Saturday night we wanted some good seafood and local flavor without breaking the bank. The specials were crispy flounder for 18.95, or all-you-can eat cluster oysters and fried shrimp for 30. I don't care for oysters, but love shrimp, but got the crispy grouper which I shared with my wife. It was awesome, and more than we eat, even splitting!... More

In the beginning my friend and I got a little frustrated because we had to wait 45 min to get a table. After getting it, we had to wait more to be attended. But the staff made it up to us. They awesomely did a good service in attending us afterwards. The food is FANTASTIC! Very tasty!! It was worth... More

Great food, My wife had the fish and chips and I the fish tacos and we were amazed at the quality of the food. Her fish was outstanding, crisp and not soggy fresh and fall apart big chunks of white meat fish. My tacos were splendid, and the salad was fresh and delicious. We returned the next day with My...

We've visited this spot on several occasions and food has varied. This past time, I got the peel and eat shrimp and husband got fried shrimp. It must've been a bad time for shrimp but the shrimp for both of us was pathetic. They were cooked but limp. Yes, I said limp. We should've complained but don't like to do... More

Stopped in on the way across the state for a late lunch. Absolutely amazing. The food was stunning, and the service was excellent, polite, and kept the group extremely happy.

We were returning from the Charleston Tea plantation and were looing for a late lunch venue. We came across Gilligan's and decided to stop in. This is a great little restaurant on Johns Island. The Boom Boom Shrimp were great as was the fresh Spinach Salad with seared Scallops. Oh... and the Bloody Mary. With a stuffed shrimp wrapped in... More

Monday I took an out-of-town relative to Gilligan's on Johns Island, where I had not been in awhile. The food was great and the servers were very attentive. Very enjoyable lunch.

I've been coming here for many years and this visit was the worst ever. Margarita made with fruit juice because the bartender was nowhere to be found. Ordered all you can eat oysters but where the hell are the towels??? They said someone took them all to be cleaned?! How do eat steamed oysters without towels? And the hush puppies... More

Gilligan's is a good place to get fresh seafood. The crab legs are a good portion and fresh the oysters have just the right amount of coating as the flounder and shrimp. The She crab soup was good and a cup is so large it looks like a bowl.

This restaurant used to be our "go to" place when wanting fresh seafood on our way home. The last 2 times we have been there the service made us want to leave. Over 10 minutes before someone came to the table. The without taking a drink order they asked what we wanted for dinner. No mention of specials. The most... More
