I recently stopped in for a glass of wine and a light dinner. I ate in the bar area, which I have never sat before. The food, service and seating were excellent. I enjoyed watching the people on the streets. Prices are reasonable. I have not had a bad experience here, and plan to come back soon. If you wouldl... More

We come to Florida every year and we are always looking for new places to eat out. Mount Dora is the perfect place to relax and walk around the lovely little shops. We stopped here for lunch and we were blown away. The steak and kale salad was to die for- the goats cheese crumbled over the top was delicious.... More

Upscale decor, very clean, and quiet. For lunch, I had Royale Burger (beef,fried egg, and bacon). Cooked to perfection, finely seasoned, and with incredible fries. Wife had tasty chicken salad wrap with Cole slaw. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Give it a try.

Always happy to see a customer that notices the quality of the food we serve. That Royale Hamburger is always a huge hit and we are now adding some new additions to the menu that I am sure you will love. I thank you again for dropping by and look forward to serving you again soon! Safe Travels, Joe More

My wife and I along with several friends have visited Palm Tree Grille twice with very different results and perplexing observations. The first visit was good. I highly recommend their signature entrée salad and it was pleasantly presented on a rectangular plate. The wine selection was unique with not the normal wines and a wide range for all tastes. The...

I’m am sorry you had such different experiences with us and I take full responsibility. I will say however, that last week we had a day that could have been much better. That was probably the day you visited. The good news is that we have installed some great new kitchen equipment, all new. Bad news was that it was... More

What looks like a finer dining experience also caters to the average palate. Excellent food and presentation, even the hamburgers. They have a very large beer & wine selection also.

This is nicely decorated wine bar type area and the menu selection was very complete. We had the chef's special and it was excellent. The waitress was a little inattentive, not checking on our entree after it was delivered to the table, not checking to see if we needed refills, etc. We had to flag her down and she ran... More

This is an upscale, yet casual restaurant...much like the town of Mount Dora itself! The staff was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly, sincere rather than condescending for a tip. Dave was our server...will ask for him again. The food was delicious. We were drawn into the restaurant by the scent of delicious food and we're not disappointed. We both chose burgers...traditional... More

I’m thrilled to hear the Palm Tree Grille is your new favorite place to eat! And yes the wine list is the largest and best priced in the area as we set our pricing at normal retail store prices not the typical restaurant high price. We beat the wine shops pricing as well. We can also sell wines, spirits and... More

Good selection of Beers and wine. They have a full bar as well. Dinner was delicious. I ordered the the pasta with shrimp, chicken and sun dried tomatoes. My friend had the shrimp scampi. Both were excellent. The house salad was okay, nothing special, and they were skimpy on the bread. However, our deserts were also yummy. The prices were... More

Thanks so much for the nice review! Fresh seafood is the order of the day at Palm Tree Grille and we have it coming in daily. Our fresh Grouper comes in almost flopping into the restaurant!

I love this restaurant. The retail pricing on wine is unheard of. You mean I can get Camus Cabernet for $75, really? You can't touch that for less than $110 in any other restaurant. I will go back over and over again.
