversary night. What better place to celebrate - none. We knew what to expect and were not disappointed. Surf & Turf night served by Javier (who has to be the best waiter ever) wonderful appetizers (escargots and calamari) a beautiful Malbec. Coffee and a brandy. .....what more could one ask for?

I fail to see why people are willing to wait for two hours to eat in the Legacy Restaurant when there are so many other restaurants to go to. There is only a limited amount of seating outside and drinks in the bar are not inexpensive. I thought the food was "good" but not the most phenomenal I've ever had... More

Good food and good service. Very nice atmosphere. Good for a special occasion. A little pricey for every day dining.

We came here to celebrate an anniversary of friends. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. Even though this country club venue is very pretty, the feeling is casual. Javier, our waiter, was so professional and helpful, we felt like royalty. The tilapia was outstanding as were the other dishes ordered at our table. They gave us a slice of yummy... More
