Located a few blocks from the Tampa Bay Times Forum and next to Shalimar Indian Restaurant, Gilligan's is the kind of place where TV's goofy first mate would duck out from the Skipper. It's a fun and friendly hangout, tucked away in a part of downtown Tampa that isn't too close to the action, except on game nights when the place becomes a massive blue and silver blur. Downtown workers lunch there by day, and a mix of sports enthusiasts and non-trendy people all ages hang out evenings and weekends. Despite Gilligan's being a drinking establishment, order and civility are maintained, so it's a safe place to take children before the hockey game.
