Didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the service and the great tasting food. I had a broiled seafood combination plate that was simply outstanding with a citrus sauce. I plan on going back on this trip.

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

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
