Very good

We have eaten at the Gilligan's near Charleston, SC, so were excited to find one in Beaufort. The lunch salads were exactly the right size with fresh vegetables and lightly breaded or grilled seafood. The hushpuppies are small but they bring you more if you ask. My father declared the shrimp and... read 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.

Good view and average food. If you're looking for your seafood fix, then go elsewhere, but if you have young kids, they'll likely enjoy the aqauriums located inside the restaurant

We spent the afternoon shopping in Beaufort and decided to give Gilligan's a try for dinner. It was great! We loved the fish tanks. The atmosphere was very good. Our server, Renee, was knowledgeable and friendly. Delicious hush puppies came first. Then our mozzarella sticks and frog legs...so tasty! Our entrees were prepared correctly and served hot. I had the... More

Had fried green tomatoes and hush puppies for appetizers. We all had something different on the menu and tried each other's choices. It was all good. Would definitely go back.

I got the teriyaki tuna and shrimp meal. This was $17.99 and only came with 1 side. The tuna was advertised as rare but was very well done. The tuna was not a steak it was more like 1 Oz pieces. I did enjoy the hushpuppies! Service was ok.

Nice looking place with lots of fish tanks and huge picture windows overlooking the marsh. Told the server I was there for a nice leisurely meal, no rush, and she was excellent at both pacing the meal and not pestering me. The food was very good and I enjoyed watching the fish in the tank at the end of my... More

My son's burger was so bland, didn't even taste like the salt and peppered it. My hubby and I got the fried cod and shrimp special. It was so greazy. Where u would think the fish would have been crisp, it was soft and dripping grease. Our plated were pooled w grease. Weve been coming here since it opened and... More
