We actually ate here twice during our recent trip to Charleston. After spending way too much money on touristy dining in Charleston, Gilligan's prices were refreshing. Our meal was reasonably priced for lunch. We ordered popcorn shrimp. Being from Missouri, we aren't very picky about seafood, but we thought this was as good as the overpriced food we ate in downtown Charleston. I've also ordered the crab cake sandwich before and enjoyed that. The kids ordered non-seafood items and enjoyed their food. It wasn't very crowded and the service was excellent. We sat in the back. I would have enjoyed sitting outside if it hadn't been so hot. The scenery is beautiful as the back overlooks a lake.

Our food was awful!! My crab was way too salty and the shrimp had no flavor. The best part was the undercooked French fries.. Too over priced for the food. Skip this place for sure.. Red lobster is high end compared to here

Went here to celebrate my moms birthday by eating crab legs. They were delicious, and We all loved the hush puppies.

More of a dressy casual attire, but food is excellent and service was very attentive. Took really good care of us especially considering there were at least 30 people.

This place used to be much better. The food isn't bad, but it wasn't up to previous experiences. For the price I'd go someplace else.
