We've been here 3 times now. The first time, our waitress was amazing. Our drinks were never empty, the food was delicious & the price was good. She got us signed up for a points card to use (the name is escaping me right now) and that trip in itself was 5 stars. The second & third trip was just... read more

Family friendly. This is one of the few seafood restaurants open for lunch. We visited 3 times in one week, and found the food to be very good, and the service to be excellent. Ask for Olivia as your server. Our family of eight, ranging from 3 seniors to a 20 month old infant, all enjoyed the food and the... More

I think this is so funny. These reviews for this place are horrible, funny thing is, my husband is an acclaimed chef and it was one of our best meals in Beaufort. The hushpuppies are by far the best I had in Beaufort. I had the fan tail shrimp that was so great. The shrimp was fried lightly so I... More

I ordered the lunch combo plate for $11.99. I was very disappointed it was one tiny piece of flounder and 6 shrimp which had no taste. My daughter had pasta with shrimp, she said it was good just a little to much butter. The only thing that made our experience enjoyable was our waitress, she was extremely nice. Overall I... 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

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 drinks were good sized and the food portions... 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.
