Awesome low-class partying atmosphere, cheap bear, and fun young people. Nothing fancy about this place, definitely relaxed and laid back atmosphere location. Bar does get packed. They have pitchers of beers. Midget nights are Tuesday nights.

I can appreciate the desire to put on a party and make a few bucks in the process, but when in the process you create a booming noise disturbance that resonates for a mile in all directions until two or three AM you become a nuisance and deserve a bad review. Simply put, this is rude, discourteous and obnoxious behavior. Shame on you! Shame on the city of Scottsdale for allowing this to happen. Three nights in a row? Come on!

I generally don't like the bars in Scottsdale, but this is one of the few ones I go to. It's always a fun time!

Gilligin's is like no other bar I have been too. If you don't like crude language or sexual innuendoes this place is not for you. From the spinning drink wheel, to gold fish racing (where girls can flash to win) this place is a good time.

The drinks are well poured and prices very reasonable.

Tip: Don't shoot the midget with the squirt gun, she doesn't find it funny!

We have been to Giligin's Sand Bar three times in the past year. The first time I ordered the Caesar salad with Mahi filet. It was great!!!

The second and third times we were there the service and food was not good. The fish was very strong tasting, the waitresses were not especially friendly (kind of rude) and they were out of shrimp (at 4:30 p.m). We have decided we would not go there again.
