3 of us went to dinner for my father’s birthday. Overall it was a nice night. We ordered the horseradish mash potato’s as a side, unfortunately there was a large piece of plastic in the potatoes that ended up in my mouth. The waitress came over and realized the problem who then alerted a manager who came over, however he did not address the issue; he was actually dismissive of the incident. Later on the head restaurant manager came over and assured us that the problem would be corrected; he was extremely professional and handled the matter accordingly. He apologized for the way the staff handled the problem. Because of him; I would gladly go back to Sullivan’s and have dinner again with the family.

We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff were all very pleasant. Our waiter found out it was our anniversary and he decorated our table with a card for our anniversary and pink rose petals. He gave us each a dessert of our choice on the house. We celebrate all our special occasions and are always pleased.

Sullivan's in Wilmington Delaware is my favorite dining establishment. You are greeted by professional individuals who acknowledge you,inquire about your reason for dining with them and offer coat check, which is a fading experience in other restaurants. The chefs at Sullivan's offer mouth watering and inviting cuisine. When we order a steak rare, it's rare, per the grilling standards. The sides are delicious and plenty. We always have some to take home for later. The managers are always around to welcome you and to inquire about your dining pace, taste and over all satisfaction. Wine bottles line up for inspection and offer the palate a dance for the senses. We always recommend Sullivan's to all our family, friends and future friends.

Had Thanksgiving dinner with my father. The look of the bar is modern and the dining room still traditional. Quiet which is ok. Ambience music would be nicer in my opinion. Service is superb, thanks to Kayla for her advice on menu and wine. All the staff is knowledgeable and excellent. Menu was perfectly balanced and well cooked. Gratitud and appreciation to the executive chef and the kitchen staff. Excellent experience!

I spent my Thanksgiving holiday at Sullivan's and enjoyed every minute of it. My food was delicious and my drinks were superb. My server was great also and the GM stopped by our table to make sure we were getting a good experience. I would definitely recommend Sullivan's (especially this location) for a nice night out or special occasion. It wasn't my first time and it won't be my last!

We went here for Thanksgiving Dinner. It was super busy but our waitress was perfect. She had great timing and we never waited for anything. The water glasses were kept filled throughout our dinner. The food was absolutely perfect. It was great having a Thanksgiving menu offered along with the regular menu, because not everyone at the table wanted the turkey dinner. Great time and will go back again very soon.

Outstanding Thanksgiving dinner! The turkey special was a very solid value, with appetizer, entrée, two sides and dessert for $39. Very good service in a pleasant environment. We will be back when we are in the Wilmington area.

Thanksgiving fit for a queen. Steaks were cooked perfectly. The shrimp cocktail was amazing. The side items, such as the mushrooms and au graten potatoes melted in your mouth. Specials thanks to Jordan, our waiter, for the excellent wine recommendation. The nutella creme brulee dessert was decadent. Fantastic choice for Thanksgiving.

Great steaks and mashed potatoes. Staff was friendly and prompt, even though I thought each was probably attending to too many tables. Overall score = 9/10. Our only drawbacks: one person in our party ordered a chicken dish and thought it was just "OK"; my manhattan definitely had too much sweet vermouth; restaurant is in a strip mall, so it has zero views, but the atmosphere inside is very nice.

As usual, my steak was the best I've ever had. Worth the price. TRIED to get a drink at the bar while waiting for table..... ha, maybe if I waved a $20 bill I would have scored. But table service was good, and again, food outstanding.

It was a very busy Saturday evening and we did not get seated at our reservation time. However, when were called we lucked out with a comfy booth.
The waitress asked if we were celebrating anything special and we told her it was our anniversary.
She returned with rose petals for the table and a small card.
We were not rushed as we ordered a bottle a wine. Our filets were cooked to order and delicious.
We were offered complimentary dessert which we choose to have packaged to go.
The evening was very special thanks to the attentive staff. We will return again !

On e of favorite restaurants. Excellent steak house.
Great ambiance, waitresses classy & beutiful.
Signature drink “Knockout” is the best martini around!
- well worth going just for the Knockout Martini
But the steaks are to “die-for”. Bone in KC or the Wagyu strip are by far their tastiest!
For being the more “affordable, casual” sister cousin of Del Frisco’s we think their steaks are by far tastier & far better seasoned.
Lastly, their sides are wonderful and their creamed spinach is the best ever.
Don’t believe me, try it yourself, but bring your cc or wallet b/c it’s not “Applebees” but well worth the money 💰. Enjoy!!! Doc
