We went there today. It was closed. They had removed all of the merchandise and turned out the lights.

“This place is going to kill someone”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

We just got back from eating here, and my wife and I both got sick. They served her a trout that was rotten. I'm not kidding, the fish was rotted. We had eaten here last year, and the place was packed, the food was good. We got in the mood for seafood tonite, decided to go over there, and there were only a few cars in the parking lot. Now I see why. Honestly, someone had better close this place before they kill someone.

“Surprisingly good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

I just read that Gilligan's in Lexington is a SC Aquarium Sustainable Seafood Restaurant so my husband and I had to try it out. I read the Trip Advisor reviews and almost didn't go. Most of the reviews were terrible. I'm glad we went.

We were there for lunch on Sunday. We had the she crab soup which was very good. My husband had the clams and they were small and sweet - the way they should be. My grilled shrimp were done just right. A decent wine list and some creative cocktails added to the menu.

I have 2 suggestions for Gilligans - don't serve the entrees until the salad course is completed and don't serve canned, overcooked green beans. Next time I will ask which sides are fresh before I order. We will go back. There aren't any really good restaurants in Lexington so we are glad we discovered this one. We will be back to Gilligan's.
