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...

Fun bar/restaurant. Fun atmosphere. Tiki Bar vibe. Good place for lunch, too. Great burgers! Good live entertainment. Close proximity to Siesta Beach Resort.

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.

After 12 years of coming to Siesta Key we finally got round to trying Gilligans! And so glad we did. Service (Katy) was very good, very attentive. Food lived up to expectations, really tasty (I had mahi mahi blackened, wife had coconut chicken). My only criticism would be that there was far too much garlic on the veg which riuned... More

The atmosphere and food has always been nice! The only thing I tried out of the ordinary was fish tacos with mango salsa. Messy but good!

Gilligan's is fun. I love the atmosphere. They have a gorgeous court yard and outdoor seating. Outdoor bar is very limited.

Yeah, it may be a hole in the wall but the food and service are excellent. I had the all you can eat catfish and shrimp. My wife had the shrimp tacos and my daughter the Chicken Fettuccine. All was great and the price is very good for good for seafood on Destin. We will be going back. BTW, you... More

Poor service made the meal among my top ten worst dining experiences. Everything was slow and the restaurant was not that busy. Even the manager was given a hint that things were not going well and he failed to pick up on it.
