Decent food at decent tariffs

First, the negative -as others noted ,it was slow The place was about 1/2 full and it dragged on to get an order in and for the food to be delivered. That said, it was tasty- we had shrimp and grits-GET GRAVY ON THE SIDE-and a flounder sandwich with fried green tomatoes. Some hush puppies... read more

Friendly staff and great service, food was a little bland for our liking. The hushpuppies were very good, even my little ones like them even though they had jalapenos in them!

I don't get all the negative review mentioning bland food. My scallops were very tasty. The hushpuppies that they put on the table as bread were warm soft and just a bit spicy. I could have made a meal out of those. The service was very attentive and they were cooperative on substitutions of sides. Portions were decent and prices... More

Speed of service was poor and the restaurant was not packed Had to remind waiter numerous times of drinks and condiments Waiter didn't know menu items and acted nonchalant when questioned about the description of menu items Ordered the Gilly pot and it came with about 2 cups of broth at bottom. Was told to basically be happy about the... More

First I want to say that our server was friendly and attentive, and definitely the bright spot of our visit. But from there it went downhill in a hurry. The decor is cheesy nautical, very tacky and had a run-down feel. The wooden booths are without cushions/upholstery and not at all comfortable. The complimentary hushpuppies were nothing but fried floury... More

Lovely people supporting the troops are here! We went to pack bags for the troops, which happens several times a month. We had a few drinks but didn't get dinner as we had eaten on the base. It smelled great though. Gotta love a place that supports the troops!

We always try to find some kind of restaurant that we can't go to at home. I read the reviews on this before we came and it was absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere was great. My husband ordered the steam pot! Said it was awesome! The broth that it's made in is so good! I had Grilled and fried shrimp. The... More

Gilligan's Steamer and Raw Bar, Charleston SC Visited Gilligan's per Hawthorne front desk staff recommendation on our first night (Friday, November 28, 2014). The place is sort of hard to find and its located off the main road in a not well lit location in a shopping strip. The place was packed; however, we didn't wait long for our table.... More
