    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

    We were disappointed. We heard it was such a great restaurant but we could have the same quality of food for less than 1/2 the price. My wife's salad was drenched in dressing and they served her steak with the wrong sauce.

    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.

    I took my husband to Sullivan's for his birthday. We had a great table, the food was outstanding and the service was just the right amount of attention. 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.

The portions are huge!! And the staff at Sullivan's does a great job from the moment you walk in the door!! I had a great 40th birthday with my brother (who flew down from Connecticut!) and my good friend. I will definitely be back!! Thanks!!

    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!!!!

    This was a birthday dinner for my lady. We were greeted with smiles which made us feel very comfortable. Out waiter, Will, was the greatest. He was there when we needed him, his recommendations were spot on and he was fun and extremely helpful. The food was outstanding. We had the boned in filet and it was a real treat. They provided us without charge a 25 year old scotch as a birthday treat. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours and enjoyed every minute of our dinning experience. On our favorite list and highly recommend. Easy to get to and parking was abundant. Sullivan's has a sophisticated charm with a comfortable feeling. Great combination.

    My family loves Sullivans. You always have the best food. But on this last visit we were disappointed that there was no spinach salad with the bacon dressing. Also, my shrimp cocktail was not to good because the shrimp were rubbery and tasteless. I brought this to the attention of the server and he said he was sorry to hear it but did nothing about it. All this is unusual for Sullivans. Our previous visits were always a great dining experience.

    Friday night dinner reservation for two. Valet parking. Greeted, seated promptly and then ignored. Waitress greeted us briefly, took drink order. Waited 15 minutes for drinks. Water poured the wait again. Four courses finally ordered with first being lobster bisque. Hot bread not delivered until asked for twice. Ironically "two" plates of hot bread delivered just as bisque was finished. Then a rushed pace and very poor pacing of courses. Second and third courses delivered on top of each other with no mercy. Plates from finished first course not cleared even after second course placed. Entire experience felt hurried and indifferent. Food quality (filet & half lobster) only average in preparation, quality and presentation.

    Sullivan's is a classic American steakhouse. The ambience is typical -- and good. Live jazz on Friday and Saturday nights add to the mix. The main product, steaks are excellent as are the usual sides. Sullivan's , unlike Del Frisco's or Mortens tends to deliver normal size rather than huge portions both in the steaks and sides. This reflects itself in the price which is moderately less than those other two. Mid range wine list is certainly decent , but will not blow anyone away. Definitely recommended.
