While not an amazing dining experience, it was still VERY good. We would probably return next trip to Destin. Casual atmosphere and kid friendly. Dining on the patio overlooking the harbor was excellent.

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.

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.
