The staff went above and beyond to change our Thanksgiving reservation after our Nana hurt herself and needed medical attention. The service was absolutely outstanding. The manager was a constant presence and was working just as hard as his servers. The portion size was extremely generous and the food was delicious. We started this Thanksgiving tradition last year and will keep it going.

My experience at Sullivan's this time around was not like my last. My friend and I ordered filet medium and it came out medium well, pretty close to well done. It's frustrating when you're spending a decent amount on filet and they can't get it the way you want. I had to send mine back and wait which led to my sides being cold. My friend should have sent hers back, but felt uncomfortable doing so. After having a problem with our meats I am surprised the manager didn't stop by our table to apologize as well. Since he was pacing through the restraurant all night. This experience has diminished the wow experience I had last time at the Baltimore location.

Food was great, food came out fast but waitress was overwhelmed by too many tables and we had extraordinarily long waits after the food was served, waiting for the check, waiting for desert, waiting to sign the credit card. Sort of spoiled a special occasion.

Not my best dining experience, seems to be going down hill from last year, there survey would not address my concerns about the quality of food or dining experience. Once loyal customers....We're looking for a new steakhouse, very disappointed!

Waiter had three tables, there were two of us we placed our entire order and we were there before any other table, at least 15 minutes. Afterwards a table of 8 and then another table of 8 or more. We were basically forgotten, drinks ran out, long waits between any type of refills or fresh cocktails or cleaning of empty plates off tables. I am not even sure we were asked how our meal was. We have eaten at the Sullivan's chain for well over 10+ years and the Wilmington, DE location continues to disappoint us. The service at the Inner Harbor location in Baltimore, MD is top notch no matter how many in your party or how many people / tables your server has to attend to.

We had a great time the food was very good and our server Mattie was great. She could read we were open and friendly and feed on it. We had a great time the food was very good and just how we ordered it. Some of the best steak in the area.

Nice atmosphere, good service, good menu! They use a lot of salt/seasoning on meat & fish. The cuts are excellent, so they don't need to cover anything up w salt! We will ask for no salt next visit & I'm sure it will be excellent!!!

It was our wedding anniversary and as soon as we were seated, our table was covered with rose pedals and a nice card wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Our waitress was fantastic and she and everyone from the Manager to the water server took a moment to provide us good wishes. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the environment. We enjoyed it so much that we made reservations for our family for Thanksgiving. Outstanding environment, outstanding food and outstanding service. What more could you want. Oh....and they provided desert as a treat for our Anniversary. Dinner here added to this special day for the both of us.

The service was outstanding. Everyone was friendly and the table photo was a great touch. Giving a free dessert was also a good birthday gesture. The steak was good but not as good as Ruth Chris. I would also like to see a sweet potatoes casserole on the menu. My problem with the food was the stuffed lobster tails tasted a bit fishy and just was not good. I did not want to make a big deal of it and ruin my wife's celebration.

I was not that impressed and it was not like I remember it to be like a few years ago. the service at the bar was good but then they stuck us in this table right next to the kitchen. It was noisy and all the hussle and traffic from the wait staff and managers congregated directly next to our table. In my opinion there should not even be a table there. Maybe if we were sat in a different location the experience would have been different. Also our server was not the fastest but he did get everything correct.

The noise level was lower in the back room. It was nice. The wait staff seemed more attentive this rime; perhaps it was because we indicated on our reservations that it was our anniversary, or perhaps it was because we were in the back room, but whatever the reason it was nice. The steaks were perfectly cooked and seasoned, as always.

The waitress was terrific and very accommodating. I had a wonderful time with my husband for dinner.
Only complaint we have is the 2 managers completely ignored us, but went to only the tables that were drinking. How sad is that! We can’t drink for medical reasons but we did spend a nice amount of money.
At least our waitress made up for their rudeness and kept wishing me a Happy Birthday

We made the reservation just 20 minutes before showing up and asked for a quiet corner booth large enough for two of us to work on our PC's over dinner. We were perfectly accommodated without having to remind anyone. The steak and horseradish garlic mashed potatoes were superb as was the french onion soup, the mixed greens salad and the key lime pie. Service started off a little to quickly for our taste, but the wait staff quickly adjusted. Great experience!

As always, Sullivan’s lived up to our previous visits. My only criticism is a small one; that the entree took a long time to get to us after appetizers when there were only four seated tables at that point. One was a party of about 10, but they were on dessert at that point. Otherwise, everything was very enjoyable.

The food was quite as expected, Excellent! Prepared the way I ordered it, medium rare and tasty. Having the Wagyu bone in strip, which was pricy but needing to try, I must admit that I was a bit disappointed. It was no better than the house strip steak, which is to say excellent, but not worth the price tag, at least to me. The assortment of oysters was perfect for the connoisseur and clean, devoid of all sediment and shell fragments. Sides were likewise well prepared and tasty and juicy, especially the mushrooms. The baked potatoes are incredible, both in size and preparation, with a crispy crust and salty. You may want to consider sharing one, since they are huge but well worth it. The deserts were delicious, but I would prefer more options. Our waitress, Sarah was Perfect! The right combination of professional server, efficient and personal interaction with our family at dinner. She did not hover and yet we never had to look for her when we needed anything or had a question, she is the consummate professional food service employee. Overall, a Wonderful Dining Experience and an excellent place for the family get together.

We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary on October 18th at Sullivan’s. Lindsay, our waitress, was awesome and provided excellent service. While a couple dining next to us was formally acknowledged by the Manager, I left wondering why he did not stop by our table to inquire about our evening. I heard him ask the couple if they enjoyed their meal and if there was anything they needed. Was it because we were the only African American family dining that evening in the restaurant......I can’t help but wonder why we had so many stares at us as we entered and left the restaurant.....we actually reside in an affluent predominantly white community about 10 minutes from the restaurant.....as my 15 year old daughter acknowledged, it’s 2017, not 1960!

Overall we had a very nice evening celebrating my parents both turning 70. Our server was excellent and was very attentive. This was my fathers first time at Sullivans and he enjoyed it very much.He loved the bone in dry aged ribeye ...My wife and I frequent both the bar side as well as the main dining room...I was quite relieved the steaks were proper thickness this time. About a month ago my wife and I were in and my medium rare ribeye was paper thin and grey through-out. It tasted fine and I'm not one to send food back unless something is in-edible. Obviously it wasn't that big of a deal, however I was disappointed because I so look forward to amazing steaks and sea bass. Just a little feedback.

Thanks,

Mike

I was the only one that had crab and was ill for the next day...so not extremely happy about that. The service was great but overall experience wasn't up to my previous expectations.
