Gilligan's has anything from hamburgers to great steak and seafood dinners ~ domestic beer to elegant wines and cocktails. It has a great atmosphere with sports TV and / or music. Friendly bartenders and waitresses compliment this clean and relaxed bar. I never go to Harrisburg without stopping at Gilligan's at least once!

Ate at Gilligan's with several family members. The special that night was Osso Bucco and it was delicious - no one in our party had a bad meal. The restaurant was pleasant, though not crowded. The service was good and our meal came quickly. On the whole it was a very enjoyable evening.

Passing through decided to try this place and were very satisfied with the sandwiches and gyros, we were seated fast and the food was out fast however the service was poor. We sat with empty glasses of soda until the hostess actually noticed and it took a long time to get our bill as our waitress was noticed hanging out with her co workers in a group while her tables were unattended and the restaurant was not even busy.

But the prime rib was PERFECTO!!! We inadvertently walked into the bar side, and were redirected into a beautiful restaurant. We still didn't know what to expect. But GET THE PRIME RIB! I can't say anymore. It's worth the $21.99 price. Well worth it.

Gilligan's is a sports bar & grill which I recently visited on a somewhat busy Saturday night as it was directly across the street from my hotel. The business is split into two separate sides: one side holds a restaurant while the other contains a sports bar & grill. Chose to sit in the non-smoking section of the bar & grill. Please be advised smoking is allowed in the sports bar. The menu was quite extensive. Fifteen different appetizers, fourteen different sandwiches, thirteen seafood offerings, eleven different types of subs, six different types of burgers & four soup varieties, including French Onion & chili. The menu also contains selections of chicken, gyros, lamb & pork chops, pasta, prime rib, ribs, salads, steaks & wings. There were vegetarian offerings, a kid's menu & desserts. I chose the chef's salad which I found average at best. It contained delicatessen processed type ham & turkey, instead of the real meat items. The serving size was generous. The bar drew a pretty good crowd for a Saturday night and it appeared to be a locals hangout. There's a front & back bar, three pool tables and a game room. There are probably 20 or more large flat screen TV's throughout the bar showing all types of sports. And with at least 22 beer selections on tap, it's kind of hard to go thirsty. The smoking is a draw back, but the menu & drink offerings were moderately priced and the place did have a good atmosphere/vibe. If I was looking for a good watering hole to catch a game, or even meet a Ginger or Mary Anne, this would be a good choice. Recommended.
