Vince Carter's Restaurant is a ideal venue for the upscale sports enthusiast. It's divided into the sports grill, dining room, lounge and owner's box, for the personalized atmosphere you desire, and even offers call ahead seating, because that's the type of service they provide - always catering to your needs.
At Vince Carter's Restaurant, you can create your own hand-crafted luncheon burger - made your way - or dine on the Pangasius Fish Sandwich, because Vince Carter's knows that lunch deserves the same attention to detail as do all its other meals. For dinner, the T-Bone Steak is the only way to go if you're massively hungry, but other popular items include its Caprese Roma chicken and the North Atlantic Salmon. The options have considered all sporty appetites, so go enjoy a game and meal experience.
They did not honor the reservation as when we arrived they informed us that they were going to close the next day and as such they had a lot of people coming in for dinner and could not seat us at the time we had reserved.
Our previous experiences were great at Vince Carter's. Made reservation through Open Table for 5 people. When we arrived, the hostess informed us that they were not honoring reservations or walk ins. They were too busy and not allowing anyone. We were very disappointed since we drove 30+ minutes to get there.
Awesome restaurant, but sad to know it is now closed for business.
Nice place, very good food and a great atmosphere, best in the area now closed ooopps
Food was delicious. The waiter was very helpful but had a tendency to become distracted by the tv.
Best Gouda spicy Crab bites and really good lobster bisque
does not honor reservations on holidays . Booked by Open Table and received a confirmation number in return. Needless to say, do not use OPEN TABLE for holiday booking. Confirmation number means nothing !!!!!!
Had to wait an additional 35 minutes before getting a table.
First time dining here. Met family members for a dinner out. Arrived early and had a martini in the sports themed lounge (two lounges, one for piano lovers and one for sports fans). Martini made perfectly and bartender made bleu cheese olives at our request. Once seated, Danny, our waiter, was wonderful. Attentive to our needs and even while attending to a party of 12+ seated next to us and several other tables. We had crab bites very appetizer, great flavor, could have been a little warmer. Salads were good, but had too much iceberg lettuce for our liking. More green please! My brother ordered a T-bone and parents ordered filet mignon. Steaks were cooked to perfection and were juicy and delicious. Ordered dessert, strawberry shortcake with fried ice cream, delicious. My apple caramel "shot" was good, but too much whipped cream. Oh, and Happy Hour runs from 4-7, even on a Saturday! Overall, a great dining experience. Would definitely recommend and will return!
Everybody enoyed the caesar's salad. The grouper was tasty.The filet mignon is on the dry side.
Otherwise it's a great dining experience enjoyed by all. We intend to come back.
Always a great meal and generous cocktails... Our server, Tammy is always attentive, accommodating, pleasant and cheerful. Cocktails are always generous.
Anytime I can sit with piano music playing and swans swimming I am happy!
Very nice off the beaten path experience. We were given several choices of seating which is appreciated.
good drinks at the bar. Our waitress was attentive but the food was a little lackluster especially since it was a special menu.
Just moved to Florida and found this place to meet friends for dinner. It was great and a lovely atmosphere. Definitely would eat here again
I would recommend making a reservation. If you are looking for a nice atmosphere, I would sit in the bar area. The food and service were decent.
Service was excellent. So was most food, but eggplant app was cold and rib eyes were good, but not terrific.
My wife wanted the chilean sea bass which was the special of the night and was told a few minutes later that the they had no more. There were only about 30 people in the restaurant at 7:00 pm. My son got the chicken flat bread which was over cooked. Very dry! We had the server brings some pesto sauce to try to cover the overcooked flatbread. I had the ribs which were very good.
As I have been told many times with this restaurant it is hit and miss by many of our neighbors and that is why they don't go back. This was our second visit since moving here. The first time there everything was perfect. Great experience! They need better consistency to keep people coming back. Have a great menu selection and beautiful restaurant but the food needs to come out right every night.
It was recommended to try Vince Carter's Restaurant but found the food to be quite pricey for what you are getting in return. Our waitress insisted I change my entrée order. I would have been more satisfied to stick with my original order after trying my husband's dish. The Lamb Chop entrée was over cooked to our order and was tasteless. I would like to add that I tried the spicy "slam dunk" crab balls and they were terrible. I found no crab what so ever in this appetizer. It had a bad after taste and was very disappointing. The Thai shrimp appetizer was so bland even the shrimp had no taste. There was a loud X-mas party very close by that tended to be annoying and the noise intruded on our dining experience. All in all I wouldn't be rushing to come back again. The value and the ambience is not there as I was hoping for. The overall bill was $200 for four adults for mediocre food. I would have preferred to stay at home and cooked dinner instead.
Great Happy Hour!
We've met friends at Vince Carter's numerous times for dinner. Last Sunday everything was fine for half hour then suddenly a band started playing and people were dancing. That's fine but we couldn't hear anyone at our table talking and it was impossible to give our order to the waitress. We asked to move to a quiter place where we could have dinner and conversation. Luckily we moved outside and had a very nice dinner and were able to hear each other. The dining room was where we always sat and always enjoyed the booth, room, food and conversation. What a shock to have a very loud band start playing and causing such a problem.
We found this gem by accident. Wow, superb dinner. The steaks were excellent, service impeccable, overall just terrific. The wine list is extensive and we enjoyed a terrific bottle of Caymus. I have ordered take out numerous times as well and everything has been on point. I had the pleasure of meeting Armando De Leora , the General Manager-he is beyond gracious and is just a class act. We will make this a regular stop. It is refreshing to see such a place here in Florida of the caliber of a NYC restaurant-which is where we live. I highly recommend this restaurant. They absolutely aim to please.
