Good Seafood

We like to visit Gilligan's when we are in the Charleston area. Our favorite is a tray of roasted oysters. Three of us got those and our other person got fried oysters. The oysters were smaller than usual, but very tasty. The key lime pie and peanut butter pie were very good too. Their hush... read more

Found this place by chance (we are from Georgia). The Waiter DJ was the BEST and took our practical joking well.. Food was in great portions, fried clams were so sweet, crunchy and HEAPING over the bowl, Salad dressing OH My, the house Tomato and Vidalia onion I wish I could have bought a bottle to take home..And the Crabs...

Went here Sunday night...not many customers and we soon learned why. A dank smell in the place and the parking lot and a broom and dust pan stayed propped on a table near use the whole time we were there. We ordered the fried shrimp and oyster platters. The shrimp were cold and rubbery. The oysters were mediocre. Salad was... More

We (a family of 4) were looking for some casual grub near our hotel. This place looked like a relaxed place to grab a bite. It was pretty quiet but we arrived pretty late on a Tues so I suppose that's to be expected. We received a warm welcome and had it not been for that I would've turned on... More

We arrived around 5pm so it wasn't rush hour. We were seated at a table overlooking the pond. The food! Huge servings and priced right. Highly recommend this place to eat.

This is a great place for fried fish, shrimp, and hushpuppies! That's all we've ordered there, but what we got was very good! We enjoy sitting out on the patio next to a pond. It has a neighborhood feel, and is actually in one. The puppies are outstanding, but will fill you up before your entrees get to the table!... More

A good time can be had at this place. The tables have wholes in the middle for different seafood parts to be thrown. It's fun to eat there and the service is great....so is the food.

It's shrimping season off the South Carolina coast so we went for seafood at Gilligan's. Apparently no one else got the memo. We were the only ones in the restaurant. They put us at the corner table with flat lighting and a claustrophobic feeling. I chose a salad as a side--it was small rather ordinary. The grilled shrimp was good... More

We have eaten here before & it's the reason we chose it again. The food was good & the staff seemed anxious to take care of every need. The management even offered to help us find a hotel & enter the address into our GPS.
