Just finished Valentine's Day dinner at Legacy and I must say it was a disappointing experience. This is our fourth year for Valentine's Day and the food and service were sub-par. Appetizers were not well thought out, my entree was lukewarm and I suspect the dessert was straight out of a box. I can only hope this is an isolated... More

Our first time here; went for lunch; saw a few negative reviews and now can't understand why. Our server was Steve and couldn't have done a better job, his suggestions were helpful, he was efficient and kind. The kitchen prepared our order to perfection and quickly. The mushroom soup was close to the best I've ever had, the beef french... More

Great food and wonderful service. This has to be one of the top restaurants in The Villages. Enjoy just about anything we order off the menu. And the icing on the cake is the great waitstaff. They really take this place from 4 stars to 5.
