Amazing food and ambiance poor service

Enjoyed a lovely meal this evening... Food was outstanding..... Our party ate the blackened tilapia in a risotto which was fantastic! The sole was perfectly cooked... The steak was exceptional and tender.... Best fillet in a very long time....service by Vinny was sub-par.... He was not pleasant... read more

All their steaks are excellent, whether you want it very rare or well done! If you order steak you get their dessert free of charge. One of their top starters is "Lobster Al Forno". Service was fast and efficient. If you don't want to wait a long time, come very early or late!

The Legacy Restaurant at Nancy Lopez Country Club is our "go to" place for special gatherings of friends and acquaintances. The food is exquisite and the table settings superbe. But the service is extraordinaire! Our first time at Legacy, one of our number wore a thin shirt and indicated he was chilly. Without a word, within minutes the manager and... More

All of the food is very good. They usually have a very good lobster tail special on Mondays. Good drinks and good desserts. Very nice menu and wait staff.

This is a very nice restaurant at the Nancy Lopez Country Club. The restaurant is very nice with the golf course next to it. The food was very good and the atmosphere was great. We had a group of 20 and had to be seated at three long tables. The price was a little high for me, but worth it... More

The food is always excellent, and so is the service. We have a Frequent Diner card, which allows us to make reservations, and we use that whenever we have company. I especially like the rainbow trout, but my friends love the filet!

We always enjoy lunch or dinner at "Nancy's place." Good service, good food, excellent atmosphere. We especially enjoy their special dinners.

You may have to wait for a seat, but it's well worth it. Lobster dinner, veggies and potatos. $24.95 and great service by a professional and friendly server! If yo prefer just one tail you can add a delicious filet. Sur and turf! Same price, it doesn't get any better.

My husband, sister, and I drove up to The Villages to visit with a childhood friend of ours who suggested that we meet for lunch at the Legacy Restaurant. What is there not to like about this restaurant? The building itself is so pretty...reminded me of Mr. Roarke's place on Fantasy Island. The menu selection was fantastic; the service was... More

Legacy has a charm about it that reminds me of the south and sitting out on the veranda's with a mint julep . . . . they have a very nice bar inside. The food is always good and their Monday night Lobster Night is great.
