“Outstanding meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We had an excellent meal, grilled fish and shrimp. Huge shrimp, loved the grilled veggies. The only drawback was smoking. You do have the option of eating outside. They did have a band playing.

“excellent food and good music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

We had fried, fresh fish, smothered fries, grill shrimp all were cooked perfect. The very large shrimp tasted like lobster. The grilled vegetables are spiced nicely...they were the best that I have ever been served. I really liked the homemade blue cheese dressing and the fresh tomatoes on the leaf lettuce, garden salad. We will be going back for more.

“Dark Smokey Bar with good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

My first impression was, Man this place is too dark, then because it is a bar my next thought was smells like cigarettes. Once we stumbled through the dark and found a place to sit at the bar we were greeted by a very friendly blonde bartender who was very helpful in assisting us in our food selections. However I made the mistake of ordering the fish ribs just to see what they were like. It was very tasty but as the description indicates full of rib bones. It was too hard to eat around the bones in the dimly lit area. You need to install better lighting.

“Solid Late Night Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

My husband and I stopped at Giggity's for a late night bite on a Friday night after traveling from Austin. The server was attentive and nice when we ordered food at 12:30 p.m. as the kitchen is open until one in the morning. Fried tortellinis were a tasty starter with an aioli sauce. I would have preferred them with marinara sauce. The grilled fish po' boy with fire-roasted vegetables was delicious, although the vegetables on the side were slightly over-seasoned. I liked it though! The fish was fresh. Husband enjoyed the Kobe burger which he has tried in the past. It was cooked to perfection. The long blonde haired bartender was somewhat rude. We were not impressed with her attitude when we asked a few questions, but the other table server was delightful. Note: This is a bar and patrons can smoke here. Thankfully, there were not many folks smoking when we ate.
