We went on a Saturday night with a large group, and the owner went out of her way to accommodate us. The food was outstanding, I had the Captain's Platter which was fried seafood at its best. Thank you for a great evening, and I will be back the next time I'm in Charleston!

Since having a house on the next island to Sullivan's Island, Sullivan's Restaurant is one of our personal favorites. It is locally owned and staffed, has very good food and is quiet and friendly. Other restaurants on this small island are good, but always packed and usually noisy. Sullivan's is a quieter retreat a few blocks from the main activity.... More

My wife and I had the great fortune of not being able to get a reservation downtown Charleston on Valentines night. So we started looking outward. We drove out to Sullivan's. I come to Charleston at least five times a year and eat at all the high end places downtown, let me tell you Hymans, AW Shucks, Charleston Crab House... More

My sister and niece, who live on Daniel Island, decided to take us to Sullivan's for dinner on the 12th of February. My husband just received a heart transplant on May 6th and this was one of our first trips. My sister wanted to make it special. My mother just had back surgery so we went to her rehab to... More

Shrimp and grits is a classic low country favorite preferred by our son. Never go to a place that features instant grits over the slow cook variety. In the south, the slower the better. Oysters and flounder are both good. Sandwiched beside a little grocery coop (good place for beach picnic fare) and a women's shop, Sullivan's is a destination... More

My family and I dined at Sullivan's last night, and loved it. The food was delicious, but mostly excellent because of the extraordinary level of service. Scott, our server was energetic, knowledgeable and attentive. There was a large party in the restaurant, a 70th birthday, and while we placed orders we noticed the party was as well, but everything still... More
