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.

Comfortable, relaxed, delicious, consistently good

Friendly waitstaff. Always a new seafood special. Every dish had been delicious. We have been there several times before on vacation. They never disappoint. Fair pricing for amazing food. One of best places to eat on vacation for a lovely dinner or lunch experience.

We are locals and the food is average, price is far, best part when guest come visit is to get oatmeal and feed the fish through the glass floor over the bar. Bar has super strong drink pours the later in the night you go.

This is in keeping with the laid-back atmosphere of the Keys, but doesn't have the manic drinking and noise that some places have. It is clearly frequented by locals and has a great outside bar and tables. The inside is air conditioned and has a lot of seating and a separate bar. The place is located on a small marina--the...

Every restaurant in Key Largo was in chaos on Mother's Day, so we headed to the Pilot House where the tables were clean, the server was attentive and the food was excellent . The pilot house is consistently good and never disappoints. Even my mother was happy!!,

Our family group of nine, including two small children, enjoyed an early dinner here. Hostess seated us in a large booth far enough away from the live music that we could hear it without being overwhelmed. Kid friendly, with crayons and a color-by-number sheet. Margarita was average; 30-somethings got theirs with an inverted Corona. Walked with the grandkids to look... More
