If you want to feel like really special company… ask for Lenise… she is an extraordinary people person! She made every minute of our visit memorable! This is our second visit, with her on duty, our evening was in excellent hands! The food was exquisite…...from a perfect shrimp cocktail… to our expertly prepared and served entree’s! The manager was by several times to make certain we were having a lovely evening! We sure did! Thanks for a wonderful evening… Scott and BonnieMore

This is our favorite country club and we frequently dine here and tell everyone to dine here as well. However tonight was not good. Our waiter was exceptional (Brandon, very personable) but two of our meals came out cold. The manager came to see us...and “offered” to “recook the meals”. Meanwhile, the other three people were done eating which defeats the purpose of eating out with others. Why am I frustrated? Because the manager should have offered a dessert for the error in cooking two meals at a cost of over $26. Have not seen or dealt with this manager before and I am concerned the standards are slipping.More

We traveled 100 miles to meet our best friends for dinner at the Legacy. The food was wonderful and the service equally wonderful from our waiter Steve H. He was so courteous prompt and really made the meal. We’d drive back 100 miles just to...have dinner there if Steve waits on our table. The restaurant was packed with people and we had to wait a bit and Mike L the manager served us champagne in the reception room and was such a courteous happy host. This is the place to eat when you come to the villages, great food great atmosphere and wonderful people working there. Dr ReedMore

Some friends had suggested this restaurant. The person was friendly and accommodating when making the reservation and nicely greeted us upon arrival. The restaurant is white tablecloth and golf view and patio seating is available. It was prime rib night on a Monday; however, we...were not told that you could get an 8 oz instead of 14 oz. My prime rib was overcooked (ordered medium); was about 50% inedible fat, and would have been flavorless except for the aujus. (In hindsight, I should have not accepted this meal.) As a side item, the rice was overcooked with hard pieces in it. The carrot cake dessert was more like spice cake. Two items that I requested from the server took forever. If you want an enjoyable dinner, try elsewhere until this one gets their act together.More

Wonderful meal, waitstaff was very knowledgable about items on the menu. Lovely atmosphere inside but you can also eat on the patio and enjoy the vista of the golf course. We will be back.

Good but not as great as in the past! My husband went for the steak and it was over cooked and my fish was ok, but really on the dry side. Not our night to have a great meal. The veggies were good and the...calamari was delicious. Good service as always and great friend to share the evening with made the experience.More

I don't know. Restaurant has been closed for several weeks for renovation. Since time is short for making Christmas reservations, I recommend you look for other places.
