Excellent meal with a large group! We really enjoy going here when we have guests from out of town. They have an extensive menu and a comfortable atmosphere.

Menu features many choices of sandwiches, burgers, salads, seafood and pasta dishes. The Eggplant Parmigiana was zesty and satisfying. Excellent coffee. Children's menu appeared to please several children at a nearby table, and the servers let them speak for themselves. Pleasant urban ambiance. Prices on the high side, but not alarming. Very generous portions. I will return to this place... More

Remember when you woulkd walk into a bar and have it filled with cigarette and cigar smoke? Well, that's exactly what you get when you walk into Gilligans. They still allow lighting up at the bar, but do have a smoke eater on the ceiling which helps a little. Food is good, but a little on the expensive side.

Great little find. Decor is up to date and clean. I ordered wings & cheese fries (surprise!) they were both excellent! Friday beer special was a pint of Miller lite for $2.25. There are some pricey items on the menu, but being in more of a bar-like atmosphere I just stuck with what I know. There were tons of Tv's... More

We met there for a birthday celebration lunch at a place that all of us agreed was a good place to eat. We found the prices to be very reasonable for the type of restaurant. Maybe because we were early, but there were several mishaps. Our chicken orzo soup was delicious, but had chicken that wasn't quite cooked...so, one friend... More

I really enjoyed this lace. We had dinner in the dining room area which was separate and a lot quieter than the bar area that also has tables. Service was very friendly and checked on us frequently. The food was delicious with large portions and multiple choices of sides. I nightly recommend the blackened Tuna. Though reluctant to order it... More

We ate at Gilligans on a friday night. They have a nice selection on the menu. I was hungry for a bowl of soup and we ordered onion soup and also the crab. They were both good. I ordered a turkey sandwich and was hoping that the bun would have been a little fresher but it was acceptable. They seated... More

We like Gilligans becasue you can either sit on the lounge side and have sandwiches, dinners, and drinks or you can have a nice meal in the dining area which is nicely decorated. Service is good also.
