Love this restaurant. They have a great bar with both indoor and outdoor seating. The best wedge salad in the desert. They also have live entertainment. Great happy hour place. The restaurant is also very lovely inside . Great food!

Today I age lunch here with my wife and adult son to attend a financial seminar in their conference room in the back of the restaurant. To be fair we were offered a limited menu but it's hard to complain when it's for free. I chose the 6 oz. filet mignon, cooked medium. I also had their lobster and shrimp... More

The staff was great. Loved my food and the cauliflower mash was divine. My friend ordered oysters and it took forever to get. The manager was very apologetic and bought a round of drinks. They did make up for it in the quality of the food..

We could tell right off when we were seated that the noise level was very high. The server had trouble hearing our orders. The food was very good but extremely high...

Nice deal for a seemingly upscale steak house. Prix Fixe meal, 3 courses, $45.Chose the Sirloin Strip. From the first bite, I had to be nice because I was with a friend who suggested the place. Forced 2/3 of this low grade beef down and made like I was stuffed. The meat was drenched in a pepper sauce that tasted... More

There was three of us couples celebrating our 15 wedding anniversary. The staff at Sullivan's went above and beyond to make it special. We had rose pedals on the table, each dish of the 3 course meal (we did the fixed price menu) was delicious especially the bleu cheese salad (and a little tip, order the Gorgonzola Butter and dip...

My husband was craving a good steakhouse so we decide to go to Sullivan's. We made reservations on line the same day without any problem. We were seated right away and were given delicious bread as we sat down. Our server, Justine, was excellent. She was friendly, efficient, and offered great feedback on menu when asked. Our only issue was... More

Sullivan's has always been on my "to-do-list", but it took a frustrating day at the Apple Store (next door) to get me in for a drink. Wow! I am so glad I finally got to experience this fantastic restaurant! All the staff was super friendly and there was just a really fun vibe about the place. We started in the... More

This is our favorite steak house in the desert. We had been looking forward to returning - we went with a party iof six. The food was great as always. The steaks are superb! Our waiter did an excellent job. But when it came time to deliver the food, it was three stooges time. The salads all were set down... More
