This is a casual dining restaurant. Coming from Oregon we are not used to deep fry so the meal felt heavy. Deep fried Gator bites, deep fried okra, deep fried oysters and cheesy grits. If you consider this restaurant, check the menu online for offerings & pricing before you go. The restaurant was busy, so know that this perspective is... More

Disorganized & inattentive wait staff. Amount & quality of food not worth the cost. Seafood did not taste fresh. Salads were wilted. Overall a poor dining experience. The only positive thing I have to say is the parking lot has a magnificent view of the marsh.

We arrived and no one was at the front to seat us. A customer went to find a waitress for us. The food was not that great for the price. We had one refill of our drinks the whole time we were there. The waitress never came back to check on us. The highlight of the whole dining experience was... More

Throughly enjoied, soon as I sat down they... More

Food and service was excellent. Location is a bit out of town and not as easy to find as first thought, but worth the trouble.

We had a great experience at Gilligans. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was friendly and attentive. The shrimp & grits was very good as well as the hushpuppies. We had our kids with us and the fish tanks kept them amused and the marsh view was very relaxing. Highly recommend giving Gilligans a try!

Very poor. I had the "grilled" scallops which were small, beige in color and was obviously fried on a surface that also cooked hamburgers. They were so salty, I was unable to eat more than two. The colada that was supposed to come in a "real coconut" came in a regular glass. Two of the plates came 30 minutes after... More

We were in town just for the day and hoping for a nice fresh seafood lunch. Not to be had - the nice places only open for dinner and the rest seemed to be café style with sandwiches or fried food. Read on line that at least Gilligan's had a view, so we left the downtown area and ate there.... More

My wife and I visited for a late lunch and were fortunate enough to get a great view of the marsh from our booth. The side windows are very large and affords the lucky a great panorama. We were also fortunate in that a small T-storm blew in and we watched it approach with all of its wind and lightning.... More
