We come to the Keys looking forward to conch, the Pilot House did not disappoint. Conch fritters were moist and fluffy. The conch chowder thick and spicy. Our server Sarah was very friendly and knowledgable. Loved it, we will be back.

This place has been around for years. You can have a simple salad, a sandwich or seafood while looking through a glass bottom floor overlooking a marina. It's worth a quick stop.

A number of locals told us that we had to stop-by Pilot House in order to see the glass floors where tarpons and other fish could be spotted. We visited at 4 PM for drinks and a snack on a Monday afternoon. Upon arrival we asked the hostess if it was ok to come in only for drinks and she... More

The only reason we went out of our way to this place is to check out the hype of their glass bottom bar. It is not worth the drive- it was several miles off the main road in Key Largo. We were absolutely disappointed to see the square glass in their bar- all green algae covering any view. No sea... More

This place was great. Our server Karen was amazing and I highly recommend requesting her. We got excellent service. Drinks came out fast and when we had a problem with the appitizer, she got it fixed right away. The food was delicious!!!!

I was excited to read about this restaurant having a glass bottom bar until we got there. The portion that is glass is actually under the chairs and cannot really be seen. It is also kinda isolated from the rest of the restaurant in the outside portion (not the inside bar). The food was good and service was a little... More

I ordered the Food Network voted best grouper sandwich here! I ate so slowly to enjoy this DELICIOUS sandwich! You must go here and sit waterside!

The Pilot House was our first stop on our second trip to The Keys.... This year. As avid Diners, Drive-ins & Dives fans we knew this had to be our 1st stop. That and to experience the Glass Bottom Tiki Bar. Which is a cute idea but the bar sits over a marina so we didn't expect much off show,... More

They have a beautiful spot right on the water but the food was just average. Fine, but nothing to shout about. My margarita was good and strong though! Service was efficient but it felt like we were being rushed out of there which isn't what you want in the Keys!

Had six family members visiting for the weekend. Two were under age 6. The kids heard about the glass floor and against our concerns, we went. The food order was taken and the kids food came 20 minutes before any other food. I guess that was their way of saying children aren't welcome. The two medium burgers were extremely well... More

The Pilot House Restaurant is a local's favorite and a Key Largo landmark. You can choose to dine outside at our waterfront Glass Bottom Bar overlooking our five star marina. Then again, if you're looking for a more private experience consider dining indoors in climate controlled comfort.

All dining experiences offer a selection of beer, wine, cocktails, fresh local seafood and shellfish prepared a variety of ways, a broad choice of appetizers, sandwiches, steaks and deserts. For the little ones we have a full "Kids" menu.
