Do Not Miss this Restaurant

We went to Sullivan's twice in two days while we were in Charleston for a funeral. The first evening we arrived just before they closed their seating. They were so gracious and gave us all the time we needed. The following day we only had a short time before we had to get to the airport and they... read more

Best seafood in South Carolina! This place is crowded for a reason. Been here many times and excellent each time. Go early to reserve your table.

Have gone to this restaurant for many many years... great place, great food and a great staff!! Can get a little loud at times and for elderly folks can be an issue, but still not a reason to stay away.

Best she-crab soup on the island. A family recipe that has been passed down. We went in for a cold drink, but had to try the soup. You won't be sorry.

We ate at Sullivan's on our recent trip to Charleston. We had 7 people in our party so I was expecting a lengthy wait. I was pleasantly surprised when in about 20 minutes we had our table. The interior is perfectly done for a beach town eatery, Our server Debbie was beyond wonderful. Make sure to ask for her if... More

This is a great find! Good food and a great staff. The food is good portions and good variety. Entrees are priced fair for a vacation town. Dessert is delish, but expensive ($8. for the cookie cake!). There is not a "full bar" but they have a good wine list and beer supply. We went in a Monday evening (7:30ish)... More

We stopped by here on a Sunday during brunch hours. While they were already out of a few options (like grouper and crab) we had plenty of options. Daughter had a fantastic stuffed flounder, and the creamy grits I had as a side to my fried oysters were fantastic. Don't miss the amazing coconut cake or banana pudding. Both tasted... More

Absolutely awesome meal at a great price. The staff was superb! My wife and I loved the quaint atmosphere and the family atmosphere. My wife ordered crab legs that were seasoned to perfection. I ordered broiled seafood that was mouth watering. We will return on our next trip to Charleston!

Kudos to this family venture. Well set up, quaint and great service. Great ambiance to have a great meal with the family including little ones. The star are the old time dishes. Vast, delicious, generous portions at prices you won't regret later. The stuffed flounder with crab cake was to die for. The star of the show was the crab.... More
