We arrived and ordered and it took about 15 minutes for the hushpuppies to arrive. It arrived about the same time as the appetizers. She kept saying the hushpuppies were coming and when she did bring them I asked her what took so long as hushpuppies come with every meal and she stated the fryer quit working three times. We...

This place gave us a warm welcome on a quiet Saturday afternoon when a bunch of friends met for a late lunch and some minor drinking. Each of us in the group loved our meals. Service was pleasant and didn't hurry us.

My friend and I stopped in for lunch. I had the peel and eat shrimp lunch. It was really good. I did pick the green beans for a side, but I wouldn't recommend them. I am picky on my vegetables and prefer fresh, which those weren't. However, the shrimp was great! The hush puppies - must get! They are amazing.... More

Good, not great seafood. Tad expensive compared to other restaurants in the area. Portions were huge. Three large portions of flounder on my platter, two 5inch crab cakes on my wife’s. A fried pickle appetizer filled a foot long platter . Fried okra was good but a little greasy. Hush puppies was greasy and bland, not to mention small. Grilled... More

After a friend and I visited Angel Oak, it was time for food. I am not much of a fish eater...but lunch was tasty and inexpensive. The server provided an endless supply of hushpuppies, which I had never tasted. Since my travel agenda is to visit different cities, hope I can find hushpuppies in Chicago. Probably not. Our server was... More

Gillian's has a a couple of locations and this one is just off hiiway 17 heading to John's Island and Kiawah Island. They re-opened recently because the place burned down. I think it was actually the second time that happened. There is plenty of parking. You walk in and are seated by the hostess. The entry area is a bit... More

Wife and I went here for our first time tonight. Read a bunch of reviews first and they were pretty helpful. The hushpuppies were really good! Our server had no personality and was awkward but ok as far as taking our orders and everything. I did see multiple people requesting different tables and saying that the front room was too... More
