Overpriced Steakhouse

We love steak & all the fixings...but we were disappointed in our visit here! Steak was not neatly as good as Ditkas or even Eddie Merlots. Trust me...we don't mind paying a high price for quality. This was not the experience we had hoped for.

I was visiting family and Sullivan's was highly recommended as a true Chicago steakhouse experience. Reservations were made and there was no waiting for a table during a busy dinner hour. Between the three of us, we had two excellent cuts of beef, one very tender filet and a strip steak. We chose the bourbon peppercorn sauce for these cuts... More

We had a partial giftcard and some coupons to use and decided to indulge on lobster tail. Unfortunately, the meat was tough and not worthy of $59/tail, so we sent it back and opted out for a bone-in rib eye steak to split. It was, without a doubt, the BEST steak I have ever had in a restaurant. The crusty... More

So...Sullivan's redeemed itself to my family! Our first experience was not so great...but we tried again & it was over the top! Michael is a phenomenal waiter & we took his suggestions. The food was great, the service great & now is our favorite steak house!

At Sullivan's, the servers are what make the meal! They give helpful tips on everything from your choice of cocktail to entree-and pairing possibilities as well! The food is pricey, but outstanding. Smaller portions that a "hungry man" would expect of steak, but you won't walk away hungry (especially if you indulge in one of their amazing desserts). I am... More

Nothing to dislike! Great steak and salads. Good wine list and drinks. The service is commendable, too.

Besides their regular menu, Sullivan's does a very nice job for holiday meals. Went there for Mother's Day last year. However we usually go to their bar on Thursday's when they have lunch specials. Have the best burgers along with excellent service.

If you are looking for a traditional Chicago steak house experience and don't want to go to Chicago, Sullivan's in Naperville is the place to go. The food is excellent and the service is very nice. The last time we went, we had an issue with the steak which we were ok keeping it, but they gave us a replacement... More

We had gift cards for Sullivan's so for our 47th anniversary we decided to give this fine establishment a try for lunch. We were not disappointed. A special shout-out to our server, Hannah, she was attentive and interacted well with our table...fun! The food was excellent and this establishment takes customer service to a high level. The comped desert was... More

One of our favorites for dinner in Naperville. Sulllivan's is a lively place with a great bar and wonderful food. The bar is very quiet on the weekdays for lunch, and they have off night specials, The burgers are great. Weekends are packed. Even if you have a reservation you will wait, but it's worth it. We have been going... More