We went there for a birthday celebration (two couples) The food was absolutely wonderful, as was the service. We'll definitely go again next year when we are on vacation in Daytona again.
I live here in Port Orange and heard mixed reviews about this restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service, and wonderful food. I am thinking of having my office holiday dinner here! Highly recommend!
If you like dinner watching sports in TV this is your place!
I made reservations for my boyfriend's and my anniversary. And needless to say we were both impressed! This is definitely a restaurant I could see us going to more often whenever we're in Daytona.
We dined there Labor Day weekend, Sunday night. It was almost empty, considering how big it is. It was interesting to see how mostly everything was on a semi upscale level but, when we asked for something to take our uneaten food in, the server brought us your typical gas station, flee market white plastic bag with the red thank you on it. Thats not a good look:((
Terrifically run restaurant...Outstanding cuisine....and professional staff and management. Doreen Woodfall
The wide array of menu options is perfect for a large group with varied appetites. Great customer service.
First time there & we were not disappointed. The burgers were so yummy & the service was good. We found the prices reasonable for the quality of the food. We would certainly recommend it to our friends. We will certainly come back. Bob & Vivian
Best ribs I ever ate.Everybody at our table had a different entree.six of us . All were very pleased.come down from Indiana one month a year Will make several visits a year.
First of all three in our party were treated to room temp. Soup.
Second the bread didn't come until half way through our soup and salads.
Had creamed spinach as my side and had it sent back to be reheated.
Finally I personally find it quite irratating when the waitress comes to the table and boxes the leftovers of those who are done eating while others are still finishing their meals.
My wife and I were expecting to have a great dining experience and according to all the reviews it was set to be just that.... It started of great. Prompt and good service but one the food arrived the problems came also... my wife order the filet mignon medium well and it came out rare... the took it back and brought it back out 5min later burned...Basically putting the same meat back to cook longer and messed it up... My glazed salmon was far from glazed and had no flavor.. poor experience ant Vince Carters
Our waiter was right on point. The ambience was beautiful. The food was delicious I ordered garlic chicken tortellini with broccoli and spinach. It was out of this world... Definitely would go back. It was very reasonable priced
After visiting here several times a year since 2010 this was our first truly disappointing visit. Our part of four arrived at 5 PM while the restaurant was nearly empty. We ordered quickly but serving of our entrees was slow. First problem was one we encountered with every visit: margarine is served with bread; butter can be obtained only with repeated insistence. This needs to change immediately! My wife and I have eaten in restaurants all over the world and never encountered another restaurant that server margarine as standard fare. Chintzy.
My wife and I both ordered their best steak 8 ounce filet mignon. Both our steaks arrived overcooked. Our server volunteered to return them for new ones but we declined because we didn't want to further delay our guest whose meals were fine. I simply asked our server to feed back this info to management. Another unsettling observation was the fact we didn't see one familiar face from our previous visit(s). Hight employee turnover is not a good omen for a fine dining restaurant.
My wife hopes they just had a bad day so we'll return one more time to see if we receive a fine dining experience. We will take our own butter to avoid having to beg for it.
I hope my review is taken constructively. We hope to enjoy Vince Carter's for years to come. Key word: ENJOY.
Great food with wonderful, caring service in a beautiful atmosphere. The manager came by twice to
check on us and our waitress was very attentive.
Everyone in our party of four loved their food. Menu has lots of choices from interesting entrees
to sandwiches and burgers.
The wine list was extensive and even the house wines were a very nice quality.
All in all this was a great dining experience which I would highly recommend whether you are looking for a full meal or just appetizers or burgers.
There is also a cozy piano bar and lounge and a huge sports bar.
The dining room is very nicely placed overlooking the small lake with black swan and fountains which operate to an assortment of displays - and our booth was at one of those windows.
The menu was widely varied and the specials offered an extra set of good choices.
My mahi bruschetta special was outstanding: large portion of well grilled fish, wonderful glaze and bruschetta and very good rice. Price was a good value as well.
Wine list had good brand choices - a tad pricey by the glass.
The big problem: despite an almost empty dining room (maybe four active tables, the two different servers were very slow between visits. The cause was a pharmaceutical dinner that was extremely well attended - close to 40 - which means that without proper staff planning, a HARD event to serve with folks who also serve tables elsewhere.
Nice place to go and have been there 10 times in past 2 years! Food and service was good. But Mother's Day was not so good! Piano player was so loud you couldn't have a normal conversation with seniors who are hard of hearing. Next their was a booth where the people were allowing a 3 year old to drink beer and was tipsie. I brought this the the managers attention and he dismissed it with with its there child! So, because of his aditude we will spend our money else where and tell everyone we can how the place is managed. Find a new manager and we will be back!
We've eaten at Vince Carter's several times and really enjoy the ambiance in the "sports" dining area.
The restaurant was beautiful and the food was delicious. The only food complaint is that the potatos were not done.
The ambiance was nice, but the pianist was very loud which made it hard to hold a conversation.
first time there but was recommended by a friend. i can't say enough. everything was absolutely perfect. our server was attentive without being over bearing.. my husband and i want to share a bunch of different things so they split everything for us... without an extra fee (which we don't mind). the food was absolutely delicious. had the eggplant flatbread (best ever) a salad (very large) and the special fish Halibut. the piece of fish was very nice and it was the best we ever had at a restaurant. what can i say.. we loved it. these people know how to do it.
