As you can see by the featured photo there are strategically positioned 3′ x 3′ clear glass panels in the wooden floor so that you can check out the marine life while sipping an adult beverage or chowing down on some fresh seafood. Though I did’nt count, there’s approximately a dozen or so glass panels installed around the ‘Zig-zag’ shaped oceanside bar & eating area.
This is the only floor like it in the Keys that I’ve seen, so put this on your list of things to see while passing through. I too will be stopping by again since promising my wife a sunset dinner from this very bar! There’s also a dance floor, band stand and great ambiance throughout the entire establishment.
This ‘Glass Bottom Bar’ is best accessible from the northbound divided highway of US-1 at Mile Marker 99.6 oceanside. Turn onto Ocean Bay Drive driving .6 miles down, turn left on Seagate Boulevard where you’ll see the Pilot House Restaurant only 1/10th of mile on the right.
