I just read that the Pilot House is closed until March. But you must experience dining at the Pilot House. The food excellent, the staff is a well oiled machine and the decor lovely without being stuffy. Enjoy. They will reopen for the summer in March so keep this restaurant in mind when you visit Cape Cod. It's located just... More

Great appetizers. Had the muscles and they had a nice garlic sauce. Asked for extra bread to sop up the sauce. Haddock was cooked well with a nice flake and tasty crumble. Fun cocktails and decent wine list.

Just a stone's throw from the Cape Cod Canal Visitor Center. They have a large menu with great harbor views. Our party of three just had lunch, but everyone liked that they had.

Excellent date night at the Pilot House. Good food (scallop special- roasted red peppers, asparagus, rice, and scallops; arugula and goat cheese salad), good drinks (Patron on the rocks), and excellent live music (Better of Dead). Perfect fall night on Cape Cod.

We brought our friends from Pinehurst N.C. here as we told them it was the epitome of local fare. They were exceptionally pleased with the seafood and the prices. Our evening was perfect. Dinner was quick and prepared perfectly. I will return again as this is my restaurant of choice for visitors.

We stopped in day after Thanksgiving for a late lunch. The bar area looked very nice with friendly patrons. We sat at a table to have a water view. All of us had an amazing lunch. My swordfish was so tender and huge with sides of butternut squash and mashed potatoes, for $15.99 I took 1/2 of it home. The... More

Went here when we couldn't get into Fishermen's View across the way. Ambiance was ok, service was efficient. Food was a disappointment.
