We had an attentive and chatty waitress at Gilligans she was friendly and our meal though not inexpensive filled up everyone in our party. Our kids enjoyed the smaller size twin hotdogs that came with their meal which was great for small kids under seven. Kids liked the popcorn shrimp meals and would recommend them again

Sometimes you really can judge a book by its cover. What you see is what you get with Gilligan's. We ate in the deck area and the staff seemed to struggle with keeping up. The overall cleanliness of the establishment was questionable and that made us approach our food with caution, especially with it being seafood. Give me Red Lobster... More

This place looks small, but if you eat outside on the deck it is wonderful! And the food was delicious!

We sat outside and had a great view of the harbor. The service was good with tasty food. We were surprised that the place wasn't crowded. We will return in the future.

Today was the last day on our vacation here on Okaloosa Island and I wish we would have come to Gilligan's sooner. The food was Great!! The service was Excellent!! Plus you can't beat the scenery of Destin Harbor. We will be faithful patrons of Gilligan's every time we come to the Island on vacation. The all you can eat... More

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.
