Very good food and service

The food is usually excellent at Palmer Legends. However, the noise level inside can be very high - it seems the decor (hardwood everywhere) is designed to

The Arnold Palmer Restaurant has extraordinary and delicious food. This is a more gourmet level of dining, even if you are sitting outside on the back porch. Sitting on the porch is great because you have a view of the driving range and the golf course. As with all of the restaurants in The Villages, the prices are reasonable and... More

Ten of us came here to celebrate New year's eve. We had reservations for the early seating and we ordered from their special menu. We were seated right away and enjoyed a 6 course meal. Most of us ordered the delectable Stuffed Shrimp. Some of us got to take at least 2 of the huge shrimp home. We had a... More

This restaurant has no charm or atmosphere. The archetect really missed a great opportunity in not highlighting the wonderful view off the patio. Dining on the patio would be great if it was a non-smoking area. Unfortunately smoking is allowed, The food is quite average American fair at best. The Villages has many restaurants that better this one by far.

Good menu with a variety of steak, seafood, salads. Server was knowledgeable and had good recommendations. The restaurant feels a bit more high-end than others in the area while still being casual. The bar seems to be one of the nicer rooms in the restaurant with a nice view of the golf course. They also have tables outside on the... More

We have frequented Palmer for 10 years, since it first opened and live nearby. Originally, we would bring guests here for a special meal. Unfortunately, the experience (the food, and especially the service) were sometimes less than should be expected for the price. Over the years, they have not done a good job maintaining a consistent quality and experience. Palmer... More

You won't go wrong with anything on the menu. My favorite is the spinach salad with scallops. I have found it difficult to find good scallops in Florida. These are very good. Only ones that are better are in New England!

If steak is what you are in the mood for, then this is the place to go in The Villages. Your steak will be served just the way you like it and you can count on great quality and great flavor. It may not be cheap but hey, you deserve a special treat every now and then.

At one time Palmer restaurant was THE place in The Villages for a nice steak dinner. It is still OK. The bar area and individual rooms can be very loud; the more open areas seem a bit too casual. Prices are very high, perhaps the biggest negative, as the food itself is above average.
