Eat here and you will love it. Great service and amazing food. Mahi was fresh and flaky and all the sides were perfect. We will try and go back and sit outside. Amazing value for the $.

Enjoyed this restaurant while visiting Wild Dunes on Isle of Palms. This is a nice option to the high priced restaurants on the property. Good menu options and food is plentiful. Service was friendly and attentive.

We have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years when we visit Wild Dunes on IOP 2-3 times a year. They have the best fried seafood we have had down there, and it was outstanding Monday night when we ate at Sullivan's. The two favorites of my family are the fried Captain's seafood platter and the Seven Layer... More

I haven't been there in years because the food was in decline. Returned and I found the food at service ok. Great place for a family to dine food is fried down home. No worries on this visit

Been here several times and the last few times over the course of a couple of years have been mediocre at best. This time it was so good we had dinner and lunch the following day. Service was very nice, food cooked to order and fresh. Congratulations, keep up the good work.

Staying on Isle of Palms at Wild Dunes resort. Took a short drive to deliberately eat at this restaurant. Not disappointed. Many choices and excellent service. Enjoyed the shrimp, flounder, scallops, and salmon. Very relaxed atmosphere would defintely go back.

Looking for some place to have dinner outside of downtown Charleston and found Sullivan's online. It is a locally owned restaurant (I believe a brother and sister run it) and was very enjoyable. I had the seafood casserole, which contained shrimp, crab, and scallops in a cream sauce with bread crumbs on top. It was yummy although the first bite... More
