Went to Merrill's for lunch in order to eat with friends. Not being a native of Mount Dora, was not familiar with this establishment. Evidently it draws a rather faithful crowd as most of the main dining room was filled to capacity. Ate on the patio overlooking Lake Dora which is pleasant enough, although the music was too loud to... More

This is a great restaurant right on the water and has outdoor dining, a outdoor bar and semi-formal indoors with a bar as well. The food is very good. They have live music sometimes that I love! Fantastic views...especially sunset!

Our 2nd trip to Mount Dora and Pisces Rising was on our must go list. Hot Saturday afternoon we settled into the bar and were greeted by the lovely bartender, Melissa. Such a sweet and warm personality she made it a special afternoon for us. Melissa's Lemon Drop Martini is delicious! And because we were celebrating our 25th First Date... More

We wanted some seafood while staying near mount Dora so, after reading some trip advisor reviews, decided on this restaurant. We went early and the air conditioning either wasn't working or had only been on for a short time as we were unpleasantly warm. Folks were gathering on their outdoor bar and eating areas as they were having a band... More

The outside bar is comfortable even in the heat with many fans. The bartender was on her game. Bottle beer $2.50 and a martini in a greatglass for $4.50! Nice view of the lake too! And delicious burgers perfectly done!

Recommend if you like a great selection of beers and drinks. Prefer sitting outside on the patio overlooking the lake or at the outdoor bar. Try the mussles and clams apetizer. Incredible broth in the bottom of the bowl.

If you want a wonderful dining experience in a restaurant built around a house---you'll love Pisces. The owners use to have a place in Key West and they casually stay true to their roots in Mt. Dora one of the best towns in Florida. Only thing is Mt. Dora has a reputation that it is more like New England than... More

The atmosphere is classy, the food excellent. You must try the crab cakes! I had paella and it was an ample serving and my husband ordered shrimp and grits. We sampled each others plates (of course) and both were fantastic. Our waiter was attentive, and right on time for everything. He informed that our meals were being plated, brought plenty... More

Have to say that I wasn't impressed. I had eaten here several years ago and remembered it being much better. I was told that this place was still very good but it has slid a little. They have an awesome location in Mont Dora with a nice view but what we got was over priced average food. No one in... More
