BAD BAD AND I WANT MY MONEY BACK. My boyfriend drove and hour to go to this restaurant to celebrate our birthdays, four days apart and our anniversary which was the day we went. First we order an appetizer calamari it was 10.99 , which is MORE THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN CENTRAL FLORIDA. It came and it was half an order. They we ordered a bottle of wine 18.00. Then we ordered our dinner and salads, I asked what dressings you have the waitress said after naming four I could go on and on all night. In other words I don't want to say anymore. So here comes the salads, we asked for bread. We were told it comes with the entre as they make the bread at the same time...What have never heard of this before , bread comes with the salads always before the dinner. Anyway ok we said nothing. Here comes the entres and the bread. THE BREAD WAS TWO ROLLS 2" IN DIAMETER. My boyfriend asked for more when we finished this off. We were told IF YOU WANT MORE BREAD IT WILL BE 2.99!@#$%^& wHAT? They charge you 1.99 for each roll that is 2". WE were diqusted and it ruined out night. Oh I wrote to the owner and was told I will answer later as I am traveling . Hum a week later NO response. DO NOT EAT HERE, GO ACROSS THE STREET, LESS MONEY AND THEY DON'T CHARGE FOR BREAD. Ps we had eaten at this rest a year ago,treating our entire family and it was not like this. What has happened?? based on these reviews and our experience they are not long for this world...Next time they will charge for water and butter. We spend 72.00 for two . I guess that is just not enough to deserve extra bread.

Leave this one alone. Good service, but I for one want quality food, and they just don't serve it. Their Italian food is decent, but their steaks are horrible. And their prices are simply too high. You pay for their prime location in the heart of Mount Dora, not the quality of their food.
I will say, though, the service was excellent.

Before I became a full-time student at the University of Florida in Gainesville, I used to be a regular customer at the Palm Tree Grille in Mount Dora, Florida for four straight years! This is exactly why I'm taking the time to write an awesome comment about the quality of food and service youll receive if stopping by to make a visit in Mount Dora.
First of all, I need to clear up any confusion you may have if you've read the comment about the burgers, and especially the service that was received; in the 4 years of eating burgers at the Palm Tree, I never had a single one that was anything less than perfectly sized, perfectly tasting, and perfectly priced. In addition to the burger, you'll receive some of the best fries Ive ever tasted (as a fourth year college student, you can trust me on this). I'm sure there are other sides besides fries, but I was simply addicted and couldnt change.
Now, about the service:
I've known the owners of Palm Tree Grille (MarySue and her husband Arc) for 4 years also. I've met every waiter, waitress, busser, and nearly every employee to ever set foot in the place, and all have been outstanding. Impossible? No... If there's bad service and the owners know it, somebody will lose a job that day! That's simply what it takes to be this damn good.
In addition to burgers, I've tried many other entrees on the menu...Chicken Florentine, Steaks, Chicken Bachi Bachi (?spelling?), and also many entrees from the ""Specials"" menu, which changes frequently, unlike most restaurants I've ever been to (hence, the name ""S-P-E-C-I-A-L-S"")...many restaurants seems to think ""specials"" are everyday items for some reason.
All in all, if you're planning on visiting Mount Dora, stop by the Palm Tree Grille and tell them Stan Flink sent you as soon as you sit down. I'm not afraid to give my name, because the Palm Tree Grille's hard work, and your satisfaction after leaving will only make me look better!

The meat was spoiled.
My friend and I visited the Palm Tree Grill on Sept. 1, 2006. We ordered two CheeseBurgers- one meduim well and the other Medium done. As we bit into it...we both smelled a foul odor coming from the cheeseburger and discovered that the meat was SPOILED. We informed the waitress...she seemed annoyed and a manager never came out. It was the most horrible, disgusting dinning experience I had in my life.
I was sick to my stomach immediately and still had to pay $2.70 for our Ice tea. What a terrible place, spoiled food and horrible customer services. Please print this so that other know the truth and don't just print great reviews. What's the point of writing honest reviews. I reported them to the fLORIDA Dept. Of Health- Hotel and Restaurant Division.

I had the best lunch ever here. The eggplant rollatini that was on special the last time I dined here is to die for. The waitresses were very friendly and gave me a few tips on where to go in town for bargains.
Not the cheapest place to eat but it's worth the extra $$.
