I stopped in Gilligan's Seafood Restaurant for dinner Friday night. When I entered through the front enterance the host saw that I was alone and suggested that I dine in the bar/lounge area. I took his suggestion and sat at the bar. And I sat, and I sat, and I sat. Eventually the host stopped by and asked if I... More

Having not eaten here for several years and wanted some fast seafood on a Labor Day, we decided to give it a try. The inside has not changed at all. It really needs to be updated. The place had a strange odor inside. The fried shrimp and oysters were average. I have certainly had better and certainly had worse. The... More

Food was o.k. shrimp and grits would have been better without the gravy. The atmosphere was good and the service was excellent.

We had a group of 13 so we called ahead to make sure they would be able to seat a group that large at 7:00 on a Friday night. We were informed by the employee if we would be at the restaurant within 30 minutes she would be able to seat us. She was able to quickly seat us but... More

Went there on vacation with the family. The children had fried shrimp children's plate, they said they were good. I had Seafood Trio; grilled scallops, shrimp and mahi mahi. The scallops were fantastic and the shrimp was good. The mahi was huge, probably 6-8 oz, but it didn't have a lot of flavor. (I had left overs and it was... More

This was our go to place for dinner on a recent vacation in the USA. While we stayed on the Isle of Palms we preferred to eat elsewhere and enjoyed the easy drive across the connector to Gilligan's at Mt Pleasant. Good wholesome food - huge portions - very tasty and well priced. My husband and two kids enjoyed everything... More

Over priced, for the food you get. Cost me and my wife $60 for shrimp and grits and cheese sticks. Go somewhere else.

Our family of 5 had a pleasant experience here. Food was average (I wouldn't say exceptional but could have been worse) and price was reasonable. We were disappointed in the dip we ordered for our appetizer. We were expecting a hot dip served with chips and it was a cold dip served with packaged crackers. Good family atmosphere.

We were a group of 26 adults and preteens on a day off from a mission trip. Gilligans had been recommended so I let them know we were coming in advance. When we were about 5 minutes out, I gave them a call and they had no clue we were on our way. However, when we arrived, they had the... More
