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

Having discovered on our recent trip that The Villages is not exactly a culinary Mecca, (ok we are spoiled in Philly) this country club restaurant is the best if the bunch. The atmosphere is upscale and inviting. The menu offers several interesting choices. Our party ordered stuffed sole, meatloaf, and the marlin special. Everyone was pleased with their choices. We...

My husband and I were the only two in the group who had not dined here before. WOW, excellent food and service. No complaints from anyone in our group. All steaks were cooked as ordered. The side dishes were tasty. We were truly satisfied. This restaurant is best for special occasions due to the prices but well worth it.

Its hard to get in the restaurant on Monday Eves. Their Steak and Lobster is outstanding and there is always a line waiting to get in. Pick another night and you won't have to fight the crowd. All mnu items are outstanding. My favorite is the Salmon with Bourbon sauce...Outstanding. We've been there many times and have always enjoyed the... More

We have been here too many times over the years to count. The food quality, setting, service and variety is always great and highly recommended. We were there recently and my personal priority list is Lamb(of some kind), Veal, Duck or Filet Steak with an appetizer of escargot, which is always great. The service and atmosphere is great and if... More
