Would go again

Food was good for the money. The hush puppies were probably my favorite. ( I can be a hush puppy critic). Great if your wanting some seafood but Dont want to drive to Charleston or pay outrageous prices. Would certainly recommend.

We enjoyed our Easter dinner. Always such a joy getting together with family and friends for good food and great service. My husband and several others decided on the all you can eat shrimp. I enjoyed my grilled scallops and grits. They have really good cheesy grits. Our server was on the ball and our Hostess, Sandra, was gracious as... More

Gilligan's has become our seafood destination during on our annual Easter Weekend on the Isle of Palms. Our large family (15) really looks forward to Gilligan's and they have never let us down. I always have the excellent shrimp & sausage gumbo. Leave off the rice and get an order of cheesy grits - the best grits anywhere). Male members... More

Lots of choices if you're in the mood for seafood. Food is fresh. Lovely view of creek in dining room. Our waiter struggled. Long wait for food, then long wait for check.

We sat outside because the autistic boy we are traveling w gets messy. So we let him help pick. Well he loved it but the waiter was slow. There werent many people there. The staff was friendly. The food was fantastic. I just felt service could have been a little better

We stopped at Gilligans the first time because it was close to where we were staying, and then went back again! Food was great, it has a casual atmosphere, and staff was friendly and helpful!

Hush puppies good, soup not so much, kind of thick cream soup not much she crab. Order what they are known for fried shrimp and you won't go wrong. Ive tried lots of great... More

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 asked if I'd like... 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.
