First impression - the music! loved the music and i danced in the place and sat in my seat and danced there while having dinner. My server, Britney?, was excellent! the food was hot and delish! the manager came over... More

As stated above, the food quality is in decline. Order "sea scallops " and got what looks like small bay scallops. Taste ok. Service acceptable but food...?

When we lived in My Pleasant, Gilligan's was one of our favorite restaurants. Their hush puppies are so good! My husband and I both enjoyed the Crispy Fried Whole Flounder and it was excellent. It's nice to go back to a place that you remember fondly and find that it's still just as good as you remember! Oh, did I... More

We visited Gilligan's by chance, mainly because the first three places we tried that were in the Coleman Blvd area had a 45 minute or more wait. Gilligan's turned out be a great place. The food was good, the staff friendly. Our popcorn shrimp and shrimp gumbo arrived quickly and piping hot. I'm sure the locals know about it, I'm... More

We came here for dinner and the food was really good and fresh. Our waiter never left us waiting, and the manager came out to personally check on us and to make sure everything was a-ok. We will be visiting again, the all you can eat steamed oysters are outstanding!!!

We arrived here for a late lunch Christmas week. Two members of the party stopped in the restrooms on the way in. The restaurant was very dark and lacked the charm we experienced in so many of the wonderful seafood restaurants we dined in during our stay. There is a water view that is pleasant. The restaurant smelled horrible. We... More

On a Tuesday night, I went to dinner at Gilligans' Seafood Restaurant. It has been at this location for many years. This is a shopping center location but, a stand alone restaurant. There is patio dinning as well as inside tables and booths. The seafood is always very fresh and delicious. During "R" months they have buckets of steamed oysters!... More

This place was really good. It really surprised us because the outside didnt match the inside. The outside seemed like it was going to be really expensive but when you walked in it was so fun and laid back. This is a great for families too.

I went for lunch particularly to find shrimp and grits since have found no good place serving them in NC. I was especially pleased to find them at reasonable price ($10.00) on their lunch menu. The food was SO good and staff friendly. In addition to shrimp, had slices of link sausage which was especially delicious. I would certainly go... More
