Looked at going to this place for dinner but ended up just having drinks. Definitely more of a place for drinking but they do do food. Great atmosphere though and well deccorated island feel. Would go back for drinks again. Happy Hour is the best time to go

We first asked for the best waiter and if that is what we got we sure didn't feel like it. He was very slow and I dont know how long we sat there before we got to order our meal. The chips and queso was very good, i loved it! My boyfriend got the chicken strips and fries, fries were... More

We recently held a rehearsal dinner at Gilligan's Island. Jennifer and Scott the owners were awesome to accomodate our requests. Marshall & Jessica were our servers and they did an outstanding job! We went back several times throughout our stay. Their live entertainment, happy hours and food were what I consider the best in Siesta Key.

Went on a Sat evening and since it wasn't busy should have just kept walking. But we went in. For starters we where seated besides a group that should have been cut of a few drinks back. Loud annoying cursing just annoying. Frozen drinks made from mixers just bought nothing fresh or no rum. The fish was mush and undercooked.... More

One of the highlights of our Florida trips for my husband was going to Gilligans and having his barbecued grouper sandwich. Well, we haven't gone to Florida in a few years but we finally made it back this past August. What a big disappointment for the both of us. I asked if they had mint tea. The waitress said yes...

On Sunday 8/31, Gilligans had the Ventura's band -OMG that girl can sing Led Zepplin! What started as coffee/desert at LeLu's Coffee Lounge turned into Corona's and live music at Gilligan's. It seemed to be patron'd by the locals with a night of drink specials. Waitress was very friendly. Stopped in a day later and Rodney was playing in the... More

Stopped here with. Multi family group of 11. Seating and services was not a problem. Generally busy no wait time. Nice outdoor atmosphere. A little smoky as they smoke outside. Food was good with adequate variety. I commend the waitress as it down poored at the end of our stay and she made a special run through the rain to... More

The place is nice, tropical. The music really a plasure during the dinner. We took a grilled salmon and a Mahi Mahi, both good but nothing special. The sweet of ananas cover the fish taste. We were eating and they took us the bill. Maybe for a drink, or for lunch not for the dinner.
