Description: 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.

“Marina view, good food and a smile”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We only get to the Keys a few times a year. Pilot House is always one of our relaxing stops. Nice deck patio view of the marina with sea breezes. Fish Tacos, Hog Fish Eggs Benedict and a few adult beverages were enjoyed.

“Great view, lots of pelicans, declicious fish tacos”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We had a leisurely lunch here and it was great. Crab cake lovers - don't bother, but fish taco lovers will enjoy the blackened option. Dark and Stormies, great service from Emmanuel, and good food. Would definitely come back.

“Fun but food not outstanding”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The Pilot House is mostly known because of the glass floors which do provide a view of the sea life below. It was very busy while we were there which meant the service was rather sporadic. No sunset available from the Pilot House but the African Queen boat tour comes there as a destination and we liked sitting outside.
