My wife and I have visited this restaurant on four other occasions and found it to be OK. This past Saturday it felt like the chain restaurant that it is. Loud, slow service, cold previously prepared salads. We both did enjoy our steak however once another table was seated our server forgot about us.

My wife and I went to Sullivan’s after seeing a play in Philadelphia. We like their steaks and wine list. Katie our waitress was excellent and made our experience more enjoyable.

In addition, it is about 20 minutes from where we live.

Man, Sullivan’s is a conundrum. So close to being so good, but with a few persistent issues that always detract. Drinks seem like they will be amazing Until you realize they are actually quite small. The fish which was described as having a Cajun seasoning was actually served sushi style. Because I thought it was a big piece of tuna with Cajun flair i ordered it medium well, nonetheless it was served medium rare and with an accompanying ginger and wasabi sauce. There is a big difference between Cajun style tuna steak, and thin sliced very rare sushi style tuna, and it’s kind of important to know the difference. I even asked of the server for her recommendation for a side, given that the description said Cajun. She recommended the broccoli, it comes with a small hollandaise sauce which I thought would go very nicely with my Cajun style tuna. However very barely steamed broccoli with hollandaise does not go at all with ginger and wasabi.

In any case it was not my first trip there… This was just another example of how Sullivans is always ever so slightly off. At those prices you would expect the service to be a little bit better.

We were celebrating a birthday for this visit, the waiter was not very attentive, our drinks sat empty for a long time before we finally got his attention for refill. The waiter also charged us for a free dessert we're suppose to get for the occasion.

Food quality is consistent and excellent. Service is very friendly with good attention to detail. We really enjoyed the steak sandwich egg rolls, which are a very unique appetizer. Although pricey, this is a very good special occasion restaurant!

I come two or three times a year to Sullivan's in Wilmington. The service was excellent - our server was very sharp and attentive. It is the first time that the food was not up to your usual standards - My steak was not as flavorful as it usually is and my side didn't taste the same - it was a bit off. What upset me the most is while we had reservations placed well in advance, we had a 25 minute wait on a Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. Very disappointing.

Sullivans is always fantastic. The food is always great, hot and well presented. The atmosphere is a little loud, but it's a steakhouse so you should expect it. The GM, Bill, is awesome and always accommodating.

we have dined at this Sullivans & another location many times & have always enjoyed it. Not this time, service was poor as we felt our server was over extended by the # of tables she was responsible for. Our food was not served timely or at a good temperature & my expensive lobster tail was without much taste & may have been frozen too long. We were celebrating a birthday & they did recognize that which was very nice of them.

Food and service were excellent! My friend ordered a martini that was served in a child size glass. This was the second time we were there. We only went again because my friend had a gift certificate. Last time we went I had two cosmopolitans. Both lacked alcohol. When you buy a steak for $50.00 and are served a crappy drink it takes away from the entire experience. We will not return.

Always a great meal at Sullivan's. This was our first time at this particular location having dined more frequently at the Baltimore location. The meal was excellent. The service was exceptional. We were there to celebrate a birthday. Sullivan's provided a free desert for the occasion. We are extremely happy we picked this place to celebrate. We will definitely be back.

I've been to MANY steakhouses in North America, and I keep coming back to Sullivan's for the consistency, quality and service. Filet is ALWAYS perfect.. and I mean perfect. Sides are generous portions and top notch. Win list is large -- you do want to be careful as they will sometimes upsell you to a more expensive bottle..if you know a thing or two about wines and you're not a wine-snob, the less expensive options will be a great experience.

Despite it being New Year's Eve, our dinner was excellent. With a fixed price menu and a large crowd, one would think there would be some slipups, but no! We were seated fairly promptly with our reservation. Our waitress Michelle was outstanding, the food was served timely and hot, cooked just right, the drinks were well made, and the overall experience was great! Thank you Sullivans!

First let me say our food was great . The service not so much . To be brief, the server had each course coming out one on top of the other before we were even finished eating the one before . On a Friday evening I don’t want to be rushed out of a restaurant . Also she didn’t ask us about sides or salads and we forgot to order them and had to track her down to do it . On a $400 bill I think you should come away feeling good about it.

The food overall was very disappointing. I ordered oysters for an appetizer and they were dry and very small. They never should have served them. My steak was extremely over priced and was a tough grisly cut which was recommended by our waitress. Overall disappointing meal and I’ll never return.

We love going to Sullivan’s because we know that our food wil always be cooked to perfection. We are always made to feel special there and we appreciate the enthusiasm of the waitstaff. The cheesesteak roll appetizer was fantastic, the ribeye was cooked to perfection and all of the sides (asparagus, mac n cheese, scalloped potatoes) were yummy. The other 3 people in our group had filet mignon and everyone was very happy with their meal. Dessert was Creme brûlée, chocolate bomb and cheesecake — another home run with the desserts. We only wish there was a Sullivan’s closer to us instead of a 50 minute drive ....but it is well worth it.

I have frequented this restaurant many times. I had my first bad meal there on Christmas Eve. We had a party of four and all meals were great except mine. Steak arrived and needed to be cooked more. It came back charred and I thought it was fine but it wasn’t. The manager told me he was going to comp but he didn’t because I didn’t insist; however, he knew it was over cooked. I eat out often so I am not one to overreact. My guest enjoyed their meal and all was well. I will visit restaurant again but am hoping for a much better experience next time.
