We really enjoyed our 1st visit to Sullivan's. My wife had the the stuffed flounder and I had the cobia special. We thoroughly enjoyed them. There was a large variety of sides to choose from.

I have had seafood at many of the restaurants in the area and the fried shrimp at Sullivan's Restaurant was the best! I was there with 4 adults and a teenager and we all enjoyed our food equally. We had a short wait and were seated in a nice location. We were also able to sit and speak with one... More

Sullivan's is my favorite seafood spot to go to when I'm in the Low Country. The shrimp and grits is creamy and delicious. The fresh fried shrimp and hush puppies are southern classics. The sweet tea is refreshing. So if you want a true taste of the south head on down to Sullivan's where the food is delicious and experience... More

If I lived here, they would know me by name. We shared the she-crab soup and the crab dip for appetizers, and both were extremely good. And both were outdone by the shrimp and fried grits.

Our party of 6 came for dinner tonight on our first night vacationing on the island. I left feeling very disappointed. I ordered the broiled shrimp with a side salad and baked potato. The shrimp were awful. Boring and average like any frozen package of shrimp from the grocery store freezer section but with some old bay seasoning thrown on... More

Looking for a good locals seafood place, this place is very good. Shrimp and grit cake was excellent. Fried flounder and shrimp was very good. They have outdoor seating and a cozy, casual inside dining room.

After reading all the good reviews for Sullivan's we were excited for a really nice dinner of great seafood. We were extremely disappointed though. The only thing that is making me give 2 stars is the kids meal fried flounder and fries, which was the best thing we had out of our entire dinner. That, and the service was friendly.... More

The Flounder was on a chef specials for the night so I said why not. It was delicious - fried perfect and with creamy grits and homemade coleslaw it was a perfect dinner. A glass of Pinot and my nite was complete.
