“Should be great...isn't always the case...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This place has everything going for it: Great location by the lake, fun outside deck area that frequently has live entertainment, fun outside bar area, upscale dining inside. But for some reason, it never seems to live up to the hype. The food is average at best. After dining there a few times, it seems more of a trend than a one-time occurrence. The service is usually pretty good and the atmosphere is good as well. For the price that is charged for food and drinks, the food should be a lot better. At some point, you are paying for the atmosphere and location. There are better places to eat...eat somewhere else then rack up a bar tab at Pisces while enjoying the great location, cool outside bar and entertainment.

“Gorgeous view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Lunch was pretty good, but the view of Lake Dora is the real star at Pisces Rising. Crab Cake Sandwich was tasty, but could have used more crab and less bread. Our tablemates had the sweet potato fries, which looked excellent.

“Restaurant with a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The view is by no means all there is. The menu is an eclectic cross between Cajun and Latin. We were there on the weekend and the band was wonderful. We shared the fish and grits because the portions were ample. On other recommendations we plan to try their grouper dish. Inside nice relaxed atmosphere at the indoor bar

“Great view of the lake and good service/food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The cuban burger is good (pulled port and a hamburger) and a very unique flavor. The outdoor patio is the place to sit and enjoy some music.

“Beautiful Location & View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This restaurant is in the most perfect spot! However the food and service is very average. It's a great spot to go for drinks on the patio, and you will see some fabulous sunsets. But when you eat dinner on the patio, be prepared for cigarette smoke and flies to bother you - yes, flies. I've eaten there several times outside and each time it is a problem. Inside is great! Wonderful atmosphere and fairly attentive service, but the food is just ok. Overall, I do recommend, but it's not my favorite eatery.
