Great food. Seafood is the bomb. We went two times on our trip to Hershey. We went for guns n roses and this was a close second to the concert. Great service and atmosphere.

Our waitress was amazing! However, we ordered medium rare prime rib and both of ours was well done... We are not against going there again... Will just avoid the prime rib.

I didn't expect such good food and great service!! As I travel alone many times a year, and being female, they didn't pre judge me.

Great! We actually visited twice because the menu was so big and there were so many tasty items. The crab cakes - YUM! The spanakopita- YUM! The burgers/sandwiches/hoagies - huge and delicious! Definitely visit and bring a health appetite.

We had a great experience. I was traveling with my 90-year-old folks and the service was great and the food was terrific. We ended up having both lunch and dinner on the same day!

I had the haddock with shrimp and scallops and it was fantastic. As someone who usually only gets seafood near the shore this is the best in central Pa. My wife had the mixed greens salad and added chicken again fantastic. They must make their...onion rings fresh as we both agreed they were great Server Lizzie was extremely friendly and attentiveMore

Started off with the crab and spinach dip which was very good and served hot. Had the Rachel which was very good. Plenty of parking. Clean. Service a bit slow. Prices OK

I arrived for a simple take-out supper, but upon arrival there was an air of anxiety. Apparently, the computers had gone down and so, among other impacts, there was no way to take credit cards. The staff were doing their best, but it certainly was...unsetting to have a home-made receipt. The soup and salad were bagged and I returned to the hotel. No spoon! Alas, I improvised with the soup, but the French onion soup was only average as was the salad. Maybe the anxiety was in the kitchen as well.More

I ordered our meals for take out from the menu I looked up under Gilligan’s bar and grill, Eisenhower, Blvd. The prices on the menu were lower than what I was charged when the meals were picked up. I went to the reasturant the next...day and explained what had happened. The managers response was the trip advisors menu and they didn’t update the menu prices. I told her I looked up the menu under Gilligans bar and grill, Eisenhower blvd, and showed her my phone and the menu and the prices. She said there isn’t nothing they can do. I was shocked. I even left the server a nice tip and all she did was place the order and give me the bag. I’ll never go back to another Gilligans and I will spread my experience. I wonder how many other people that were scammed by this that never checked their bill. I know restaurants are hurting right now but when they treat their customers like this and rip them off, it’s unsat.More

Great food, great service, nice atmosphere, good prices...glad we found this gem! I am a vegetarian so I was really excited to see the portobello burger on the menu. My husband got a steak and the kids both found something off the children’s menu. We...would definitely return when in the area again!More
