We enjoyed a delicious meal here on our last night of spring break. The staff was kind, gracious, and accommodating. The food was excellent and authentic.

Just down the street from Sullivan Island's "downtown--a small, smelly, raucous block filled with eateries packed with people looking at each other--is Sullivan's, an intimate neighborhood place serving excellent seafood at reasonable prices. I had the fried, whole flounder. "You can eat the skin, but not the bones," our server said. I could have figured it out on my own.... More

We found this place on a referral several years ago and it is our favorite place to get great seafood. The portions are generous, the prices are reasonable, and the food is always prepared very well. We always stop here when in the Charleston area and we have never been disappointed with our meals or the service.

My husband and I have eaten at Sullivan's over 2 dozens times in the last 10 years. Always fresh and very fast for such a small cozy restaurant. Shrimp will melt in your mouth! So fresh you think they run down the street and pull it straight from the ocean as you order. Do they?! We've been know to drive... More

Went for Sunday brunch - most amazing Seafood Casserole I've ever had. And at only $11, so well priced. I've had the same dish at other restaurants for 30+ that did not taste as rich. On Sunday, dessert comes with the meal - get the Banana Pudding…best I've ever had. We tried to go back to this restaurant a second... More

We were staying in Isle of Palms but decided to go to Sullivan's on Saturday for dinner and it was well worth it. The she-crab soup was very good. I had the Seafood casserole and my husband had fried oysters-both were wonderful. I wanted to have dessert after hearing them described, but we were just too full. Would visit again.

We went to Sullivan's Restaurant on Sullivan's Island for dinner on the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel. We were delighted with our meal and the service. I am in search of the world's best shrimp and grits, so if a restaurant offers the dish, that's what I ask for. Sullivan's is not THE best, but it's right... More

We just had a great meal at this local seafood place. Our second time here and we loved every bite. I had a grilled swordfish with a spinach pasta; collard greens for my side. My dining mate had the fried shrimp and oysters with butter beans for her side. Wow! What a meal. The vegetables were so tasty. Best shrimp... More

This is our Go-to for great seafood when visiting Mt.P and Chas, SC!! It's a cute/family style rest...not the high-end downtown est. But, it never disappoints for fresh, delicious seafood platters. Grilled, broiled, fried...u can't go wrong. Love this place!!

While Charleston has great restaurants it is worth the trip over the bridges to Sullivan's for good food and great island atmosphere.
