Wow! What a restaurant/bar. The first thing that greets you is a floor to ceiling to wine display! We went in to have a quick afternoon glass of wine, but ended up with a fantastic appetizer and a specialty drink we asked the bartender (Chris) to prepare for us. Chris already knew the recipe and provided us with a perfect... More

We traveled to Mt. Dora for my husband's birthday. All our meals that weekend was a treat to him. We chose Palm Tree Grille for a nice enjoyable lunch. And it was so refreshing to be waited on by such an informative waiter. We asked for his suggestion of his favorite lunch. He recommended such a tasteful meal. We both... More

The Palm looked a like a little more than we were looking for at first glance, but our innkeeper at the Magnolia Inn had recommended it. We were a little hesitant after reading some reviews, but thankfully we went with the majority not the minority. We got the garlic and goat appetizer...it was very good, but could have use a... More

This is a slightly edited version of the review I posted around April 12th. It was taken down. I am not sure why. There are many untruths in the Palm Tree Grill’s manager’s response.

After multiple attempts to post your negative attack on this and other websites, I see that one was finally accepted and posted. The others being removed and deemed disturbing for good reason as they were more a personal attack and witch hunt than an intelligent review. Let’s start with the facts and not the fantasy of what was posted online.... More
