    The food was really good. The unfortunate part of our dining was our service our waitress seemed to not care or maybe didn't want to be there last night either way. We expected more out of our service. We live right behind the restaurant and love dining at Ovations. We've had great service before with a different waiter so I know it can be done.

    Didn't cater for my needs adequately. I am a vegetarian that requires gluten free options. The only thing on offer was salad and vegetable tacos. The salad was OK. The tacos were bland.

    Service and Food was delicious. However, unfortunately the menu that is listed here on Open Table for Ovation's in Davenport Florida is completely wrong and offering dishes that they don't actually offer, prices are quite a bit lower than what they're actually in the restaurant. When I brought this to the attention of the manager he had said he didn't even know that Ovation's had a menu out there and that he would notify his boss of this. I would have been more disappointed and a little mad if I went there ordering something from the online menu and realizing that they couldn't accommodate us. Our French Onion soup as an appetizer was delicious but was $1.60 more than online menu price. We ordered the Steak and Ribs "delicious" it was a 6oz sirloin and 1/3 rack of ribs a side salad and a side, we chose sweet potato. That meal was a bargain at $21 and definitely worth the price for the quality. Also a little side note... If you want bread and butter for your table, you need to request it.

    Service was attentative and all of our meals were very good, delivered promptly without auctioning off the food (in other words, server knew who order what and placed correct order in front of the appropriate guest). Pricing was good for the amount and quality of food received. We had a very diverse party and there was something on the menu for everyone. Would recommend if you are in the area.

    Eat here often but this was worst experience ever! Waiting 30 minutes for appetizer and was cold and then waited 30 more minutes for it to be redone. Then waited a while for dinner. My salmon was beyond dry like it was under the warmer a long time. It took 2 hours to eat there ! Very disappointed!

    This was our first time eating here. The food for the most part was very good. The nacho were excellent made with thin potatoes as the chips. The brisket was good but dry and the ribs were eatable but over cooked. Chicken fingers great. Pork chop was good. What made up for not excellent food was the excellent server Jason and when we return we will ask for him personally. He was fabulous.

    Flatbread my wife ordered was cold. Lobster Mac n Cheese had no flavor, seemingly no cheese and no taste. They did remove the cost of the flatbread which was good of management.
