Default Nancy Lopez restaurant

We went to the Lopez restaurant for the 4th time this year and the food was as great as it was the past 3 times. We went 3 times for dinner and the 4th time was for lunch. A few months ago at dinner I had the beef filet which was the best beef I have had in years! Very tender and delicious. This past visit was for lunch and out of their very extensive menu I selected pecan crusted salmon with a slight maple glaze. It came with rice and green beans and carrots. Everything was perfectly cooked and wonderfully flavored. I am not a fan of many of the country club restaurants but Lopez really stands out as my favorite.

I agree. We had a great dinner there last night with friends. My wife is one of those with the unfortunate birthdate of 9/11, so we kept it low-key. Only downside was when we got back to our car, there was a love bug sitting on the hood daring me to try to squish it!

For years, since it was built, Legacy Restaurant (NOT Nancy Lopez Restaurant) was the most popular and high class place to each in The Villages. It was run by John McDonough, who seems to have disappeared before he opened his second location in Ocala. Strange.

not quite sure what point you are making. Strange is your post.

By far better than the others, The Suileman family that owns it, has a gem of a Chef and a staff to prove it. The best wait staff too, we were there last night, I had the Chateaubriand which was wonderful, my wife had the almond encrusted haddock with shrimp, on our table of 6 all ordered different meals and all came out piping hot and tremendously tasty. The House Manager Michael is also terrific, they have this one running as it should. The setting is also great. We are VIP’s at both Havana’s and Nancy Lopez and really have a favorite which is The Legacy at Nancy Lopez.

I agree, a little pricey but it’s worth it.
We usually only went there on special occasions, but wish we could go there once a week but our income couldn’t afford it. Palmer was the next best!

I've never tried Lopez/Legacy, but I plan to...

So far, Palmer has been my favorite of all the club restaurants...
