Since they gave this place a makeover a couple years back, I am always up for one of their club sandwiches and a fair-priced beer. They have an upscale restaurant, too, but we like the sports bar side with a nice atmosphere without a surplus of noise. Decent menu and super salads for those so inclined.

I am very fussy about my crabcakes. Their crabcakes were all jumbo lump crabmeat with very little filler. There were 4 of us and everyone's food was delicious. We will definately be going back

My wife and I go there a couple of times a year, usually on our birthdays. Always get the prime rib. It is always done to prefection!! The table service and beer selection is also excellent.

About three years ago I got sandwich here and was enjoying it until I found a hair inside. Ok, obviously gross. I gave it a year and went again super early for dinner at 5 sharp and the place was dead, the hostess sat us right next to her booth and walked away, the phone there rang off the hook... More

After a very long work day, we just wanted something decent to eat and picked Gilligan's because it was close to the hotel. Never thought the food would be as good as it was! If you're a coleslaw lover, try their homemade version. Sometimes it's the smallest thing that makes all the difference. I had the crab stuffed shrimp and... More

The sandwich was sooo good, they added chips...no fries...what the heck happened. The package would have been so much better with French fries of anykind. Chips didn't get me there, they should offer a choice.

As a woman who frequently travels solo and prefers to sit in a bar solo than alone at a table, I loved the staff at the bar and the food but hated the smoking policy. If dining in, I highly recommend the crab cake but please enjoy separate from the smoking area in bar. It dimed my enjoyment, enough obviously... More

Six adults and two children on a quiet Monday evening and it was very good. Drinks were good sized and the food was delicious. The two little ones had more than they could handle while the portions for the adults were just right. The service was good - not overbearing and not difficult to find when needed. We'll go back.
