Nice early dinner

Stopped in Mt. Dora for an early dinner & cocktails on the way back from Disney. Came here as it's rated #2 on Trip Advisor & wasn't disappointed. I had the soup of the day & crab cakes, & my honey had the pork chop special. We both enjoyed our meal & our cocktails - margaritas. Our server... read more

Went to the Goblin Market yesterday for lunch. Second time going, and the food was as amazing as our first visit. Definitely worth the trip!

The restaurant was fairly busy last Saturday night, and reservation was needed. The menu was varied. The escargot was very good, as was the rack of lamb. The Flounder was somewhat dry and not fully flavored. The service from the kitchen was slow, and several tables near us were very annoyed, and tried to leave before their main course finally...

We love The Goblin. It is quaint, homey and offers wonderful food. Our party ordered the duck, New York Strip, shrimp & scallops over pasta -- which were all fabulous. The folks who ordered the duck said it was the best they had ever eaten. I have dietary restrictions which left me to order the gluten free black bean chili... More

We go here about once a year and it has been consistently good. We had the strip steak and the char entrée. Thanks for the good service Tony.

Service was excellent! I wish I could recall his name...perhaps Steve? He knew the menu inside and out and did a great job explaining the specials. I had the flounder Ceasar and it was wonderful...fresh veggies, homemade dressing, fish cooked perfectly. The atmosphere is unique and cozy.

This is a very special restaurant. We have eaten there twice in the last few months. The food is outstanding and the presentation is as well. We had one of their specials as an appetizer this time. A savory cheescake, and it was outstanding. Could have had it instead of a meal. Really flavorful! My wife had the lamb chops... More

We have eaten here almost every year for a long time as well as last week during our spring trip to Mt Dora. This year I had French onion soup that was good but not great, tasted like it may have had some sugar in it? All entrees our party of 6 had were very good although service to get... More
