Beautiful location on Lake Dora, but make a reservation...especially if you want to catch the sunset! We only had dessert as we were not able to get in for dinner. It seems to be a little more upscale than other places nearby. Bananas foster, prepared table side, YUM! Key lime pie was also a treat. Service wax top notch and... More

$45 Steak was ordered medium and came out rare or maybe less than rare, sent it back then it returned rare to medium rare. $22 Seafood Paella was supposed to be "A mélange of scallops, shrimp, mussels, Cedar Key clams, crispy calamari and fresh fish prepared in the classic Spanish style" which was ordered mainly for the scallops and there...

Good here is good, with nice outdoor seating. Lunch is mainly salads and sandwiches, with some fish dishes. All four of us enjoyed the food and the calamari and mussel appetizers were quite good as well. The only downside is that the music was really overwhelming (and not so good) when it started in the late afternoon. Go early to... More

They are still working out new menus and seeing what will work, but it has so improved from what it had become. It is... More

Popular for its outdoor terrace bar and restaurant area, Pisces Rising has a wonderful view over the lake facing west so enjoys the most wonderful sunsets. This is a great location to take a break for lunch and if lucky you will have front seat as the old steam engine passes by. Lunchtime menu was varied with sea food, sandwiches,... More

Nice outside deck and large bar for relaxing at the head Lake Dora. More of a fun spot to hang out with freinds then a good reasturant. Food is good to fair, but you will love the drinks. Many wekends they have really good live music and some dancing. Come on over with fun on your agenda!

This place has a great ambience and location. A very wonderful place if food was better. We've been to one alongside Potomac River on GWParkway where location was great but .... When ambience and location matches food, a miracle occurs like Inn of Little Washington in Virginia. Am not expecting to be that but why not try to improve. Perhaps... More

Great atmosphere, live band, beautiful view and tasty menu. Delicious seafood. Cheery wait staff. You have to wait a little to be seated if don't have reservations.

You can choose either of two restaurants at Pisces Rising, the outdoor, seaside, casual, friendly, loud and breezy watering hole or the reasonably elegant indoor spot, with several rooms and lighting subdued enough to make you feel as if you're having an intimate night out. Or you can start outdoors and then move in. Outdoors, there's often music, various types... More
