After several years of purchasing marvelous fresh seafood and meats from the friendly staff at Gillies, we were heartbroken to see the For Sale signs in the window late this spring. We also enjoyed several fantastic meals in the restaurant. One of us had the fish and chips, which were scrumptious, while the other had a simple salmon dish. The... More

Like the title of the review said, this place was a gem. Easily the best seafood in the immediate area, and a great bar scene to boot. Its closure is a great loss for West Brattleboro.

It can't get fresher - it can't get better. Great host and server staff. Do oyster shots for starters.

We saw and heard nothing but great reviews about Gillies, but it's nothing more than a glorified diner. Two out of the three appetizers we ordered, they were out of! We had to send both of our flavorless steaks back to be cooked, they were literally raw inside. Once the food returned, potato and vegetable were cold. Debs famous chocolate... More

I chose this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews. It was great! I had the lobster bisque and lobster bites. The lobster bisque was very good, but the lobster bites were excellent. For $10, it's on the appetizer menu and is more lobster than you'd get if you ordered one at market price. It does come fried, but it was easy... More

Like most good seafood restaurants I've tried, Gillies' decor is really bland, but the menu is terrific. My husband had the cioppino and thought it was as good as he's had in Marseilles and other Mediterranean ports. I ordered seafood Alfredo and it had tons of shrimp and scallops in a sinfully rich cream sauce. Very satisfying. This restaurant also... More

We have been to Gillies at least 6 times over the last four months and have sampled many items from the menu; soups, clams, mussels, calamari, swordfish, sea bass, to name a few dishes. The food is ALWAYS fresh and properly seasoned, we have never been anything but completely satisfied with our meals. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and there... More

Food was excellent. My wife order a shrimp basket, and only received 7 shrimp and fries for $13.99 but no cole slaw. The Shrimp was of good size and I thought the value was a good price. I had ordered the fisherman combo platter I had the option of ordering two or three items I choose three, whole belly clams,... More
