I and a group of my friends were returning from a testing when we stopped at Gilligan's Bar and Grill to taste the fare. There were eight in our group, and we were easily seated in the bar area. We all ordered everything from sandwiches to prime rib. My friend got the prime rib, and although a little fatty, it... More

The waitress was helpful throughout the evening. There was free wifi, which was useful after coming in from a long trip. They were accommodating and allowed us to make alterations to the menu. Even with a bar attached, the restaurant side was family friendly and cozy. The French onion soup was delicious.

We got food here while staying over the weekend. My boyfriend got a new york strip and he loved it. I had chicken parm that was very good. It is a little pricey but they do however give you plenty of food for the money you are paying. Staff was very friendly as well.

The food I found to be ok, but not spectacular. For appetizers we had mozzarella sticks, wings and potato skins. The potato in the skins were grainy/gritty, the wings were not crispy st all, mozzarella sticks were the usual frozen fare but ok. I ordered a med hamburger with fries (a 2.50 up charge ). The burger was well done...... More

We needed a nice dinner after a long day of travel. Hit the jackpot here, especially loving the steamed clams and veal parmigiana. Our server Angelica was excellent. This place is a winner.

We received a warm, friendly greeting upon arrival and taken to a table in the dining room. We ordered drinks (lemon drop martini and the beer special) and the drinks were delivered almost immediately. There was a wide variety from which to choose and all 7 of us ordered a different entree, then had fun taste-testing. The atmosphere is definitely... More
