The line is a good sign the food is worth it. And the line moves at a quick pace. The food is always good and the location can't be beat. Take a walk and enjoy lunch at a classic. You won't be disappointed

There is something about the smell of salty ocean air that begs for fried food, and in this category, Sullivan's does not disappoint. I had been hearing about this place for awhile from "old-timahs" we know and finally got around to actually trying it. The place was bustling even on a weekday afternoon in early spring. The ordering procedures are... More

This restaurant is a little out of the way, but is worth the trip. We ordered the fried clams and lobster roll. Both were delicious!!

"Sully's" is the iconic Castle Island eatery, serving Fried Seafood, Grilled food, Fries, and soft ice cream. The lobster rolls are terrific, and still a bargain despite a slight price increase. Grab an available table, bench, or picnic on the grass. With views of Boston Harbor, Logan Airport, and beyond, you can't beat it. Walk off your lunch with a... More

Even in February. OK, it was 70 degrees out but me and about 10,000 friends all decided it felt like summer and hit Castle Island this weekend, and it seems half of them were in line at Sully's. Why? Because it's consistently good and very affordable. And because it feels like summer no matter what.

Just love stopping there after a walk around Castle Island. Lobster rolls are always fresh and the fish and chips are delicious! The grandkids love eating the chicken nuggets or hot dogs by the waterfront...

This is an old reliable place to eat on Castle Island. It's been there forever. Get an old fashioned hot dog, or ice cream cone. The clam strips are excellent. It's to go food, but there are plenty of places to sit right outside. Or, sit on a bench around the fort. You won't be disappointed. The staff is friendly... More

One of the best kept secrets from outsiders - Sullivan's at Castle Island in South Boston. The takeout style restaurant sits next to Fort Independence on Castle Island. The service is quick, the food is typically local sea food and family friendly. If you want authentic food without the trappings - this is it. The views and the people watching... More

Picnic table outside, no inside eating. Take the dog and enjoy the weather. Then visit Fort Independence!
