Restaurant seemed to be over booked. Our reservation was at 7:30, however they could not seat us until around 8pm. Both steaks were overdone.

Waited 20 minutes for our reservation. Food was amazing . Service was fair, and not entirely the server’s fault. Waited 20 minutes for 1 drink and 1 glass of wine. Ordered another drink when meal was delivered. Never got it and when server was clearing , she said she would bring it soon. Also , it was my husband’s 50 th birthday. No special dessert or drink , though I had specified in the reservation. Disappointed that service was not great. A bit rushed.

Sadly, this is the worst we have seen at Sullivan's. The wait staff is excellent, the service is outstanding, but the food was terrible. We have been going to Sullivan's for 12 years now. It has always been our go to place for Birthdays, Anniversary's, Graduation, etc. But this time was a bust. First, the order was wrong and they brought us the wrong food. That was okay, and they fixed it but the steak we finally got was awful. I asked if the meat was Prime or Choice and the Chef assured me it was Prime. Well, they need a new supplier of meat. Our steaks were tough, full of grizzle, and barely chewable. I sent the first steak back and the second was as bad as the first. I really like the people there, and the Chef was nice and professional, but the quality of the steaks was worse than any I have experienced including Long Horn and some of the other not so special places. Answer! Get a new meat supplier. I am hesitant to go back, but I guess I will just to see if they made any improvement. It was a busy night, and like I said above, the staff was very good. I felt like I should have stopped after the lettuce wedge.

Food and atmosphere was nice. Food was under cooked, the waitress immediately took the food back to the kitchen and it was cooked longer. Did not have to wait long for the food to come back out. The table behind us and in front of us also sent food back to the kitchen. Overall it is a great place to eat, this is the first time we have had to send food back. We will go back.

Soooo bad. Started with dirty bread plate and stained tablecloth. Salad was smothered with dressing. Sent steak back twice due to overcooking....and then undercooking. Side order was salted and salted and salted again. So gross. Steak itself tasted good (kudos to the cow) and the wine was good (kudos to the grapes). Kitchen looked like a hot mess. Staff was inattentive.

If in Charlotte go down the road to Beef and Bottle, much better steak for the same price. Sullivan’s served one of the worst ribeyes we’ve ever had and it cost $50. Rest of food just OK, nothing special. Definitely over priced for the quality.

Our wedding anniversary, and we were late because of traffic, but Sullivan's handled it beautifully. We had a cozy table, a long-stemmed red rose for my wife, a photograph to take home and a dessert with a candle. The staff was terrific. I am so glad that we told Sullivan's it was our anniversary, because they made it special. We are an older couple, so we split a delicious steak and had a very affordable bottle of Cabernet. Sullivan's made it a special night for us.

What happened to this restaurant?
Traveled 4 hours to get together with family in Charlotte for my husband's birthday at Sullivan which we usually love. This evening the food was terrible and we were overcharged which we didn't find out until we returned home.
7:45 pm and the manager said the had ran out of baked potatoes, at a steakhouse? no baked potatoes?. Well, we ordered several other sides but the mashed potatoes were so very salty we couldn't eat them at all. We had 3 steaks total and 4 seafood dishes plus appetizers. All the steaks were cooked poorly. I had the filet medium temperature. It tasted like a piece of sirloin and it was raw on one side while overcooked and dried on the other. I ordered a bisque that I never received but was still charged for and on top of that we were charged twice for one of the steaks (Cowboy cut). My husband and family were so disappointed we decided to leave without desert. The manager kept coming to our table and apologizing as they forgot food, drinks, food was badly seasoned and I can't get over the "no bake potato" when we made a reservation for 8 people way in advance.
This was worst than going to an Outback. Very poor service and quality.

We used a gift certificate and were very disappointed. Starting with lobster and shrimp bisque that was so salty and pepper hot that I could not taste the seafood ingredients.

Filet arrived, cooked to the correct fineness but had been brined first. Then it was coated in salt and pepper when cooked. Again way too much salt. We cut the crust off but what was left was still briney.

