Castle Island • Since 1951

A Southie Landmark

Back in June of 1951, Dan Sullivan, Sr. opened the stand for the first time offering quality food at reasonable prices and for four generations our philosophy has remained the same. Whether you make us part of your daily constitutional around the Island or are visiting us for the first time-welcome and thanks for being part of the tradition!

Fort Independence, completed in 1851, is the 8th military fort on the island. Castle Island is the oldest continuously fortified location in British North America.
June of 1951, Dan Sullivan, Sr. opened the concession stand for the first time offering quality food at reasonable prices and our commitment to that philosophy remains the same 60+ years later.
Since our opening, generations of Bostonians have enjoyed making Sullivan's a go-to destination.
Sullivan's second building erected. The cinderblock building stood for over 25 years.
4 generations of the Sullivan family have continuously worked at the 'stand'. In this photo, Dan Sullivan, Sr. working in the 1970’s.
Fads may have changed-but our hot dogs and french fries will always remain in style.
Current brick building is constructed in 1986. The façade is a replica of the officer's quarters that once lined the walk facing the bay, circa 1807.
Sullivan's celebrates its 60th year in Southie!
We remain committed to providing you quality food at reasonable prices in a family friendly environment!
