Always a great experience. Customer service is second to none. Crab legs were good but this time it was hard to get meat out of shell. Not sure what was wrong.

Service was good. Food was pretty good. Crab legs over cooked. Prime rib was good. Was hoping fish was on the line. I would like to thank the manager for going out his way to find me to give me my credit card that I left in the dining room. The dinning experience was much better in the past.

The food was very subpar. Not one thing on the menu did I enjoy. The crab legs were about the only thing tolerable and even they weren't great. Crab is my favorite food so not sure how u can mess that up. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and attentive but the food was certainly not worth the $100 I spent. Will not be returning and definitely regretting the amount of money we spent there.

I love the place, all the people who work there, but after 1 year going there, I got tired of the same food, on the brunch only ONCE it was some smoked salmon, not enough variety. the same during the week. so we are going less .

We went to Gigi's from online reviews under the impression that the breakfast buffet was something special. It was not. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, gravy, biscuits, toast, the usual. Only scrambled eggs with no onions or anything else. No cheese. Waitress was busier wiping tables than making sure guests were happy. Typical hotel fare.

There is a menu based on the day of the week, so I would suggest you take a look before going. The fried chicken was very good. Good value for the money. I will be back!

Great place, great selection of fresh food, all at a great price. And also very convenient as our church is using the Conference Hall for Sunday Services. We’ll be back.

First time I’ve ever been here and the seafood buffet was great! Big selection and the service was great too. They kept picking up the shells and plates as fast as we put them down. Drinks stayed filled and never asked for anything.
To my surprise even the deserts were amazing. I had three pieces of pie and cheesecake.

Good place to dine for crab leg/seafood lovers! They even had low country boil on Saturday, as well as a lobster ravioli station (where the chef adds sauteed jumbo shrimp at your request).

Gigi's is a good buffet. It has some good food (I especially like their bread pudding). The service is friendly and attentive. The noise level can raise a little when it's crowded, but that's the same anywhere. The ambience is nice, and I never feel rushed here. My only negative really is that some of the food, while good, tastes like it's obviously from a frozen source. That said, my friend and I will be back! We like this buffet a lot.

We had a great time! Well worth the money! Food was good and presented in a classy manner. Service was out of this world! They had 2 events going on and everything still ran so smoothly. Food was kept full at the bars and our drinks were never empty. Will definitely go back when we are in the area.

Gigi's was a great place to eat. the seafood buffet was amazing. family really enjoyed it. Service was good. Server was good, just a little anxious to take plates off the table before we were done. He got much better after a few times of telling him we were not done yet. Definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Not at this time. You have always been a place that I recommended. The food was so so. The price RIDICULOUS for the food. I don't mind paying well for good food and good service. The seat we were put in was not conducive to 5 adults. Never put a group of adults at a table that they have to ask each to get up or wait until someone is done. Very uncomfortable.

Your buffet IS NOT IN ANY WAY HANDIAPPED ASSEABLE!!!!!NOT ONE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES ASK IF THEY COULD HELP. Two of you employees blocked my path and i had to go around. I could not see what food was on your buffet nor could i reach anything. With Mrs Possin in a wheel chair YOU should be more mindful of the needs of someone without mobility
The food was not.up to.gigis standards.

The new management team appears to be bringing things back to life. The food quality and taste has returned to what I'm accustomed to and known for Gi Gi's to be. Very knowledgeable.

The 1st time we went and had a very enjoyable evening. The crab legs were good size and tasted very good. The prime rib was bland and vey chewy. We really only went for the crab so we were not too disappointed.
The 2nd time we went to GiGi's was May 10. The 1st plate of crab were small but very sweet so we enjoyed them. The 2nd plate of crab were mushy, water logged and tasted like they were boiled in swamp water. Not good! Since we were paying so much for all you can eat crab we decided to get one more small plate (2 clusters). They were very small, not much meat in them, more work than it was worth. We left disappointed and said we not ever come back again. The waiter was very attentive and we really enjoyed his service but he was not in charge of the kitchen. Thank you for allowing us to state our position.

P.S. My son and his wife went to GiGi's May 10 as well. They went about an hour later that night and they found the crab was the same as us. They don't plan on returning as well.

Probably what $42 will buy for a seafood buffet. Fried shrimp and oysters were previously frozen. Beef was was just OK. However, there was plenty of crab legs which saved the day. Bottom line, I would rather spend more and get fresh seafood.
