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.

My skirt steak salad was delicious, although I don't think it was skirt steak. My husbands lobster dish was too die for and the fried key lime pie dessert was a perfect ending to a great meal. We enjoyed the music and it kept our kids entertained. Even a little dancing before we left finished our visit.

The location and atmosphere are spot on however the hostess, wait staff and entertainment leave much to be desired. After clearly requesting and outside table for eleven. We were escorted after a thirty minute wait to a table inside...not...then a table outside that seated eight...are you kidding me right now! After sitting our kids at a separate table out waiter finally made his way over. Clearly making no effort to keep orders or tabs straight repeatedly dropping beverages to the wrong person and needing repeated reminders for refills etc even bring a glass of wine ordered during dinner out after we already finished dessert and had requested the bill. . the menu was not particularly impressive bit the food was good...no complaints there. Service was slow, food was good especially the calamari and paella, and the karaoke grade entertainment was mediocre at best. Skip this one for some better options on the island.

We were very happy with service and the food was delicious.. prepared with thought and caring. Probably the best paella that I have had in a long time.

We ate here with our two boys. Our waiter was friendly and the food was delicious. Our boys enjoyed the fish off the dock. The glass bottom floor kept them entertained as well. We will be back!

I like sitting on the deck near sunset and watching the birds and boats. The mahi sandwich with fries and slaw at $10 is good and reasonably priced. Only drawback is smokers on the deck but that is unfortunately true in many Florida places.
