Sullivan’s has lost its luster. The service is robotic, the drinks are overpriced and weak and the food was mediocre at best. It’s ashamed. We used to go once a month but will look elsewhere now.

Service was poor at best and they were out of many items. Not what you would expect from a Sullivan's Steak House.

The quality and service at this restaurant has dropped markedly from previous visits. Waitress was absent throughout most of the dinner. Food was good, but way over priced when considering lack of service. My wife's steak was overdone as well. Price was not an issue in the past when the restaurant was top notch. I can confidently say that I will not be dining at this restaurant in the future.

Food and service were fine. However, it was so dark we could barely read the menu. My
son had to use the flashlight on his phone. Print on menus was light and small.

Steak (at a steak house) was so tough that it couldn’t be eaten. Sent it back and didn’t reorder. They were apologetic and didn’t charge, but the meat and over cooking was inexcusable. Olivia was a great server and very sweet.

Server was OK. My husband’s filet was rare he ordered medium rare. It took a long time before our server came back to ask us how our meal was so we could tell him to send the filet back to cook a little longer. I was almost finished my dinner by the time my husband was able to get his steak. Server would not write down what we ordered and he had to come back and ask a second time. This happened twice.

Food was mediocre. Caesar salad was terrible; wedge salad had way too much dressing. Salmon had bones. Above all, service was terrible. Entrees were brought to table with salad plates still in front of us. We had to move salad dishes just to make room for entree plate. No refills on water unless asked and even then, it was delayed!

Why is it on nights you aren't busy service is much slower than on busy nights? We had appetizers, mains, and deserts. We were there from 5:30 to 8:00. We asked to have wine served with main, but only got it after we finished eating. Much too long to sit waiting for service!
We like Sullivan's but won't come again when we are crushed for time!

Thank you for a wonderful experience for my brother and sister in law’s 25th wedding anniversary! They said dinner and service was great, there was a note wishing them a happy anniversary and they had a free dessert too. They thanked us a million times for the reservation and gift card.

We can’t wait to go for our 10 year anniversary next month! Sullivan’s you never disappoint!

The hostesses were very friendly, atmosphere is more intimate but you can still go with friends. The food was perfect. I had filet Oscar, no complaints. Also had the white cheddar bacon scalloped potatoes and they were great also. Mixed drinks were good as well! I would for sure recommend and go again! 5/5

Our experience tonight was wonderful. We haven’t been here since February 2020 due to the pandemic. We were hesitant to return due to some negative reviews. I am glad we went with our past experiences. Everything was on point. We started with drinks, the Knockout, the Passion Fruit Martini, Southern Comfort, and a Beer. The Martinis were yummy! Our appetizers were Cheesesteak egg rolls (which are the best anywhere), Wedge and Caesar Salads. All delicious and nice size portions. For entrees we had Filets, Ribeye, and Strip Streaks. All were cooked to the correct temperatures, nothing needed to be sent back. The mashed potatoes, bread, and cheesecake also were perfect. Our server Shea was very attentive and personable as were the other helpers. All staff wore masks, seating is done so that no tables are next to one another. You will feel very safe dining here. The noise level was noticeably less due to less people which, I must say was a positive. Counting down to our next dinner here!

4 of us went tonight to dinner last night. 2 of us showed up early and had a drink in the bar. Ordered a dirty martini and a manhattan. The martini showed up half full (no shaker with ice and extra) and warm. The manhattan came not as I ordered it. I ordered Angles Envy. Apparently they were out of it so made me a Bullet Manhattan without asking. Our guests came and we sat down. Service was good. We ordered 2 Knockout martini's and a Don Julio. The Knockouts came half full and they were out of Don Julio so they gave me Patron instead with out asking again. Just brought it to the table then 5 minutes later, after I had started drinking it, they said hey we were out of DJ so I made you Patron. We ordered a steak salad which was great. A tune which was great. A filet medium rare and a bone in rib eye medium rare. The filet came out raw and had to be sent back. The rib eye came medium at best. Everything not steak related, besides the cocktails, was great. The steaks were sub par. Very disappointed for Sullivan's. With Covid you would think they would be on top of their game. NOT. Very disappointed for a $450 meal.

Underwhelmed by the experience. This was one of my favorite restaurants at one time, but with ownership and management changes it is simply not the same experience. Plus, prices posted on certain items are not what is charged on your bill. I will not be returning...too many other good options available.

When someone goes to Sullivan’s they expect premium food preparation and service due to price charged. Everything should be perfect to provide a unique experience.
These are issues we had and overall changes we have noticed:
1. Table was not properly set (all utilizes were in the middle of the table instead of where people sit).
2. First Stella beer was not served in a Stella glass. Volume looked to be less than one beer.
3. Ribeye steak was butterflied and ended up being dry. Who butterflies a $45 steak?
4. Fish was undercooked.
5. One of the Sullivan’s knives was bent at the tip to 90 degrees. Doesn’t anyone check this?
6. What happened to the good looking female servers that Sullivan’s is known for?
7. Attention to detail and cleanliness not where it once was.
