My family and I decided to try a new restaurant and all agreed on the Pilot House because none of us had ever been. We were a party of 6 which i know can sometimes be hard to accommodate right away on a Friday night but the hostess was able to seat us with only a 10 minute wait! Our... More

We have been going here for a few years with family and friends. Large restaurant by the cape Cod canal. Food is mediocre and menu has not changed. Small and limited. Since I was tired of getting pretty much the same thing I took the waitresses suggestion and ordered the grilled salmon. It was tasteless!!! There were 8 of us... More

We usually stop in Sandwich for a late lunch after driving from CT. We used to go to the Pilot House when it was the Aqua Grille and we always loved it. We saw it was open again under a different name and decided to try it. The waitress recommended the swordfish (among other menu choices) so we decided on... More

Very comfortable dining and great views await you at this outdoor patio with live music overlooking the Cape Cod Canal. Great outdoor bar, service and entertainment. Perfect for a summer outdoor dining experience. Wait staff is very attentive and efficient, not coming back every three minutes to check on you and see if "everything is alright". Would recommend this restaurant... More

Went here for a Sunday lunch and wasn't disappointed. The clams were great, both steamed and fried Service was very good and the hostess /greeter was specially nice. The waitstaff was great as well. We had window seats that offered views of the boats and canal museum.

After more than a few visits I can now safely say that The Pilot House is on par with The Black Cat in Hyannis. Both offer a varied menu of creative dishes plus my favorite, fresh, basic, fried or broiled native seafood. Both restaurants are a little bit noisy, but both are unique in that they offer excellent, professional service... More

My husband and I just moved to the area and heard from word of mouth about the pilot house. The first time we went there was about a 2 hour wait for other couples with no reservations, but we had made reservations in advance and was seated in about 20-25 mins. The service was great the first time we went,... More
