We had a delightful anniversary dinner from beginning to end. Our waitress, Michelle was excellent. We both enjoyed the shrimp and lobster bisque. My ribeye was amazing. My hubby enjoyed his scallops. He especially loved the garlic mashed potatoes and creamed corn. My creamed spinach was great. The bread was delicious. They surprised us with a tasty piece of cheesecake to complete our meal on a plate with the words Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. The portions were large and if we weren’t visiting from out of town would have made another great meal. Definitely a repeater.

Great service, A+!, We were treated very well from the time we arrived to when we left. Our waiter was very professional and attentive. I was a little dissapointed in the steak, had bone in aged ribeye and it was a bit tough for being a prime cut.

Everything was delicious. Do yourself a "flavor" and save room for the desserts. The chocolate melt down and banana foster bread pudding were outstanding.

It was good but not worth the money. The steak was too salty and the macaroni was undercooked.

We love dining at Sullivan's! For this visit, the scallops were either or both a little over-ripe/over-done. I didn't mention it, but I definitely would next time. Other than that the steak was a fantastic cut of meat and cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were a tad dry and could definitely have used some butter or fat to flavor them more. The Shrimp cocktail appetizer came out with a large vein draped over the very top one. Once we pointed this out, it was replaced right away. Finally, we ended the night with complimentary delicious cheesecake celebrating a birthday. Even with the things I'd change, overall a great experience and we will be back.

We are usually incredibly pleased with our experience at Sullivan’s. However, this time included some issues. My filet and mashed potatoes were both dry. It was the first time I ordered from the prix fixe menu and wonder if the quality is lower in general. My husband’s steak was not cooked at the proper temperature and had to be returned. The quality, however, was very good.

In addition, we were seated right by the hustle and bustle of the kitchen/server area which decreased my enjoyment of the ambiance.

I expect this was an anomaly, as we usually are very satisfied at Sullivan’s.

My wife had the filet and I had the rib-eye. We both agreed that the steaks were some of the best we've had in a long time. Hadn't been to Sullivan's in a while, but I'm sure we will be returning soon.

Went to celebrate birthday and anniversary. Very slow service with food and to get water. Individual bringing water was impolite/poorly trained. Despite telling Chris our waiter what we were celebrating we received no acknowledgement. Steak was salty and over cooked. Calamari appetizer was excellent.
Overall poor experience. I will probably not go back.

The steaks were acceptable, but not exceptional. I did expect it to be better for the price.

This experience is what I needed to stop going to steakhouses. I had a gift card to use and booked the reservation. We arrived early and were seated. At no point did the waiter go over or describe the menu of available food options. I ordered a mixed drink which took far too long to arrive. While the server was attentive and attempting to be helpful, it came across as amateur and unhelpful. For 2 people to eat the smallest steak on the menu and a kids cheeseburger we were still out $100 out of pocket after the gift card was subtracted. The dark and noisy room is I guess expected with the steak house vibe but this just really did not live up to the expectation.

Celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary.
I have to say, we had a wonderful evening. Jenn did an excellent job serving us. She is very helpful,personable, and informative in her role.
I was disappointed in one specific thing.
Your website says business casual. My wife and I made a point of “dressing up”. I am retired and live on a large lake in the summer,the Gulf of Mexico in the winter months. I am a lot more comfortable in a pair of shorts, polo Tee, and flip flops. However, we took the guidance listed on your website.
The husband of the first couple to follow us in the door had on a crew neck tee, shorts, and tennis shoes.
When we were seated a family came in with a boy in his late teens wearing a basketball jersey, gym trunks, a backpack and shower slides.
Either pick a lot “dress code” of business casual, etc. and if you do, stick with it. Turn away people who look like they don’t care how they are dressed. Or don’t bother posting a dress code. If you are going to allow attire that represents one just came from the beach or a picnic then don’t post business casual as your expected attire.
We made the effort to follow your guidance. Others should, as well.

Steak was over cooked. We ordered medium RARE and it was medium or more done. Mentioned to waiter. Steak was still decent but disappointing.
Appetizer crab cake was delish! Very full
Of crab. Not so much filling like some restaurants.

We celebrated our 42nd Wedding Anniversary! The staff made sure that we enjoyed our time with friendly service with a smile! The table was decorated with Red Rose 🌹 Petals, and Sullivan’s took a picture of us which was put in a frame and a signed by some of the employees, in addition to a surprise slice of cheesecake!!! Our server was Terry and he was awesome!!! The food was soooo amazing and delicious! Thanks to all for a wonderful and memorable evening! We can’t wait to return to Sullivan’s in Indianapolis!

Jennifer was our server and she was fantastic. She was informative and very attentive. She gets 5 stars. Al the managers and Jennifer wished us happy anniversary. The cheesestake egg rolls were wonderful and were the oysters. Ribeye and fllet were cooked perfectly. Gorgonzola garlic butter for the steak no words can describe. There were rose petals at our table and a card signed by the staff. The cheesecake with happy anniversary written in chocolate was over the top. We will definitely recommend Sullivan’s and can’t wait to return.

Food was good but our server was very slow. We waited a very long time to order our cocktails after we were seated. The server seemed slow on the draw and distracted. We had ordered wine to be brought out with our dinner but had to remind our server and the wine didn’t make an appearance until we were basically finished with our steaks. Very disappointing and really affected the ambiance and feel of our meal. Server was very attentive to the couple in front of us, so I know he can do it. Not sure why we got the short end of his service since we were there first.

We live in Indaianpolis and don't often go to steak houses and haven't been to Sullivans in many many years! Boy that is a mistake. Our recent meal there was one of the best we have ever had in Indaianpolis. Everything was wonderful from the seafood, to service, too steaks, to sides........in other words everything! We ordered a variety of steaks and everyone was cooked to the ordered temperature. If anything they could improve the ambiance a bit but with food and service as good as it was who cares about the ambiance!!! As I mentioned earlier, we haven't been to Sullivans in years but we will be going back.

Steak was too well done for what was ordered but was a good steak. Iceberg salad was particularly good. They did a great job for my daughter's birthday celebration with a photo and a complimentary piece of cheesecake.

This is the second time we have really been disappointed. Our server was good. The food and drinks were very overpriced for the quality. Steak was pretty tough and the sides were pretty tasteless.
