Dined here on Labor Day 2014 late afternoon and the restaurant was not busy - we were very disappointed. The food was bland - both the mashed potatoes that came with baked stuffed shrimp and the shrimp & scallop scampi. The pasta with the scampi was overcooked and the stuffing for the shrimp over seasoned. No bread was brought to... More

We went with a group of ten on our first night in Sandwich, MA, and really enjoyed our time there! It was hard to manage to bring perfect food orders to ten people at the same time, but the ambiance of the place, the live kareoke (sans words to follow!), and the friendliness of the waitress more than made up...

Went there with friends. Mediocre meal. Entrees that were ordered, fish tacos these were made with mahi, fair flavor not much too them. Shrimp and scollop linguini, lacked flavor, Ceasar with lobster salad, overall this probably was the best dish, LARGE portion great flavor not a lot of mayo.

The wait staff was great and the view nice. However, I expected better with the food which overall was average.

We went for dinner on a Friday night and they were out of everything that I ordered. From the beer to the Waquoit oysters to the Swordfish the waitress came back and said we are out of that too. The service was not very attentive and it was a good 15 minutes each time she had to come back. When... More

Tried this restaurant for lunch and again for dinner. The food is terrible. The fried food is nothing but breading, the fish dishes are dry and tasteless. The service is fair. 4 of us were served a hot meal while our 5th companion looked on for 10 minutes waiting for her salad. And don't bother calling in for a reservation.... More

Pilot House used to be Aqua Grill and it lives on with good food and EXCELLENT views of the CC Canal. We ate there on Tuesday evening quit busy and our server Lorraine was superb despite the fact she had 6 parties that we could see. Always observant of the needs for each of her groups without bending to ask.... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner Monday night and loved it. Our waitress Cindy was fantastic! We normally sit at a bar rather than a table bc a server can quickly make or break your night. Cindy was polite and attentive but not overly "checking in/ rushing" us bc we were in late and I'm guessing her last table. We... More
