    This was our first time at Ovation. The brisket and ribs were excellent as well as the fish dish my wife had. Will definitely return next time we are in the Davenport area. Also great to support a family run business.

    Xavier was excellent and the food - very good! Artisan salad delicious, ribs cooked perfectly, wood fired chicken breast also done well. Place was very busy for a Tuesday night around 7:30pm and I can understand why. Definitely a place to return to again and again.

    Seated at a table that was not clean and without place settings. Took multiple requests to get napkins and silverware and they weren’t provided until after food was served. Appetizers were good. However, main courses were not well prepared. Coconut Mahi Mahi lacked any coconut taste and grilled chicken was over cooked and extremely dry. Cheesecake desserts were both served partially frozen in the center. Overall a very disappointing experience.

    Everything was great except the priority seating. Went for a birthday. Sat 1 hour after time we booked. Server and food was great. I would advise to not even have priority seating. Outside smelled like propane from the heaters so we waited till inside was open.

    From the minute we walked through the door we were treated great with the friendly and helpful staff. Our server, Ariana was superb and very efficient but with a good banter. All our dishes were delicious although extremely filling that we couldn’t manage to finish so any remaining food was boxed up. Overall a wonderful evening and would definitely go again.

    The food and service was great. We requested to sit on the patio and the noise level was unusually loud given that there happened to be two large groups nearly. We still enjoyed our evening at Ovations given that the food was wonderful and outstanding service.

    The mahi was cooked perfectly some tasted quite salty but i forgot the baked potato was heavily salted on ghee outside. Hence some salty fish. Since i can’t have excess salt i didn’t finish my meal. The ribs were good. The brisket was a little dry. Will go back snd try something different

    The prime rib was fantastic. Tasty and delicious. My wife had the fettuccine chicken. The only issue was there was not enough alfredo sauce. Service was speedy. Little too fast. Didnt get the bread until our dinner was there. Bread then salad then dinner But still food was so good...

    Our waitress was amazing, friendly, informative and very knowledgeable of the menus and specials. The house Caesar wedge salad was really good and fresh. The 10 oz prime rib was cooked to perfection, tender and juicy We chose med rare with the house bled seasoning. The waitress never let our glasses empty. Great food and great prices. We will definitely be back again and again as we already do.

    Went to dinner at 5 PM and were seated immediately and waited upon. We ordered from the special Mon-Tues menu. The salad was excellent but the tomato bisque though delicious was not hot. I had the beef brisket and stringbeans while my husband had the grilled mahimahi with wild rice. Both were really tasty ad very plentiful. We both had the house chardonnay which was quite good and the cheesecake, which we took home to enjoy. All in all, a very good meal at a very reasonable price.

    Always good. Free parking including saved spots for pick-ups. Outside patio is pet friendly and even a doggie-menu is available. Live music in the late afternoon. Their happy hour is at the bar and there’s delicious specials. Staff is friendly, every dish is yummy. My favorite is their PrimeRib, it’s the only place I could eat it since I’m not a fan but the chef makes it better than any other place. Highly recommended if in the area.
