Enjoyed dessert here kind of late in the evening on a Thursday in July. Happy to see that there was a "flourless chocolate cake" option and to my surprise, it was DELICIOUS!! Our waiter, Clay, was delightful and full of helpful and welcome suggestions. The decaf coffee was prepared fresh, just for us. The restaurant appeared to be clean and... More

Pisces Rising has something for everyone. A great deck/patio including an outside bar and, often, live music. Great sunset view over Lake Dora. Inside, there is another bar and very nice table dining. The menu has everything from appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, flatbreads and full dinners. I have enjoyed their burgers and their seafood entrees on several visits. One of my... More

On a Saturday night around 9ish the place was packed, especially out on the more causal deck where a band played great oldies ("Take Your Hat Off"). Inside (air conditioning!) was a bit more formal, with our waiter immaculate in his starched white shirt. Jeff had Cuban Spring rolls and crab cake appetizers and I had the fried shrimp dinner,...

Went there for our anniversary dinner while on vacation in Mt Dora. Atmosphere is great. Alex the bartender/server was very attentive. Small menu but dishes sounded inviting. We had the 239 salad, paella croquettes and seafood paella. Everything was delicious. There is a really nice outside bar but unfortunately the night we were there is was raining out. Can't wait...

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Ordered the sweet potato bites and tuna tartare. Both were really great. The restaurant offers a nice view of the lake with plenty of outdoor seating with a live band. It seems to a favorite of the locals. Would recommend and would return.

Having only moved here recently, I'm still discovering these great places, last night it was Pisces Rising. Great bar. Cold beer. Friendly bartenders. I didn't have dinner but what saw being served at the bar and surrounding tables, I will very soon. Handsome Chef too!

The service was the best and I feel the most important part. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. I wish I could remember her name...maybe Melissa or Stephanie but all seemed great. The food was delicious...the focaccia bread with the Mt. Dora olive oil was great and the Seafood Paella was full of flavor and worth it. Great place... More

Very disappointed in Mt Dora this trip. I had been there a few times for events and once at Christmas. Great Christmas lights. But I just wanted to get away or a few days and went there on an unplanned trip. Pisces was OK but not as good as in the past. Place was dead and the wait staff seem... More

During our first trip to Mt. Dora we decided to try Pisces Rising out after all the positive reviews, but we were disappointed. The menu is very limited and there are few seafood choices. The prime rib was ok, but the whipped potatoes were not seasoned at all - which would have been easy for me to fix had they... More
