Great selection on menu

Specials offered and wide variety on menu! Beautiful scenery inside and out! Outside dining offered. Can be casual or dressy. The cheese grits are AWESOME! It was my mom's birthday and the waitress brought her out a free piece of key lime pie! It was VERY cold in the restaurant which meant... read more

Your average tourist seafood spot with a lot of fried food. We had three orders of crab legs and they were all over cooked. I would skip this place as I am sure there are better seafood restaurants in Mt. Pleasant.

On vacation, we had Father's Day dinner here. Our waitress was so nice and the hush puppies were like nothing we had ever had before! Yummy! Dad loved the gumbo and Mom loved the fish tacos. Teenager son said his burger was great and tween son loved the chicken fingers. Four dinners, 2 sodas, 2 bar drinks, and tip came... More

We got to go food for dinner and it was great. The hush puppies were quite yummy! Husband had seafood stew (or something of the sort) He said he enjoyed it but wished it would have had some broth with it. I had Chicken Gilligan and enjoyed that as well.

Went there with family. Food I would guess would be similar to Red Lobster. Definitely not the place to go for seafood when you live in an areas with hundreds of great restaurants around. The grilled seafood was pretty bland, I'd recommend going with fried since that is hard to mess up. Service was slow but manager on duty was... More

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.

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
