We dined with friends new to The Villages. The waitress and support staff are in need of training. Our friends order was not as ordered. Sauce for fish was delievered half way thru the meal after complaining to manager. My husband's meal and mine were very good. They did have salads and wine taken off price of the meal, but... More

Very nice place. The staff there is unbelievably friendly. The food is good, as is the service. The menu is unique, the rooms are clean and the atmosphere is casual.

Went to Legacy for a dinner presentation. Winston was our server. He was amazing. He took great care of our group. The food was great too. Unless you live in the area, you might think this place is just a country club. Hard to tell it's a rests when you first pull in.

We went here for dinner, and sat in the middle of th resturant, the noise from the room actually made it difficult to talk. However the waiter was very nice, in fact he joked about th noise. The food was plated well, and looked appetizing. It was bland in taste. Best of all the wine. We will return again, but... More

Courses we had included Deviled Egg w/Prosciutto, Crab Bisque, Main Entree, Desert. With the Main Entree was a delicious scalloped potato side and outstanding Asparagus. Pricing very... More

We went there last night at 8:05 pm, ok that's late for the Villages, but they advertise as being open til 9. We ask for a table for 2. The place is obviously emptying out for the evening. We're told to... More

Stopped to visit Legacy restaurant and sat at the bar for a bite to eat. Pleasant service on a busy afternoon during spring break. Food was tasty and well priced. One annoying bar patron was a bit loud with his conversation and exaggerated his golf play, lol. Hope to be back soon.

Friends were in the area and had time for a visit. We had to take them to Lopez Legacy. We also realized that we have repeatedly done this when people come to The Villages for the first time!

We generally have dinner every Thursday evening with our daughter, son in law and sometimes another couple. This particular week we decided to visit The Legacy. It was our first visit, but not for the other couples. We were pleasantly surprised with the food selection, the service and the quality of the food. It was extremely tasty, somewhat pricey and...
