Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.You have to put a match to the pilot burner while you hold down that button and for at least a minute after the pilot is lit. Then you can release the button. Follow the 1/4" diameter silver/aluminum tube connected to the gas valve to its end inside the burner chamber. The pilot is attached to the end of that tube.

I'm pretty sure that I'm trying to light the right area at the end of the tube but nothing happening. Holding down pilot button and using long grill style lighter

Yes that's the pilot burner. You have the dial on the gas valve set to PILOT and the gas is turned on?
