We went for a drink and could hardly wait to finish our drinks and get out of there. We felt very uncomfortable. But, now we know,so we won't go back.

Matt was our bartender. He was super fun, great jukebox. Would only suggest that they invest in mlb pkg so visitors can watch out of market games. Will definitely when we are back in town. Highly recommend!

Great local hang out. Very cheap beers too. Went on a Monday and they had $1 domestics. Not sure what specials they have any other day. Friendly bartender. Some TVs around the bar as well. Always a stop for us when visiting Topsail.

Gilligans has been a favorite of mine for many. years. They frequently have quality local bands and a dance floor that accommodates many people. The alcohol is reasonably priced and the staff is friendly.

This is definitely where the locals hang out (they were very friendly too and liked to talk). They only have about 5 beers on tap (like bud and bud light). If you like trying craft beers and micro brew beers you won't find it here....More
