We loved everything about this place! The view was amazing and so were the scallops. We had a party of 10 and we all ate something different and we were all pleased! Great service, great meal, great atmosphere, and great prices. We will be going back next year.

The picture in the local travel guide is deceiving! The restaurant is ok with a nice ocean view. The staff seems friendly when you enter the doors but that quickly fades once you sit down. We were told we could just seat ourselves any where. Our waitress (when she arrived) seemed to have an 'I really don't want to be... More

My family and I spent our vacation in Destin. Our first night there, we took a chance and decided to eat dinner at Gilligan's Seafood. I love fried shrimp, so that's what I ordered. The food was so delicious, and the shrimp was seasoned well. My husband ordered the fried oysters, and he said it was some of the best... More

Visited Destin for a week and my family wanted to stop in somewhere for some good seafood. I am not a seafood eater so I had Chicken Alfredo. The chicken that was on top was phenomenal. It had all the right spices but the noodles were not that good. Now my family, they really like seafood. They cleaned there plates,... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere at Gilligan's and the shrimp was excellent. The cheeseburger was also excellent, which surprised us since that's probably not a common order. The service was excellent, the food took a bit to get there, but we didn't mind with the beautiful view to look at. We would definitely return.

While the food was just mediocre the service was exceptionally poor. I had to find the condiments and napkins myself. My waitress was less than accomidationg. There were less than a dozen customers and no reason I should needed to wait on myself... $15.00 for a poorly made Po-Boy was exorbitant … I'll not return here...

After two great visits to this restaurant, it was our destination of choice after getting off pontoon boat on Thursday, 7/3. When we walked in, at around 7 PM, there was a large group of about 15 people milling around, looking unhappy. After a few minutes, wondering why nobody was saying anything to us, voices started to get loud at... More

If you are on vacation, don't waste a valuable night of it here. Yes, the view is nice, but waited an hour and a half for food in a half-Ful restaurant. When the food arrived, 5 of our seven orders were wrong. The salad was not made as the menus stated, missing several ingredients, including the lettuce. Never did get... More

Our family tried this one out. We had a variety of meals. From the all you can eat catfish and shrimp to lobster, and many desserts. Service was good. Food was fresh. The view of the bay was great. Would definitely go again
