Sulley's Bar & Grill, 2005 Beltline Boulevard: June 2014   19 comments

Posted at 12:58 am in Uncategorized
















Sulley's was the follow-on operation to D's Wings after that moved out to Sparkleberry. They opened in late June or early July of 2013, so they were there for about a year.

This was another place that was on my "eventually" list, that I never got around to visiting in time. I don't know why that is, as it is fairly close to me, and when D's was there, it was a comfortable spot for a leisurely meal.

UPDATE 22 October 2014 -- The upfit for the next tenant, J Peters Grill & Bar is well underway and they are hiring:




UPDATE 17 November 2014 -- J. Peters is now open:

  1. Wow! I agree, It's odd though, I'm pretty sure I heard a radio spot either yesterday or Tuesday that their special of the day was Meatloaf.

  2. Wait, what what what? I had my Jeopardy party there Monday night! :O

  3. Wow. Yes, we just had our big party Monday and it was covered here.

    Andy was super cool and accommodating. I asked a number of times how business was and it sounded like he was alright. Sorry Andy!

  4. If you are a Dolphins fan, he is selling that table for $40.

  5. Meatloaf was delicious but made for an expensive lunch. Not sure what they were doing wrong, but the place had a very "dead" feel at lunch time.

  6. Back around 1988 until the early 90's I believe that "The Original Pancake House" was in this location. I moved my Mom from Florida in April on 1988 from Florida to "Forest Corners" (now know as "The Biltmore) apartments right across the street and we used to enjoy some great breakfasts there. As far as I know, The Original Pancake House moved to Trenholm Plaza and I assume that they're still open there. It's been so long since I've visited that side of town, so I hope they're still there.

  7. @Paula, they are still open in Trenholm Plaza.

  8. The Pancake House was originally in Trenholm Plaza, moved this spot on Beltline, then it was moved back to Trenholm Plaza. It's been so long, I don't remember for sure, but I think that it moved back to the same spot in Trenholm Plaza that it had originally been in. It was in Sulley's spot until at least early 1996.

  10. Depressing. Not much to distinguish their menu from an Applebees or Chilies. Pretty high prices. A location that's struggling. (Wits End, Caymen Bay, Wendys, the whole Richland fashion mall) At least there are a few Malbecs on the wine menu.

    Might last a year. Hope I'm wrong, we could use some more eateries in this area.

  11. Oh baby! Cheese fries AND Potato skins! I'm there!

  12. I agree with MrBO. The menu does look like your typical 'fast casual' joint except for the prices which reflect more of a traditional sit-down restaurant. Of all the 'FC' restaurants, I still like O'Charley's the best. Haven't eaten there in a long time seeing as they closed the only one in St. Andrews/Irmo to put up another danged wing place!!

  13. badger - Oh Yea! I think I have decided what to prepare for supper soon.

    Homer - I have never eaten at O'Charley's. I think I saw one at or near the Columbia Mall location on Two Notch Road.
    With that said, stay with me for a moment.

    I was getting my hair cut today and my "Stylist" was telling me how her husband of 26 years died in his late 40's in a car accident. She is in her mid 60's now.
    She said she realizes now that they hardly ever went out to eat or went on vacation, just worked all the time trying to get ahead and supply for their children and pay off bills.

    She said that if she were able to go back in time, and do it all over again, she would have, as she said played a little more, had a little more fun, gone out to eat more often, traveled more. She was getting a little teary eyed and so was I.

    She really started to help me put things into perspective.
    What is really important in life? Do we forget some times to "Stop and smell the roses"? Do we neglect our family unintentionally worrying about things that will not matter on our death bed?
    Do we take the time to tell the people we care about that we appreciate and love them? I for one am guilty of all of the above.

    So, I was thinking about taking my wife out to eat this weekend, which we do less than we should, and going somewhere we would not normally consider going.
    Now back to where I left off before saying "Stay with me for a moment".
    Homer - If I do convince her to go out, What is good at O'Charleys? Any other recommendations?

  14. Rick I've only gone to O'Charleys twice but the one you remember near Columbia Place Mall moved out to Sparkelberry Square (10136 Two Notch Road) near Spring Valley High School. The only other option for them is out in Lexington. Mother's Day weekend one year I went with family to the defunct 1000 Bower Parkway location Homer misses and it seemed like the service was slow. The other time I was with a bunch of family after my mom's dad died to the (what was then) Columbia Mall location and everything went well...I haven't been to either of the two locations but I don't have anyone to enjoy them with and I'm not keen on eating at restraunts like that solo.

    Also, something to associate with the widow story you told that I've read, "no one on their death bed wishes they spent more time at the office."

  15. "No one on their death bed wishes they spent more time at the office."

    How true, Andrew! Which is exactly why I am travelling to the midwest next month for a "We're all 60 " party in the little farming town I grew up in. The last time I went home 14 of the 70 'class of 1972' graduates had already passed away. Time does not care whether you enjoy your life or not. Get out there and do stuff!

  16. Andrew - Terry - You have just reinforced what I was thinking.


    22 Aug 14 at 2:43 pm

  17. Rick - there is an O'Charlie's at 10136 Two Notch Rd. just past the Walmart and Spring Valley High on the right.

    I can't really comments on the evening menu as almost every time I've eaten there was at lunch. I never strayed very far from the chicken fingers and burgers due to time constraints.

    I did have the steak and shrimp a couple of times that I did eat there for dinner and they were pretty dang good. They used to have a great seafood platter but they dropped it a while back. They do have a variety of foods to choose from.

    Sorry I can't offer any better recommendation. The food is good but don't expect Diane's on

  18. I asked a friend of mine in the upstate about J Peters Grill and she said "Yes, I've eaten at two of their locations. I love their food. Great salads!"


    23 Aug 14 at 12:28 pm

  19. Looks like a new restaurant is going to try and make it here. Coming Soon signs have started going up. Missed the new name.
