Gilly's is a nice place with at least during the week a quite dinning room. Bar with a bit noisier with locals. Service was excellent and we were not rushed at all. Actually spent over 2 hours there starting with drinks and excellent conversation. Main coarces were above average and resonablely priced. Will be going back again.

Located near the main intersection of town, this popular place has a bar that is usually crowded, and noisy, an adjacent dining room with booths and tables and an appealing sun room extension at the back with more tables. The menu is limited and ordinary, the food is not exceptional, but the service is friendly and attentive. I've never been... More

I have been going to Gilly's for many years now and the food is really good and really down to earth. The place has a certain warmth to it and the service is friendly and efficient. Seafood is outstanding and reasonably proced for the quality. My only complaint is the salmon portion could be a little bit more generous but... More

Gilly's is a family owned restaurant with great food. To start with I had the Mixed Steamers and all I can say is "yummy" and the garlic sauce was good for bread dipping. For dinner I had the Chicken Carpaccio with arugula over angel hair pasta. Very good! My husband tried the pasta with black olive sauce and he enjoyed... More

We had dinner there tonight and as a professional in the service industry for over 25 years, I cannot believe the horrid experience we just had. While our server was extremely polite and took good care of us, the server at the table next to us was actually drinking wine out of the glasses of the customers there (obviously regulars,... More

This was my first time at this restaurant. There was not anything note worthy about the decor however the food was very good. I had Chicken Marsala which was done perfectly. The portion size was just right and so was the price. Definitely a place to return to when I am in the area.

The guys at the bar having drinks were soooo loud and drunk we couldn't hear ourselves talk. We complained to the waitress and she just shook her head. You... More

If you are not over the age of 75 you'll likely not be welcome here. Forget about bringing kids to this "family" restaurant. They are shunned and you will be demeaned out loud by the waitstaff. I brought my kid there once. he was well behaved but at 20 months old he was talking "loud." next think I know the... More
