I loved my recent visit to Gilligan’s! Get the hush puppies and fried oysters. I also like the grilled scallops. The red wine is always very good along with the service!

Our family has been going to Gilligan’s for over 20 years now. A visit to Charleston isn’t complete without a trip to get shrimp and oysters. Their low-country boil is really good too! No need to worry about the kiddies being bored either. It’s an...More

We love Gilligan's when we are in Seabrook. We ate there twice and we were only in the area 5 days. It is always so good. Best okra you ever put in your mouth.
