Solid performer for your seafood favorites and great views of the marina from the covered deck. Staff was very friendly. Food was very good. Reasonable prices too.

Nice out of the way place with lazy servers. Takes a while to get waited on. Food not so great and drinks seem to be low quality liquor and mixes.

Excellent service, good food, and great, live music. We sat on dock with glass bottom floor which is cool at night with lights and fish. Apps were good and food came fast. We will come back!

Food was very good....though not the best we have had here. Service was fine and the setting lovely.... The glass bottom bar is a great idea and there is no shortage of fish to admire as you tuck in. A good experience.

Pilot House is built around the end of a marina with a large covered decked area surrounding a bar overlooking the boats. Informal dining at its best, the servers are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the food on offer. Having been a frequent complainant that salad usually equals a romaine lettuce chopped up with a vinegrette sauce thrown over it... More

Had dinner there this evening. Food portions small for $30 & $33 per plate. Food quality poor and TOO salty. Tourist trap. Stay away.

...... where you will come back!!!! Glass bottom floor is amazing attraction of this place and day time or night time visit is still interesting to watch what is going on under the water. Food was good and servers nice. Place by itself has great local character.

We vacationed within walking distance of the Pilot House and definitely enjoyed going there numerous times. Half price drinks for happy hour is awesome. And they had the best Oysters Rockefeller I've ever had! YUM! Great local seafood, but the burgers are even pretty awesome. I wish we had a place like this back home!

Thank chelogna

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.
