My wife and I got in one more getaway before the end of the year to Sandwich Mass. Had a great time and on our way home, stopped at the Pilot House. My wife and brother in-law had been there several times, and raved about it. What a great atmosphere, view, bar, and the food is great and really nicely... More

Again we stopped by to the place we Loved so much two months ago. The care they are showing is so much why we and so many people come here. The views are great BUT the FOOD is what people come for. The style is "Cape Cod Fresh" but this is the whole package . Great food with Great service;... More

Oh god , do I love their swordfish ! They have a great reasonably priced menu ,and a nice view of cape cod canal . You may also watch the fishermen going about their business . My wife enjoys several of their entrees . Only one waitress to avoid , most are very good and the waiter is excellent !... More

Took four members of my family for dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Everyone (5) chose a different entree and was very pleased with their food. I thought my vegetables were a little too crisp and my son's prime rib appeared rather fatty. Service was excellent however the ambience was a little disappointing, probably because its way-off season. On balance... More

Went to brunch on Sunday with a couple friends. We were greeted right away by the hostess, but chose to sit at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and efficient. The drinks were fantastic. Everyone's food was excellent. I am definitely returning to this hidden gem.

Started with the Portuguese littleneck and mussles; Just GREAT. Had on of the BEST LOBSTER ROLLS EVER. Sweet and so fresh. The service is caring and on the spot. Since the new owners took over this restaurant a little over a year ago things have turned around and now it is a true gem of Cape Cod. If you go... More

Have been by several times in the last year but the restaurant was closed until we tried a couple of weeks ago. We sat at the bar for lunch and adult beverages. We had crabcakes, a Portuguese mussel and littleneck dish and chowder. The mussel dish was the star although it could've used a couple more of each of the... More

As in most cases, one must make advance reservations if they want to be assured a Thanksgiving meal at a restaurant. Unfortunately, we were too late to reserve a seat on the dinner train out of Hyannis. But, I am very satisfied in our second choice! My husband and I decided to go to the Pilot House as our second...

My husband and I have returned to the Pilot House on many occasions, over the summer and fall, and they have indeed stepped up their game. My first review for the pilot house said that they had great food and horrible service, but they have redeemed themselves. Sometimes the food is hit or miss, like the lobster salad wasn't as...

If you live anywhere on the East Coast, you should make a trip to Sandwich MA and visit The Pilot House located right on the Cape Cod Canal...the portions are more than ample (always have to bring more than half of it home), the staff is more than friendly...they become your family...and if the fish were any fresher, you'd have...
