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

Not enough servers, menus, cooks. After ordering and waiting an hour, we were told our food was up next to be cooked. Yes, one table at a time. We came by boat and after waiting so long, we went and got our boat snacks for...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

First off, in any business things happen. I get that. How a business responds is the difference between five stars and one star. So, the story begins. We came for breakfast one Sunday; around 12:30. The website says they serve b'fast till 2PM. The menu...More

Great location view wise, and the burgers tasted just like they had been made in your backyard. This location has seen some neglect in the past but is on its way to being a great local spot for a burger and a beer on the...More
