    Flew in from out of state and met friends there for dinner and to watch the playoff games in the sports bar/lounge. The food was excellent and the atmosphere fun but not too noisy that you couldn't carry on a conversation. Great opportunity to choose between the sports bar for more casual dining with the same menu or the more formal dining room. Either way, the food and service were very good. We will be back next time we are in Florida.

    If the success of your dining experience is based on the environment of a restaurant, then Vince Carter's fills the bill. The decor was classy but not stark or snobbish. The food was mediocre at best and over-priced. We could have gone to a local smaller non-chain restaurant in Port Orange where the menu is varied, the prices are reasonable, and the service top-notch for about 1/2 the price we paid at Vince Carter's. However, some folks may be more concerned with ambience and "being seen" in a higher visibility restaurant. If this is the case, then Vince Carter's would be a good choice for them. As for us, we'll stick with excellent quality food at a reasonable price and dine with the "locals".

    We had reservations for Christmas Day. When we we arrived we were not greeted with a "Welcome", or "Merry Christmas"! We were welcomed with "It doesn't matter what time your reservation is for, it will be at least an hour wait! The receptionists were very stressed and I asked if they overbooked. A receptionist said they were told to overbook and this was the result. We finally got to our table 50 minutes later. The one thing I came to eat for my Christmas dinner, was the Prime Rib. After we all placed our orders the waitress came back to tell us that they were sold out of Prime Rib and that they would give us Rib Eye's and they ran out of those, so we got fillets. We were very disappointed to say the least. Not a good evening I'm afraid.

    I would probably not go back for a holiday occasion. Limited menu and understaffed. Food was OK, but I am a vegetarian. The pasta dish offered was not good. I ended up leaving it. Seated quickly, but our waitress had a large table of 10+ that was leaving- filled again while we were there, and our service suffered. Food came out slow, and we waited 20+ minutes just for drinks- add that again for bread (she was packing up all the food for the table leaving, and then serving drinks and taking orders for the next large group). Food came out pretty quickly after but another 15 minute wait to get the check. Our waitstaff tried hard (working nonstop) our the dinning experience put a damper on our holiday dinner.

    The experience was good. The only thing was the cooks and staff in the back kept getting our food preparation requests wrong. So our food had to be sent back a couple times. They did give us a couple things on the house to make up for it. Overall experience was nice!

    Dined on 11/28/2013
    The food can only be described as average and mundane and far higher than average prices. I had the New York strip steak which was average . I also had the creamed spinach that was about the same as stouffers frozen . My friend had the fish with rice average . The Mac and chesses was very good but a small portion . The bread served with dinner was a mix of white rolls the type Publix sells and corn bread . The corn bread was yummy but served cold . The dining room was lovely as was the rest of the restaurant . The hostess was almost rude in her not caring attitude . Our waiter was average . This restaurant is priced too high for the service and the food . We were disappointed .

    Went for Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey and ham were wonderful. Well cooked and moist. The prime rib not so much. It was well cooked, but he cut of meat was sub par. It had fat running throughout the cut, both large and small veins. It was also tough although it was cooked medium and was pink throughout. The lobster bisque soup was fantastic. The sides were mostly fine, but the stuffing was not to our taste. It didn't taste like traditional stuffing, more like it was corn meal based. Servers were wonderful and attentive. The piano player is a gem.

    We loved the ambience and feel of the restaurant, the food when we finally received it was good. Unfortunately all this means nothing as the service was while friendly, was so so slow. We sat at the table for 20 minutes before we were greeted by our server. He took our drink orders at this time, it then took another 15 minutes to receive our drinks (30 minutes to get drinks), which were incorrect. Our dinner order was take at this time. It took another 10 minutes for the correct drinks order and have the drinks at the table. The food then took another 30 minutes to be served, while a second round of drink orders given 10 minutes before the dinner was served didn't arrive until 10 minutes into our dinner.

    Sat in bar area, great service, friendly staff. Steak was delicious! Do feel prices are too high overall however. 3 of us came to $95 and that was with 2 sweet teas and 1 water, no dessert. Looked for cheesecake on menu. Dessert list leaves much to be desired. Overall, it was a place to experience one time. Won't go back only b/c of cost. Would recommend though!

    This restaurant has given up, poor service and average food that is two expensive. Food was brought to us with missing ingredients when the server was asked about the meal she brought out the missing ingredient on the side in the same sauce but a different color and flavor. I'm very unimpressed with the service and food of this restaurant.

    This was my first visit and I regret not being/going there sooner. The food service and staff were great. I was given a thorough walkthru of the location while awaiting a friend to show up. Multi purpose and theme rooms. One bummer, that you had no control over,, a heavy downpour created a run through the rain, Perhaps a small supply of umbrellas to get me to car, and then me dropping it off at the entrance door, as I leave. I shall return soon...

    We mentioned that fact when we made our reservation. Over a hundred dollars later, when we walked out to the car, it occurred to me that this was never acknowledged during the course of the evening. That was disappointing. As for food, I got the Mahi Gone Bananas and it was overly sweet to the point that I could only eat about 1/3 of it. My husband had the ribs and he said they were very good. We had eaten in the bar area several times and we both concur that that area represented a much better value than the restaurant. We will definitely come back to the bar area and may try the other room again. I hate to pass judgement on a restaurant after eating there only once.

The wait staff and hostess were very friendly and the food was on point. Wasn't too busy when we visited. It was a late lunch and we had made reservations. The server was very attentive and made appropriate wine accommodations as well. The crab bites appetizers could have been better. They were just room temperature. But the entree we had was delectable and fresh. I had the North Atlantic Salmon and it was seasoned to perfection. My wife had the Sirloin and she was satisfied. Will be back real soon.

    The hostess acted like she was walking us to a jail cell. Better greetings can be found at Wendys. The waitress, on the other hand, was very outgoing. So much so that some people might be put off by the "hands on" familiarity. Fortunately I am not offended but I can easily see where some people might be. The food was merely good. Not bad, not great. Some reviews thought the prices were too high but I thought they are about right. Wine list was ok but not great. Service was a little slow since our waitress was also waiting on a wedding party of about 15 people outside. Two hours for dinner is a little long.
