It's Consistent, If Nothing Else

I'm not a big fan of chain steakhouses, but there are times when it's the right thing to do to meet the wishes of your guests. As the big time broilers go, Sullivan's meets all expectations. In Raleigh, it's claim to fame is a very hopping bar, going into the late hours packed with North... read more

I've eaten at Sullivan's in Chicago many times and every meal was awesome. We moved to the Raleigh are less than a year ago and decided to try the Sullivans brunch this Mother's Day. It was an absolute disaster starting with an extraordinarily awkward and flighty waitress. The salads and first course was ok but the crab cake eggs Benedict... More

I thought that it would be a treat to take my wife to Sullivan's. It was not. Apparently the kitchen and the staff could not handle the crowd. My wife ordered the fillet, it arrived cold an raw. We had to send it back. My prime rib was cold; cutting it was like cutting leather with a feather. The combination... More

We selected this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend. From the minute we were seated till we left our experience was exemplary. Fabulous service, attentive wait staff and impeccable food. Although pricy, I will say you get what you pay for. We started with a calamari appetizer which was tender, juicy and do flavorful. The steaks proved to be... More

Ate there last night. Had a great server named Mackenzie, she was awesome! (I love great service and when spending good money on a meal, it should be the norm). I asked for my 8oz steak to be medium, charred, the way I like it. It was done perfectly, thanks chef! Had the stone claw crabs and calamari to start.... More

My title is a play on words as Sullivan's is named for the great bare knuckle boxer...the reality is their service is excellent and it shows. I had ordered some soup that I simply didn't like...it was probably made fine but they let us get something else, after a visit from the manager, who's style was also commendable. This is... More

Extensive menu of steaks seafood and lobster with delicious appetizers and side dishes generous enough to share. Lenka our server was outstanding in explaining the evening specials and various...
