It " Was " Nancy Lopez Restaurant " however it is now referred to as LEGACY Restaurant since the Suleiman Family took over the lease.

My mistake referring to it as Lopez. Tel 352- 753-1475

It was never the "Nancy Lopez Restaurant". It started as Lopez Legacy but Nancy took her name off it only months after it was open. I presume for liability reasons. John McDonough, owner, had to have menus, license, website and signage changed a long time ago. It's been just "Legacy Restaurant" for many years. Still is.
She licenses her name, and gets a fee, for the Country Club part only, which is separate from the restaurant business.

For geographical clarity it has long been known as The Legacy at Nancy Lopez CC.

This nit picking has to stop!

OK I stand corrected...The bottom line since the take over the " New " Owners have now made it an outstanding place to go for a quiet pleasant evening out.

PS: I have nothing to gain from my opinion of this restaurant.

Miz Kathy's Sweet Shop on 301 in downtown Wildwood is an excellent choice.

Heavy on the DARK in some parts of the restaurant - great food, expensive, not too far ... good recommendation.

While I agree that places like Southern Cotillion, Rose Plantation, Chop House and others are fine restaurants, they do not seem at all like what the OP was asking form. They tend to be noisy, crowded, and/or bright. Music?

Got to high praise the Rose Garden Resturant! No shorts or tee shirts, beautiful old Florida home, good food and ambiance, worth the trip to Fuitland Park!
