Long wait and not very good service.

We arrived just beforet 8:00 PM and was told there would be a 30 minute wait. There was an outside waiting area and after an hour my wife went inside to see why they had not called us. She was told they must have not programed the alert system properly. I thought it was odd to wait at all... read more

My family stops in Gilligan's every year on our way into Isle of Palms for vacation. It's never disappointed us, food is always fresh and tasty, staff is always friendly, and the hushpuppies are delicious. Prices are very reasonable too.

If you're going to go to the gilligan's in charleston ask if Matthew is working. My husband and I go to gilligans almost weekly and Matthew is by far the best and most capable server working there. The food is great, but the awesome service made it so much better!

Food is served hot. Many choices of seafood or chicken. Scallops and shrimp can't be beat. We live in Charleston and can get our own seafood, but Gilligan's come close to home cooked. The service and waiters are efficient and most helpful. Nice treat.

We sat on the outside deck by the water. So beautiful! Our server, Hunter, was very good & friendly. I'm not usually a big hush puppy fan at seafood joints, but these were the best I have ever had! They were a sweet cornbread flavor. I have never had grits & liked it, but the shrimp & grits was amazing!... More

While the happy hour was only $1 off for drinks and no food, we were really looking for seafood. We got a steam bucket which was ok. Plenty of food for a couple to share but floors were just ok. On tap beer selection was limited to only 4 beer also which was disappointing.

Found a good, solid, family style seafood restaurant that made everyone in my party happy. Service was great even with one dish that was messed up. Would definitely return!

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.
