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

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.

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 food came out hot but got cold fast.... More

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
