My husband and I ate at the Pilot House and sat outside at a table overlooking the marina. Our waitress was delightful and very accommodating. My husband enjoyed the black blackened scallop appetizer and I had the special of the day which was a fruit topped garden salad with grilled swordfish. It was the best swordfish I've ever had. We...

My family of 7 and I went to lunch on Mon. July 18th and enjoyed it very much. It was planned at the last minute so we had no reservation set up. We went about 3:00 and were seated very quickly on the back Veranda. It was a very warm day and the A/C didn't cover that area. I was... More

We have been to the pilot house a few times and have enjoyed it but this visit was disappointing. The good: scallop special and pilot house chicken dish very good, server was attentive. The bad: fried clams mushy (although batter was tasty) but worst of all was the 2 lb lazy man lobster. Although the lobster itself was delicious, we... More

Our family has eaten here many times, and we've never been disappointed. Prices are reasonable and portions are ample. The outside deck and bar area are great choices for the summer season. Highly recommend.

This is a well located, large restaurant that serves good food in a friendly way for a reasonable price. We ate Asian wings and drummers, very good, little necks, enjoyed, salmon / swordfish, both char grilled and tasty. We had no room for dessert!

quick lunch of fried clams and chowder. simple enough but not done well in a lot of places. we enjoyed both, had a couple of glasses of wine and were surprised that the check was so small. the fried clam plate, priced to market, was $15.99. that is incredibly cheap for the Cape especially in mid July. we assume it...

We took a getaway weekend to Sandwich situated on the Bay side of Cape Cod. Naturally I wanted shellfish by the water at sunset. We made reservations, which I recommend. It was very busy on a Saturday evening in July, as expected. We sat inside on the porch with an expansive view of the working waterfront at sundown. I would... More

This was our first visit to The Pilot House Restaurant. The food was good, but was very overpriced. One in our party ordered the baked scallops. I had just a taste, and in that tiny bit I was treated to the grit of sand. My own selection, baked stuffed shrimp, suffered the same fate. Clearly the kitchen needs to do... More

Atmosphere and service were pretty good but the food was average at best and the margarita I had was the worst I've ever had.

Lovely restaurant! The food was the best we had on our trip to Cape Cod. I had the steak tips, whatever they marinate that steak in please tell us, it was amazing! Service was great, really lovely waitress! We went around sunset and there was a lovely view from our table. Buzzy atmosphere but not loud so enjoyable. Highly recommend.
