    Sullivans Steakhouse is always at the top of my list for entertaining out of town guest. Service is key so everyone is comfortable and can enjoy the meal, drinks, and they make sure you never have to ask for refills. Their steaks are always spot on !

    Dinner for 4 on a relatively quiet Sunday night at the prior-reliable Sullivan's seemed like a low risk. In actuality, I left with the thought that there is room for improvement. It still has the right feel, but service and food could have been better.

    You do get what you pay for at Sullivan's. It is expensive, but the food lives up to price tag. Been here twice and every item we had on the menu has been top notch. The added bonus is that it is also a small enough and quiet enough place to have a conversation with whoever you are going to eat with, and you are not in some giant establishment that could make you feel like you get lost in the shuffle. The staff was also very friendly, helpful and attentive on both occasions. If you are willing to spend the money, Sullivan's will not disappoint you.

    the food was really good, and as picky as I am for meat, the steak (medium rare) satisfied all my cravings, the goat cheese and red wine topping for it was off the chain. Pumpkin/squash soup was incredible, with the toasted seeds of the same pumpkin as garnish which I really like. Overall great place, my only concern is that music was a little bit too loud for a relaxing dining experience, but I guess it all depends in what your occasion is.

    I never have had a bad experience with Sullivan's, it's always so delicious and friendly. The manager was great!! He was so nice and came over to speak with us for a bit about everything from sports, to travel, dinning and more! Being a social couple, we really enjoyed and admired that! Their drinks are so good, the service is fast! Best calamari ever! I ordered the roasted chicken, which I've ordered in the past, and it is so good! However this time around, it was a little dry and overlooked, but flavor was amazing. I'm definitely going to try the lamb on my next visit!! This place is one of my faves, you won't be disappointed!!

    I was hoping for a elegant, quiet, romantic dining experience - with excellent food. The food and the service were excellent. The only disappointment - for me - was the noise level. I felt the music was too loud - which made all the conversations louder than necessary. The total experience wasn't bad - just not what I wanted for a 38th wedding anniversary.

    The service was awful and the steak was dry. I would have expected a little more taste and moisture in my food and more knowledge about items on menu.If I was dinning at tgif I would say that things was fine, but with the amount of MONEY the I spent here things should have been 100 percent better.Cost plus service plus knowledge. I would never suggests this restaurant to friends.

    Once again Sullivan's hits the mark! The service was outstanding, even to the point of remembering a dish we had previously that was no longer on the menu. We asked the waiter if it was possible to provide the dish, and the chef agreed. The food was delicious, and the wine was top notch. I always have a great experience at Sullivan's and highly recommend it for either a business dinner or special occassion, and of course for a wonderful date night!

    A "good" steakhouse charging "great" steakhouse prices. Nowhere near the standard of national chains like Capital Grille and Mastro's. Sullivan's also doesn't have a compelling local history to make it an interesting dining experience. Extremely inattentive service the last 2 times I've brought clients to dine here. Cold steaks that weren't served to all guests simultaneously. If you must have steak, stick with a chain when in Charlotte.

    I've heard so much about Sullivan's. So, for my boyfriend's birthday, we decided to make reservations. We did not have to wait to be seated. The atmosphere was good. I was excited because I've heard so many positive comments about the food. We had the calamari and steak egg rolls for appetizers. They were good. The wedge lettuce was decent but I've had better. It was nothing special. We ordered the Salmon and Steak. The steak was overcook but seasoned well. The salmon was dry, could have used some kind of sauce. Since it was my boyfriend's birthday, we got a free dessert and a picture to take home; a very nice touch. My first visit wasn't what I was expecting. I felt like I was let down because of all the rave reviews I've heard about.

    Our first time finding this gem in the Southend District provided a phenomenal dining experience. They met and exceeded my every expectation - from the set up of a bottle of Presecco to the fresh sourdough loaf and whipped butter, to adding a single rose to our special date night, the food and service is exceptional. Our waiter, Richard, took every opportunity to make our night special. And the food - outstanding. The lobster bisque was chock full of lobster and shrimp and offered with a well prepared Cesear salad...then the trio filet Mignon topped with three distinct sauces shared with a large double sized lobster tail and grilled asparagus was prepared and cooked to perfection. This restaurant is now on our short list as a favorite.

    We usually like to go to Sullivans and will 4 or 5 times a year. However, this occasion we had a bad experience on a Sunday night. Not for sure what happened on this night if the staff forgot to show up or wanted to stay home. Onion rings were not good and very chewy. The mgr took this off the tab since they were so bad. All of our side items were not good at all. Mushrooms had butter adhered to the outside, baked potato was cold and mashed potatoes were not even edible. The only descent part of the meal was the steak and salad

    Sullivan's, while a steakhouse chain, operates with a personal touch attitude, has a very well trained and personable waitstaff, offers both the a la carte and prix fix menus, and delivers service that is, while expected, greatly appreciated. Highly recommend this location. Food was perfect, waitstaff and attention to detail superb.

The noise level, however, was distracting, and the servers were all running around constantly--the environment was very frenetic. It's a great place if you don't mind the noise and constant activity.

    We have never been disappointed with Sullivan's. The service is excellent. This time the waitress was training a new person and we received better than excellent service. Food is always outstanding -- I don't know how they get a filet that tender and prepared just the way you ordered it. We each ordered the $39 special which includes appetizer, salad, and entrée. Great value! The only thing I could complain about is they did not put bacon bits on my lettuce wedge, but the blue cheese made up for it.

    I have always enjoyed Sullivan's in the past, the service and Happy Hour is normally pleasant. However, the last few times that I have dined there have not been great. We had a late dinner this time, we felt rushed and the food portions were small despite everything being a la carte. I was not impressed with the steak or lobster.

    My wife and I went to Sullivan's to celebrate our 14 year wedding anniversary. When searching for the perfect location for a memorable dinner we found Sullivan's and thought why not! I immediately booked dinner reservations and told them exactly what I wanted on the table before we arrived and it was just the way I requested it! We were taken away by the amazing ambiance and romantic setting of the restaurant. Their food was some of the best food that we have ever had! We have lived in Europe and traveled all over the world so we are not strangers to great cuisine. I highly recommend this restaurant to any couple that wants to have the perfect romantic experience while indulging in an outstanding meal. Two thumbs up!!!!
