We had a nice dinner for two at Sullivans right after New Years. It is your prototypical steakhouse complete with dim lighting, a big wine list and big prices to match. My tenderloin was cooked well and tasted great, service was efficient if a bit robotic, but all in all there are better steakhouses in Tucson.

I love Sullivan's and always make it a priority to have dinner there when visiting the area. We recently took my 91 year old father there for his birthday. The staff made him feel so very special and he thinks it is the best place to dine when celebrating anything, he even has his favorite table. The food is delicious.... More

The food is great, particularly the New York strip steak. The oysters on the shell are great starters. The wine list is extensive and varied. Service is excellent. The servers are always on the watch for your needs and always very friendly. My wife and I enjoy it frequently for a romantic evening, although the restaurant is somewhat noisy when... More

The steak eaters in my group were very impressed with the quality of the steaks. I had bacon-wrapped scallops, which were cooked perfectly and served in a delicious sauce. The meal was on the expensive side for Tucson, so we will probably not go there very often.

I would probably say this is the second best steak house in Tucson. Good staff and interesting atmosphere. I cant speak about their happy hour, but dinner will be pricey. For appetizers, the shrimp and oysters are fantasic, but the crab claws are chilled so if you are not a fan of that then be warned. Steaks were quite good... More

I don't usually go out every week to what I'd call a fancy restaurant but I have every now and then so I'll base my review on those times. First the staff was very friendly and helpful but not overly so as to get in the way. We had reservations (a group of about 10) so there wasn't any wait,... More

Had the steak salad which was very good. We had the seafood sampler appetizer and it was good as well. We did not care for the crab claws on the sampler but everything else was very good. Fantastic bananas foster bread pudding dessert. The steaks were prepared correctly. We enjoyed most of our dishes. Fairly expensive but the sides are... More

Took our son and his 3 roommates for a good meal. A little pricey but everyone cleaned their plates. I would return.

Our golf group ( same foursome for 23 straight years), returned for a week of golf in Tucson. This was the 3rd visit to Sullivan's over the years. Food was excellent, service was excellent, could not ask for a better dinner. The Sure Thing menu choice ($42, three courses - appetizer, salad, and steak/fish) is a great value. Worth the... More

We arrived in Tucson late and my son (a student) was wanting a steak. It was a Thursday night and we were worried everything would be closed. Sullivan's was open until 11 pm. We arrived at 10 and had a very enjoyable meal. Steak was perfectly cooked. Waiter (can't remember his name but he was from Concord, CA) was very... More
