The restaurant manager and our waiter were both very helpful and friendly. They seemed to care a great deal about our satisfaction. The food was good, but we weren't expecting the large wet bucket in the middle of the table - it actually fits down in the table for shells and such to be thrown in to. Something about that... More

We had a great dinner. Family and Church friends Friday "gathering" was as always enjoyable. My scallops=GREAT, Mr.'s AUCE-Shrimp=LOVED 'EM and the BEST cheesy grits=EVER. All of the others thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. Looking forward to our next visit.

Looked at all of the reviews for Charleston area and seems like no matter who you talked to all of the seafood places were the same and pricey so we stopped at Gilligans because it was close and it was no exception. Seated and served in a reasonable time. The seafood platter was just average. My wife got the ribeye... More

We like to eat at Gilligan's in Mt. Pleasant when we're in the Charleston area and we've always enjoyed it. Our most recent visit was honestly excellent - the oysters and shrimp were fantastic (very fresh, fried but not at all greasy), EXCELLENT cheese grits, and their hushpuppies are our favorite. Everyone we spoke with there was friendly and courteous.... More

If you like good southern seafood this is the place. We particularly liked the flounder and the green beans. Hushpuppies were delicious.

I stopped in Gilligan's Seafood Restaurant for dinner Friday night. When I entered through the front enterance the host saw that I was alone and suggested that I dine in the bar/lounge area. I took his suggestion and sat at the bar. And I sat, and I sat, and I sat. Eventually the host stopped by and asked if I... More

Having not eaten here for several years and wanted some fast seafood on a Labor Day, we decided to give it a try. The inside has not changed at all. It really needs to be updated. The place had a strange odor inside. The fried shrimp and oysters were average. I have certainly had better and certainly had worse. The... More

Food was o.k. shrimp and grits would have been better without the gravy. The atmosphere was good and the service was excellent.

We had a group of 13 so we called ahead to make sure they would be able to seat a group that large at 7:00 on a Friday night. We were informed by the employee if we would be at the restaurant within 30 minutes she would be able to seat us. She was able to quickly seat us but... More

Went there on vacation with the family. The children had fried shrimp children's plate, they said they were good. I had Seafood Trio; grilled scallops, shrimp and mahi mahi. The scallops were fantastic and the shrimp was good. The mahi was huge, probably 6-8 oz, but it didn't have a lot of flavor. (I had left overs and it was... More
