Welcome to Pisces Rising. Located in Central Florida and established in 2003, Pisces Rising is a celebration of Florida cuisine. Lovingly wrapped around a Florida cracker bungalow style home built in the 1920's, the restaurant overlooks Lake Dora and the setting sun. We bring a commitment to Regional Sustainability. Whether it is our Craft Cocktails from our Jazzy 239 West Lounge to our Chef's colorful creations we shop local where possible, and take advantage of the bounty of the nearby Gulf and the Farms that dot Central Florida up through the Panhandle. By empowering local Farmers and Fishermen, we empower ourselves and future generations.

Particularly enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, but really everything was delicious. Including the drinks. Special kudos to Whitney for the great service!

Ordered the paella with extra fish and got 2 tiny pieces of fish and no sausage in dish. Paid extra 10.00 for fish. The place does give you excellent view of sunset

Food was very good however menu was Very misleading. I ordered pan seared scallops with filet slices. I thought that was what I would get. When server brought food I asked her where the filet was and she said it was shaved pieces of filet....Maybe there were two pieces. That was not what the menu said. They need to be honest. Dish cost 38 dollars and should of had filet slices.More

We ate outdoors. Servers wore masks. Social distancing was observed. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Drinks were well prepared as was the food. Boston oysters excellent. Prices reasonable. Good job!

I went with my friend and have to say the location and live music was great! Unfortunately the food was just ok and our server was not very attentive. I waited for a drink refill over 15 minutes.

After an exhilarating ride on the Catboats my husband and I had my birthday lunch at Pisces Rising. Being a vegetarian and not a seafood eater, high end restaurants usual don’t cater to me. But I had the most delicious vegetarian meal called a cauliflower...roulade that was so amazing I can’t stop thinking about it!! And those sweet potato fries, oh my!!! So different and indescribable! And since it was my birthday I had a chocolate martini!! They about did me in with this meal!! But once a year on your birthday you can go wild, but I don’t think I can wait a whole year to repeat this fantastic meal!!! Go now, you won’t regret it! Thank you Pisces Rising for providing a creative and delicious choose for vegetarians! It is rare believe me!More

An interesting place, right (almost) by the lake in Mt Dora, unique interior, clean, with good service and as expected food. Had lunch here with my wife while celebrating the 4th in Mt Dora, and I appreciated the attention given to Covid 19 - hostess...and all waitresses were wearing masks. Had a delicious smoked brisket sandwich that came on toasted bread, with an even more delicious dressing. And a cold tap IPA made in Tampa. Wife had calamari and we shared my favorite creme brûlé.More

Went hear with another couple after a trip over on a pontoon boat. The marina docks were just down the street from the restaurant. Of course the docks are being repaired during June thru August, so you may have to walk a ways from the...alternative dock just south of downtown. The food wad hat and tasty, and lol four of us enjoyed the prompt service and sanitation and distancing followed on the outside deck. Service was prompt and friendly.More

Yes, there is outdoor seating. No need to dress fancy. Casual dress is appropriate. If you are going for dinner I do not recommend short for men.
