    I was there with 4 others, being from Florida, we asked our conceirge at the Hotel for a recommendation for dinner, and he suggested Sullivans. We were their for our Grandson's Graduation, the food was excellent as well as the service. The restaurant was very busy, however the waitress and staff were very attentive and very professional. If we are ever back in Wilmington that would be our choice of restaurants, thank you,

    From soup (no seafood in bisque), to salad (boring 5 year old creation) to a new fish entree that was bland, with canned mandarins... One word. Disappointing.

    We really enjoyed the service attentiveness. The food was excellent and the delivery of the various courses was timed perfectly, not rushed nor delayed, a great rhythm for a nice romantic evening. The wine list was truly extensive but not overwhelming or too pricy. We enjoyed a very nice Merlot. Ambience was a nice setting with reasonably muted background chatter but comfortably isolated. I highly recommend.

    I took my wife and our newborn baby to Sullivan's to celebrate her first mothers day. There was a very reasonably priced brunch fixed price menu that included 3 courses. It had several choices and everything was delicious. The pace was nice and the service was excellent. I look forward to going back next year.

    This is the second time we have eaten at Sullivan's in Wilmington. Never again. Each time our steaks were filled with gristle and fat. The flavor was excellent but the cut of meat was terrible. When I pay 40+ dollars for a steak I expect to be able to eat it.

    Recent dinner for two was mixed. My wife had a Salad (mediocre) and an excellent Filet Mignon. I had an excellent Tuna appetizer and mediocre Rib Eye Steak (very fatty and Grizzly). I was disappointed with the Steak and had better at Outback at almost half the price. The total bill with a glass of wine and two sides (creamed spinach and mashed potato- very good) was $123.

    We love Sullivan's. The food is always outstanding and the service is as well. When we went this time, we were celebrating out 35th wedding anniversary and they included a free slice of cheesecake for us! Our waitress was also kind enough to send us a card after out visit telling us it was a pleasure to serve us on our anniversary and thanking us for spending it with them. One of our favorite side dishes at Sullivan's is the creamed corn...it is unbelievable.

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    Sullivans was a regular stop for me in the last few years. Approximately a year ago, I went and was less than impressed. Something just seemed to be off from the regular impeccable service and food I expect from a restaurant in the price point of Sullivans. So I took a break. Then I went back about 6 months ago figuring maybe it was an off night. It wasn't. Same thing. While the food was very good, the service was still lacking. Finally, after having received some gift cards from the boss, decided to give it another try. Well, they say the third time is the charm, and by charm I mean last time. If I am dropping that kind of money on dinner, I expect service to match the prices and it didn't.

    Looking for a good American steakhouse? This is it. Consistent quality food Nd service, we can rely on Sullivan's to deliver a great steak time after time. Tasty side dishes enhance the experience and round out the meal. While the dining room is large, the noise ambience is a bit high for comfortable conversation. Enjoy!

    The food at Sullivan's is always excellent but you'll pay for it. If you can avoid having a drink with your meal you'll save $$$ as the cocktails are relatively more expensive than the meals.

    Our experience at Sullivan's Steakhouse was very good. I ordered the braised beef ravioli, with a bbq sauce, a bit different, I must say. When it came out, and I found the sauce a bit spicy, the manager came over and asked what type of sauce I would like. I asked about a brown sauce. When it came back out, it was very good.

    We were sitting right up against the kitchen, and it was L-O-U-D. So loud, that the three of us in our party had a hard time hearing one another. I ordered salmon (which I've done in the past and always enjoyed), but this time it was bland and tasteless. Very disappointing. The salad was very bitter and the dressing just so-so. This is my fourth visit to Sullivan's and definitely not the usual experience. Not sure I'll be returning anytime soon.
