This is truly one of the top spots to eat in Harrisburg. The food is tremendous and the waitstaff is wonderful. The crab cakes are the best around and so are the ribs.

After an all day training, Gilligan's was a welcome respite. The service was excellent, the food was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. Best of all you could actually talk to the people you were with and be heard.

We were pleasantly surprised by such a fantastic meal! they only had their late-night menu which had a great selection of dinner entrées as well as sandwiches. We both decided to have the fillet and... More

We had excellent fresh American seafood - well cooked and well served. Very good and very friendly service. You can get a very good full meal. or just sandwiches and beverages. Back room pool tables. Large bar. Friendly casual crowd. Not too noisy. TV screens all over the place. Would go out of my way to eat here.

The Gilligans on Houcks road is excellent, we have never tried the one on Eisenhower Blvd. This location is a combination sports bar and restaurant. The sports bar has several televisions and a pool table. There is bar and table seating. There is another section set up as a dining room with booth and table seating. The variety of the... More

Their soups are made in house fresh and the sub bread is brought in from a bakery in the mornings... Definitly worth trying.

The staff at Gilligan's immediately make you feel at home. The manager I met - Belinda - is unbelievable - she couldn't help my son and me enough. The draft beer selection is good with several craft beers on tap. Just had appetizers and they were right on target.

We stop in Harrisburg on our way both south and north on our trip to/from FL and look forward to our meal at Gilligan's. My husband loves the prime rib and I order the eggplant parmesan. Both are great. Thin, crispy eggplant, with yummy sauce.
