Went with 2 other couples in December 2016. Good friend said it was his favorite place. Had to wait for more than a hour but we spend the time walking around and having drinks somewhere else. The wait was worth it. Went with the friends recommendations. Calamari appetizer was awesome, had a burger and that was good also. Eat out... More

We were in Mt. Dora for a memorial service and wanted to have a nice lunch prior to the service. We picked Pisces Rising from TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The lunch menu has a nice mix of salads, sandwiches and entrees. Lots of seafood. Everything we had was fresh, well prepared and delicious! Great shrimp & grits, jambalaya,... More

Awesome dinner, drinks and live music. Very happy place, we loved it. Reservations are only needed if you wish to eat indoors not for the patio. There is a full bar inside and outside. Waiters and the service was magnificent. A must visit when in Mount Dora. A bit pricey but wonderful.

Nice view of the lake; service was good, but food was mediocre. We had the fried fish platter and the quality was not as good as other places I have eaten. That being said, some of the other entrees that other diners were getting looked better, so maybe it's just that dish. Also, there is a very small parking lot... More

Four friends were visiting Mt Dora and stopped at the Pisces Rising for lunch. Oh Boy the Shrimp and Grits are to die for, three of us had them and one a daily special fish sandwich. The view from the patio of the lake was delightful, service very good. I advise anyone who is a fan of Shrimp and Grits... More

Having dinner in a restaurant can be problematic on a major holiday night, and I often avoid it. However, I was in Mount Dora with friends for New Years weekend and decided on Pisces Rising for a late dinner on New Years Eve. To our surprise, in spite of the large crowd, the restaurant staff was up to the task.... More

We've eaten at Pisces Rising a hundred times, we're locals, have always ordered and enjoyed Bananas Foster, with table-side presentation. This visit, there was no Bananas Foster with the banana liqueur. It had been replaced with Plantain Foster with tequila. Almost didn't order it, but tried it anyway. The plantains were hard and sticky after preparation and the sauce definitely... More

The highlight of the evening was the service we got from Mike, the bartender, and his drinks. Beautifully crafted old fashions, with his homemade cherries. (We are old fashions snobs) The food was very good; we had the Caesar salad which was .... well, a good Caesar salad. The Cuban rolls (could use a little bit more Cuban and less... More

Nice location and extensive menu, mussels are delicious! When asked for more bread, the waitress says $4 extra. Shrimps salad, same extras are à la carte for more bread! Steak was ok! House red is ok. Will not go back. Expensive overall !

It has become one of our favorite place to dine, dance and enjoy the sunset. The food is also very good with a variety of choices from ribeye, fish, duck, and burger. The live music and dancing on the deck looking over the sunset and the water is priceless.
