The food is very good, not sure the prices for wine and food are a match to what you get.

My husband & I came here for Sunday Brunch before the Panthers game. It was outstanding! We loved our entrees and my Pork belly Bloody Mary was amazing!! This was our second brunch visit. The first was less than desirable (they had just started serving brunch) but this visit was perfect in every way. Brooke our server was positive, friendly & knowledgeable. She gave us the perfect balance of attention and our privacy. We will definitely return. Highly recommend.

5 of the 8 steaks that were ordered we cooked incorrectly. Badly! We aren’t a group that complains so 3 people didn’t say anything. 2 people had to sent the steaks back 2 times. This is my second time with Sullivans. First time was amazing. I expected much better from the kitchen of a steak house when ordering steak!

I made reservation so I didn't have to wait long. The server was sweet and knew her menu. The food didn't take long to arrive to our table. The flavor of the food was on point. The steak was cook correctly but I wasn't too thrilled on the KC Strip I had. I will I like have just went with the strip. I blame myself for that. My lady picked Brussels sprouts and I picked the au gratin potatoes. She had a good time and that's what was important to me. I would come back and choose the strip or the filet next time.

After we waited almost 20 minutes for a server to come over the service was great. The noise in general was ok but a family with two young children were sat behind us. I understand they have the freedom to go out to dinner, but I did not pay $200 to listen to their kids cartoon. It did lesson the enjoyment of celebrating my husbands birthday dinner.

We waited 15 minutes before we flagged down a server, who told us our tables server had gone home. A manager was standing around the other side of the room but never even checked in with diners around us. Took a long time for our food to arrive once we got to order. Shrimp in the shrimp cocktail was not fresh, Brussels sprouts were tasty. But we Won’t be going back anytime soon .

I have been to Sullivan's many times over the years. The food this time was off just a little. I'm hoping that was a one-off. Will be going back, still like the people like the food.

This was our third visit to Sullivan’s. We have always had a great experience there. This time we went with the specials, rather than the regular menu. The grouper, which my husband had, was wonderful. The bone-in filet I had with shrimp was not. So disappointed, but did not want to ruin our special night.

Maybe expectations were to high because of the prices, but the KC strip was tough to eat and cut. Filet was ordered medium and came out well. Brussels sprouts weren’t cut properly so the stems were attached. Took almost 2 hours for the meal with no appetizers or desserts. Waiter showed up once after we ordered when we checked out.

Our food was delicious- it was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. What was disappointing, was that I spent $46 on a steak and that was the only thing on the plate- no sauce, no garnish- presentation was lacking. My husband ordered the scallops and the plate was beautiful- sauce ringed the plate and microgreens were atop the scallops. We shared a side of fingerling potatoes and they were amazing! I commented to our server that I really enjoyed whatever they were seasoned with and she offered to bring out additional sauce. I used that on my steak and that made a difference- a little sauce goes along way!

Parking is by complementary valet. This was our first visit to Sullivan's and we didn't know that the lot was valet only. Our attendant was quick and went to get our car as soon as we came out of the restaurant.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Sullivan's. I really appreciate the nice touch of the rosw petals on the table to commemorate the occasion. Our server was attentive and gave great menu suggestions. My husband had the salmon (blackened) and I had the NY strip. Let me just say my steak was DELICIOUS! It was cooked to preference and very flavorful! Augratin potatoes were outstanding also. My husband's salmon with fingerling potatoes was cooked to perfection as well!
The restaurant was a bit noisy which detracts from the ambience. I also didn't like the table selection we were given. I was so close to the table beside us, it felt like we were at the same table. I felt a better table could have been given, especially since the 2 tables behind us were empty.
Overall this was a great experience! We will definitely visit again! Next time we will dine closer to the live music! Thanks Sullivan's for a special evening.

Health score is 90.5, three portable air conditioning units in use in the seating areas and do not believe the ads saying they have Prime Rib Sundays. We were told they only cooked enough prime rib for eights servings on Sunday and we missed it coming in at 7PM.

I think the food is good. The filet mignon is delicious. I find the selection of wines by the glass to be poor and especially the amount of wine poured into a wine glass is certainly lacking considering the price paid for a glass. My glass was $ 14 and my wife's was $ 17. We were poured 1/4 of a wine glass. When I looked up the price of a bottle at Harris Teeter, it was $ 19.99,
Lastly, this was a special occasion for my wife's birthday and nothing was special about it. This was my second visit in three weeks but I will not return!

Most of our group still loved the experience. The air conditioning was out of order so many bandaids in place. And I ordered fish instead of a steak, that was my own mistake. Simply didn’t love it. Would still go back based on previous fantastic visits!

First, the "hostess: couldn't find our reservation made on "open table" 4 days earlier and confirmed. Second, the service from our "server", Maria. was totally non-exixtant, Third, our food was not good at all and nobody came close enough to our table to complain to so we picked at it, left it, asked for our check which was also screwed up, and left - Never to return.

We have been going to Sullivan’s for years. Tonight’s experience was not very pleasant. It began with fruit flies pestering us throughout the evening. 2 of our steaks were overcooked and an additional side was not delivered when our entrees were brought out and we canceled it. The waitress disappeared for long periods and could be seen standing and chatting with other wait staff folks and kitchen workers. No one seemed to be in charge. There were very few patrons in the restaurant and it seems like service and food prep quality should have been easy and better.

Sullivan's use to be my go to place but the last two times I have been there I, we will not go back. It started at the valet, in which we had to wait a long time. it seemed they had lost the guys keys before me. When we got in we ordered steaks cooked medium with Oscar sauce. Two of the three steaks were well done, no red to be found. The Oscar was just a couple of crab pieces on top, no sauce. After the meal we went out to the valet and first the they guy had a hard time finding my keys, then took a very long time getting the car. It was about 9:30pm and we were the only ones so it wasn't like they were busy. When I did get my vehicle the drivers seat was soaking wet from the rain. Not sure how it got that way but my pants ended up soaked on the butt.

Not going back again.
