I'm a nut for nautical and I was sold when we pulled up to the Pilot House. Located on the Cape Cod Canal, the Pilot House reminded me immediately of a place on Middle River at home in Mobtown. Visiting for a group dinner we had the option to order from the menu. My first choice was the filet and... More

This is where the Aqua Grill used to be. Large menu with lots of choices. Even has an outdoor dining area and porch seats. Great choice

Went to meet a friend for lunch here. Ordered the steamed mussels from the raw bar. The mussels were tender, but the broth that was served with them was pretty bland. Along with them came a serving of plain dried toast, although the menu listed a Portuguese bread with lemon butter. My friend ordered the clam chowder. I didn't hear... More

Stopped with friends after we went to see the canal and to visit the canal visitor center. Got a table right away by a window so we could see the canal and the marina. Our server was friendly and helpful and quickly took drink orders and brought over hot fresh rolls. Looking around everyone seemed happy with their drinks and... More

We wanted to try the Pilot House Restaurant having been recently renovated and under new management, formally the Aqua Grille. The restaurant has a nice view of the Sandwich Marina. Upon entering, I could see that the entrance doors were still very worn. New paint was on the walls and some other interior work was completed and it looked freshly... More

Under new ownership as the Pilot House, I was excited that this lovely facility with the marina view might prove to be an excellent new dining choice in my hometown. I've already written a disappointing tripadvisor review of the former restaurant, Aqua Grille. But I'm dismayed to say the Pilot House is not much better! The waitress was lack luster.... More

This restaurant overlooks the Cape Cod Canal and Sandwich Marina. It takes full advantage of the setting providing excellent views both inside and out. We recently visited for lunch and enjoyed well proportioned, well cooked food - a BLT with Fries and Shrimp Scampi - both were excellent. The wine pour was generous and the service friendly and attentive. Outside... More

My husband and I enjoyed food here during our recent trip to the Cape. I ordered the broiled Schrod and my husband ordered the stuffed shrimp. The stuffed shrimp was average but the schrod was quite tasty and HUGE. We also enjoyed clam chowder that wasn't bad either. The service was a little slow considering the restaurant wasn't very busy... More

My husband & I had lunch here recently. We had to wait for a table on the deck, but the view was well worth it! You can see the Cape Cod Canal, the bridge nod the marina. We both had the oyster po boys and they were outstanding! The coleslaw was fresh, the iced tea was probably instant however. They... More
