We ate here during the bike festival...mainly because the manager was so friendly and brought us a menu. Over two days the three of us had a few burgers, which were awesome, pork BBQ and a chicken sandwich. Great new place in town with great management.

My first time visiting the town and we found this place for lunch while wandering around. We ate inside in the bar area, but the outdoor seating and main dining room looked nice too. We had four in our group and everything we had was excellent. The fried shrimp basket, fried catfish baskets were good. The cole slaw had golden raisins which were very nice. The cuban sandwich, which has some special name that I cannot remember, was excellent. The salmon was also good. The best thing we had was the seafood dip with scallops and shrimp. Just wonderful. The homemade potato salad was also a winner. Highly recommended.

A bright new star shines through the waste of the City of Mount Dora's much needed renovation of North Alexander Street, in the heart of the Downtown Historical District. It's the "Pre-Opening" of the new Pine Island Grille & Lounge. After several tries to file a "new business" review with TripAdvisor I am happy to see they just posted it.
By now, most of you have seen all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor about the 'Frog & Monkey Pub', a restaurant I reviewed first, after many great meals there. Now, owners: Suzy and Eddie, have not only produced a beautiful baby at home but, a new restaurant just around the corner at the 'Saucy Spoons' old location.
Totally Renovated: It features a gorgeous, new Bar and huge Dining Room plus, something "Frog & Monkey" never had.... a much needed: 'Wall of Wine'. The decor is chic' and clean filled with bright colors, warm woods and over-sized photo's of Old Florida. We found our favorite Server:"Jacquelin" borrowed from Frog & Monkey to greet us.

You have to be a mouse to read the tiny print on the new "Pre-Grand Opening Menu" but, after squinting in the candlelight, I was happy to see a Key West- Cajun Coast combination of wonderful entree's to include Shrimp & Grits, Gumbo & Rice, Etouffee of Shrimp, Red Beans & Rice, 3 different Appetizers and 5 different Sandwiches from 'Good Ole Boy Burgers' to 'Pine Island Grilled Chicken' to 'Pulled Pork' and a 'Grilled Salmon' on a roll. Gone are the sky-high prices and lack of wine list of the previous tenant: 'Saucy Spoon', replaced with a myriad of multiple choices. For those conscious of their waistline: find 5 Signature salads - all of which parlay the best at Frog & Monkey.
Besides having a baby and opening a restaurant at the very same time, what else could one possibly do to make it any harder? Why, how about opening right in the heart of a MAJOR construction project at their front door step! Eddie and Suzy give 'multi-tasking' new definition! They'll have to suffer for a while till its completed but, you won't - if you have a heart, and a little compassion, use the Dora Drawy Alley to access this restaurant, it will be worth the effort. Don't forget to ask for the coke-bottle Mouse Glasses, (or magnifying glass) till the new menu is printed!!!!

The unfortunate thing about this place is the construction outside it. It seems to have great potential as a restaurant but it doesn't really show right now the interior and the atmosphere were fine they just felt a little under done as well as the menu (just a piece of paper). They are also off on their price point by a couple dollars at least, the food was fine just a bit over priced. If this place can sim
