“Great Calabash style seafood.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

The dining choices are limited on Sullivan island and it was nice that we lucked out with Sullivan's. We arrived just between the time many folks were leaving (around 6:45pm) and were able to get a table outside. Service was good and the hush puppy appetizers were excellent. I ordered the Captain's platter which included two sides and it was plentiful to the point I could not finish it all. Nice and casual and focused on service and good food.

“Great tasting seafood”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

What a nice surprise to find a family owned restaurant with such good food. The crab stuffed flounder was delicate and creamy and loaded with crab. Entree's come with two sides. I tried the squash casserole and fried okra. All sides are home cooked and seasoned just right. There are big tables that can accommodate a large group and the waiters are vey friendly. I may have to go back so I can try the Captain's seafood platter which had melt in your mouth fried oysters.

“Good Seafood Menu”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We visited with a group from Road Scholar and were very pleased with our meals at Sullivan's. My wife had very good broiled shrimp and I had a very well prepared seafood casserole with shrimp and scallops. Enjoyed our visit.

“Awesome little hole in the wall”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

DH & I had lunch here recently and it was great! It is a little further down the street than the cluster of other eateries. This Northern girl was able to get her southern food fix by having the shrimp and grits, butter beans and collard greens, all of which were very good. DH had the flounder po boy and found the fish to be very white and flaky. The staff is very friendly and the food is made with very fresh ingredients. If you are anywhere in the Charleston or Isle of Palm area, make a trip to Sullivan's. And they have a really cool t-shirt with the Palmetto palm and the crescent moon.

“A great local favorite!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

When we travel, we always look for places off the beaten path and that true locals eat at. This place did not let us down. Locally owned for 25 years- staff was pleasant, and eager to take care of our needs. I had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp that came with 2 sides and my husband got the 7 layer seafood which was shrimp, bay scallops (smaller and sweeter than the larger ones) and crab meat - tossed in a cream sauce, topped with bacon and cheese and the baked off to melt the cheese. That also came with 2 sides. Almost too much for a big man to eat (which he did not).
