We have visited satchels several times the pizza is always pretty good, not mine blowing. However what you go for is the atmosphere and the fun of the place

The place is an institution in Gainesville and apparently EVERYONE goes here for the funky atmosphere and DELICIOUS Pizza (ours was gluten free which made us slightly less guilty for eating too much. Their salads are huge, delicious and highly recimmended.

I dont even know where to start. Everything is so tasty from their salads,home made soda and of course some of the best pizza I've ever eaten!!!.

Funky pizza restaurant full of art/junk and good food. Salad and pizza are the go-to menu items. Slices are large so if you don't order a whole pizza they seem to throw toppings on a slice of cheese pizza for a custom slice. Not great but still worth a visit.

The menu is very good for pizza - I would avoid the "World's Best Pizza" since it is really deep dish and loaded with whatever ingredients one wishes. But if that is your thing, then by all means have at it. It... More

We have eaten at Satchel's just about every time we have gone to Gainesville. The food and service is top rate and the atmosphere is unique and unmatched. We particurlarly like the pizza and the salads. If you've never been, you're missing out on a Gainesville treasure.

Eclectic decor gives this restaurant a unique and hip feel. Kind of like going to a Grateful Dead concert. We ordered a small (which is quite large) salad and a medium Mama pizza. Tons of toppings to choose from. We chose fresh basil, ricotta cheese, roasted red peppers and sliced meatballs. The salad came out dressed with seeds, dried fruit,... More

A Gainesville institution. Crazy decor. They treat their employees well. Recent fire destroyed back area but they are open and getting much community support.
