Love this place. Best food and device around. Their steaks melt in your mouth. In over 12 years here we never have had a bad meal. Always delicious!

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.

The steak was exceptional and tender.... Best fillet in a very long time....service by Vinny was sub-par.... He was not pleasant... Did not take time to listen to our questions... Seemed like he just... 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.
