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.

Dinner with friends

Service and meal were very good. They are pet friendly and even brought a dish of water out for our dog.

Nice water side restaurant. Sat in the glass bottom bar area because it was slow in the early afternoon. Good food, reasonable prices. Nice place to sit and watch the fishing charter boats come and go. Our waitress was very nice, from Jamaica. Sampled some of the Keys micro brewed ales. Very tasty.

Lovely harbour-side bar and restaurant with a strong local feel. Food was hearty and good quality, and a live band was playing which added to the atmosphere. Very enjoyable evening

Great place, lovely food, amazing atmosphere and sea view. Placed in a marina. You can enter from land or sea. The bar conversations from the local fishermen are priceless. We came last year and were glad to be back again. Highly recommended:)))

I called and was told that the Pilot House was pet friendly. It is not, very disapppointed. There are plenty of pet friendly restaurants down here in the keys.

We stopped for lunch, we had a taco and a sandwich. Both of them had the fish inside deep fried but quite tasteless,only the salsa inside tasted of something (it was hot), the fries were nothing special. According to me it was pricey for the quality of food.

Loved the shrimp Baja Tacos. Great strawberry margaritas too, but I went there for the glass bottom bar. There are a few windows in the bar area to see into ocean but, it was so dark, I couldn't see a thing. The seats on the parameter had more lighting, but nothing amazing. I went in the middle of the afternoon,... More

Seemed like a cool place, great location.. Atmosphere looked good. But upon arrival hostess was as friendly as a dead fish. So not a warm welcome. Kids loved the glass floor inserts!! Food tasted really good, but the portions were miniature while the prices were very high. Tuna nachos were good, but much smaller than other restaurants in the area.... More

We had a great time at the Pilot House. Our food was wonderful and there was a lot of it. My wife and I shared a large salad and a seafood platter. Our kids got real shrimp (not small imported junk) from the kids menu. All very fresh tasting and perfectly cooked and seasoned. Many thanks!
