We enjoyed having dinner here. The glass bottom bar area was amazing. You could see the fish swimming under you! My husband had a grouper sandwich and the fish was "real" and very good! The menus selection was very extensive. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff was very friendly!

Great meal with daughter, son-in-law and 5 year old granddaughter. Immediately enjoyed feeding and looking at the fish through the floor of the restaurant! What a unique idea. Atmosphere was excellent looking out at all of the boats in the marina. Food was also excellent. Blue point oysters, brie with berries and baguettes, fish tacos, tostones with guacamole, kids pizza!... More

Came here expecting fresh seafood....heck there is even a neon sign in the restaurant that says "fresh seafood"....what we got instead was frozen crab claws for $25 bucks. They were still thawing in spots. Bummer. Rest of the land lubber food was decent and the restaurant was pleasant enough.

We enjoy visiting the Pilot House for happy hour and dinner when visiting Key Largo. The place is a hangout for locals at the end of their working day, which makes it fun and quirky. A great place to soak up the Keys atmosphere. Will go back again next time we're in the Keys!

Was here a couple of years ago and had the Lobster Mac N Cheese. Ordered it tonight and it was just as amazing as I remembered. The service was terrific! Drinks were spot on. Really enjoy stopping here.

I give this place five stars for the view. The food was not so good. I had the ribs and I thought they were terrible. The sauce they used was horrible. Perhaps the seafood is better. Seems like a real locals place. Much older crowd at the bar. Bar was packed early Saturday afternoon. Dogs are allowed. The bar area... More

This restaurant and bar is literally ON the water--you can watch fish swim underneath through the glass panels in the floor. So you are protected from the sun by the roof but able to enjoy the sea breezes and sip the excellent selection of beers and wines. We had a light lunch and specially enjoyed the jerked fish--nice and spicy.... More

Great Keys place with a fantastic menu and atmosphere. The restaurant has plenty of outdoor seating where you can watch the activities of a busy harbor.

We were in the area on holiday & the Pilot House was recommended to us, we were not disappointed, the restaurant area is right on the water with clear sections in the floor that shows the fish & lobsters underneath in the marina. The service was friendly and the waitress had a good knowledge of the menu & helped my... More

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.
