“Love Oysters?”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

A dozen chilled, DELICIOUS raw oysters served on ice (or, a dozen peeled shrimp, also on ice) - it's heaven on Hilton Head! And that's just for starters! Excellent seafood, and very good landlubber food, too. From the moment you enter you are treated as a friend and asked to linger and enjoy. Great, fresh food, highly knowledgeable wait staff and a delightful hostess make Gillan's a must stop! Bargain hunting? Go at Happy Hour! We went two nights in a row - it's THAT good!!

“For Seafood Lovers”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We have been to Gillan's, on Hilton Head Island, 3 times since our arrival 2 weeks ago. It is very busy with customers, which is always a good sign. The service was great. The prices are reasonable. If you are going for anything but seafood, you will be disappointed, which would be the only real "complaint". If you love seafood, have at it. Happy hour offers fresh local oysters at $0.75 a piece and excellent beverage prices.

The cook likes lots of cajun spicing. Even the apple/pecan crumble had a touch of "hot" in it. The ribs, also. Obviously, we'll be back.

“Love the new manu”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

My wife and I are frequent customers and have eaten at Gillan's since the opening . We had dinner this week when back on the island and had an outstanding meal off the new menu. They serve the best oysters on the island...the staff is skilled and truely understand that exceptional service is an art. I highly recommend this restaurant !!

“Afternoon Delight”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for happy hour after reading info in HH magazine. Paul was shucking oysters and turned us on to blackened oysters served at the bar. They were wonderful-a creation-a unique taste. Going back tomorrow!
