“Decent Food, Service, but a Noisy Place”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We arrived hungry and departed with well filled stomachs. I had no issues with food quality, nor did my family members. Service was ok, though I did have to ask for a beverage refill (I can never understand the server who neglects to keep a watchful eye on what's in the drink glasses). The place is just downright loud with its extra high ceilings. It is difficult to have a conversation with the person sitting across from you at the table. Unless you wish to wait for a half hour +, go a little before dinner (4 pm) as this place does pull in the crowds for whatever reason (I think it is a lack of seafood places in that part of Rockland county). This is not extraordinary dining, it's average - a notch above a Red Lobster.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I have been going to C&M fish market for years and heard about Gilligans some time back but never tried it. I'm glad we finally did. Excelent! Great prices, great food quality, great service. Lobster for one could have fed 2. 1 1/4 pound lobster, 1 dozen clams, and what seemed to be 3 dozen mussels. Coffee?, who had room.
We'll be back, very soon!

“Wait worth it”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We've been to gilligan's several times since it opened. There is always a 15-30 minute wait for a table. We have never had a problem with service, food quality of pricing. It is a loud resturant with extra high ceilings which seem to amplify the noise. It is not a place for quiet dining. Food is very good.
