We ate dinner here with some friends visiting from out of town on a Monday. We walked around Mt. Dora awhile looking at the shops and eventually a place to eat. Turns out that many of the restaurants are closed on Monday and then open again on Tuesday. Fortunately for us, the Palm Tree Grille is open Monday and closed... More

We visit Florida from the UK two or three times a year and Mount Dora is one of our favourite places for a day out. Our biggest problem eating in Florida is that generic 'American' restaurants serve portions far too large for us Brits but we have now adopted the U.S. Senior's method of having food boxed for the next...

If you like Italian, then you have to try Palm Tree Grille! I had the vesuvio - a dish I have never tried before. It was so good, so flavorful! We will definitely be back!

Unfortunately, although the waiter was kind, he erred by allowing a substitution. It was cheese on a burger. When the burgers came out, all three burgers were jacked up. The waiter was apologetic, but the manager came out and scolded us. Told us basically it was our fault for asking for a different cheese. All that was missing was a... More

I’ve read the other post from your table and am looking into this. In 20 years we have never had a situation like this and I am getting conflicting reports on some of the information in this post. I’ll be in touch with more details. Best regards, Joe More

Food had paper cooked into it. Waiter was sweet as southern iced tea. Management proved to be rude. We were disappointed as we were there to celebrate a anniversary of our parents.

My wife and I stumbled upon this place while on our 3rd visit to Mt. Dora. Amazing food! Wonderful service (Chris was our waiter - excellent attention to detail and knowledge of the menu. My wife says he deserves a raise :-) Wish we'd found this place on our first visit to the area!

We decided to eat at the Palm Tree so we could relax inside from the very busy Mt. Dora Craft Show. Lots of other people had the same idea. Our wait was almost 45 minutes. We had never eaten there and someone who was leaving said that the hamburgers were good. There was a limited lunchtime menu...all at same price...probably... More

Yes Craft Festival weekend is quite busy, the city says over 250,000 people come to our small village over the three days. We did over 425 lunches each day and then dinners at night of course so it makes for a very busy weekend. Our small, family owned restaurant (20 years same location) is always prepared for this event and... More

There were four of us celebrating a friend's birthday last weekend and the experience was doomed from the start. We were there for a late lunch, about 2:00. The menus given to us were a mix of lunch and dinner, and one of us received an incomplete menu. After a couple of tries, the server got the menus straightened out.... More

This was our third or fourth time at Palm Tree Grille. Their service is good, their wine list is comprehensive and the food is great. The only thing we did not like each of the times we have been there is that the bread they serve with their goat cheese appetizer was clearly stale and microwaved because it was hard... More

Thanks for taking the time to send us your feedback. So glad you enjoyed the fabulous selection of wine and great food. I'm going to look into that bread for sure!

Service was great. People are friendly This is a nice restaurant in between the little shops in downtown Mount Dora. They offer an above average menu. Thought it was pricey for the way the food was prepared. For example I ordered a soup with a cheese base and it was cold when delivered. I ordered a scallop, shrimp and clam... More
