Diner Reviews
  • "The Brunch Buffet was great. I cannot wait to try a lunch buffet."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Great food - Great service. But don't come for hotel...it is old and worn out! Service outstanding...food aplenty. Crab legs and Prime rib worth the trip. I would eat there any time. I wish it was in a nicer place...or had a view or something...it is a shame to waste such a great restaurant in such a crappy place."

  • "Girlfriend and I enjoyed Father's Day brunch. The menu was great! Liked the make your own waffle grills. I didn't have any, but looked like a lot of people were using it. Wonderful time. I'm also glad these surveys are being read. Thank you again."

  • "I took my husband and my dad out for the Father's Day brunch and everything was perfect! There was plenty of food to choose from and it was all delicious. While we were there we realized that one of our favorite comics was coming to the Comedy Zone. We made reservations immediately to have a night out on the town."

  • "I was disappointed in the limited variety. The food was good but there were too many duplicated dishes which made it look like a lot of variety."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Our experience was good and we will go back. We were seated right away and the buffet had a broad selection of food. The crab legs and prime rib was very good. Their deviled crab was also good."

  • "It's been several years since I'd been to GiGi's and it was just and I remembered. The service was great and the food OUTSTANDING. I read a few negative reviews which made me think the quality had gone down. But no, you people must have caught GiGi's on an off night. This place is AWESOME. My advice to people who read these reviews is to go and try GiGi's for yourself then form your own opinion."

  • "Getting to expensive when a 20% gratuity is added, $ 190.00 for four people and three of them are under 115 lbs. That is my option when all a waitress has to do is fill drinks and empty crab bowls........."

  • "My girlfriend and daughter and I had the 3:00 reservation Easter Sunday brunch. I can't at this time recall the waitress, but however, I was with a Hispanic woman and daughter, sat by the pool window. Never the less, we enjoyed that day immensely. Dynamic waitress service. Even the Omelets guy. Hilarious! Next time I'll get an omelet. Kudos to the entire staff. I've attended the Comedy Zone shows also. Thank you very much."

  • "I planned a surprise Graduation Party for my Oldest Daughter and invited 17 guests. Also my friend came and she had all the table preps and the staff went above and beyond in assisting her to bring the items in and setting up. Our host was outstanding, removing soiled plates in a timely fashion and conversed with all the guest. The event was a homerun, touchdown game winner! We all thoroughly enjoyed the abundance of food and everyone lrft satisfied. Thank You! GiGi's and Open Table. Sincerely, Chandra"

  • "Service was not acceptable, food quality was less than par"
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Don't bother to make a reservation because their not going to bother to keep it. It's merely a form of anticipated head count for the restaurant."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "On the web no Xmas menu. On Facebook menu had crab legs. There were none. Roast beef was over well done and dry. Turkey gravy was more of a brown pepper gravy not traditional turkey gravy. Wife had chocolate cake and I had coconut. Both were not good. Very dense and like a refrigerator cake. I know it's Xmas but 20% added gratuity on a $30 buffet is a bit much. Mint I received with bill was old half size wet and and sticky. Looked like it was sucked and returned. Tables so tight together we couldn't hardly get out of our seats."

  • "Love this place every time I dine there. Both the food and the atmosphere are great."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "Our waitress was slow in greeting us and very forgetful when we asked for something. Twice we asked for some butter and finally had to get up and locate our waitress while the food got cold."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "The server was polite and helpful. The food was good, although not always as hot as I would like. There was plenty of food choices to choose from and the line moved in an orderly fashion. I wouldn't recommended it for familes with small children, as the cost is a bit high and seating area close together, but perfect for a couple or small group of adults. A good experience and we will probably be back next year."

  • "We have been going to GiGi's for Thanksgiving for many years. It has always made the day special for us. I look forward to GiG's every year."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Wide variety of flavorful food. We have visited both the Thanksgiving and Christmas buffet. Both offer everything you could ask for and really when one figures in time as well as money, it is a bargain at $28.95. Service was attentive to all needs."

  • "Family enjoyed letting someone else cook! Food was good. Wish omlette station was available. Deserts excellant."

  • "Not what I expected. charged my 75 pound 11 year old full price for buffet."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "My family loves Thanksgiving at GiGi's; however, they really outdid themselves this year. Food was the best I have ever had. Tasted homemade. Presentation was attractive and clean. Servers were friendly and upbeat with big smiles and Happy Thanksgivings. It was quiet and we were allowed to visit and enjoy our meal without being rushed to leave. I think in all areas it was a 5 star plus. My son in law loves it so much that he drove up from Melbourne, Florida to eat at GiGi's and then drove back to Melbourne to eat with his family. He wouldn't miss his Thanksgiving at GiGi's. All 3 of us loved the food and the people."

  • "Shrimp and crabs tasted old. Staff should have asked a screaming kid to hush or leave."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "you'll love it for the crab legs, shrimp, crawfish, clams, fish, and oysters. the prime rib; not so much. it was overcooked and sliced like a roast beef. I asked for a thicker cut and what I got was no more than a quarter inch thick. wife liked it because her cut was well done. i couldn't get a rare piece (or even medium rare). i didn't get much for the money. service was great."
