Regulars are greeted with joyful enthusiasm. Our party of five agreed, there was no enthusiasm at the front desk toward us although many others were greeted enthusiastically Towards us, more an attitude of "we'll get to ya when we get to ya." Seated at a five top in the noisy bustling first room of three tables and two lines of... More

What a wonderful place to dine with friends, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion or want to impress visitors. I love the Mushroom Brie Soup!!! I ordered the Herb-Crusted Chicken with mashed potatoes and shaved brussel sprouts. Delicious. My dinner with the soup and a soda came to over $27, but it was worth it. Service and atmosphere...

Based on 4 or 5 prior visits to this restaurant, we selected it as the place to have dinner with part of our family before they leave the next day. As always, the Legacy lived up to its reputation except for one little item. For the prior visits, my favorite dish was lobster pillows which were outstanding and before leaving... More

Our waitress who was promt and courteous took our order. We ordered an Oysters Rockefeller appetizer to share. There were six in all and delicious. My wife ordered the rack... More

Went with the family the Monday after Easter and this place was fantastic. Great service, prompt and the food was wonderful. I mean really great food. Don't miss this place when you visit the villages. Make a reservation as it get crowded.

Our waitress Dawn was rude,obnoxious,and overall poor. Her manners were below service standards. Food was okay. Nothing to rave about. Will never return again. Will try other restaurants...
