Visited Sullivan's on July 19th. Had a family of 5 and the manager allowed us to squeeze into a table and add a chair. Otherwise we would have waited quite awhile. Food and service were excellent. Bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp is highly recommended. Great desserts too!

Our visit to Sullivan's Island on a very hot day was enhanced by a lovely meal and great service. It is a very popular and busy restaurant and you may have to wait but there are umbrellas, outdoor fans and great ice tea. The menu have a reasonable and tasty selection with a few Southern favorites. Don't think you can... More

Family run business, with amazing food with very generous portions. The service was as good as you could possibly hope for. We felt and were treated like family. We could not help but notice all of the kids working during the summer that were very clean cut, nicely dresssed and were constantly busy and never slacking off. That is rare... More

My family of four ate at Sullivan's and although a sharing charge is posted on the menu we were still surprised because they did not split our food in the back. Portions were fine for sharing as we are little people. The scallops were wonderful, but we did not like the risotto. The tomatoes or peppers in it were overpowering.... More

Dinner here while on vacation at IOP. We typically make a point to eat here if we are in the Charleston area. Went on a Wednesday night right at the start of prime dinner time (6ish) and no wait. Food is always delish!

I've eaten at most of Charleston's seafood places, and this is by far my favorite. Good fresh seafood!! Shem creeks is good as well, (except for the incredibly overpriced unairconditioned rip off called the "Wreck"the I he ) but if your looking for good food this is your place. In fact the police were eating there tonight... Can't get much... More

I've been to Sullivan's twice with family. First, I like the atmosphere...casual, wood floors, "old" beachy, really good service, friendly. Four 4 adults (2 appetizers, 4 entrees (came with 2 sides), waters to drink) the tab with tip was $120. The food was OK. Appetizers were cold crab dip which was OK; hushpuppies (which do not come with entrees) were... More

This is a place "where the locals eat" and used to be the best kept secret. It has been a family vacation tradition since I was a teenager (20+ years). They serve fresh, delicious seafood and offer several great kid-friendly options. Servings are hearty so get your slice of key lime pie to go. It's a super casual, authentic dining... More
