We took my granddaughter and her wife out for a celebration of her marriage before being deployed to Northern Europe. Our waiter was fantastic and attentive despite the restaurant being extremely busy. Some neighbors joined us as well. Everyone agreed that the calamari was absolutely the best we had ever had anywhere in the world, including Europe and Asia. We also agreed that all of our dinners were perfection. Our selections included both sea food and steaks. All of us are very picky when it comes to food and were delighted with the food as well as the service. Thanks for a wonderful evening!

Our reservation request was exactly what we asked with the only exception of the waiter but that was fine. They were very busy but yet spot on service. The food was delicious but I think it’s not quite as good as it used to be but maybe it’s because it was so busy. This is our special occasion place. I give them a 5 star rating.

Joe, our server, was delightful. Our party had the hanger steak, the horseradish coated steak and the house risotto with scallops. Every bite of every meal was spectacular. For dessert, there was chocolate crunch cake, red velvet cake, and carrot cake. The oohs and aahs confirmed that the desserts were scrumptious. Our desserts were rich and flavorful without being too sweet. I can't wait to go back.

Sam was our waiter. It was crowded for New Years Eve but we sat in an area that wasn’t too crowded and was roomy. As busy as they were Sam did a wonderful job taking care of us. The food was out of this world. We had appetizers and drinks and then our entree. Trigger fish was one of the specials and 3 out of 4 of us ordered that and the food was just outstanding!!! The owner came over and spent time with us and we really appreciated that as he is taking care of his customers and great customer service. Yes we will definitely go back again. Hopefully sooner than later. Thanks Sullivan’s!!!

Four of us neighbors went out for an early New Year's Eve Dinner. Our table was ready on time and the food, service and upstairs table were the best! Always been a favorite with us and we will continue to come back.

Overall the food and service were great!
owners did a great job with revitalizing interior of old building into a Metropolitan Grill food tastes delicious however they definitely need some help in regards to the person that grills their steaks they need training in regards to learning temperature and color Etc ...
they also are heavy-handed with the salt.. the food will be just as good with less salt😮
overall good experience

We were looking for a nice place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We are from Georgia and did not know the area. My web search showed great reviews and the menu looked appetizing. This was an excellent choice. The food was cooked to perfection and delicious. The staff members were very attentive. We would love to visit again if in the area.

Normally I am thrilled with Sullivan's, unfortunately this last time was a huge disappointment. My steak was overcooked, our server was terrible and rude and we had to ask (basically demand) bread. We even asked to be shown desert and our server said "you can go up if you want I guess" and just left us. Extremely disappointing experience.

A little disappointed in Sullivan’s this past visit. My husband and I went before Christmas and it was decorated nicely. The food and service, however, were mediocre. We ordered the sweet potato and blue cheese appetizer and it was way too salty. so salty we couldn’t even finish half of it. The waitress did nothing. The house salad is practically a bowl of weeds. My main dish was the portobello ravioli. It was good. Our waitress barely refilled our drinks and when she did finally fill them, it was with the wrong beverage. Overall, Sullivan’s has a lovely atmosphere, but the food and experience was not worth the price of the meal.

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and had a marvelous time. The food and service were excellent as always and it was a wonderful meal. The only issue I had was that I had ordered steak that night. Usually, at Sullivan's, the waiter or waitress will bring out a steak knife before the meal arrives and that happened this time as well. But when I looked at it I noticed it was dirty. I pointed this out to our waiter and he apologized and brought another knife. So, it might be a good idea to take a close look at the cutlery before bringing it to the table. But, otherwise, a special night.

Food was good but not great and prices were a bit high for Anderson SC. It was a very busy Friday night which caused service to be a bit slow. Great wine selection by the glass and bottle at reasonable prices with a decent size pour.

We went with the expectation of having a romantic evening. We were dressed up and we had tables around us dressed in football shirts and shorts. Price of entrees was high based upon the casual environment. There should be a dress code. Entrees were wonderfully presented but menu was limited. Waitress was loud and it felt we were in Denny's. The restaurant was very noisy. Remainder of gift certificate was not given back to us even though it over the price of the bill. Tip was paid separately. Very disappointed.
