Not all my review made it so I deleted it, so here it all is: I was looking for Great Prime Rib in Harrisburg area, checking ratings and reviews, I was already at the Firehouse which had Great Prime Rib but like trying other places and this place had good reviews. I started with French Onion Soup that was absolutely... More

Great food, great service, great bar. Best place in the Harrisburg area. Steaks are delicious, seafood is always good and the pasta is just right.

The service was excellent and the lunch specials were a bargain. I tried the Sweet Baby Rays barbecue sandwich and cheeseburger macaroni soup. Both were outstanding.

Met a friend for lunch and we both were surprised with how huge the entree salads were. we were seated and served quickly with ample time to finsh a cup of delicious soup before the salads came out. Wait staff was careful to be attentive with out constantly interrupting our conversation.

Had various meals at both locations - the last visit was an office retirement lunch - many varied menu items - well prepared and made with individual needs in mind when presented to the wait staff - items are well priced and portions are generous enough to expect "doggie bags" -

We sat in a corner booth and although the restaurant was packed, it was quiet and relaxing. Two people in our party enjoyed the prime rib dinner, one had a chicken special and the other had a pasta dish. The service was great and we will be back!

This restaurant has failed the Pennsylvania Dept. of Agriculture Inspections on numerous occasions -- most recently failed this January. It is a shame, because they have a great menu. We used to go there a lot until I saw a server on several occasions making a patron salad with his/her hands. They need someone in there that will follow (and... More

Your comments indicating that our establishment "failed" our health inspection is erroneous. If an establishment is found to have imminent health hazards or critical violations, the establishment will be closed pending correction of the violations and and a re inspection by the Department of Health. We take the safety and sanitary preparation of food very serious. Our establishment has been... More

Went there on a Thursday night for dinner and drinks. Sat in the smaller bar/pool table area. They were busy. Food was good but the service wasn't.

I have to say that I have been pleasantly surprised each time I have gone to Gilligan's mainly because the food has been much better than anticipated. Their wings are really good but on this last visit I wanted something lighter so I opted for the mussels. Our server recommended that I try the spicy version of them so I... More
