The view was wonderful but that is about all that I can rave about this place. The food was average at best. The server did not want to be working or serving our table. I have never felt more uncomfortable with how negative she was that it brought down the mood of our date night. I don't know if we'll... More

Us 3 women friends stopped here for a late lunch because the Angel Tree restaurant was closed on Monday. We like to eat locally caught shrimp, so we asked if they had any and they said YES so that's what we ordered and with 2 upgraded sides it was $22.76. The baked potato (an upgrade) that I got was fantastic!... More

Had lunch with friends after sightseeing. It was about 2:30 so the place was pretty empty. Service was very good and we all enjoyed our meals. The fried seafood platter was very tasty.....shrimp, scallops, clams & flounder with one side. Portions were large and they have some really funky drinks!

Upon entering the hostess stand was empty, one of the servers noticed us and sat us after a brief confusion. I ordered the Seafood Trio and the Nahi Nahi was way overcooked tougher then chicken breast. The Scallops were so over cooked I couldn't hardly cut them with the knife. Shrimp not so much better either. Oddly the seafood was... More

There is something comfortable and familiar with a casual seafood restaurant! The menu and service makes this a cut above!! The shrimp plate is delicious! No frills, but you leave full for a reasonable price!

I thought our visit was jus good nothing special! The wait was a bit long especially with the number of open tables available. I liked the salad I got but my husband ordered a seafood trio dish and he said all the fried foods tasted the same like everything is cooked in the same grease. My kids liked the fish... More

A very disappointing experience. We were expecting casual -- that wasn't the problem. but the service was poor -- we had time to look over the menu thoroughly and make our choices before a wait person ever came to our table and asked if we wanted drinks. We were about to leave when a waitress finally came, but she had... More

Having frequented Gilligans each of the last 25 years, it is with great sadness that I pen this review. Last nights meal suffered on too many levels to allow me to return. From the disinterested hostess stand, the obvious understaffing( there's nothing worse for hungry patrons than to look at several empty tables and wait 45 minutes when they were... More

We go to Gilligan's every summer with the entire family so we were very disappointed at our most recent visit. We had to ask for the children's menus, ask for our hush puppies and waited ages for our orders to be taken. A side order of red rice arrived after the main course was nearly finished! We never got refills... More
