Sullivan's will be a return trip when we are in the Charleston area. We decided to leave the downtown Charleston and is just a short drive across the bridge to Isle of Palms to have dinner… A very relaxing "home" feel by the service and atmosphere itself. Nothing real fancy but very friendly. Food selection was very good and tasty.

Did you ever order seafood and season it with tartar sauce, shrimp cocktail sause or catsup? Well . . . forget all the sauces when you eat at Sullivan's Restaurant. Their seafood is so well prepared that you will want to savor that seafood flavor without any sauce at all. I have dined in a lot of places, but can... More

Visiting the Isle of Palm, we asked our host where we might find some good seafood. They recommended Sullivan's as "a good place to eat that was reasonably priced." We decided to try it on our first night. We were not disappointed. Were we live it is VERY hard to find good, seafood. So, we plan on getting our fill... More

I have been to this restaurant twice now while traveling for work, and both times were very good. It is a small local place with a old fashion family feel to it. Definitely home cookin. Great fish and seafood dishes. Both visits, I got the Fort Moultrie Steamer. Which comes with hot crab legs, lots of shrimp (peel on), 2... More

Fabulous shrimp and grits, wonderful service and easy in/out. Long lines everywhere else, so a 5 minute wait and we were sat and served. Really good hush pupies, too. My husband had the scallops which were perfectly cooked. Definitely go there!

This food is decadent, scrumptious, and outstanding. Our table had a ridiculous amount of trouble deciding, but ultimate went with crab cakes, seven-layer pasta, seafood casserole, and crab legs. No one had a bad meal. Actually, everyone had a spectacular meal. Our only regret was not having more room to try even more entrees and desserts. Service was speedy and... More

After spending several days in the Charleston area, my wife remembered Sullivan's Island from the days of her youth. We took a wild hair notion to drive out, she remembered there being some great restaurants in the area; however, she couldn't place names of the establishments. Sullivan's seemed like a great place because of seafood, so we pulled in. Upon... More

Been eating here for years when visiting the Charleston area. After touring the historic district, we always drive over the Cooper River out to Sullivan's Island specifically to eat at Sullivan's. They never disappoint. Walked in on a Friday evening and was seated immediately (the crowd had thickened immensely by the time we left, but people were being seated quickly).... More
