There are few higher end restaurants in Davenport. If you don't want to brave the long lines at Manny's Ovation is an option. Good food and atmosphere, interesting cocktails a bit on the pricey side but there is outside seating.

Great spot, but get there early or make a reservation. Have been there 4 times and will return again this year when we are down in March. Lots of options on the menu. Prime Rib is excellent. Service has always been good.

Went for lunch. Never heard of the place before going there. Great service, nice abeyance and great food. Small criticism my wife's chicken was not cooked enough. Medium rare should apply to steak only.
