The clams casino was really good. We just sat at the bar, but the dining room is really pretty. Nice location also. Summer would be a better time to visit here.

My wife and I made reservations for 6:30 on Valentines. Due to snow, the place was quiet. After seating we were informed one of the 3 specials was sold out. Really? At 6:30 when they were slow? Service was typically slow as in previous visits. Dinner arrived to find my vegetable on my wifes plate. Baked potato was cold and... More

My wife and I got in one more getaway before the end of the year to Sandwich Mass. Had a great time and on our way home, stopped at the Pilot House. My wife and brother in-law had been there several times, and raved about it. What a great atmosphere, view, bar, and the food is great and really nicely... More

The style is "Cape Cod Fresh" but this is the whole package . Great food with Great service;... More

My wife enjoys several of their entrees . Only one waitress to avoid , most are very good and the waiter is excellent !... More

Took four members of my family for dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Everyone (5) chose a different entree and was very pleased with their food. I thought my vegetables were a little too crisp and my son's prime rib appeared rather fatty. Service was excellent however the ambience was a little disappointing, probably because its way-off season. On balance... More

Went to brunch on Sunday with a couple friends. We were greeted right away by the hostess, but chose to sit at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and efficient. The drinks were fantastic. Everyone's food was excellent. I am definitely returning to this hidden gem.

Have been by several times in the last year but the restaurant was closed until we tried a couple of weeks ago. We sat at the bar for lunch and adult beverages. We had crabcakes, a Portuguese mussel and littleneck dish and chowder. The mussel dish was the star although it could've used a couple more of each of the... More
