70 degrees in January so we headed to the beach for some fun. Sullivan's was able to seat us quickly even though the other restaurants on Middle Street already had long waits. They were super friendly and the food was great. I had been a while since I had been here and they did not disappoint! We sat outside and... More

We are the locals and love Sullivan's. Can't go wrong eating anything on the menu! Husband loves the fried shrimp with the generous amount you get and I love the the seafood casserole.

Off the beaten path, this quaint establishment is worth the hunt. The bar is so small that 3 people could not stand abreast, but you don't go there for drinks. While it was hard to turn down the ahi special, I had my heart set on the sauteed grouper, which lived up to expectations: ample serving and the typical flaky... More

We had 4 children, and 2 adults! This was a "friend" trip for my bff, our kids, and I last summer (2015). We had the best food here, staff was great!, and we were not rushed, nor did they "take too long'. The timing was just as perfect as the food! They were great with the worn-out kids who were...

Sullivan's is one of our few favorites for regular Southern and Seafood dining in the Charleston area. Casual down home atmosphere with good service, good food and unbelievable value. Wife favorite is pot roast meal with sides for about $9. Seafood just a little more. Sunday brunch treat is an added desert for free....cobblers are the best! Loyal customers...we were... More

This place is really kind of a hidden gem. The food is very good, and there is a LOT of it. You will get 4-6 more shrimp with a shrimp dinner here than at most places in the area. Very nice, laid back feel, friendly service. This is not gourmet dining, it is good, local fare at very reasonable prices.... More

We went to Sullivan's since we were in the mood for seafood . We started with the delicious hush puppies and a plate of shrimp. The seafood casserole was so good with lots of crab in the stuffing plus the shrimp and scallops. Service was prompt and very friendly. We will definitely return.

Enjoyed a business dinner at Sullivan's. From the appetizers to the dessert the dishes were well done especially the medium rare filet mignon!

This restaurant has a good selection of seafood and southern food. I had broiled flounder and butter beans which were delicious. Banana pudding for dessert which was the best I have ever had.

After taking care of our business in Mount Pleasant we decided to take a trip over to Sullivan's Island and hunt down a place for dinner. And what we hit upon was a very special place. Sullivan's restaurant has a congenial staff, friendly owner and simply charming authentic atmosphere. The food was perfect and many of their selections come right... More
