    It was very good, but disappointing that we made a reservation 48 hours ahead of time and still had to wait for a table. The dinning room is noisy the bar area is actually more quiet. Service was good and food was very good. Over steakhouses prefer Flemings over Sullivans due to the prompt seating, great service, superior food, and the same price.

    We had not been to Sullivan's in several years.....it was as good as we remembered it! My wife and I dined there last Saturday evening. We both had the 8 oz filet which were excellent. We shared grilled asparagus and skillet mushrooms as sides which were both delicious. I started my meal with the iceberg lettuce wedge, and my wife had the kale salad. Again, both were terrific. Excellent service added to the high quality if our meal. Sullivan's is, of course, always pricey but worth it!

    Our waiter, Christopher is an asset to the restaurant staff. He's professional; very personable, but not too chatty. Daniella was in training and will learn the ropes soon enough. Good luck! We have had some great bottles of wine at Sullivan's, and this evening's was no exception. A delicious 12 year old cab to celebrate our anniversary. Too bad it was the last one. We'll be searching for it elsewhere for sure...it was a fine compliment to a great steak dinner.

    Dined on 7/5/2014
    Sullivan's is a fantastic restaurant. The food was great and it was easy to identify the smokey flavors that the chef is going for. As far as price, it seems that the guest is paying for the brand, as you can get the same dining experience at Firebirds for half the price. This does not go to say that I will not return to Sullivan's, as well as recommend it to my friends.

    I brought a party of 3 here for dinner. We all ordered the Summer Fling, filet with a half of lobster. It was delicious. We also had the tomato & Mozzarella Salad, cheese steak egg rolls & the tuna appetizer everything was perfect. We had great service, they were knowledgeable regarding the menu and wines. I have been to sullivan's a number of times and I'll keep going back.

    Dined on 7/4/2014
    We have frequented Sullivan's over the years, but have been disappointed with the food lately. I ordered the Steak & Lobster. The steak was delicious! However, the lobster tasted very musky and smelled very fishy (likely the cause of the musky, unpleasant taste). Anyway, the manager offered me a replacement, but I turned down the offer. Apparently, he checked the lobster and noticed the odor as well. So, he removed the entire dinner from the bill, although half credit would have been fine. Anyway, I appreciate what the manager did, but I'm really concerned about the food of late (two previous issues over the past year). Consequently, we're really not sure if we're willing to give them one more chance...we'll see...

    After having lived in DE/PA area for five years, this was the first time I dined at Sullivan's with friends. The atmosphere was cozy, and the staff very friendly. The food was good, especially the steaks. Everyone at my table tried the filet mignon, and/or Kansas steak, and they were very pleased with the quality and the taste of the cut. It was a memorable dinner for us.

    High quality steaks, delicious appys, friendly and proper service...a treat for a special occasion. Perhaps the highest price point in the area though for food and drinks. The promotion (Surf & Turf) at $42 and the prix fixed dinner at $39 were well worth the price.

    My son was turning 15 and wanted to try a steak house for his birthday dinner. Our meals took a very long time, and we were not served all at the same time. In addition, since we told them it was a birthday celebration, they offered him a choice of cheesecake or pie for dessert. We ordered pie, but the manager said they were out of birthday candles. Then we ordered an additional dessert for the table, and the waitress brought only the additional dessert, set it down in front of my son, and said , "Happy birthday, buddy." Very anticlimactic.

    Finally found the time to get to Sullivan's and what a great experience it was. The wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly (without being invasive or overly familiar), and outstanding. The steak was what I expected, cooked top perfection and delicious ( I got the filet, medium rare). I was very impressed with the wine list as well. I would defiantly recommend this spot.

    We eat here often. Once in a great while we have to send our filet back for further cooking..Not this time! It and everything else was perfect! It was my husbands first Fathers' Day without any kids around. I took him to Sullivan's. We had a great time and everything was great. Bill is an awesome manager always making sure everything is just so. I'm also glad you carry Blue Coat Gin. My husband doesn't drink often but enjoys a gin and tonic on occasion (with Blue Coat Gin)!

    POSITIVES: The food and waitstaff were excellent. They also have a nice wine list. Everything was prepared wonderfully and it was a thoroughly delicious meal. Our waitress (Anna?) was perfect: friendly and efficient but not intrusive. Servers delivered our meals in a quiet, efficient way. NEGATIVES: Other than the person who drove (who was parking the car) our party arrived together, including a disabled person. They had plenty of tables available for our 6:30 reservation, but the front desk didn't offer to seat us immediately - we had to wait for the driver! That seems thoughtless. Also, the manager (Kim?) came by our table to check in, and was not tuned in at all that she was interrupting - and her tone was rather rude, too.

    TravelForWorkVIP
    Dined on 6/3/2014
    Went for a business dinner and we all ordered steaks, of course. The two rare ribeyes were delicious. However, the two medium steaks (one ribeye and one filet mignon) were even rarer than the rare steaks. It took several minutes to get someone back to the table to report this cooking error and they took the steaks back to the kitchen. When the two of us with rare steaks were already 3/4 done with our food, the medium steaks finally returned medium-well and charred. By this time it was late and my guests were just hungry and did not want to have to complain again, so they just ate their steaks. You would think being a "steakhouse" they would be able to actually cook a $60 steak properly. We had a $500 bill and it was in no way worth it.

    Sullivan's is a great place to get a perfectly cooked steak. My husband prefers his steak medium rare and most restaurants in the area tend to over cook their steaks. which is frustrating when steak is so expensive. Sullivan's sends out a perfectly cooked steak every time. The food is great, although at our recent visit the noise level and music was super loud and it was difficult to have a conversation with our guests. Service was slow but it was a very busy Saturday night, the food was worth the wait!

    everything was exceptional up until the end. our server (who was excellent) had asked during the course of dinner if we were here for a special occasion, to which we replied it was my bf's birthday. after dinner, our server brought us a piece of cheesecake, said happy birthday to my bf and said it was on him. very nice, we thought (although my bf hates cheese cake), until we received the bill and we had been charged for it. kind of a slimy move, which put a damper on an otherwise stellar experience. thanks.

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,
