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, and salads. The creme brûlée had a hint of citrus. The wait staff were very prompt and the location is very interesting. We will be back!

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 so you have to park on the street and walk a couple of blocks to the restaurant

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 not to miss Pisces Rising.

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. On the whole, the food was good and the service efficient.

For dinner, I had the beet salad and organic mushroom risotto, accompanied by a French rose. The food was excellent and the wine was a good complement. I tried the plantain foster for dessert, but, unfortunately, it missed the mark. The sugar was burned and the flavors did not blend well. In spite of this, we had a good time. At about midnight, the restaurant provided free champagne for whoever wanted it.

I would like to try Pisces Rising again sometime on a quieter evening.
