Unexpectedly nice place!

We were in Harrisburg for the weekend and Gilligan's was across from our hotel. We looked at the menu on-line first and saw a large variety of menu options and decided to check it out. The place was very nice, even had candles on the tables. The service was good, our server was rather quiet but she... read more

My husband stayed overnight on our way back from North Carolina. It was packed but atmosphere was friendly. Service was quick and food was excellent. Bonus we could walk from our hotel La Quinta Inn!!

Found this restaurant by a recommendation from our hotel. We ask about a place closer to our hotel, but after an emphatic no, we were given a yes for Gilligan's.....she definitely knew what she was talking about. I had a HUGE club sandwich with fries which was excellent. My husband had scallops. He was a little hesitant to order seafood... More

We decided to eat here after a evening of bowling at the lanes that are next to this restaurant. There were 8 of us and we were seated without a problem. There were no complaints about any of the meals. We ordered anything from sandwiches to steaks. I had a Delmonico and it was very good. I would definitely eat... More

We were supposed to go out of town for Valentine's weekend, but an injury changed our plans. The wait at Red Lobster was ridiculous, so we went to Gilligan's. The crab cakes were very good, as were all of the sides. We had a great waitress who made us laugh. I've always had great food and received awesome service there.... More

Found by chance on our way to the hotel. Family friendly greeting. Decent wine list. Delicious food. Very friendly wait service. Pricing we thought was reasonable. I had the prime rib - tasty and served as ordered. My wife had a seafood treat. Really think this was a marvelous find and we would go out of our way to do... More

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

A decent selection of interesting entrees as well standard classic fare. Dined with a group of eight and drinks, bread and then food were all brought quickly. Everyone was satisfied with their meal and despite being a little pricey that's more than compensated for by the generous portions. Apparently prime rib is one of their specialities but as no one...
