Our family always eats at Gilligan's at least once on every trip to Destin. The all you can eat special catfish and popcorn shrimp is always our first choice. The waitstaff is super friendly and the outdoor seating is a must.

This was the best shrimp I have ever eaten. My husband and I ate there twice while on vacation. The service was good and there wasnt a long wait to be seated. We sat outside and enjoyed the view. On our second visit we got the AYCE shrimp and catfish. My husband loved the catfish. Prices were reasonable.

Went there late in evening around sunset and the view overlooking the water was beautiful. Watching the boats come and go was peaceful and relaxing. The fried oysters were good but I've actually had better. Wife ordered all you can eat shrimp and she enjoyed them. Waitress was friendly but they were short handed that evening and service was kinda... More

We were so pleased with our meal here and the service was great! We ordered our food and it was delivered hot in about 15 minutes and we especially loved the hushpuppies. The cost was very reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area.

The other wait staff seemed to be a good bit more attentive to their tables. Ours was slow getting to us. Slower getting the food. And non-present when we needed refills on our drinks. The food was okay - but nothing spectacular. I have been to Gilligan's before and had a better experience. So we may have just been there... More

Husband and I went here while I vacation and it was amazing! Food and service was perfect and much better than the more pricy places. We loved eating on the deck overlooking the water and we would go back again!

We were looking for good seafood at a reasonable price when a friend told us about Gilligans. My husband is not a seafood lover, but it am so we tried Gilligans. The building was nothing to brag about, but the food was delicious! We ordered the all-you-can-eat catfish and shrimp and my non seafood loving husband ordered a second plate... More

Granted most people tend only post negative reviews but was very frustrated. We had 10 people and we called 20 minutes ahead to make sure they had the space since we had 2 small children. We get there and guy at bar says sorry we were closed. I said man we just called and lady said we have space for... More