Dessert was also over the top. At least it was over the top in a good way-flavor, garnished with ice cream and whipped cream and caramel sauce, and size. Nice finish to a disappointing dinner.

We sat for about 5-7 minutes without a waiter. Communication between hostess and waiter was not good. Waiter did not know they had a table. Service was par. I would go here again. But if I had to pick between this place and trying something new, I would probably try something new.

This meal was so special. We used to live in Charlotte and would dine at Sullivan's frequently. We now live in the mountains and took our friend from Banner Elk for dinner. You did not disappoint. The meal was fabulous and our waitress was the best. Thanks Sullivan's for being our favorite restaurant in Charlotte.

Sullivan's is one of our favorite places to eat. We always have a good time. Everyone there is always so friendly. They have great food and great service. It's fine dinning, but in a very relaxed environment. We especially like The Sure Thing menu. A lot of food for the price.

I came to Sullivans for my birthday and I must say I will definitely return. I love the dimmed light, the jazz band and the over friendly and educated staff. The waitress almost caused us not to even look at the menu. I had the crab legs and my husband had a bone out steak. The service was excellent and after dinner we sat at the bar and watched the Clemson game as we had more drinks. The Knock out was great!

The steak honestly was one of the worst steaks I've had in awhile. The horseradish mash potatoes were odd and disgusting. The calamari had this cheap asian chili sauce and was so chewy that I found the texture to be not edible. The cheesecake was clearly mass produced and not made in house. I paid 213 USD (includes 20% tip). Our server was very attentive and friendly. The service was the only good part about this experience besides the lobster bisque. Goto Capital Grille if you wanna spend this kind of cash.

Great steaks, cooked just as ordered. Calamari appetizer was tasty and the warm bread took the edge off our hunger. The service was excellent. While the ambiance isn't exactly romantic, it's clean, quiet and offers cozy booths, if you want that. I'd recommend Sullivan's' for business groups.

A very notable Thanksgiving dinner at Sullivan's. Wouldn't ordinarily order turkey at this restaurant but being the day, my wife and I did so. It was nicely prepared - tender moist and generous portion of white meat, with dressing, cranberry sauce (could have been a larger portion of the latter). This was a prie fix meal there were nice holiday desserts. Out daughter and husband, however, enjoyed nicely prepared steaks and sides. The price was very reasonable. They were very busy and got quite a bit behind their customers with reservations - we waited about 40 minutes with reservations. Thanks Sullivan's...we'll be back soon for your great steaks!

The Turkey dinner was excellent, however the sides used to come in separate dishes , now they come all on one plate, making the portions smaller. We have come to Sullivan's. many times and any time that we were seated in the back room it has been Freezing! A beautiful dinner that you need a coat to be comfortable enough to eat. Doesn't make sense!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with a great dinner at Sullivan's. The dinner courses were traditional with generous portions and perfectly prepared. The Service was also excellent with all wait staff working seamlessly together. They topped the dinner off with 3 desert selections and we went for the Banana's Foster bread pudding with ice cream - yummo! Needless to say, we had an excellent time and highly recommend Sullivan's Steak House.

Been to Sullivan's Steakhouse many times in the past both in Charlotte and Raleigh. They are the best steakhouse we have found. Service is always top notch and they aim to please any request. Food is consistently outstanding. Was there for Thanksgiving dinner and found both a wonderful Thanksgiving tasting menu full of traditional favorites and selections from the regular menu as well so it was a hit with everyone. One of the few restaurants where arriving early for a drink at the bar and then smoothly transferred from bar to dining room. Pricing normal for this high end restaurant with separate valet service. Convenient location on 2nd street south of town. BH

First , we decided on Sullivan’s for there Kale salad and sweet potatoes and we were informed they have been removed from the menu. Service was very slow, we didn’t get the attention that we usually get. The side dish we decided on wasn’t that good. Finally we were still finishing and they start clearing our table.
Overall a bad experience. This was not typical for Sullivan’s. Not sure when I would visit again
