We arrived on a Monday evening and were quickly seated. The menu offers many delightful choices. I was in the mood to have an assortment of seafood and ordered the "Shore Bucket" which contains mussels, shrimp, clams, scallops, and red potatoes in a garlic/butter sauce....As an extra, I asked for linguini which is also mixed in. My wife ordered stuffed shrimp which came with a salad. As we waited, we enjoyed the fresh baked bread that was brought to the table. Prior to the arrival of our food, our server brought me a empty metal bucket to discard the shells, additional napkins, wet naps, and a plastic bib. The huge bowl that was placed in front of me contained enough food for two. It had everything that I mentioned above and was delicious. My wife enjoyed her stuffed shrimp dinner and took home leftovers. I was hungry, and ate the whole thing. The leftover broth was used to dip the bread in. Very tasty. The meal was a success. Staff is great, and the restaurant is clean.More

Lobsters are not what they used to be. Got two with hardly any meat in the claw. Lots of muscles and clams with it though

I had dinner here on September 19th and 21st. My friend & I dined at the bar both evenings. We had a few drinks, Chicken Parmigiana & Tilapia Francese on the first visit and Shrimp Parmigiana on the second visit. We both were impressed with...the food each meal. My tilapia was perfectly prepared. The portion of Shrimp Parmigiana was difficult to finish. The service was good as well both evenings. I haven't eaten here in along time and was apprehensive after reading a few of the recent reviews. But our experience was excellent.More

Went there with six people and will not return. We waited over an hour for a table. Waited ten minutes for a server. Waited another five minutes for drinks and another five minutes for bread. Ordered Oysters Rockefeller for an appetizer some had raw oysters....If you put Oysters Rock on the menu, learn how to make them. These were nothing but oysters with spinach put on top enr then baked. They were awful. Get the recipe from Antoines or Court of the Two Sisters in New Orleans. The raw oysters were passable. Ordered the Tuna steak and could not eat it without lots of soy sauce because it was overcooked and covered with sesame seeds which ruined whatever flavor was there. Some had the salmon which was passable but not up to good restaurant seasoning. Everyones vegetables were undercooked. The fish and chipe consisted of fish fingers and fries. Very poor experience.More

Quality fish dishes of good value in a festive atmosphere. Fish market in front of restaurant. Service can be slow and inattentive. Can get crowded toward dinner. Best to go early or for lunch.

My wife wanted seafood for Valentines Day. I placed an order 11:30 AM on V-day for 6:00pm pickup. We arrived at 6pm at which point were told “people still waiting for 5:30 pickup”. At 6:30 pm my wife was told “we can’t find your order”...-but it you want to wait we’ll place another order. (There were other people waiting that were made same offer) This ruined ValentDay special dinner☹️. I’ve lived in Rockland County for over 25 years. If you can find another Seafood restaurant I exhort you to run-not walk. Ownership of this successful establishment does not care about YOU.More

The food was fine. No complaints. Waited over 1 hour for take out after ordering on line hours before. Granted it was New Years Eve, and they were very busy. However, absolutely no communication as to when the food would be ready. People were waiting...in line outside in 38 degrees weather and no communication that they were backed up. If they told me they were backed up an hour I could have waited in the warm car patiently rather than hoping my order would be ready soon. Its as if I was doing them a favor by ordering their food. First time last time customer. As the guy ahead of me said when he got his order - 1 and out.More

Gilligan's offers Mondays only cheese pizza pies for 6.99 each. First, its a great deal. Second, it was prepared well, and tasted great. I ordered two pies, took them home, it was still warm, added some chicken pieces, slices peppers, and extra cheese to the...slices and heated in the microwave. The pizza is firm, does not bend, no drips, and great taste. Remember Gilligan's for a "What for dinner tonight" question.More

First, sign up for emails so that you are informed of weekly Take Out Tuesday specials. The meals change every week and include salad, bread, and the main dish that is enough for 4 people, at a reasonable price. Call in the time for pick...up, and your bagged meal will be waiting. The food has always been very good, and the loaf of bread is hot and soft. the salad includes their own dressing that is in a small container. Also a treat when I there for a pick up is their personal pizzas. 3 for $5 and is located prior to the paying counter. Treat yourself and family to Take Out Tuesday for a great deal of a meal.More

Although the food was good it doesn’t erase the terrible service or beyond filthy bathroom. There was a hair in the crab crackers. Waiter took order and that was it. Had to flag him down to get more drinks. He never checked in with us...or asked if we wanted anything else. Had to ask someone to clear table of salad plates and empty drinks. Sorry but won’t be back and we’ve eaten there many times.More

Love this establishment. Really adore the wonderful bartender,Jairo Don’forget the fantastic knowledge and hospitality of the the front fish men. Make sure u say hi to Andy, Rene and Steve. These guys always take good care of u and make sure every thing is fresh...I have never had bad service and the food is incredible. Fish is supreme and fresh. You can pick ur own lobsters to have cooked Pizza and Italian well worth the trip. Also Vito is the man with the plan. Any party or occasion he will take care of it PS a reason to love Tuesday $23.95 meal to feed six and salad and drag bread. My fav is shrimp and chicken Parmesan Also grandmas dinner $15 bucks a lb pasta chicken or salad meatball sausage and ricotta. can’t beat eatMore

Not terrible. Not great. Overcooked and greasy fish. Considering that they are also a fish market, that's not ok.

Good seafood and clean place to have a family dinner. I was a little disappointed with the soft shell crab appetizer but alfredo pasta with shrimps are good. Friends that have tried the steam dishes also loved it. Will try that next time

Yes they do have cocktails, no they do not have outside seating and they do not take reservations. The setting is casual but the food is fantastic. Bon appétit

I believe it is handicap accessible. Give them a call just to be sure, but I seem to remember no steps. You should be fine.
