Had trouble deciding from among many unusual offerings for lunch. Sat on lovely patio and had attentive server. Two couples-ordered burger special, crab cake platter, lamb burger, and grilled flounder sandwich. All had tasty garnishes and sides-chutney, fried green tomatoes, pickled strawberries, fried jalapeños. Service kind of slow, so we were glad we had plenty of time. Inside dining looked... More

This restaurant is great - the food is awesome (I recommend the filet), the bar upstairs is hopping, the decor is quirky (think artsy meets library), and the service has always been good. We always make it a point to make dinner reservations here one night during our frequent stays in Mt Dora. It's a great little romantic date spot.... More

We had the same experience of waiting by the front entrance near the bathrooms. No real place to wait and they were very busy !! Found the place by asking on the street and the folks said food was amazing. Host was very genial. Got to our seat and the waiter was initially very friendly and helpful. Took our order... More

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. The hostess was quite frazzled and there is no room to wait really except by the bathroom our outside. Our waitress was nice but a bit scattered, she forgot somethings and got a few things wrong. The crab soup touted jumbo lump but had only a few morsels of crab in it. My... More

We came to Mt Dora to enjoy the Segway activity. We took the early morning so we were ready for lunch. WOW what a fantastic place and a group of friendly people. We enjoyed a delicious lunch along with dessert. All of the people were awesome, Sarah, you are great. Thank you for an awesome time.

Saw a write up in a magazine, but don't recall which one, but we decided to check out The Goblin Market while in Mt. Dora. Even though it was raining and the two adorable patios were wet, the place was quaint. It was busy (it was after 1pm). If we had known there was a second floor with a bar,... More

Tucked away in a side alley in historic downtown Mount Dora, this place is adorable and has some of the best food I've had! The stuffed chicken was outstanding. The exterior is a little deceiving, but inside, the atmosphere is so enchanting.

I had dinner with 7 other friends at the Goblin last night and what a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is wonderful - subdued lighting and quaint. The drinks were good and the food utterly delectable! Mos of us had the Osso Bucco and what a dining experience that was! The service was pleasant and efficient and I would definitely return...

Went with friends to wander the quaint shops and scenery of Mount Dora. We want a nice place to eat that had excellent food and atmosphere. The Goblin Market meets all of the above. We were told to try the Irish Wiskey Onion soup which did not disappoint. I had the potato crusted fish

We've eaten at the Goblin several times; there are various seating options including an intimate outdoor patio, main dining area, and upstairs at the bar, which features a small-plate option. The food is always outstanding and the wine list is fabulous.
