We have not found very many restaurants in this area that impressed us with the consistent quality throughout the menu from appetizer to dessert. I happened to pick a veal misto dish that was excellent. My wife and brother also enjoyed their food. Service was good...they don't rush you through your... read more

I was with a large group of 19 that tried to get into another area restaurant on a Saturday night without a reservation and the host simply looked at us in amazement and walked away from us.

Looked on trip advisor to see where to eat dinner. We were just here for one evening. When we walked in it said seat yourself so we did after waiting for table. Great menu choices but I had to try the Prime rib ( my favorite thing) and it was so good. Cooked to perfection. We had cocktails. And there... More

Crab bisque is the best around. Beer could be colder. The spinach and crab dip has way too much spinach and not enough chips to dip. The remodel looks great. Get some servers with a personality and things would improve drastically.

The place is a little outdated but the food is decent and the beer is cold. Burger was slightly overcooked, but that's the norm around here. Would go back and try again.

Excellent food and service. Loved the Lobster tails! Clean place and lots of TVs to watch the games on if you're out with friends. Awesome drink specials as well. Ask for the root beer barrel shot!

Just had dinner at Gilligan's. My husband had the prime rib and raved about it. I had lobster ravioli with shrimp added - unbelievable! Our sever, Jennifer was very good, too. I would definitely recomend Gilligan's but they get very busy even for lunch so you might want to get there early.

Visited from a recommendation from staff at Red Roof across from restaurant. Waitress was very efficient and friendly. She kept is smiling. Food came out speedy and was out of this world. I recommend the calamari. Drinks from bar were made just right.
