“Very Lively”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Visited this restaurant on our first night in Mt. Dora. We had watched the sunset with a glass of wine from Maggie's Attic and noticed this place. Large bar and live music on the front porch. We ate inside and could not have happier. It is a beautiful old Florida Building with gorgeous tile and shuttered windows that you find on old Florida buildings. Very nice bar along one side. We were seated at table across from the bar but on the dining room end. We were welcomed by the Chef Gandia and our server was Rein. The food we enjoyed were the crabcakes, the pork and black bean spring rolls, The Salmon and the Shrimp. Fresh Strawberry Foster for dessert! Don't miss the food or the fun while visiting Mt. Dora.

“A pretty view seating out in the patio, excellent location...”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We made a quick visit to Pisces Rising for appetizers and drinks, everything was excellent, from the Bloody Mary, the wine and the pork and vegetables egg rolls and service all around...our table was out on the patio with a view of Lake Dora, very relaxing ambiance!

“Lunch on the deck”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

From the deck, great view of the lake, live music and great waiter. I didn't consider the luncheon menu pricey. My cuban sandwich was excellent.My cousin had the fried shrimp basket which she enjoyed.

“Great Seafood and Entertainment”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Visited here recently on an evening when they had live entertainment. We went indoors for dinner which was DIVINE! I had their crabcakes which rival any I've had in Baltimore! The "porch" is where the live music is staged with a wonderful bar. There is plenty of outdoor seating, and dancing room should you have the desire. I ordered their Margarita, and didn't care for it. . . . sent it back for Sangria, which was Heavenly. Their Margarita is typical of most served in Mt. Dora, very salty, and not much "bite." I think I'm more used to the Margarita's served up north. Other than that, I would go back in a heartbeat, and highly recommend the place. The service is impeccable and the view from the porch is incredible!

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

One of Mount Dora's finer restaurants, and the best place in central Florida to watch the sunset. Having said that, the food is average fare, but on the pricey side. You are paying for the ambiance. Cool place to have a drink or two, listen to music and watch the sunset over Lake Dora.
