Enjoyed the little area that this restaurant is located in. If I was a shopper I would probably come back and look around further.

She crab soup was gooey instead of creamy. I think it came out of a can instead of being made fresh. Crabcake was mushy and there was not any lump crab in it like the menu said. It also had a strange taste. The crab meat probably came from a can, too. Fried pickles and hush puppies were great. Will... More

Only place we could find hush puppies. Which are not on the menu by the way. To get fresh shrimp we had to pay $1 more, confusing? Boiled shrimp was flavorful with Old Bay. Grits were fine, fried okra was cold. We were the only people there on a Weds. night. Staff was super nice

Very comfortable restaurant with personable, friendly staff and delicious seafood. The hushpuppies are the best!

Went on a Sunday evening and was seated quickly. Service was quick but didn't offer any suggestions. We had the fried flounder, crab cakes and the grilled scallops. Mixed results: scallops were very good, crab cakes okay but the onion overpowered the crab taste, the flounder was plain at best. Could not taste the fish. Overall was okay.

I do not normally give negative reviews… So this is hard for me. My family and I ate here on the Sunday of Fourth of July weekend. When we arrived about 8:30 PM we were told there would be a 45 minute to an hour wait. It was visible that there was only two tables in the bar area that... More

We eat at Gilligan's our first night in town (then make a trip to the grocery store- located in same area). WE love their hushpuppies and seafood. Have never been disappointed! Never a huge wait and good service!

The fun atmosphere was great. Food good. Had 2 different fish dinners. Waiter was nice and friendly. Laughed at corny jokes. Checked on us several times. Bathrooms were "manetees" and "mermaids". Good for the price.

Our family ate here this evening and really enjoyed the meal. I had grilled, fresh-caught shrimp which were flavored nicely, although a tad bit salty. We ordered our small son the children's fish meal, and it was out for him before we even ordered our meals, which was great! Our server, Britt, was excellent...very pleasant and checked on us often.... More

Ordered the shrimp pasta including locally-caught shrimp. The pasta was absolutely the worst cooked pasta I've ever eaten. Cooked so long it was almost mush. The shrimp was under seasoned and tough. Only average cleanliness and wait staff. Not at all worth the cost.

Thank contourrob
