Well, if you liked the Chart Room over in Red Brook Harbor in Cataumet, then you will love the Pilot House Restaurant overlooking the Cape Cod Canal and the Marina. Great food, great service and great memories are for the taking....

The bar staff is great - Patty\ bartender, is amazing....Pilot is my favorite on Cape Cod. Recently I had a white bean lobster soup in a red broth. I am not one for creams and butters and this was light and perfect. Loaded with lobster. They offer a salad with grilled Scallops and I never had a problem. Just wonderful.

This was our first time there since it became The Pilot House. We went for Valentines Day. The inside including the staff are the same. They had a prixe fix menu as well as specials and their regular menu. I was a bit disappointed with the rules on the fixed menu as in at least 2 required to order and... More

Love the location, love the staff, love lunch, had one good diner, but had the worst diner I have ever had last Saturday. Chowder had the consistency of wallpaper paste. It was anyone's guess how long it had been heating and how much flower they added to it. The scallops had the consistency of marshmallows and as gad as I... More

One of the best things about the Pilot House (formerly Aqua Grille) is its location adjacent to the Cape Cod Canal and the Sandwich Marina. The enclosed year round wraparound porch is relaxing and offers nice views. In the summer months outdoor seating is also available. It also has a welcoming bar area which is great for munching on appetizers... More

The food is usually great. Not to impressed on New Years Eve. Ordered rack of lamb, 25 minutes later the waitress who was very nice said they ran out of lamb. The table next to ours ordered 3 orders of lamb after I ordered and they got lamb. Either the waitress put the order in too late or no communication... More

We started our day at 4am and traveled from Fl to spend the holiday with family in Providencetown. We had dinner reservations so we just wanted a light lunch to hold us over. There were not many places open on Thanksgiving so we were excited when we found The Pilot House! We were greeted by a not too friendly hostess.... More

This place is great. They have a see thru bottom bar where fish swim. Also the entertainment is great! There was a of lot of fish on menu as well as other things. Good to go at night.

We're surprised by some of the reviews done earlier. Everyone in our group was very happy with our choices - swordfish, salmon, shrimp, and crab cakes - all cooked perfectly. The food was delicious, creatively prepared and presented and the service was personal and excellent. We will definitely go back. Enjoyed the entertainment (piano player), too.

We were on the way to a rental on the Cape. Most of the restaurants were closed but the nearby fish market told us the The Pilot was open. The location on the Canal is the best the thing about the restaurant thought the waitress was very friendly and efficient. Though it was near 2:00, we were not initially seated... More
