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

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.
