We eat here every year. Haven't found anything on the menu that we didn't like. The place is always busy.

My first time to Gilligan's, they had a two man band playing outside where the customers eat. The band was good. I had the salad with chicken tenders. I liked it and the portions where huge. I had to pick through the cherry tomatoes because they had so many dumped in the salad. The one annoying item was the table... More

The outdoor patio and bar are a great place to hang out. Ordered a rib eye steak it was ok ! Not the best steak I've had but it was OK. The summer shandy was cold and the atmosphere was great. I suggest maybe a burger or wings next time!

Came in for their Wednesday wing night special. The wings were really good. They have so many sauces to choose from. I ordered the Krakatoan sauce, the waitress told me it was very hot. I would say it is a medium hot. But it was still excellent. The bar and ambiance is a little tacky... but I am told it... More

We recently had burgers and taco salad at Gilligans. This is a favorite place to visit when we are in the area. They have outdoor seating and Tiki Bar but we were inside because of weather.

I ate here a couple days ago, for the first time this season. We keep our camper at a resort in Chetek, and eat out a lot when in town. Gilligan's is one of our usual places, and they always have great homemade soups- a different one nightly- with chicken noodle being served the night I was there. It was... More

Gilligans is always busy with locals and visiting resort attenders. They have a fun menu based on the characters from Gilligan's island as well as nightly specials. WInters you'll find Packers games on all the TV's, summers is great fun to drive up the pontoon to the Tiki Bar, and eat outside! They often have live music, Adult Prom, and... More

After 11pm don't expect to hear what the person right next to you is saying, the music is too loud. And the owner refused to change it, he claimed the "younger crowd" liked it that way. We'll be going somewhere else next time where we can actually hear each other. I don't see any reason to go to a place... More

We have been to Gilligan's several times over the past few years. During that time they have updated the interior and added very nice outdoor space in the Tiki Bar. The food is pretty good there. Service can be slow, but they are typically quite busy in the summer. If you are not in a hurry, it's worth visit. We... More

Stopped with a group of friends, had a great meal. The service was great and the bartender was very nice. She kept us laughing and made sure we were good on drinks. The tiki area was good as well. Had a fun time once again, thanks!
