I've only been there once, but it's not because I don't want to go back. It is a little further from my house than some of the other places I go to more frequently. My women's group went there for our Christmas luncheon. The ambiance was very stylish yet relaxing and comfortable at the same time. The food was excellent... More

This is our place for special occasions! The food is always great and the service has always been excellent! We have had people tell us its a bit pricey BUT you get what you pay for and we have always felt we get our money's worth!

Very good fine dining experience. The staff is top shelf. Thursday is steak night and both the filet and ribeye are fantastic -- the ribeye has a great flavor and is cooked to perfection. Best of all the free bananas foster come if you have steak. The stuffed sole is also very good also. The lobster bisque is only ok,... More

Always enjoy the Legacy Restaurant when we go there. Great bar , nice atmosphere if you have to wait. Went last night, a Thursday, 6:30pm, said half hour wait, we were seated in about 15 minutes. Very nice menu, several specials available, and great Harris Ranch Steaks. Two had the filets, one had the salmon, I had a great 1... More

My husband and I visited Legacy on the last night of our 10 day vacation and I'm so very happy we did. Up until then we hadn't had any meals to rave about. Legacy changed all that! The service was delightful, the surroundings were pleasant, and the food, specially the beef, was fantastic! It was a bit pricey but well... More

Crowds have died down and you can actually get in now without an hour or so wait. Surprised we almost had restaurant to ourselves.

Both the food and service can be quite spotty and it's overpriced for the quality and the size portions. The decor is dated as well. This used to be a terrific restaurant for special occasions. Now I prefer to try somewhere different

Try to visit Legacy every chance I get. Outstanding steaks (Harris Ranch) and great Bourbon Salmon. My two favorite meals in The Villages. Also my favorite app is the crab cakes and the Legacy soups. Try the mushroom Brie, truly yummy.

I visited The Legacy Restaurant while on vacation with my family. We had a rather large party of all ages (youngest being 1- oldest 70). The happy hour drinks were awesome & the prices were unbeatable. The calamari appetizer was superb! It reminds me of the calamari at Ruth Chris. It was very tender, not fishy tasting, and the sauce... More

This is a sure bet when gathering to celebrate any type of function. We have attended three Anniversary parties here recently and each time have been pleased with the service and food.
