We needed a nice dinner after a long day of travel. Hit the jackpot here, especially loving the steamed clams and veal parmigiana. Our server Angelica was excellent. This place is a winner.

Had to visit Harrisburg today and decided to stop in to Gilligan's for lunch. Our server Chris,was extremely friendly and the food was excellent. The portion sizes were generous and everything was delicious. The portion sizes for kids were a tad bit too much for my little one but even he said his meal tasted good. My husband had the... More

Gilligan's is one of our favorite places to go for lunch. The soup is amazing. I have tried many of their daily soups and not one has disappointed! The food is great and service is good.

The menu is extensive and they have several offerings that you do not typically find in a standard fare restaurant. Our meals were really very good, the... More

They have an awesome kitchen staff. ..it was so busy but we didn't have to wait long and our food was great! our waitress was fine, you could tell she was super busy. I also like they have a separate smoking area far from non smoking. Good job.

Gilligan's seems like a local hang out in Harrisburg. Solid bar atmosphere - pool tables and darts. There place has plenty of room - each booth has a TV in it and there are additional TV's everywhere. You won't miss any action. The servers were great - they are local alcohol reps walking around with shots. Pretty fun atmosphere. The... More
