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.

Look honey! There's a fish under my seat! And the food is good too!!

A great "friends" type bar right on the water, the Pilot House in Key Largo has the best views in town. Imagine sitting atop a glass-bottomed bar area watching the fish below you in an illuminated area... or looking out over the railing onto the water. This restaurant has the perfect waterfront... read more

No linen tablecloths or fancy silverware, but 5 of us had dinner there last night. We had 5 different entrees and everyone enjoyed the meal.

Old, dated, and perhaps a little bit creepy, but the food was truly fantastic and our server was exceptional. Kids love it. . .

Average at best. Service okay, drinks were weak and the food was okay. The stuffed crabmeat was not flavored well and the conch chowder had a tomato taste.

Friendly and efficient service, good food and a nice marina location. Well worth stopping here. Even saw some fish through the see through tiles in the floor. Lobster mac n cheese was fantastic. No 2 son liked the conch fritters which have a spicy twist.

We will always come back to The Pilot House restaurant on the marina. We sat outdoors and enjoyed overlooking the boats and the glass bottom floor. We played island music while we ate fresh food. I ordered the Portobello mushroom burger which was great but messy to eat. Great service. Excellent iced tea. Couldnt be more happy with this place.

My husband and I and a dear friend traveled from Miami to Key Largo. We stopped at the Visitors Center for a recommended restaurant and we were told about the Pilot House. What a wonderful setting and great food! The service was great and friendly!

This is a great waterfront restaurant with excellent food and warm and friendly service. Although I have been here before, I think the quality of the food has improved. This is a fun place that is worth a visit while exploring the Upper Keys!

We live in the Keys are are regulars at this establishment. The marina setting is relaxing, just like the atmosphere of the restaurant. They consistently offer quality, fresh seafood at a reasonable price and the service is excellent. The staff, servers and management alike, are friendly and seem to enjoy what they do; highly recommend!

I first heard of the Pilot House years ago, from my Dad, a National and Pan Am pilot and the only thing I remembered was they would cook the fish you caught. When I finally visited the spot I asked if they still did that and our waiter told me they did (hook and cook) if it wasn't too busy... More
