We went there with our children for dinner on a weeknight. They were not very busy. Husband and son had all you can eat shrimp and I had surf n turf. Younger children had kids meals. Our server was great. I always eat the surf n turf. Unfortunately, the grits were a little dry (highly unusual) and they did away... More

We were on our way out to dinner when we passed the 3 course for $20. I love their hushpuppies. Our food was amazing! Sarah is an awesome waitress. We both were so stuffed, took the rest home

Wanted seafood while in the Charleston area, but had little time to get to some of our favorite spots. So Gilligan's it was. Service was friendly, food was served hot, very acceptable meal for this type restaurant. This place will never be a home run, but you are in the ballpark.

Twice in the last several months we have left without our main entree. An hour and a half wait AFTER ordering and still no food. They need to get it together!

Gilligan's is a popular chain in the area, and while the food is OK, it tends to be a bit too off the shelf instead of either fresh or creative. If you do not want to drive into Charleston or do not have the time and you like Captain D's with a bar, then it's OK.

The staff was very friendly and attentive. My husband's fried shrimp were delicious. My grilled shrimp, however, were overcooked with a burnt grill taste. In their defense, I didn't bring it to their attention.

Very friendly service, good food specials. I will bring my friends from work next time. I was greeted immediately at the door and asked for a preference in seating. I later learned that the person who seated me was Michelle the manager. She was knowledgeable and checked on me mid meal to make sure everything was good. My server Rhonda... More

Great place for lunch! Friendly waitress, wonderful fish tank! Caters to senior citizens! Had the shrimp pasta....yummy! A little pricey, but still good!

Can get better quality seafood for the same expensive price at lots of other places in the area. Service was terrible. Had to ask for refills and wait on everything for way too long. Definitely overpriced for frozen seafood. All of the fried food was swimming in grease.

What a great place to each. Very casual dining and family oriented. The food was fresh and the portions are generous. I look forward to visiting this restaurant again.
