We just got back from eating here, and my wife and I both got sick. They served her a trout that was rotten. I'm not kidding, the fish was rotted. We had eaten here last year, and the place was packed, the food was good. We got in the mood for seafood tonite, decided to go over there, and there... More

I just read that Gilligan's in Lexington is a SC Aquarium Sustainable Seafood Restaurant so my husband and I had to try it out. I read the Trip Advisor reviews and almost didn't go. Most of the reviews were terrible. I'm glad we went. We were there for lunch on Sunday. We had the she crab soup which was very... More

IMHO, Gilligan's in Lexington is the best in the midlands and that would also include Augusta, GA. We have eaten here numerous times (including today) and the food, atmosphere, comfort, service, and cleanliness has always been outstanding. Thanks for the outstanding service from Megan today. Our meal was absolutely delicious.

My wife and I tried the place just because it was nearby and had a patio. I guess we should have gotten the signal from the 3 or 4 people working in nearby shops if the place had good food ~ none of which had ever tried the place despite sharing the same parking lot. I had the Cajun Shrimp... More

Not impressed. Food ok. would not eat here again. Place had an odor. Needs a cleaning. Friend asked for bread and server said it would be extra. When asked how much server did not know but when prompted said he would check with manager. It was $1.99 and took 10 minutes to bring out.

Hubby & I left the kids home (thankfully as they would've been miserable at this place) and headed for some seafood. We have eaten at the Gilligan's via boat on the way down the river to Charleston and it was fine for a quick lunch stop. As others mentioned, we should've heeded the red flag -it wasn't crowded for a... More

Usually we're a patient couple, but this place stretched our limits. Had to wait until all of party there for reservations for 10....7 of us there as other 3 came from long distance with toddler. Dumb...seat your customers and take drink order and appetizers which we readily ordered. Took 15 minutes to get to of our party's cups of coffee... More

The food was good and the restaurant was nice. Not crowded at all. Food was fresh and hot. The price was a bit high, but the food was good.
