The restaurant definitely would be best defined simply by its name. From the food they offer to the atmosphere they provide, it's a mix of a seafood restaurant (Gilligan), a burger place (grill) and a bar. My friends and I all ordered a variety of foods: seafood pasta, quesadilla, salmon, and burgers to name a few. We all thoroughly enjoyed it! I wouldn't recommend coming here if you don't plan to spend more than $20 on a meal, but for $20+, they make it worth the money. The garlic bread (Texas style) was nothing special, but still good. They had pool tables there ($1 per game), so my friend and I did several games after dinner. Overall, it was a good time with good food, and the service there was very friendly. I haven't been in the area long; but for a town that doesn't seem to offer much, this place is a plus for them. I would definitely go back there again.

Located across the street from LaQuinta Harrisburg, on Houke Road.
Superb Prime Rib in two sizes Queen and King. Queen is the average 12 oz size and comes with two sides. The King...Lord have mercy....almost 16 plus ounces plus the two sides. Way to many sides to choose from so you might have trouble making your selection!
This restaurant also has two sides. One side is the casual Sports Bar & Grill and the other side is quiet Fine Dining. Do whatever you're in the mood for, they've got it. Just wear stretchy pants when you go! Bon Appetit!

We stopped here for a drink and dinner before heading to our hotel for the evening. My husband had a chicken dish that he really enjoyed and I had a veal dish which I also enjoyed along with a ceasar salad. The food is nothing fancy but it's prepared well. They are apparently known for their chicken wings. We didn't order any, but a fellow sitting near us at the bar ordered some with a white sauce and they looked delicious.

Ordered a salad to go for lunch. Portion was very generous and it was ready for pick up when they said. The only downside was the dressing was a bit too much; should have asked for it on the side. It's personal preference, but I don't like my food swimming in dressing.
Will not hesitate to go back.

My family and I visited Gilligan's last Friday night. We have eaten here more than a few times and never had any negative experiences. Unfortunately I can't say that about our most recent visit. This place is a cross between sports bar and slightly fine dining with a diverse menu. I had the Kobe roast beef sandwich. Not good. Too much fat in the meat. My wife had the Kobe roast beef club and had the same experience. But the biggest disappointment was the side order of fries my daughter received. I included a picture which is exactly what we received. Very few fries and a few were undercooked. The only reason I'm giving three stars was for the service. Our server was very good. She was friendly, smiled, and engaged with us. I did not say anything about the lack of fries. I just won't go back. It's surprising that no one on the staff noticed that someone was budgeting the fries.
