Great Friday Night Meal

Friday nights they offer a mixed grill which is shrimp, crab cake and lobster tail. All 3 were flavorful and served hot, which I love. We first had the lobster bisque which was excellent. Service by TJ was superb. All in all, excellent choice and would love to come back.

I could not even cut... More

I have been a fan of this restaurant since it opened about 12 years ago. The food and service are always up to expectations.

Excellent menu, great service, friendly country club atmosphere. The Honolulu Fish Company seafood entrees are always very good. The Black and Bleu bonnie-in Ribeye is a favorite. If you like duck, the roasted duck basted with fresh squeezed florida orange juice and grand marnier is fabulous.

Had the pleasure of finding this restaurant after arriving late in the Villages(9:00pm). They seated us and we were lucky to be served by Javier. Wow, his service, personality, knowledge, and recommendations were outstanding considering they were about to close. We were never rushed and the food was outstanding!! Definitely a 5 star experience!!

This is the best restaurant in The Villages. The food is always good and the service is also very good. Management trains the staff and it shows. I have never had a bad meal at Legacy. Their lamb chops are the best.
