  • "Really had a Great time celebrating our 45th Anniversary. Wait staff was fantastic, our dinners were awesome, done perfectly, will definitely tell all how great it was."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Food, drinks, and service at Sullivan's is excellent. You will not be disappointed. However, price can be a little steep if you are not expecting it. Great place to celebrate that special occasion in your life."

  • "I use to frequent Sullivans quite a bit prior to the Great Recession. I was definitely not disappointed knowing that this was a once a quarter date night. As always the food was delicious & the service was impeccable. I have always preferred Ruth's (downtown) ambience over Sullivans, but the food & service has always been best at Sullivans."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We went to Sullivan's for a nice, romantic dinner for our 6th anniversary. We were not disappointed. It was a little pricey, but everything came together to create a fantastic evening. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Every time we go here it never disappoints. Our daughter was heading out to college and we wanted to send her off with a great meal. Some bisque, shrimp cocktail and a few filet mignons later voila! Mission accomplished!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I have only been a few times because it is a bit on the expensive side but the food is always awesome! Definitely try the cheesesteak egg roll"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I took my good friend and our three 9 yr old daughters last night, and none of us had any idea of what to expect. Too often when taking children out to dinner, especially at a 'nice' restaurant, staff treat you as a burden...NOT AT SULLIVAN'S!!!! Garrett was awesome, the complimentary valet parking staff were super friendly...I honestly cannot rave enough about the ENTIRE staff! Oh, and the steaks...OMG..s.o good!! Like cutting butter! They even ended up giving us 2 complimentary desserts for our table, and I have NO idea why! This is an amazing experience, and I am SO glad I had the opportunity to share it with my favorite people!! Despite the cost (worth EVERY SINGLE penny), we will be making this an annual event for the five of us!!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I was out on business in the Indy area and chose Sullivan's based on other customer reviews. It did not disappoint! I ordered off of the $39 fixed price menu. The cheesesteak eggrolls are an absolute must! I could have made a meal off of those all night, unfortunately there were only 2 on the plate. The second option was the Caesar salad which was absolutely delicious! I special ordered my filet to be cooked medium plus and they nailed it! The white cheddar au gratin potatoes were the only item that was good but didn't stand out. I was nervous to try the horseradish mashed potatoes for fear they would be too spicy. The staff was pleasant and attentive. I never had an empty glass and bread was brought out immediately. Great experience!"

  • "My husband and I wanted a special place to take our adult children to dinner. We had a great table away from traffic which made it easy for conversation. Our waitress was eager to provide excellent service without being a bother. We all had a delightful time."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Selected Sullivan's for our 28th anniversary dinner. I've eaten at Sullivan's in Chicago many times. Overall, this was a good experience with great service. My filet was a little overcooked, but the staff made up for it with offers of complimentary wine or dessert. I would still go back since they seemed to truly care."

  • "Always a good place to go out to eat. I did not like the extra room attached to the bar. It was to bright."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Saturday evening, so it was rather crowded and busy. Service was very good, and food was OK. We thought the menu was good but rather pricey."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Frequently do lunch here, but it had been a short while since we had done dinner here. WOW! Forgot what we were missing. Everything was fantastic and exceed our expectations. Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! THANK YOU SULLIVANS!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Returned to celebrate wedding anniversary... Terrific time! Outstanding service from Evan..again, and as usual! Must try the horseradish mash potatoes and one of the soufflés! My wife loved the kale salad and lobster bisque! My favorite is the 8oz Filet."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Unfortunately, steaks weren't done as ordered. Very over done. Some were sent back and returned at the right temp. Staff made extra effort to get them right."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This was a fun night. Music, $7.00 drinks, menu specials, the restaurant was full. whats not to like?"
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Sullivan's never ceases to maintain its quality: the best in food, the best in service and in ambiance. The service-from the at-the-door-greeting, to drink refills is attentive, but never overbearing. The food? Always delicious! Special occasion? How about a photo (such a nice surprise!!) taken and presented before leaving-all in an attractive keepsake holder. Attention to detail. Classy. Timeless. Delicious."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We come from Champaign, Illinois to Sullivan's for our anniversary every year. This was our 44th anniversary, and Sullivan's was the perfect place to celebrate."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I love to go to Sullivan's for special occasions. The food and service is consistently excellent and I've never had a bad experience while dining at Sullivan's."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "This was my husbands favorite steakhouse, so we were excited to get a babysitter finally and enjoy an evening out. However, the food was just ok and took too long to come out. We thought they were running out of mint leaves for the mojitos because there were fewer and fewer in each drink, and not muddled. The server wasn't attentive which could have made up for some of the food delays."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "AAAAAAAAA+++++++++ Ladies nite out for 6 (3 from Florida). They were so impressed and we were in awe of the excellent service and food!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "1. Why do high end restaurants allow their servers to use "we" in their speech, for instance, "What are we having?" or "How are we doing?" I am not inviting the server to join my party for dinner. 2. For the 2nd time in a row my "medium" steak was past medium and more well done. Overall, service was good and the Brussel sprouts were excellent."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "There is no better way to describe our first time at Sullivan's Steakhouse other than wonderful! We plan to go back for our anniversaries in the years to come. The interaction with us and the effort to make our experience the best one ever are the most memorable parts of our evening. The food was amazing and I recommend the Peach Mule for a delicious cocktail."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Always enjoy lunch or dinner at Sullivans. Has so much class, which so many restaurants lack these days. From the hostess to the servers, every employee is personable & good at what they do. They also bring warm bread, and room temp butter out, both very good. So many rest. serve unheated bread & cold butter. For lunch we had a kale salad, liked that they were staying with the times of eating healthier. Portion with chicken was quite large."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "My wife and I had a great dinner for her birthday, with the service, seating and food all exceeding our high expectations. We'll be back."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "we made reservations, when seated and ready to order, we were told that the summer special was no longer available. I complained and was the told they did have one special left. The lobster was dry and tough. I was totally disappointed! The waiter had too many tables to handle at once and was not able to assist when needed. We still left a generous tip, even thigh it was not deserved."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We were seated in a room behind the bar - no ambience & room was miserably cold. We were hosting friends who had never dined at Sullivan's & left the restaurant feeling disappointed. Food was good except Caesar salad was sent back due to bitter taste in dressing - this issue was promptly corrected. Table server was great."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The steak is melt in your mouth delicious. It's so good you just kinda smile and giggle in disbelieve every time you take a bite. The shrimp cocktail is also the best I've had. Desserts were very good too. Have not been impressed with sides though. None were bad, just not blow your mind like the rest. By far my favorite restaraunt!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We frequent Sullivan's because we know that both the food and the service will be superior, but unfortunately during this visit the service was just not up to par. The food was absolutely wonderful as it always is, but our server wasn't attentive and at times seemed almost annoyed with our table. We were never even presented with a wine list and when we asked if she would take a picture of our table she said she would have to send over a hospitality team, which never came. We had to ask a different server to take our picture. I believe I was most confused by the slow/poor service because the restaurant was not at all busy. Sullivan's is one of our favorite restaurants so we will continue to visit, but this visit was not a good one."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Great steak, great seafood and many sides to choose from. The lettuce wedge and brownie dessert awesome! We always eat here while in Indy. Service is always outstanding!"

