great setting, good casual food

we went here for dinner. Two adults, two kids. We sat outside on the nice patio. The service was fast and friendly. I had the soup of the day--chicken curry--as starter. Very tasty, if a bit small. The kids had barista flat bread, which was very tasty and filling. Then I had a delicious cajun... read more

We chose Gilligan's after researching their menu online and confirming that they offered vegetarian options. Upon arriving, however, we could find nothing on the menu that my daughter could eat. The hostess, with an "aw shucks, our bad" shrug, confessed that, yea, the website was out of date and they had nothing vegetarian to offer. We're used to that, so... More

Met friends for lunch-patio seating was nice. Service was pleasant; food was average and took quite a while to come out. We were told they were short staffed.....understand that happens but there's no excuse for NO hand soap in the restroom. How do you run a restaurant and not have hand soap in the bathroom???? We're told the place is... More

Love the crab cakes. Very nice sitting on the deck near the water. Enjoyed the best blueberry cobbler ever for dessert. Service was great! We were able to make reservations. That certainly is a plus in a busy resort town!

We always take my Mother-in-law to Gilligans. She is crazy about the Crabcakes. There were six of us and five of us always get the Crabcake. Friendly and efficient staff. The Crabcake on a bed of greens or the sandwich. Both are great. Parking is tough, always.

While staying in Rehoboth, my personal treat is to shop and Lewes and have lunch here! Always pleases me! They have the best crab cakes (and I'm picky!) because its all crab! No "fillers"! That with fries and a glass a wine...perfect! Sitting outside by the pier - heavenly! The surroundings are so great I didn't even open my kindle,... More

We enjoyed some delicious crab cakes on our visit to Lewes, DE. We had a wonderful view of the marina and boats traveling on the waterway.

I really looked forward to having my birthday dinner at Gilligan's I've always admired the location and the view but for some reason or another last week was the first time I ate there. It's a tiny restaurant with a nice patio but we opted to sit inside since the weather forecast was not favorable and we did not want... More

We have eaten at Gilligan's several times for both lunch and dinner. We had dinner there on our most recent visit to Lewes. We sat outside and had delicious crab cakes and enjoyed being on the water.

While it was hard to find the place, the staff and food were great! Tried their freshly made pork rinds with dipping sauce. Very good for pork rinds. Normally would not eat these but had to find out what they taste like. They have a large tree that shades the majority of the patio that make it nice for our... More
