Having fish and chips at the beach is a tradition in our family, but these were disappointing. The chips were good, but my piece of fish tasted of ammonia and was inedible. For what they charged it should have been first rate.

We had a wonderful lunch here on a perfect summers day. Fish and chips just like you expect- crisp chips, fresh delicious fish and friendly staff. Reading the other reviews l'm wondering if we were just lucky but this was the best fish and chips l've had for ages and fish and chips is my favourite naughty food treat. In... More

the people running this place need to employ better staff instead of putting so much pressure on the Juniors there. in peak summer time took 90 minutes to get our order. they ran out of tomato and tartare sauce

The fish and chips were good, not great, but good. The prices are not good or great, they are ridiculous. There have done a good job renovating the servo and the cooking area is very clean, they are also licensed. But did I mention the prices are ridiculous.

We have had fish & chips from Gilligans a few times but haven't found their grilled fish to be that good. I don't believe it's the best choice for fish & chips in Barwon Heads.

We had dinner here last weekend and it was really great. The batter was crispy and the fish delicious. A great find.

Under new Management it seems. They appeared pretty clueless in what they were doing. The chips were what "they" were famous for now they are like potato jems. Looks like they have changed the oil type too. They were the world's best fish and chip shop on the Geelong Waterfront, we had them every weekend when I was a kid... More
