We were in town to open a new restaurant and was recommended to Sullivan's by a long time residence in Anderson. Highly recommended! The crab cakes were delicious. For my entree, I got the Two Filets. The filets were absolutely fantastic!!! If we visit again, we will definitely be coming back to Sullivans!
P.S. their carrot cake was to die for! ;)

this restaurant exceeded my expectations in every possible way! I can't wait to go back! It's really all about the food, but the atmosphere was nice also. I'm sure that there is always something you could find to complain about if you really wanted to, but when the food is this good, it makes everything nice. I can't wait to thank my friend for telling me about this great establishment.

First visit, dine out upscale 3-4 x / week
Pros:
Really attentive service, took time to explain menu options, recommend regular favorites
Bar drinks good
Downtown Anderson has improved
Cons:
Food pricey and quality not consistent with price
Atmosphere - brightly lit, no real ambiance. Older space with a lot of unrealized potential.

We love Sullivan’s. We invited our neighbors to join us as a thank-you for taking care of our house while we were away. The risotto- of - the day was very good. The scallops we ordered with it were a little disappointing. Tasty, but very small. Didn’t seem worth the $9 add-on. Our friend ordered the lamb pops off the appetizer menu as an entree- our server was very accommodating, and this proved to be an excellent choice, paired with the risotto. The salmon was also excellent. Our one disappointment was the special...the halibut was a little over cooked, but a nice portion and good. But the side dish (Cajun rice with sausage? ... not sure) was not good, and the crab on top of the halibut was lost in the Cajun spice. But overall, we had a good experience. The desserts were exceptional, as always, and the wine selection was very nice

We ordered the duck but we won't order that again. The duck was probably fine but we probably just don't care for duck. We like Sullivan's because it gives one the option of trying unusual menu items.

First time visit. Service was unbelievably good. Table is set with ice water poured. Wine list was good, and the bottle we ordered was delivered quickly, and properly served. Appetizers were quickly followed by salads, and quickly followed by entrees. Twin filets was just ok. Good flavor, not great meat cut. Other standard filets ordered were reportedly good. Parmesan truffle potatoes were great! (I usually don't eat potatoes, but finished them. Vegetables were delicious. Lobster bisque was okay. Cucumber melon dressing was good. Bill was $60 per person with appetizer and entree, $20 per person of which was wine. Noise level was fairly low despite a big crowd on a Saturday night. Kaitlin did a great job serving. I will definitely go back.

7 out of 5 stars. Get the trigger fish. Appetizers, soups, salads, meals and desserts were all the best we have ever had. Appetizers, meal, dessert and a bottle of wine was just over $100. Well worth it. The service is as incredible as the food. I can't wait to go back.

We had a party of 10. We were very disappointed in the seating arrangement that we had. We were seated upstairs and we were very crowded. We could not talk to our family and friends. Five of us were seated on a bench seat against the wall and it was very inconvenient to get up to go to the restroom. There were tables with parties of 10 on each side of us. The food and the service was great as always but we were not happy with our seating arrangements especially when they had an extra room available that was completely empty.

We go to Sullivan's for special occasions and sometimes for lunch on our weekly shopping trips. The food is always ALWAYS awesome and the staff are terrific! If you don't save room for dessert, buy a dessert to take home and eat it later. It's worth the calories!

We have been going to Sullivan's for over 12 years, and it never disappoints. Recently we made the plunge and moved here from Atlanta. Sullivan's could hold its own in the Atlanta dining scene - which is saying a lot. The service is always impeccable - even on special events. The Christmas Tree Lighting and Valentine's Day are two recent examples where they increased the staff and managed their reservations so their flawless service continued unabated. The food is CONSISTENTLY excellent; from the fish to the beef to the pasta. And their burger has some kind of special sauce that really is special ! From the historic architecture to the "to die for" desserts, Sullivan's is a wonderful fine dining experience in the heart of downtown Anderson.
