This is my first review ever and I felt COMPLETELY compelled to write it. I went here once before and the food was ok so we decided to give it another shot since Dockside had a 1 hour wait. Well needless to say my wife's seafood plate was disgusting. I'm not going to lie I did get a burger and... More

We love Gilligan's as a great family restaurant! The menu offers a great selection, portions are generous, and the hushpuppies are fantastic! Our visit to the Beaufort Gilligan's was wonderful. Our server, David, handled several tables with ease and good humor. We ordered a special of lightly fried shrimp that was locally caught that day--so sweet and tasty! We will... More

The reviewer in the one review is just wrong. The food is not horrible but it is also not the greatest. We enjoyed it. Portions were a good size and tasty. I think going on a crowded night would be fun. The staff is very friendly and they want to help. Our waiter and blonde hair cut short on the... More

Saturday Lunch; flounder sandwich, fish, scallops, clam strips, shrimp, she-crab soup, boom-boom shrimp, hush puppies. It was all good. Table and bar service were also very good, drinks kept full. Very extensive selection, including lunch specials. Nice view. We would happily go back if we're ever in Beaufort again.

We went here after my husband graduated from D.I school and it was supposed to be a special occasion. Turned out to be the worst experience. The food was not impressive at all and for the price I expected a lot more. The hush puppy were gross and burnt. My food was cold when it came out, no joke. Like... More

First off let me qualify the visit... It was the end of Mother's Day and the staff was tired. However they were still very friendly! We had the coconut shrimp appetizer, (which was recommended), they shrimp were average sized but over cooked. They did not taste like coconut, but the chili dipping sauce was very good. My wife had shrimp... More
