You find yourself wandering into Siesta Key Village after an epic day on the #1 Beach in the USA. Sandy feet and salty skin, searching for shade and refreshment. You wander right into Gilligan’s Island Bar & Grill and you couldn’t have picked a better spot.
Founded in 2001, we have plenty of experience with making sure both locals and visitors are having the time of their lives.
We pride ourselves on offering the best quality of foods, cocktails, service, atmosphere and local entertainment on the Key. Come on in and check us out for yourselves.
When you arrive you are presented with several options on where to spend your time at Gilligan’s. Take your time, look around a bit.
From the street you couldn’t help but notice our new Tiki Bar and Thatched Tiki Roof. This is easily the biggest Tiki Bar in the Sarasota area and maybe Florida and has quickly become Siesta Key’s favorite go to location for wasting the day away in Paradise.
But don’t stop there. Stroll inside and for most of the day you will be treated to some of Siesta Key’s best live bands that play on our front deck area daily from 6-10pm and weekends from 2-10pm.
Take your picture in front of our VW Bus that we parked in front of our Kitchen. All our delicious foods are served hot right out the side window of this van.
A bit further and you find yourself in the Gilligan’s Main Bar area which exudes a certain Old Florida Charm complete with surfboards, A/C, numerous flat screen T.V’s, great service and almost always a great collection of salty locals enjoying a well deserved break in the day.
With your tropical libation in hand, head outside to our Back Beach Patio and enjoy some relaxation under the palm trees. On cool nights we have a fire pit going to keep with the feel of paradise.
This area is one of Siesta Keys best kept secrets. Have the hostess seat you on the Voodoo Deck, out in the sunshine or my absolute favorite spot on the Lelu deck tucked back in under the Palm Trees and Hibiscus and enjoy your meal Florida style.
At night the flickering Tiki Torches and cool breeze off the Gulf are exactly what you have been looking for.
Girls trip 2022 would not have been complete without going to Gilligan’s Bar. Our bartender was awesome, friendly, courteous, attentive, and just an all around great bartender.
Gotta stop at Gilligans
We love Gilligans! Great summer bar in Florida. Casual, laid back and great bar drinks. Super fun place to hang and people watch
Great fun atmosphere
Very fun bar with healthy portions of food. The burgers are great and tasty chicken sandwich but the real reason to go is the atmosphere!
First visit for dinner
Stopped here on Friday night for grand finale to spring break with kids/grandkids. Thirty minute wait at 645 pm went quickly and seated when called to table opening. Menus brought to table with waters and drink orders taken. I opted for the market fish (triple tail) sandwich with beans & rice for the side. It was a great choice and flavor was absolutely delicious. I’d recommend this entree and restaurant if you’re in the area.
Return visit guaranteed
Special spot, wonderfully creative island atmosphere, and the fish “fingers” and tacos were excellent.
We stayed real close to town, and this was a favorite place to walk in and grab a lunch.
Bit of an early riser? Love your morning coffee? Then you don’t want to miss an opportunity to visit Mojo Risin’ Coffee located right next to Gilligan’s. Mojo Risin’ Coffee opens at 7am offering the best coffee around with a wide selection of craft roasted beans, freshly brewed coffee, espresso based drinks and fresh fruit smoothies. Want a light breakfast? Try an ACAI SMOOTHIE BOWL. A perfect treat for a hot Florida Beach day. Wander outside and sit on the back patio and watch the Parrots play in the palm trees and enjoy the quiet of a beautiful Florida morning. On a perfect day you can hear the wind in trees, the waves on the beach and the light reggae playing in the background while you relax. Not a bad way to start the day!
The short story here is to have the hostess seat you and let one of our team take great care of you. The drinks, food, service, atmosphere and entertainment are unbeatable here on Siesta Key.
