Gilligan's Waterfront Restaurant and Bar
Excellent seafood cuisine with some of the best outdoor dining available. The restaurant sits on over nintey feet of water frontage giving diners a relaxing experience. Open Teusday through Sunday for lunch and dinner.
I have been going to this restaurant for ten years. On Sunday of labor day weekend four of us had lunch which was very enjoyable untill several hours later when one of our pary of four discovered his cell was missing.I called his number and he had left at the restaurant..I asked if they would mail it to his home address, which they would do but wanted a credit card nuber so he could pay for the postage..Business must be bad .Why would you treat a customer this way.On top of this it took them a week to send it back, their excuse was that they were to busy.I don't think I will be back!
Great location, in the heart of Historical Lewes. The outside of the resautrant fits with the shore scene as you feel as though you are walking onto a boat. The inside is quite tight, but the view to the canal makes up for the small atmosphere.
Waiters aren't as friendly and the food is good, but average and over priced.
Ok, except for the hostess allowing a small backup at the front door upon arrival, all was great. The view of the marina along the canal, and truly exceptional food. From the sorba noodle salad to the crab cake entree (this is no pretender, it is gourmet, and satisfying). My wife had salmon, which was very nice also. Chris provided memorable service for us.
The best, the biggest, the most wonderful crab cakes in all of the Eastern Shore, including Baltimore, and we tried them all! The decor is charming, staff is great, and the town of Lewes is good for a day if you like history or shopping.
As life-long Lewes residents, we've seen restaurants come and go. We've had the opportunity to sample them all. Gilligan's is one of only two that we patronize on a regular basis.
The atmosphere is outstanding. You can dine indoors or outdoors, all with canal-side dining.
The wait staff has always been top shelf . . . .
The food is great, always . . . . Carla's crab cakes could probably go down in the record book for size, with flavor to match. Where else can you find a restaurant where you typically get a doggy bag for crab cakes?
Andrew and the bar . . . . best around. Andrew knows his customers and it shows.
