Reading the reviews for The Palm Tree Grille has to amaze one. The Management at this restaurant continually blames it's Customers for reoccurring management & internal problems, or answers legitimate concerns with; "I'll get back to you" or, "....that's not the story I heard". Really? The bottom-line is they seem to have some issues they need to address and WORK... More

Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback on the Palm Tree Grille. Yes it does have a great location in the center of town and is perfect for people watching. Especially this time of year with the nightly Santa Parade going right by us! It can get a bit loud as we are at capacity most... More

Our party arrived on Sunday around 5 pm without a reservation, we were seated promptly in the bar area which was very cozy. This was our first time visiting this restaurant. The menu is very interesting with pasta, chicken, fish and steak. Drinks arrived promptly, as well as appetizers. The tables are quite small in the bar area so 4... More

Thank you so much for your articulate review of the Palm Tree Grille. Glad to see you like the menu, it is updated every few months and our daily specials add even more to choose from. The lounge is a favorite for people to dine in but the high top tables are a bit small for parties of four or... More

We always enjoy our meal, wine and specialty cocktails here. We appreciate emails from the restaurant alerting us to special menus, and the "Burger and Brew" at the bar is great

I visit Mt Dora quite frequently - have eaten at the Palm Tree many times over the yrs- my last 2 visits were not pleasant. I was there during the last craft festival in Oct and I was treated very rudely because I was dining alone. I was told by a young man that they could not serve me because... More

What an overall lousy experience. I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance. Called 5 days in advance to confirm. When we got there 30 minutes early, I was told "we were not supposed to take reservations" on this night. But it would be 45min to an hour. No problem. A similar party walked in ahead of us and were... More

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...

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
