No trip to Charleston is complete without at least 1 trip to Sullivan's Restaurant on Sullivan's Island. We have been dining there for over 25 years. Excellent food and service in a casual atmosphere. Well worth the drive if staying in downtown. Charleston. Look forward to dining again in October.

Not a fancy place but great laid back atmosphere and friendly staff. I highly reccomend you make the trip to Sullivan's Island and see for... More

Went to Sullivan's for dinner. Had the stuffed flounder w/crab and fiance had the combination platter. Both were excellent. The flounder was coated in a delicious creamy light cheese sauce that was very rich in taste and was cooked perfectly. Way to full for dessert. Will definitely eat here again.

We came here to explore Sullivan's Island with some friends and decided to stop in to Sullivan's Restaurant for lunch. We were seated right away and every one working here was very nice. I had the shrimp and grits and they were good, but not great. Overall everyone was pleased with their choices and we would come here again.

We look forward to eating at Sullivan's after church on Sunday when we're in the Charleston area and it is always a delight, but it hit a new high when I had the seafood frittata special yesterday! I love shrimp cooked any way it's prepared and those that topped this delicious egg creation were some of the tastiest I've ever... More

Had a great dinner here. Good food. Good service. More folksy and easier to get a reservation than at the uppity Obstinate Daughter a few doors away.

When we vacation at Isle of Palms we make a point of going to Sullivan's. My family loves this place. Staff are friendly, just be sure to get there early as this place is busy during the summer. They have lots of fried seafood, which is probably their most popular dish, but unfortunately I cannot eat a lot of fried... More

This is a solid beach-style restaurant. We always go there at least once per beach visit, and this year wanted to make it twice but learned that it closes between lunch and dinner. Anyway, we had the fried shrimp and fried scallops, and they really measured up to our expectations and wishes.
