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.

Its a good place for sure. Food is better than you would expect, prices a little higher than you would expect. The real reason to go here is the nice selection of drinks, especially beers and outstanding bartenders. They always have the same two guys and a Lady, they will come to know you and what you drink, also if... More

I was staying nearby for a business trip and heard about Gilligans from a co worker. I had stopped here Tuesday night for drinks and was pretty slow. Thursdsay night came back with few co workers for dinner. We all thought the food was very good including prime rib. Drinks were fair and service was above average. They have several... More

I could walk to this place from La Quinta on Eisenhower Drive and was great! The salad was so bjg I ate it in my car the next day on my way back to Kentucky. The waitress was very friendly and attentive to my needs. If you stay at that La Quinta, do yourself a favor and walk across the... More

During a recent visit to Harrisburg I ate here 3 times. I highly recommend the Kobe beef and provolone sub sandwich. It was amazing! I had it twice! The prime rib is also very good. They are open late and serve a limited menu until midnight.

After a long 6+ hour drive, my wife and I didn't want to dine in anywhere so we phoned in a carryout order here since it was close to our hotel. We ordered a full slab of the ribs to share. My goodness! Many places claim to have "fall off the bone" ribs and many places do. But most often,... More
