I started going here years ago when it was Little Joe's Hideaway. It's been really expanded and has a large area outside for dining and an entertainment and dance area. The hamburgers are handmade and large and juicy. The fish and chips and the wings are absolutely fantastic. They have great musicians on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

We always love to end our Mt Dora weekend with coming to this restaurant! Cold beer and drinks, good bar food, our favorite is the chili burger plate! They also have music on the weekends. If you have a boat you can pull up and park and order and eat in your boat. It's a favorite with the bikers.

I recently went back to the Hideaway. Still nice outside lake view with breezes. Definitely the best part of being here. My best advice: Order a draft beer and enjoy the breeze. But, unless Hardee's, Burger King, or McDonald's is your idea of "good eats" , then maybe you should avoid the food here altogether (sorry). Why? Because it's not... More

What a cool little spot right on Lake Harris. Many folks came by boat for lunch. We sat on the dock, had a great view and enjoyed a casual bar food lunch with live music!. I had a Pittsburgh Patty Melt which was tasty, a bit greasy, but good! Lots of birds in the trees, be careful where you sit... More

Fun place to come but haven't really found anything on the menu that is really good. Stay away from the fish sandwich.

The hamburgers are fantastic. Atmosphere on the water is so relaxing and beautiful. The waitress was excellent and attentive. We had a fantastic time cruising in from the water on our boat to the dock.

If you want an outside venue with a beautiful sunset along with good food you can have it all at Lake Harris Hideaway. They have regular bar food menu with a Friday fish fry that is pretty good. The grilled grouper is the best item although a bit pricey. They have good coleslaw and sell buckets of beer. They have... More
