We ate lunch here every day while staying on the beach. Good selection of food. I would not really bother though unless I was staying at The Hilton. Typical burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers.

My wife and I ate lunch at Gilligan's several times. We ended up sharing an ahi tuna salad and a couple of Balashi beers. This was perfect for a lunch that doesn't fill you up for dinner. The service was very nice as well.

I had lobster roll and it was delicious. The service was great and the staff was very nice! Ocean view for the meal was always a plus. They only open for certain hours so make sure you check before you go.
