We randomly picked Sullivan's one afternoon for lunch. It was early so the service was okay. There was only one waiter/bartender and one cook so I imagine the wait could get long if there had been more than a few customers. My husband and I both had the tomato basil soup and the small salad with added grilled chicken. The... More

We went to F.W. Sullivan's and had such a great time that we return about five days later. This is a really cool old-fashioned bar in an area called “The Fan” and there happy hour food and drinks are off the hook. They pour a real drink, and have fantastic appetizers. The service was excellent, the crowd was a cool... More

The service at this place is absolutely abysmal. I have repeatedly given this place (the Haxall location) additional chances, and have continuously been disappointed. The service is so bad, it's almost contemptuous. I have waited forever for my food to come, I have had waiters dump plates off on our table and run away without returning (while I had to... More

Food isn't bad.. The place is in a good location and the restaurant itself has good seating inside or out. The servers here are questionable... One young blonde girl I've had was really attentive. Others seem half drunk.

F.W. Sullivan's new location on the canal in downtown Richmond opened about three months ago. I recently met two partners there for lunch. We were promptly seated and our drink orders taken. Shortly thereafter our lunch orders were taken, two club sandwiches and a tuna melt. FORTY minutes later the sandwiches arrived. The tuna melt was OK but the club... More

I always look forward to trying a new spot for my birthday dinner with family. I chose Sullivan's based on their extensive online menu, which I imagine most folks do these days. Upon arrival I was extremely disappointed to find out that the real menu is nothing like it reads online with FAR fewer choices than I was expecting. I'm... More

I was missing walking to the pub and enjoying the ales from england... fortunately the fan area in Richmond has those kind of pubs where u get the feel.... Sullivan's was my spot in Richmond for the very short tenure of mine... I loved the ales and the food too. The crab dip was one of the best I have... More

My friends ad i went here for drinks and lunch after the 10k. Servers took 20 minutes to take our drink orders. Once taken, they were extremely rude. Our food took n hour and 45 minutes to come out...we forgot we ordered food...terrible pace, staff and service. People need to be fired here.

What a horrible resturant with horrible service! The people that work there would rather entertain their their friends than take care of locals that thrive the business. I recommend NEVER GOING!

Sullivan's has such a friendly waitstaff that is willing to explain their dishes, accommodate any special needs and serve up some delicious food. A favorite of mine is Shrimp and Grits. The macaroni and cheese is homemade and is fantastic. This is a relaxed bar type setting wtih booths and tables for dinner. Great neighborhood establishment. I guarantee you won't... More
