We had dinner here one night mainly because it was across the street from our hotel. We walked in the bar side first, which smelled distinctly of smoke. We then went in the restaurant side and found it to be quite lovely. We were there for an early dinner, so the restaurant was not crowded at all. We had excellent... More

I had read earlier reviews about this restaurant and the biggest complaint was about the smoke. Since we're not smokers either, I was a bit wary, but decided that the food reviews made this worth a try. The bar is, in fact, smoky, but there is a closed door that separates it from the restaurant and there was no smoke... More

We were passing through Harrisburg on our way home from a trip. We stayed at a local hotel for the night and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was only about 1/4 mile from our hotel, and we were tired of driving, so it was perfect. When we looked at the reviews, we were surprised at the range of... More

This is an upscale dining room with a bar attached. One exterior door for each section. Please note - - smoking is permitted in the bar area but not the dining room. The dining room is much like Carrabas or other chain Italian restaurants but with some local touches. The food was good and prices fair for the portion sizes.... More

Gilligan's has anything from hamburgers to great steak and seafood dinners ~ domestic beer to elegant wines and cocktails. It has a great atmosphere with sports TV and / or music. Friendly bartenders and waitresses compliment this clean and relaxed bar. I never go to Harrisburg without stopping at Gilligan's at least once!

Ate at Gilligan's with several family members. The special that night was Osso Bucco and it was delicious - no one in our party had a bad meal. The restaurant was pleasant, though not crowded. The service was good and our meal came quickly. On the whole it was a very enjoyable evening.

Passing through decided to try this place and were very satisfied with the sandwiches and gyros, we were seated fast and the food was out fast however the service was poor. We sat with empty glasses of soda until the hostess actually noticed and it took a long time to get our bill as our waitress was noticed hanging out... More

But the prime rib was PERFECTO!!! We inadvertently walked into the bar side, and were redirected into a beautiful restaurant. We still didn't know what to expect. But GET THE PRIME RIB! I can't say anymore. It's worth the $21.99 price. Well worth it.

Gilligan's is a sports bar & grill which I recently visited on a somewhat busy Saturday night as it was directly across the street from my hotel. The business is split into two separate sides: one side holds a restaurant while the other contains a sports bar & grill. Chose to sit in the non-smoking section of the bar &... More

On a chilly night in June we had soup appetizers and salad/sandwiches plus beer and sangria beverages....I know sangria (well it was made on premises and good).... More
