We had a great experience at Gilly's. Our party had some of the best service I have ever had. The food was great as well. Before going some of the reviews made us skeptical however our experience proved otherwise.

We went with our family, two adults and two kids under 5. This is not the kind of place for kids. We went midday and it was still pretty loud with a bar full of drinkers. and worst of all, the food is microwaved for sure.

This place looked like a nice restaurant to stop into for lunch, we ordered a bloody Mary on special for 3$ it was not very good, there wasn't even alcohol. Then we ordered a 5$ appetizer of cheese curds, we pretty much were eating fried bread because they didn't have any cheese besides maybe two curds. Then we ordered lunch and got a BLT and the double burger lunch special.... The BLT was the worst I've ever had, the Bacon was microwaved the bread was cold. The burger was just two plain patties between bread... Needless to say, this restaurant wasn't worth our money.

Food is priced right. I have had the Burger, Steak Sandw. & Fish Fry. The Burger is as good as any in the Downtown area and good bear battered fries. The Steak Sanwich with Grilled onions was good and on speical at $6 with fries. The Fish Fry is good for the price $6.95 with cole slaw and choice of fries or mashed. I would stick to the fries if you want the mashed ask for Gravey on the side. It is a white milk gravey with little flavor other than Milk and flour. This is a large Bar and accomidate a large group looking to fill-up at a $6-$8 per person. Not a dinning experence.

We just stopped into this place as we walked the strip and were greatest by the owners who were working the bar not just standing around. Had a great conversation along with a different drink special every day. We ended up stopping in every day for the week just to chat and cool off. Ask about the story about the building. A must stop for a relaxing place to cool your thirst.
