“A surprising find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Deciding to spend the Day in Mt. Dora, my husband and I, along with another couple, spent the good part of the morning and afternoon walking through town and shopping. The other couple with us had a small dog, and I have to admit that I have never been in such a pet friendly city. When a gentleman and his wife overheard us trying to make up our mind about where to eat, he recommended Pisces Rising. He gave us directions which led us near the water and the tracks. What a surprising find. The luncheon menu was varied and we decided on splitting an Island Chicken, which the waitress did without any question. the other orders were the Key Largo fish sandwich, which also could have been splits for the size of the serving, and the Crab Cake Sandwich. All were delicious and all were $15 or less. the homemade chips were outstanding. the waitress was very attentive and provided us with our meals in a timely manner. In addition, she provided a bowl of water for our dog without our asking.
The view of the water was also delightful. Although indoor dining is also an option, we ate on the patio. The food, service, and location make this a stop one should not miss.

“Dinner and sunset on the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

After a delightful lake cruise, we walk 50 yards to this restaurant that overlooks the lake. Service was prompt and efficient and the food was great. Get the fresh flatbread with olive oil. We'll be back.

“Great ending to a wonderful arts & crafts festival!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We were vendors at the Arts & Crafts festival in Mount Dora, and after packing up, totally exhausted, we needed a great meal to re-energize after a long weekend of great sales. We chose this restaurant, and were very glad we did. The food was great (New York Strip), cooked perfectly, and our server, Jessica, made sure that we were taken care of. Were seated upstairs, but had a great view of the sunset. Nice atmosphere, and will definitely return on our next visit!

“Poor Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We have been to Pisces Rising before and have really enjoyed it, this trip the food was as good, but for once the service while we were sitting outside was poor, the waitress was aloof and when we asked to move inside as the sun was burning us the waitress Stevie was less than pleasant as she took us to our new, the waitress Amber who took over was much nicer and very attentive.
A pity the experience has put us off going back as the ambience of the place is usually fantastic.
Food is always very good.

“worst paella”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Having eaten paella in many countries including Spain and France I found this restaurant's dish to be extremely tasteless. The poor quality fish, shrimp and 'tough as leather' calamari didn't help either.
Service was extremely slow. How they manage in Snowbird season - I do not know!
