You have not visited Gainesville if you have not been there. It is one of my favorite restaurant in Gainesville. I am trying to think of a pizza place place I like better. The house salad is incredible the dressing out of this world. The pizzas have a lot of love in them. The staff is warm and friendly very... More

Well, really it is just a fun place and you should plan extra time just to walk around and pay close attention to the amazing decor, full of creations made of collections of everything imaginable. The pizza is awesome, of course (and BTW, a large is REALLY large) and I love their salad. Service is great. It seems to always... More

What an experience! Very eclectic. If you haven't been here or to the Bubble Room in Captiva, both are a must. More to see around every corner. The deep dish pizza was the best I've ever had. The crust was crispy and not soggy like most deep dish pizzas. The homemade sodas were interesting. They have several playgrounds/areas for the... More

Satchels is Gainesville's most unique restaurant and pizza place. The junk museum enthralls the kids and the food keeps the parents coming back. Eating in the antique VW bus is only for the flexible and average height customers. The children love it but its hard to keep the little ones inside. The variety of pizza is great and exceeded only... More

After much debate with my co-workers as to what defines a quality pizza, we took to the streets. First stop on the pizza battle was today at Satchel's. Besides the fact that there is a salvaged 1960's ford van out front you can actually dine in (very cool), and the junk museum out back (like hub caps?), the pizza is... More

Love this place! Full service up front counter service in the back. The pizza is always good and beer is always cold. They usually have live music in the back for your listening pleasure. Multiple play grounds for the kids to run a muck. Cash only! This is a great locals place to have fun and a great meal.

We loved all the "stuff". We went One night with a party of 4. When the rest of our party joined us the next day we wanted to introduce them as well. Simple, easy and good. I liked the beer selection in the back better but we did opt for the front. They told us an hour wait each night... More

The wait staff are prompt, courteous, and helpful. The decor is funky. You can select from among a group of popular pizzas, but we prefer to build our own from the wide variety of ingredients. It takes some time for the pizza to arrive at the table because they are individually prepared and baked. While waiting, you can enjoy the... More

When you arrive at Satchel's, you realize "you aren't in Kansas anymore." From the funky artwork to the "Van Dining Room" to the class music acts to great food. Satchel's has it all. The salad is very tasty with great greens, nuts, craisans ,etc with outstanding dressing. The pizza slice is huge. Thin crust with nice sauce. A simple menu... More
