The food is for the most part good, especially for bar food w/only a few times being a miss. This the bar of choice I frequent weekly, I get off late and this just hits the spot. Gator has been my husband and I bartender for the past almost 10 years. I love this hardworking lady, she just takes care... More

It had been a few years since I had been to Satisfaction's and decided to meet some friends there for lunch since it was convenient for all of us. The menu seemed to have changed a little bit from what I last remembered and one of my friends said he thought management had changed a couple of years before. Pizza... More

I have been a resident of Durham for well over 20 years. The food is good but the service is often poor. If you can get a server they are rude and condescending. Please if you are visiting our fine town please visit some of the many local restaurants who better represent the Bull City.

Employees and bartenders were very rude. They refused to sell me a beer claiming that I would give it to my 26 year old nephew who they would not sell it to because his ID was not american... (Btw, the beer was for my father in law who is 85 years old and they made him get up and get... More

Enjoyable family friendly restaurant with a decent (but limited) menu. Beer selection was also quite nice with several local brewery's on the menu. Would certainly go back!

Satisfaction has been a favorite for the last 20 years. We were lucky enough to watch a Duke basketball game while having a late lunch. The crowd and atmosphere was AWESOME. The food was phenomenal and pleased everyone around the table. The Brisket is made by the owner and you can tell --- its tender, flavorful....one of the best I've... More

I was looking for just some basic family food in Durham and this place was recommended to me. What a disappointment. Don't bother ordering a burger ... it was thin, dry and tasteless. My wife ordered the lasagna and could barely eat it ... in her words all cheese and mystery meat. I did notice the sanitation rating was 91.5.... More

We stayed down the block and the gentleman at the front desk recommended Satisfaction. There are many restaurant choices in the area, but so glad we took his advice and went here. We are from New York, so are used to good pizza. My kids loved their pizza so much, we had to order a second one! Lots of TV's... More
