    We were visiting my daughter at Clemson and wanted to take her out for a special meal. Sullivan's did not disappoint! Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The food was outstanding. The service was terrific! Very nice atmosphere. We are from the DC area and have many excellent dining choices - Sullivan's is one of the best we've been to. We will be back again and again!

    Sullivan's is an historic building built in the late 1800's first as a saloon and later transformed into a hardware store. Atmosphere is charming. The menu had great variety. The sweet potato chips with blue cheese and calamari were good but the fish was strong in taste and my steak was lacking in flavor. And, the food was very expensive.

    Our party of 4 enjoyed a weeknight dinner in celebration of my brother's 60th birthday. We used the corkage policy and had a nice bottle of Sangiovese from Frank Family in CA. We tasted the excellent pork tenderloin appetizer. My brother had the trigger fish special and said it was delicious. My husband and I had the Tenderloin filet served with veggies and mashed potatoes accompanied by a magnificent sauce. My SIL had a pasta dish that she said was fabulous. We took a birthday cake. The service was excellent from a waiter who had many tables yet managed to take good care of us.

    This was my first time at Sullivan's, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal to celebrate a special occasion (I was there with my wife for our anniversary). The wait staff was attentive, the food was very good, and the overall ambiance of the restaurant is what I would call "Charleston-chic." The restaurant is located in a wonderful old section of Anderson's downtown. Parking is on-street, so if you are trying to get there on time for a reservation, allow a few minutes to find a spot. Bottom line: my wife and I are looking forward to going back again for the next "special occasion"!

    Food quality was very good, but had some difficulty making a martini. surprising for an upscale restaurant. Worth mentioning is the drink was just legal, meaning not one drop extra. Extra olives is an unwise tactic to the educated. I don't mind paying for a good drink, and would prefer that then ordering 2. Waiter was exteremly pleasant, nice to see!

    Brought my parents in for their anniversary and had a nice evening. Food and service was great, but I ordered a very popular drink and they didn't carry the liquor to make it (Campari). So I decided to order a martini instead and they didn't have olives stuffed with blue cheese. Both of these are common in higher end bars, so I was disappointed. The martini and the Manhattan were both excellent though.

    Sullivan's has some of the best food in SC! Their lunch menu is large and varied but every dish is prepared with care and is delicious. Prices are also very reasonable (all under $10) and portions are generous. Dinner is more expensive, but deals are often posted on their Facebook page. Even so, the entrees are every bit worth the cost as they are all obviously professionally prepared and full of amazing flavor. Desserts are just as delicious, made in house and displayed in a case near the kitchen for curious diners. The ambiance is also quite nice, the restaurant is clean and lovely and modern with a twist of old charm and you can see into the kitchen. Service is also fantastic; polite, professional, friendly, fast, and thorough.

    The food was great though the menu did not offer a lot of choices. I had a salmon (don't recall the sauce that was on it) but it was pretty good. My entree came with a salad and it was $32.95. My husband had tuna and it came something called "lump crab sticky rice" and it was delicious. I loved it and hated that it was on his plate and not mine. His meal was $26.95. They are a little pricey, in my opinion. Overall, it was a great experience and I recommend that everyone try it out.

    Six of us spent a lovely evening at Sullivan's and from the very beginning of the evening until the very end everything was delightful. Our server, whose name I have unfortunately forgotten recited the specials for us twice and was extremely patient and considerate with our group. We tend to be a bit chatty, ask a lot of questions and hardly ever order from the menu without asking for special considerations (salad with dressing on the side, packed to go), and my trigger fish special was absolutely perfect. We chose several menu items as well as the specials and everyone in our party loved their food. We shared several desserts and each one was yummy. We will definitely be going back again soon.

    Sullivan's really delivers for those individuals seeking great atmosphere mixed with fine dining. The food is prepared fresh and the quality was excellent. Some dining experiences leave you wondering whether a return visit will ever happen. Sullivan's leaves you wondering how soon you can return. This restaurant is a must for couples and groups looking for a great night out on the town.

    This was a great place for Valentin'es day! Our table was on the second floor against the rail with a perfect view of all the bustle down below. The venue was elegant. The food was incredibly delicious and cooked to perfection. The service was good; the staff know the menu inside and out. The only problem was the noise. It did get very loud during the busiest part of the night. Other than that, it was great. Sullivan's Metropolitan Grill is a great local place to celebrate special occasions all year round.
