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.

We had dinner here. I had the grilled scallops platter and my husband had grilled shrimp. Both were very good. The scallops were cooked perfectly (many places overlook them and they can be rubbery). The fries were hot and delicious. The cole slaw, however, could have been a little crisper. The portions were not huge, so if you have have... More

This is a nice restaurant and very popular, and for a good reason. Their food and service are both top notch.

Nice outdoor location at the marina, but they insisted on seating us indoors since we had a large group, strike 1. Strike 2, most of our orders had something wrong with them, rice and not potato, fries and not onion rings, etc. Strike 3, the service was poor. Not sure if it was our group of 18, even though they... More

We come here every year while visiting the Keys and have always loved it. This time, abit of a disappointment. The good - oysters were excellent, very fresh. Fritters were also very good and mojitos were fairly priced and freshly made, not a mix. The not so good: App's were served, we had no plates. Server said she'd get them... More

It was a nice atmosphere eating out on the dock. It was a nice evening. The conch fritters were really good. Good size portions but the food at Key Largo Fisheries was just as good if not better. They had a really cool floor that you could walk across at the bar and see to the ocean floor. The kids... More

Good service and the food was fresh. A 'local' place to eat. Not at all disappointed. Don't go expecting anything from the glass bottom bar. Not sure why they even mention it. Our first night for dinner in the keys. Disappointed to find out smoking is allowed. We aren't smokers and it was not pleasant sitting next to people who... More

We had a great dinner at Pilot House! The food was delicious, and the menu had plenty of local catch highlighted. My kids loved the glass floor panels that viewed the fish swimming beneath the docks while we dined. The staff was very accommodating of our dinner party which included a sleeping 3 year-old in a stroller, and our German... More

Relaxing atmosphere with the view over the water. Our waitress was outstanding, catering to all of our needs and more. I ordered the chicken taco and the sauce on it was to die for. Great place to bring family too and just to have an overall great meal and great time.
