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

I met friends here recently for a great evening out. My choice for this night was swordfish --one of my favorite Cape meals. It was cooked perfectly - not dried out as some do it. Everyone at the table seemed to enjoy their meal as I did. Good wine choices. Great views. Especially like sitting outside here but that night... More

We went to The Pilot House the night before we left Cape Cod. We had spent a week on the Cape and wanted our last night to be special. It was! The lobster was good. The drinks were great. Even though ONE of us did not know that Oysters on the half-shell and Clams Casino were raw, everyone liked their... More

I thought I would try it again as some friends were meeting there for a food and drinks. If you like fine wine, this is not the spot, the drinks are so so, and the food horrible, menu is old and boring. We had to wait a long time for service, and the place was not crowded. The food was... More

We had a wonderful time with a relaxing dinner with old friends! Our server was great and all of our meals were awesome! The atmosphere was amazing! They have a piano bar and quite a few were going up and taking turns singing. A great and fun place!!
