In business for decades, the Pilot House is a first-rate restaurant. Peel-and-eat were the best I've ever had. The fish plates are as good as it gets in the Keys. Prices are reasonable, too.

We visited on a Saturday night having previously made a reservation via Opentable anticipating the restaurant would be busy in the middle of tourist season. We were seated at a high-top in the bar area where we could look over the wall at the fish swimming around below us. Drinks were very good, my wife said the house special Mojito... More

As a part of African Queen dinner cruise, Pilot House is the place to enjoy the pre-reserved dinner. Reception is warm, service is fast and very friendly and the food is much better than you could expect as a part of a "cruise package". Highly recommended!

We had dinner here our last night in Key Largo. The restaurant had great atmosphere and the staff is friendly. The food was good - but pricey. The drinks were expensive- as much or more than the food prices. We enjoyed our evening - but be prepared for average $30 - $40 per person for a meal and 1 drink.

We recently honeymooned in the Keys and were regular visitors as easy walking distance from our apartment. Lovely location with added interest of the glass floor panels. Live music regularly and good food. check out the 4-7 happy hour.

Come to watch a game, be outside, eat good food, and catch up with friends. You can't go wrong at this KL staple. Lots of bar seating, and live music several days/week.

Our family of six enjoyed a nice dinner at this restaurant. It is well located right in the marina and the "glass bottom bar" is great. We enjoyed a selection of dinners....shrimp, hamburger, a couple of fish dishes, and salads. The place is busy, but the service keeps up and does a great job. I would recommend this restaurant for...

We went to watch football and get a lite bite. My husband had beef nachos and I had grilled fish tacos. The food was good for bar food and inexpensive. They offered a good happy Hour menu that is available 7 days a week. The drinks are good and priced right. You can also get their regular menu too. In... More

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.
