Sorry. We searched this restaurant out for lunch, but NOTHING we had was good, nothing!! The slaw was like a blob of mayo with some chopped cabbage mix; the She Crab Soup tasted like canned slop; the grilled scallops were rubbery, over cooked and awful. The day manager was really nice and tried so hard to be helpful as he... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a meal here after long day on road. Rum punch was accompanied by appetizer of fried green tomatoes and crab cakes. Appetizer was superb! Dinner was fried fisherman's platter and shrimp and grits. Seafood platter was really good, but the shrimp and grits (stone ground with cheddar cheese) and brown gravy was out of this world. Great...

Food was OK but the service was lacking. The waiter forgot the drinks until bringing the Salad. Soup came out with the meal which should not happen. We use to enjoy this Restaurant. It may have just been the Server.

Very nice restaurant tucked amid a shopping complex. Raw bar and local all-you-can-eat peel-n-eat shrimp. Staff was helpful and patient as we perused the menu. Service was quick and food hot. Nothing stuck out making them an 'exceptional' seafood place; however, considering the neighborhood - "par for the course" is a compliment. Stiff competition locally and Gilligan's holds their own.... More

What a wonderful evening we had at this restaurant. Thomas the mgr and Rhonda our server were just so friendly and social we felt like we were regulars when this was actually our first time here. The food was excellent and portions were too large to eat for one meal. Prices were excellent too. Nice "sea" decor! My friend wanted... More

OK you cannot go to the low country having seafood. Gilligan's is the spot. They have quite a few locations around town.

Ordered scallop/fried flounder combo. Scallops chewy and inedible. Flounder barely edible. Hushpuppies seemed to be mostly grease. Service was very good, as was the atmosphere. Pimiento cheese appetizer excellent. Friends seemed to enjoy their fried flounder.

Disappointed in parking. there were limited handicapped spots and the one I needed in order to take son out the side with wheelchair lift was taken. so we parked in the back of the lot under shade, which was nice. but still only one spot had the room necessary to get a...

A good place to take our large family. The seafood is good. The hush puppies are excellent. Good raw & steamed oysters.
