Description: The Pilot House Restaurant is a local's favorite and a Key Largo landmark...
The Pilot House Restaurant is a local's favorite and a Key Largo landmark. You can choose to dine outside at our waterfront Glass Bottom Bar overlooking our five star marina. Then again, if you're looking for a more private experience consider dining indoors in climate controlled comfort. All dining experiences offer a selection of beer, wine, cocktails, fresh local seafood and shellfish prepared a variety of ways, a broad choice of appetizers, sandwiches, steaks and deserts. For the little ones we have a full "Kids" menu.

Just Ok

My family and I visited this restaurant March 22 while on vacation. Very disappointed. As far as the "glass bottom" goes there was nothing swimming around that I could see. As far as the food goes-blah. I had the lobster mac and cheese-very runny. My husband had the beer battered shrimp which was... read more

We really like the atmosphere of this place, the food and drinks were very good and the staff was very attentive and friendly. Great ice cream sundaes! There is a glass floor in the bar. Highly recommend it

No signs on the main road for this restaurant, had 5 locals give directions that didn't work and eventually stumbled on it. Well worth it! Nice setting in an inland marina. Had very good wahoo and grouper cooked to perfection. Evidently doesn't need signs because the place was packed with eager eaters. Have to remember how we left because it... More

Every year we head down to the Keys in November and always make a stop at Pilot House. The food is always amazing especially the seafood paella and the live bands are great. A must stop on your trip if you want great eats and entertainment.

Waited to sit outside and got a high top over looking the marina. Nice view but some people were smoking which was unpleasant. Once seated we were forgotten. Eventually we got our order taken but every part of our meal seemed like an afterthought. Everything took forever to get including the bill.

I live in the neighborhood and the food is mediocre. Go for happy hour and have happy hour shrimp (cheap) order your favorite drink. Great location on the water. Live music daily. recommend it just do not order anything fancy.

If you want to experience a Friday night locals place, go here. Bar seating is limited so it can get a little cramped. I suggest this place during the day. Great Southwest salad and tuna nachos! They don't skimp on the champagne in the mimosas either! DJ, the bartender, will take care of you!

waited to sit outside, was seated then realized smoking was allowed. After going back inside, it was all good. Swordfish was amazing, chimichuri skirt steak melted in your mouth. Crab dip is yummy! Rum cake to top it all off,perfect!
