Good steak, good happy hour.

Steaks cooked to please. Generous sides. Steak priced in forty dollar range. Sides arount ten dollars. Drinks are strong. Happy hour menu items around seven dollars. Not a top shelf but food is good, amicable service.

We enjoyed 3 consistently great meals here over the course of a month. The food, service and wine were very good. We'll be back next year !

Sullivan's is what I always think a steakhouse should be: Dark leather booths, white linen table cloths, strong drinks, and delicious steaks. The bottom line is, Sullivan's is a neighborhood gem, and feel fortunate if you can get a weekend reservation during the season. In addition to a simple, but diverse menu, the happy-hour is famous through the Desert Valley.... More

I had a coupon, so had to use it. The SureThing menu was well worth it, Food was delicious and we left satisfied and stuffed. A perfect place for late night dining. I went with a friend that lives in Palm Springs, and Sullivan's was a new experience for them. They enjoyed and said they would return and recommend. That's... More

All they wanted to do was to serve us and use the table for someone else. So disappointing when you go out for a nice meal.

Had dinner at Sullivan's last night. Most of our group of 6 went with the Sure Thing $42 menu. Everything tasted great and the service was excellent. I would not say this is a top shelf steakhouse but it was really, very good. Everyone enjoyed themselves and for a steakhouse, the bill was surprisingly reasonable. Definitely recommend it and would... More

Sullivans is as good as it gets in the desert. Palm Desert has some of the best restuarants anywhere and Suulivans stands out on top.

Been here many times. We sat in the bar and had the salmon that was excellent. Listened to great live music from two guys who played two hours without a break. We love this place for the food, atmosphere, and music. Service was great too!

Just wanted a drink and listen to the music. Had a 3 piece band and they were exceptional! We had already eaten but the waitress was very cordial. Would definitely go again.

Wonderful service, lots of action, great food and location. We were first seated by the kitchen and were kindly moved to a lovely table. Warm fresh baguettes start the meal. Could have eaten them all night. The wedge salad was so fresh and the Sea Bass was the most delicious ever!
