The host of our B&B mentioned several restaurants in Sechelt, but endth hed with "If you don't mind a bit of character, try Gilligan's Pub downtown. Great food and reasonably priced."
So, after spending most of the afternoon on the nearby beach, my wife and I decided to give Gilligan's a try, and weren't disappointed. You walk in, and I admit, the pub is dark and seedy looking. A big wall of tv's broadcasting horse races and keno results to the older clientel indicates the style of the pub.
We sat down and were quickly greeted by the friendly waitress, who took our order and quickly brought our drinks.
Our food came out fresh and hot. My wife ordered the Torpedo Prawns and I had the Gilligan burger. Both were quite plentiful and tasty.
So, even though the atmosphere might not be to some people's liking, the food and service make Gilligan's Pub worth going for.

We dropped in here due to being hungry and hearing good things. Server was friendly. Dessert was gratis due to it being St. Patrick's Day. Food was less than average and pricey for a pub. Probably two dollars or more higher than than it should have been. Strange acoustics in the place. You can hear every conversation everywhere in the place. No sound buffers. Depends on what you like I guess. I had the calamari and it was a three out of ten. My friend had the Mrs. Howell chicken burger with fries. Nothing to write home about. Again, less than average.

Hard for the owners to correct the atmosphere but definitely could pick the food up a notch. Servers were excellent though. Friendly. Attentive and energetic.

We will come back again but will probably order something else from the menu.

We recently moved to the Sunshine Coast and have decided to try all the local pubs, as we enjoy pub settings and food. Gilligan's Pub will not be getting a second visit from us. When we walked in, we were immediately taken aback by the atmosphere (so to speak) and decor -- formica laminate, anyone. Also, this is the place to spend your money gambling on the many, many lottery and betting sites. Everything we ate was sub-par, especially the fish (no taste buds necessary here) and chips. We certainly felt out-of-place as their clientele that night was dominated by the over 65 crowd, and we're 56. They had better up their game because their retired (literally) crowd can't spend a lot of money and won't be around for the long term.

Wine was fermented. Chicken wings were tiny and there was more sauce than meat. The ginger ale was ok though. Of course, I could've had an O'keefe'sExtra Old stock!

The food is the usual pub food but the surroundings are
totally uninspiring. Friendly staff
