Waited for 45 minutes for biscuits and gravy and an omelette with hash browns. Biscuits were hard and hash brown were soft. Only got one biscuit because they had run out. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Waited for exactly 1 hour for eggs and hash browns. When I ask how much longer I was informed they had it on the grill. Will not be going back.

Gilligan's has a new owner and things have improved. Eating breakfast is great outside due to the lake view and the morning sun behind the building. Pets are welcomed if on a leash. They have added more boat slips so water access is much improved....More

Gilligan's has one of the best cries of the lake anywhere. It's complicated to park unless you walk down steep stairs. Seasonally the lakeside patio is awesome, but the dining room has large windows. Breakfast is okay, but not overpriced. Not a bad choice.

Wife and I are hot springs natives and didn't even realize there was a restaurant here. Best lake view in hot springs- the menu and service are ultra basic- you will have a burger and beer- and the prices and view are a steal

We took visiting family for breakfast because of the location. Big mistake! Yes, the view is nice but that is the only good thing about this restaurant. After waiting 30 min for our meals & watching the tables that arrived after us receive theirs, I...More
