Enjoyable lunch

Good food, good service. No complaints. The all-you can eat hush puppies were wonderful. The fried green tomato crab melt was delicious! We saved room for key lime pie for dessert. Yum!

We stopped here for lunch on our way back to our hotel from the Firefly Distillery. One of the girls who works there had recommended it. It was mid-afternoon so the place was not that crowded. We sat at the bar and were served drinks quickly. The bartender was friendly and made sure we liked our drinks. We ordered two... More

I ordered the grilled trio-combo, which included scallops. I asked for the scallops to be excluded. The server agreed to the request even offering additional shrimp.The scallops came any way. Not just as a section of the plate but deliberately scattered over all the other elements. The server said that while he had requested no scallops, the cook had told... More

maybe it was an off night, but service was poor - both slow and inaccurate - and the food and drinks were mediocre at best. Menu was not very descriptive of the actual dish that was delivered. We were disappointed and a bit frustrated overall.

So mediocre. There are SO many better seafood restaurants in charleston. Everything taste like it's been soaked in oil. The hush puppies are the only things with ordering.

We couldn't share the previous diners reviews. After purchasing a seagrass basket on the road our artist, Henry Ford, suggested this restaurant for lunch. Since it was just right down the road we decided to stop. Inside our outside seating was available. Since the road noise was loud we decided to eat inside. Our waitress quickly brought menus and we... More

We have been to Gilligan's before and have been very pleased. Our most recent visit was not a good one. I ordered a glass of wine, 20 minutes later (upon seeing it sitting on the bar) my husband got up and helped himself and the server never even apologized. I ordered She Crab Soup which is usually good - but... More

Went with a large group. Our waitress was really good about staying on top of our drink orders and getting all our orders correct. The hush puppies were very good, but I thought the she-crab soup was too thick and rich. It was so filling I barely touched the salad I had ordered. Overall very good place with good service.

We not been to Gilligan's for 3-4 years - it always had great seafood in the past. We ordered a dozen oysters and sent them back after eating one each, they were on the verge of going bad and tasted horrible. The fried oysters and flounder were both soggy and the coleslaw was warm and lacking any flavor. The side... More

Local fresh seafood. Had flounder and oyster dinner and next day went back for spinach salad with grilled scallops. Both meals were very tasty, and service was very courteous. Will dine there again on future trips.
