The chefs here do an amazing job at serving the perfect steak, grill marks are perfect . The Gatsby burger is also a wonderful choice. The seafood brushetta is awesome as well as their salads. Beer and wine list is exceptional.

Great restaurant. Staff was friendly and the food was delicious. We had a back booth where it was a little quieter and really enjoyed the evening catching up with old friends. Portions were a good size and food was cooked perfectly

We love the Pilot House. As a couple, in a group,or by myself for a quick lunch, you can't go wrong. The steak sandwich is a great meal on it' own. For lunch or supper. Thier seafood dishes are done right and thier prices are very reasonable. This is a sit at a table and use real linen napkins kinda... More

The quality of the food and service in this eatery are excellent and more importantly consistent. Perhaps a less trendy but attracts regular customers from both near and far. Prices are very reasonable for the quality.

We stopped for a Christmas eve lunch and felt like outsiders. There were obviously a lot of locals which is nice to see, but simply put up a "Private Function" sign if you rather not have visitors. We were seated in a high booth that was small and had no foot rests so it was uncomfortable. Service was slow and... More
