We have typically enjoyed Gilligan's over the years as we boated in or drove to it. We have looked forward to going. The outdoor tiki bar is usually a fun place to be and see what's happening in Chetek. The inside bar area really needs some rehab. The all-you-can eat fried fish was really good on Friday night. We had ordered the "treasure chest" appetizer for 4 adults and two kids for $14.95? Do not be fooled. It is not a treasure chest of appetizers and is far from it. It was just plain skimpy. This is coming from someone who enjoys food, but also portion control. The appetizer was disappointing. I think also Gilligan's is trying to make up business by pushing drinks. I have never actually been annoyed to this point by the server asking if we would like more drinks (beer). I was this time. She was a great server except the first words of every sentence seemed to be "can I get you a refill?" and even asked someone else at the table if she could fill the drinks for the those of us that left for the salad bar. We will probably go back and hope for a better visit next time. I hope that Gilligan's addresses some of these points soon!

The pizza is good, but the salad bar is minimal. The fried fish is a little over cooked, the fries are frozen. All in all, it will keep the wolf from the door, but it isn't the North Woods supper club you'll wish you found.

We came in around 8:45pm because we had been out fishing. My husband and I both had the prime rib. They had quite a few potato choices, but we took a baked potato. The potato a had bew precipice and held hot, so it was not very good. The salad bar was okay, not too much to get excited about. The prime rib w as very good. The service was okay, prtetty attentive. It looked fun and noisy for younger people of bar scene type, we were there for food and left within an hour.

Gilligan's is fun anytime during the year, but in the summer the Tiki Bar makes it even more fun.

The food is always good and service is friendly. Trivia night is always fun and the buck burgers are great. Salad bar is fresh and soup is good.
The regular menu is difficult to find all the choices on, it seems to be lacking some of the regular choices.
