Enjoyable meal

We went here for brunch today. The blueberry mojitos (a special item for the day) were good, but a little too sweet. I had a special blueberry barbecue bacon burger with gouda, which was great. My wife had the chicken and waffles sandwich, which had good flavor, but was a little dry because of the... read more

We arrived 45minutes prior to our reservation time and had cocktails at the patio bar over looking Lake Dora and listened to some excellent live reggae music. Our table was ready right on time and the four of us were ushered to a table on the upper level just above the food prep area and also with a view of... More

I am a New Englander who has easy access to fresh seafood. I was recently visiting in central FL and asked the locals to suggest a good seafood restaurant. Pisces Rising was named several times so I checked it out! What a treat!! Our waiter Clay was a total class act without being pretentious. The food was fantastic, not a... More

A nice location, with view of Lake Dora, nice interior, and live sax player for Sunday brunch. The poached eggs with crab cake and tomato bisque were both very good, as was the shrimp mac and cheese sandwich.

Good food and live music out on the deck at Pisces Rising in Mount Dora on Thursday nights! Currently a decent blues band playing that got people up and out of their seats. Matthew gave us excellent service and made some good wine recommendations. Will go back!

This place used to have great fish n grits and excellent service. Went there last Sunday and the service was awful, the fish n grits was half the size it used to be. The shrimp were good but where did the big bowl of grits go to. My wife's fish was room temperature. Shall I go on.

Food was fantastic even though a bit pricey. I got the sea bass on risotto and thoroughly enjoyed it. Dessert was banana creme brûlée which was different than what I expected. If you are looking for high end dining for a nice meal then try them out.

We brought a group here of 9 because we have been here so many times for lunch. The view is spectacular, the views of the sunset unmatched, the outdoor patio is bustling. But I think when it's busy, it's a bust when it comes to the food. Out of 9 of us, 7 felt their food was overcooked. Three had... More
