Went to Sully's while checking out the best wings in Middletown. Sully's wings came in dead last. This is a great place to go if you just want a good old fashioned bar atmosphere and cold beer.

My husband and I frequently stop here for drinks for and a bite. It is technically a tavern, so no one under 21 is permitted. Service is always excellent, but they do have a dress code for men. Just FYI Drink: Excellent variety of beer, but they do not serve any traditional domestic beers, like Miller lite. Food: Everything I've... More

Saw the sign that said "Seafood & Irish Pub" and thought it was a seafood restaurant, but it turned out that the seafood was a fish market next door to a pub. So I went into the pub at noon on Thursday and found it really was a bar with tables and TV's playing sports. Tried the Reuben which turned... More

We had the Irish stew and ham and cabbage There was nothing on the plate but 2 leaves of cabbage 2 small thin slices of ham and the stew was maybe 4 oz for over $10.00 each. The pictures of food they show on the website is not there's must have come from a magazine.

Strictly a Pub, no particular ambience, suggesting otherwise. Cold beer, best tuna bites in the local area. Service has always been attentive.

We had dinner last evening here--we actually were headed elsewhere and stopped here as a last-minute change in plans. We shared the crab & asparagus risotto, which was perfectly cooked and delicious. We each had the pub burger, which tasted great, with perfectly cooked fries, which was accompanied by a great tasting cole slaw. At the waitress's recommendation, we tried... More

We were not disappointed, The lollipop lamb chops appetizer was different than any I've had before and rank as one of the best ever. My... More

I loved visiting this classic Irish Pub. It is located right in town and is very quaint. The outside seating is very nice for a cooler summer evening. The food is delicious. I highly recommend trying the Crabby Fries. They get their seafood fresh from the market next door.

I straight-up love Sully's. It's an old-school Irish Pub right in the heart of Middletown. The prices are fair, the food is quite good, and the atmosphere can't be beat. I love sitting outside on their large patio area and just watching the activity on Main Street.
