Great pub and food

Nestled in the Brightleaf Square area, this pub is a great place to go for food, beer and to watch sports. They have televisions galore, a nice pub atmosphere and GREAT pizza! Service is good (not great) and furnishings are typical of a sports bar.

The pizza was good but the service and atmosphere leave a lot to be desired. With so many pizza places between durham and chapel hill, why bother ?

A colleague an I went to Satisfaction for dinner after the woman at the front desk of our hotel recommended it. Although the place was dead (school out and a Tuesday night), our service was sub par. The waitress did not seem interested to be there. After we ordered, the waitress came back twice to let us know what we... More

This is a quick eat joint down a quaint alley of shops and quick eats. The group I was with enjoyed a variety of pizzas. I had to hot wings. They were spicy but tasty. It has a bar feel and a great place to go and hang out with friends. I was with a large group and we had... More

I went to Satisfaction last weekend - I was grabbing a quick bite before heading to the airport. It was not crowded and service was quick. I just ordered a pizza. I took my leftovers with me to the airport - they traveled with me and tasted great while on a layover many hours later! This pizza place is near... More

This bar allows you to sit anywhere in the bar and root for the Dukies with about 20-30 TV's everywhere! The atmosphere is great and the drinks are what you would expect for a college town bar. The service was slow, even for being the first weekend of March Madness, and the pizza hit the spot for what I was... More

Typical sports bar. You can watch almost any game you like. If you are not into sports you can do some karaoke. Waitress was quick with drinks and food orders. Even with refills. Love the nachos. Large plate with different colors of nachos (?). Plenty of sauce, cheese and jalapenos. The food others had seemed great as well. The atmosphere... More

Pizza is my favorite food to eat out and whenever we are near Durham, we always go to Satisfaction -- we have been coming here for 28 years and their pizza is as great today as it was when we were students at Duke! Its a basic sports bar atmosphere, but its pizza is among the best!

I had a what they called a Greek salad= #epicfail basically a house salad with feta cheese and banana pepper rings. I thought the olives in a Greek salad were kalamata olives not just your regular black olives. The dressing for the salad was tasty but I didn't feel like I was eating a Greek salad. I did however enjoy... More
