“Good quick food, but didn't really like the clams”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I went here one afternoon for lunch with high expectations. I ordered lobster bisque, friend clams, and onion rings. The bisque was really good and the onion rings didn't disappoint either. The fried clams left something to be desired though. I like the atmosphere at Sullivan's, good authentic Boston feel and beautiful location.

“Great place for a quick bite with a nice view”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Ate lunch here yesterday with a group of AMC hikers. Great hot dogs with toasted buns, similar to the ones your would eat at the hot dog stands in Quebec. Lots of options for fried/baked seafood, hamburgers, etc. Didn't try the fries. Fun to sit outside and watch the planes land and take off. Reasonable prices. I was surprised how quick the service was considering how busy the restaurant was.

“Classic fast food”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Sully's is a fixture at Castle Island. It is a no-frills fast food legend known for its burgers, dogs, seafood, and ice cream. It's always busy, and with good reason. Service is prompt and attentive, and the food is tasty. Plenty of outdoor seating to take in the view of the water. Fuel up before or after a walk around Fort Independence. Parking is free, although you may have to walk a bit to get there during busy times. They have a breakfast menu if you are out and about earlier in the day.

Enjoy the takeout food at Castle Island South Boston and watch the planes overhead and the boat traffic on the harbor.

“Sullivan's”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

A great family owned casual restaurant in South Boston near the beach.
Great food at great prices.. A historic fort to see and near a close Boston beach. Many running paths with great views of the ocean. Open from March to Thanksgiving. They have great burgers fried clams lobster rolls and shakes. Highly suggested. Water a little cold but clean.
