4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2014 NEW

We were hungry and just stopped. The meal was very good. The portion size was very generous and the fish was excellent. The sides were very good. Service was okay. The brownie dessert was over the top good. The restaurant affords a good view of canal traffic. All in all very good food at an excellent price.

We have dined here a few times in the past. We always loved the views and the service but for some years the food wasn't the best. Now the new owners have created a place that anyone looking for great fresh local fare can relax and enjoy; The Food, Service and a great view makes this restaurant a winner. And... More

We have been driving by this well hidden jewel near the canal for many years while visiting the nearby coast guard museum. The newest owners have clearly created a place for fine dining on this side of the cape that ranks with the best we've had. Greeted at the door by Ron who was already serving a wedding party of...

We live on the Cape and love to find great places to dine. It is getting harder and harder to find a great outdoor dining experience. Pilot House is a great place to go for a drink and fabulous fresh seafood. We love that it has an outdoor terrace and bar with fire pit and heaters for those cool nights... More

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
