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.

Fun, Happening Place

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night. They were having a car show outside in the parking lot. That was fun but we had to search a little for parking. They had a 3 piece band playing in the "porch/deck" area. This was packed. We had to eat in the main dining area. We had a shrimp... read more

Went for lunch or brunch on a Sunday. Dockside had nice views and was covered to protect us from the sun but had nice breeze. Food was good and atmosphere was pleasant with everything from families to bikers. Had a fish basket but did see the breakfast plates which looked good.

We visited the Pilot House on a busy Friday night. The service was excellent. Our server was brand new but still did a really good job. When she did not know the answer to our questions, she quickly found the answer. First the seating- the restaurant has an indoor area that is completely enclosed. Most of the restaurant is indoor-outdoor.... More

This restaurant was extremely busy and close to our lodging, making for an easy drive and back. Classic seafood from A-Z and the service and quality of the food was very good.

We went there on a Tuesday night. Get there early because it gets busy. We ate on the porch. The server immediately brought fish food for the children to feed the fish. They can feed them through a grate in the floor , under water is lit or off the docks. They have live music. We sat right in front... More

Food is a little more expensive than other area restaurants but you can dock a boat and walk in. Nice atmosphere & the food was good.
