Pleasant staff, nice view, good food.

Wanted sea food dinner and Gilligan's seemed to offer the best choices. Was greeted quickly and seated. Olivia, or waitress was extremely pleasant and quickly took or drink order and meal orders. A basket of fresh, hot hush puppies was brought to the table along with large glasses of ice water. The... read more

This is a hidden gem near Charleston, SC. The food was wonderful and we had a coupon from where we stayed from the campground. The service was pretty fast, the prices were good, and the food was excellent! It was not near a highly conjested area either. Would highly recommend.

We arrived minutes after the restaurant had opened on a Monday. We waited a bit for someone to notice we wanted to be seated. We were given a nice table with a view. Our order was taken promptly. The food was bland. My husband felt the She Crab soup was the worse he had ever had. While the food wasn't... More

Fresh fish and EXCELLENT huspuppies that keep on coming. We loved the atmosphere and it was surprisingly affordable for two adults and two kids. Our waitress, Renee was very sweet and on the ball. We will be back for more! YUM!

We were not impressed in walking into this restaurant. Cheap carpeting, a less than inviting environment. However, the food was good - from hush puppies to shrimp to baked potato. The service was so so but the view of the marshland out the window was very nice.

Arrived, directed to seat ourselves. 25 minutes. No waitress in sight. Restaueant almost empty. Googled and called front of restaurant and asked for a waitress & menus. 10 minutes later she appears. 20 minutes to come back with 2 sweet teas, diet coke, & white russian. Took orders. Food came in 10 minutes. Food was ok. Not bad but definitely... More

Great seafood and great menu choices! Reasonable priced. Great view on the waters edge. Good hours. Lunch menu prices until 4 pm. Dinner prices and portions are a little more!

We came here to Beaufort for my brother in laws graduation and gilligans was close to our hotel so we thought we would give it a try. The resturant is old, the table and aquariums were filthy. The waitress didn't know what types of whiskey they offered or the specials. We waited for an hour for our food when it... More

Very few people in restaurant. Waited over an hour after ordering to get food. Staff didn't seem to care. This is an old place. And I won't be back. Miserable experience.
