Great location and atmosphere.. my husband and I travel out this way once a year and make it a point to stop in for lunch at Sully's.. food is tasty, service is great! We'd love to come back for the nightlife and to celebrate St Patrick's day here!

We stopped in for a quick bite on our way to the beaches on Friday night and was attracted by the outdoor seating and live music on Main Street. Apparently this was the last of the summer outdoor live music so we lucked out. Service was pretty slow, our drinks didn't show up for about 10 minutes, server forgot she... More

Went to Sully's while checking out the best wings in Middletown. Sully's wings came in dead last. This is a great place to go if you just want a good old fashioned bar atmosphere and cold beer.

My husband and I frequently stop here for drinks for and a bite. It is technically a tavern, so no one under 21 is permitted. Service is always excellent, but they do have a dress code for men. Just FYI Drink: Excellent variety of beer, but they do not serve any traditional domestic beers, like Miller lite. Food: Everything I've... More

Saw the sign that said "Seafood & Irish Pub" and thought it was a seafood restaurant, but it turned out that the seafood was a fish market next door to a pub. So I went into the pub at noon on Thursday and found it really was a bar with tables and TV's playing sports. Tried the Reuben which turned... More

We had the Irish stew and ham and cabbage There was nothing on the plate but 2 leaves of cabbage 2 small thin slices of ham and the stew was maybe 4 oz for over $10.00 each. The pictures of food they show on the website is not there's must have come from a magazine.

Strictly a Pub, no particular ambience, suggesting otherwise. Cold beer, best tuna bites in the local area. Service has always been attentive.

We had dinner last evening here--we actually were headed elsewhere and stopped here as a last-minute change in plans. We shared the crab & asparagus risotto, which was perfectly cooked and delicious. We each had the pub burger, which tasted great, with perfectly cooked fries, which was accompanied by a great tasting cole slaw. At the waitress's recommendation, we tried... More

After living in Middletown for over twelve years now we went to Sully's on the recommendation of an acquaintance. We had read that the chef was new and I was craving fish and chips. WOW!!! We were not disappointed, The lollipop lamb chops appetizer was different than any I've had before and rank as one of the best ever. My... More
