Nice enough place but it does get real busy and then service seems to come to a halt. Took forever to get food and sat for nearly 30 minutes with an empty drink glass.

Ate here after church on Sunday. Absolutely the best fried clams I have ever had! My brother had the fried shrimp and loved it! Hush puppies great. Had the fried green tomato and crab cake appetizer - outstanding! The coffee was excellent. After we bragged about the coffee, our server got the name of it for us. Will definitely eat here again.

One of the "older"Gilligan restaurants but very popular. It does fill up fast at prime times - Dinner / Sunday after Church etc.

Still good value for the price. No skimpy serving's. Something for everyone . And Please keep those Hushpuppies coming !

Fun and Festive walls get into the spirit of eating at Gilligan's.

Tip; If someone says let's eat at the Gilligan's in "Summerville" they mean this one.
I know it's located in Ladson, but be a "Local",it's considered the Summerville Gilligan's !

I liked the fried shrimp and the hushpuppies were excellent. The service was great and very helpful. Good speciality drinks too. I would go back again and again.
