The most difficult part of dining at Gilligans is deciding which delicious entree to order. I was torn between the veal and shrimp misto, the Chesapeake chicken and the seafood Alfredo. I finally selected the seafood Alfredo which featured scallops, crab meat, smoked oysters and large shrimp over pasta. Fabulous. We ALWAYS get the Gilligans Alternative as an appetizer. This...

Gilligans is a small Bar and Grill family owned since 1993. They have two locations - one on Eisenhower Blvd (the original) and the second location, the one I go to, in Colonial Park (Houcks Road). One thing to note: just be aware that the location shown in the TripAdvisor listing's photo is the restaurant on Houcks Road, not the... More

This is a favorite for my family. We often dine here on holidays and most Friday nights. The staff is wonderful and I have never eaten anything I didn't enjoy. If you love salads this is the place for a great house salad or greek salad.

Lively atmosphere but not noisy. Suitable for good conversation or enjoying the sports bar atmosphere without undue rowdiness. Extensive dinner menu from sandwiches to seafood (the fried shrimp was great).

We were looking for some place to stop that was outside Harrisburg, so we wouldn't have to deal with downtown traffic and parking! Gilligan's is a large restaurant/bar, so was very happy that it wasn't super loud inside. The atmosphere is nice, and the restaurant is very clean. Our server was very friendly and helpful with helping us order. The... More

My Aunt and I met for dinner. Gilligan's is one of her favorite restaurants. She had steak and I had the swordfish. With the salad and sides it was more than we could eat.

Service was a little slow but the food was terrific! Steak was amazing. Crab stuffed ravioli was 😘. And dessert was to die for!

We found this beautiful out of the way gem on Trip Advisor while at a soccer tournament with our granddaughter. We had a wonderful experience. The wait staff were so friendly and the food was fabulous! Best Prime Rib we ever had including that which we have experienced in high end Manhattan restaurants. Highly recommended.
