We were hungry and thirsty after the drive down to Cape Cod from our land-locked town. The Pilot House Restaurant & Lounge provided us with fresh, well prepared and tasty clams, scallops and scrod (plus, a beverage to slake our thirst) Pleasing nautical décor matches the locale and what you should expect from a seafood restaurant. Although busy, service was... More

The pilot house food had always been outstanding but now with the addition of the tiki bar .. Creates a fun atmosphere. All patrons are given fleece blankets if there is a cape cod wind and a very festive setting for an evening meal. Whether inside or out the dining experience is always special and memorable

As a resident of Sandwich and a mother of a toddler, I was more than excited when my husband offered a night out! We decided to make this a family dinner and take our 21 month old son with us. Two and a half hours later... We asked for our food to be wrapped up because it was just served... More

Their baked lobster (stuffed with lobster meat) is great and their lobster roll is outstanding. Lovely restaurant with a pretty view of the marina.

Some older friends who lived in Sandwich for many years were eager to re-visit the Pilot House, so my husband and I accompanied them, although with some reluctance. We remembered when the restaurant had been the Aqua Grill, with a somewhat humdrum menu. We were pleasantly surprised. We were shown immediately to a table overlooking the Cape Cod Canal and... More

What I like: Maeve, the singer, the friendliness of the staff, and their outdoor patio. What I don't: The food is way overpriced and not at all worth it. Most recent example... $10 for a "Turkey Club". I put that in quotes because it was two slices of UNtoasted basic white bread with some turkey, a little bacon, hard to... More

Last night was my second visit in a month and the food was as good the second time! Overlooking the canal and the marina, the Pilot House food is incredible. I had an enormous serving of swordfish in lemon and butter with crispy green beans, and my friend had a huge portion of fried seafood.... lightly battered and not at... More

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
