We had a house salad with shrimp and the fish tacos. Food was good, portions were very good. Housemade blue cheese dressing was excellent! And service was very good.

Really good nachos. You get a mound of them! At least it can feed 4 people. The chili they put on it is really good. Fun environment too for the night life!

Had lunch here a few weeks ago during a visit to Siesta Key. There is no shortage of eateries on the Main Street, but this one caught our eye with it's eye catching outdoor eating area. We were seated immediately and had a very friendly waitress take our drink order. We were served very quickly and the special rum drinks... More

Visited Gilligans many times and I've never been disappointed. The food was good, the live music was fantastic, great happy hour prices but the drink prices are cheap all day, rather large dance floor, and we absolutely loved the outdoor area. On the village strip, which makes it a nice place to bar hop to. No matter where you are... More

They do not have a wine list and are missing many great spirits! If you want good music and like beer this is the place for you. We stopped in for the music you can hear on the street. Enjoyed that but I really could not find anything I liked to drink. Settled on a 14.00 drink by the time... More

Fun place to sit out on an open deck. Live music to accompany a mediocre food. Prices for food and drink on the main street were not out of line. Wait staff was very accommodating to our large group.

We stumbled upon this place while trying to find parking. Parking is very hard to find and can be expensive. Parking was free and allowed us time to walk around the area. Food was great! We had the fried dill pickles, Mahi tacos w/mango salsa, shrimp and strawberry daiquiris. Service was quick and courteous. Prices were reasonable.

It took 55 min to get the food after placing the order. The soft tacos were small, the chicken was burned and it didn't taste much. The nachos with chicken had the cheese on the bottom (under all the nachos) and the chicken was burned and dry. One point is for atmosphere and location. Not worth it! The next day... More
