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.

Nice local place

On the water next to a Marina. Off highway one going South. Nice bar area and the food is good. Floor is done so you can see the water. Nice locals and some staff has been there a long time. Fish Taco are excellent.

Yes, fish can be viewed through the floor of the outside bar. There is plenty of outdoor seating, but if the heat is too much...go inside where there are plenty of booth seating and table tops. The cooks are good and the food is good. We have had to wait on a few occasions, but this place gets cranking with... More

We had the rehearsal dinner for approx. 60 people at The Pilot House. Mark was fabulous, made sure everything and everyone was taken care of. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Everyone commented on what a great time they had and how much they enjoyed the food. We have eaten here several times and will continue to... More

Off the main drag it is more of a locals place I think located at a marina. The views are fantastic as you sit right on the water and can watch the sunsets from your table. Service was good but the food was just mediocre. Wife got the fish tacos which she said were great but my steak salad was... More

Food was pretty good, service was pretty good but $19 for a dozen itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny oysters was a little bit over-the-top. Order anything but the raw oysters and you'll be fine. Also.. Great Key Line Pie!

Right on the water a little soft music and a great server. Food was just wonderful. Black bean and some wonderful Mahi. Can't beat it for the food and the music if you eat outside.

If it wasn’t for enjoying all the dogs (the 4-legged version) at the bar at The “Pet-Friendly” Pilot House, I doubt we would ever return. We had really liked this restaurant when we visited here during summer 2014, but we now realize that our previous server (Brian from Pennsylvania) had much to do with our satisfaction. We should have requested... More

Our waitress was excellent. Gator fritters undercooked but flavorful. My son had a cheeseburger and enjoyed it. I ordered a Mahi sandwich ($13) which was a mistake. The "sandwich" was a huge Kaiser roll with a paper-thin and way over-cooked shaving of Mahi. Think: beer coaster sandwich. If you want fish, I'd avoid this place for seafood and go to... More

While visiting friends in Key Largo, they took us to lunch here. The restaurant is on the harbor surrounded by boats. The only downside was when a boat pulled up and we had to smell the exhaust fumes until the owner turned it off. We were eating outside and it wasn't a pleasant smell! Otherwise, the seafood was fresh. I... More
