My husband and I enjoyed our 35th wedding anniversary lunch here. Our waitress, Olivia, was very attentive and friendly. We ordered the businessman's lunch which was very delicious. We both got Delmonico steaks. Mine had a little fat, but hubby's was fine. Overall, enjoyed it.
We mentioned our anniversary when deciding on dessert and Olivia said it was on the house. She even took a photo of us, (printed and framed it too) with our chocolate lovers dessert. That was a wonderful touch.
We will be back!

Food and service very good. Nice portion size. Room temperature was cold. Prices high. We were surprised that the waitresses had to wear very short skirts. Found this degrading to women. Male wait staff did not have to walk around in shorts! Did not feel rushed. Staff had us cut into food before they left us to make sure food was done to our liking.

While all was good. This is the second time that I have been there and they ran out of a main course after I ordered it. I have a problem with that

Awesome service. Dining room was too dark, barely could read my menu. Sad to say, my bone in kc ribeye lacked flavor. Best bread pudding ever.

Our server was very inattentive. Took forever to get our food. We had to flag her down to get more water. When she dropped off the check she just dropped it and left. Never said thank you. We eat here frequently and this was not one of our better experiences.

I would recommend Sullivan's with caveats. My wife and I each ordered the 8 oz. filet mignon. My wife ordered her steak, medium. It came out medium well; it was slightly overcooked from the way in which she had ordered it. I ordered mine, Pittsburgh medium. It was not "Pittsburghed". Instead, it had a peppercorn topping. Either the chef didn't know what he was doing, or the waiters (Tim and Damon), wrote down the wrong thing, or the chef couldn't read what was written by the waiters, or the waiters served us the wrong order.

The baked potato tasted as though it had been warmed over.

The potatoes au gratin were flavorless. They had no seasoning. The cheese used was not sharp enough, hence the lack of flavor. I would recommend staying away from these. They are not worth the calories!

Sullivan's Steakhouse is our go-to for great steak and drinks. We have always enjoyed our time spent there. Deserts are always delicious . Bread with our meals is always scalding hot just the way it should be.
Highly recommended

We decided to make our selections from the Prefix menu last evening and they were absolutely delicious. We had the Salmon and an 8oz Filet along with steamed Broccoli, a perfect meal for the 2 of us. We followed this up with Key Lime cheesecake which was delightful.
Our server, Stephanie was very attentive and helpful with our wine selections.
A very nice evening!!!

Soup was not hot when served, coffee was not hot when served, and waitress wasn't around to remedy issues. Two of the 4 steaks were not cooked as ordered, although they were returned to the kitchen and recooked.

I ordered a bone-in strip steak (med)&lobster tail. The steak came out well done, when they took my plate it had half of my side items on it, they brought it back 15mins later with no sides on the new plate. Steak tasted burnt again(the bone was completely charred and burnt and also no side items left to have with my burnt steak. The lobster tail literally tasted frozen or like plastic. I wasn’t going to complain but this weekend we went to Ruth Chris and paid the SAME amount (175$ for two) and it was not even comparable. Very disappointed, and when I told friends about my experience they all said the same thing “you should have went to King of Prussia Sullivan’s the one in Wilmington is never good”. The server was fine she did a great job but the food was unacceptable for the price.

While waiting outside to be seating, no more than s few seconds went by and a server came out to ask us if we needed anything. We told her we were just waiting for the rest of our party. Moments later another server came out to ask us if we needed anything. Both ladies were very friendly and accommodating.

Our server for the evening was also very friendly, helpful and attentive. We enjoyed our meal. The wine was completely over priced and apps were too but everything tasted great.

I’d recommend the place based upon this visit.

I guess a new computer system was installed and the training was not thorough. Beside that, our server was not together with the order on the details and checking back was non existent. Loved the food once we got it. Love Sullivan’s. But not the server.

Our steaks arrived at our table like warm yet our si gratin potatoes were pipping hot. The server did not listen to our dinner selections and never came back to check on our table. Normally the mags Rt comes around to check if your dinner is go well! That did not happen so we did not have an opportunity to share our lack of a great date night dinner experience.

Made reservation for 7:30. Disappointed in wait time to be seated. Hostess did not provide me an update after 30minutes. I had to remind her that we’ve been waiting. Seated at 4 top because we believe she just forgot about our reservation. My wife and I frequent this location 2x a month and disappointed in this experience.
