Worst meal I've had. Oysters were full of mud. I also ordered grits. I was brought "cheese" grits. It tasted like instant grits mixed with the powered cheese you get to make easy mac... I was told they don't have plain grits.. Big price for what seems to be frozen and boxed food. Manger was nice... read more

Went on Valentine's Day, so maybe things are normally better. The place was packed. They advertised the best pina colada in Charleston, son I went for it. Comes with whipped cream, cherry, pineapple,and chocolate sauce. Tasted like they forgot the alcohol. Skip it. Looks much better than it tastes. The food was good, but we've had much better. For the... More

We stopped in here based on ratings from Tripadvisor. So glad we did. Very quiet on a Monday at 1, but welcomed and sat quickly. I had the Fried Shrimp, red beans and rice and coke slaw. Friend had the Fried Flounder, FF and cole slaw. 1st hush puppies are delicious....really good! Our lunches came quickly and HOT, believe it... More

Omg! We love this place, ate here three times on a recent trip to Charleston area. Firstly, this restaurant was walking distance from Homewood Suites, secondly, it has a parking lot which came in handy after we got completely drenched at Charles Pinckney Historic Site. Hostess we great, she greeted us like regulars from the first visit, service was prompt... More

Decided to give this local chain one more try. The Summerville SC location left much to be desired. I am happy to report that this location in Mt. Pleasant is exceptional. Went for lunch on Sunday 4 Jan 15. Exceptional service, reasonable prices and as others have stated the best Hush-puppies I have ever had. The food was also outstanding,... More

Our family visited here on a recommendation from someone who lives in the area. It was a great suggestion. The food was very good. The She-crab soup was very good. And the hushpuppies were the best I've ever eaten. It's a semi-casual restaurant. Great for families, dates, and special occasions. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was nice.

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
