Sullivan's is our go to restaurant for special occasions for either personal or business. We have celebrated intimate occasions such as our anniversary and we have taken a group of 20 from our company and had the same quality food each and every time. The food is always amazing!

Being fairly new to the area, I asked around about a place to take my wife for our anniversary, as did she. Several places were mentioned, but we decided on Sullivan's. Most people we talked to said that it was expensive and they weren't lying. That being said, it was one of the best experiences I've had in a restaurant.... More

Wow. I have not been this impressed with a steakhouse like this for a long time. Steaks were amazing. I recommend the three button filet plate, each with a special topping. Absolutely incredible. Worth the trip. Service - 5 stars Food - 5 stars Ambience - 4 stars Price - $$$$

We have eaten here many times over the years. The experiences overall have been excellent to fair with the most recent being the worst for the food. The first bone in rib eye was full of gristle and too tough to cut with a steak knife. It also had way too much seasoning! All you could taste was salt. The... More

This was my first trip to Sullivan's and it was for my birthday dinner with my husband. We both chose the prix fixe menu. I got the cheesesteak eggrolls (SO DELICIOUS), shrimp and lobster bisque (one of the best I've ever had) and 6oz filet mignon (melt in your mouth good). He got the roasted garlic meatballs, salad and a... More

We were in town for business and walked in without a reservation (early Saturday night). We asked to be seated in the bar. Comfy chairs. Waitress was so attentive - I wish I had gotten her name to pass it on to management. Drinks (cocktails) were excellent. Lobster Bisque, Baked Potato, Creamed Spinach and Fillet Mignons were all worth the... More

Eight of us had dinner at Sullivan's to celebrate my mom's 64th birthday last night. I must say I was thoroughly disappointed. Its been a long time since I've eaten at Sullivan's and last night was a reminder of why. We had a reservation so our table was ready upon our arrival. As we were escorted into the main dining...

The food is so flavorful and comes out just as requested. The wait staff definitely cater to your needs which is refreshing! I took my husband there one... More

I took my husband here for his birthday and honestly, for a place that costs this much, I expected so much more. Our food was ok. We both ordered steak and both came out overdone. When you're paying >$40 for just the steak, it should be perfect. All the sides are a la carte, but they were good. The salads... More

Ate here with my family. My son and I each had a ribeye; mine was Oscar style. As good as we've had anywhere. My wife had a filet that was very good. My daughter had salmon which was also excellent. The girls split a calamari appetizer that was great. I had lobster bisque which was tasty but a little thin.... More