  • "My wife and I have gone to Sullivan's for dinner on our anniversary multiple times. We enjoy the food and have always had such friendly and helpful wait staff that have made the moments that much more special. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a very nice meal with excellent staff."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We were seated promptly. Decided the best choice was the least expensive bottle of cab. The hostess who seated us came by,indicated we had been waiting too long for service, and comped the wine....nice! Calamari appetizer was superb, Caesar salad was great with a delicate unobtrusive dressing. Wife ordered a filet med, I did med rare. We were served each other's order, and the medium filet I received was well done and crunchy on the edges. Soon, a gentleman from the kitchen (manager type) asked about our meals, and I reported the above. He rushed to the kitchen and in about 2 minutes came back with a perfect med rare filet. Sounds like a mixed review, but we were thrilled by the staff's dedication to get it right"

  • "Great restaurant with knowledgeable and timely servers. you can count on consistency visit after visit. Every now and then we try a new competitive venue and we often ask ourselves later why we did it. Would highly recommend..."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We had a app coupon for Sullivans, so we ate here on Sunday, w/our 2 young kids. They usually don't go to "Fancy" restaurants with us, so I knew it would be a challenge. When my kids found out they didn't have coloring pages and crayons, they were disappointed, but our wonderful server (I can't remember her name) made our experience great anyway! She gave the kids cherries for their water which they loved (little things mean a lot!) and engaged them in conversations. I could tell she had children of her own! We ordered one entree, a salad, an app and a couple of sides and we all enjoyed everything. Even my picky-eater daughter liked the shaved Brussels Sprouts! I would have never thought this would be a place for kids, but I was wrong!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "All I can say our visit was fantastic. We are from Milwaukee and we were staying in downtown Indy and rather than Capital Grill, Ruth Chris, Shula's or Morts we decided to take the short trek to Sullivan's. Great pineapple infused martinis, best rib eye I have ever had and service going way and above. Our server Dean was spectacular. Aaron Conover, Manager was gracious, helpful and very accomodating. Even gave us directions to the casino....highly recommend Sullivan's to all!!! Thank you!!!"

  • "My wife's portion of sea scallops was puny--4 tiny pieces for $36. After complaint, the staff brought out an additional 5-6 scallops of much larger size. The waiter was rather pushy and hovered too often at our table. The price of a "special" beef cut was $51 for 3 pieces of meat--and all sides were ala carte on top of that. This restaurant has gone downhill greatly in my estimation. Not nearly as good as Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and more expensive."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "It's a steak place like so many others in Indianapolis. The staff was friendly and attentive, the steaks were cooked exactly as ordered - it was what you would expect from a place like this. The s'mores cake was absolutely fabulous and I would go back just for that."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We had friends from Kansas City, MO visiting us. They and we really enjoyed our visit to Sullivans. Apparently, they have a Sullivans in Kansas City. Our food was very good and our service was exceptional."
