This was my 1st visit but 4 others in our party of 8 had eaten here before. If you park on the street which is very hard to do you walk in on the restaurant level, if not you walk up 2 flights of stairs. The entire back of the restaurant is glass and you have a wonderful view of False River. There is a Landing Lounge on the bottom floor. We were seated but no one rushed over to take our drink order, we were given the chance to look at the entire menu before our drink order was taken. The waitress didn’t even welcome us or provide any small talk when she approached our table. As our party consisted of 8 we all sat at the same table and our checks were separated by 2 each, but by us sitting at the same table even though the waitress would have done the same job, they add the gratuity to each bill (to assure they get a tip, not that any of us would not have not given a fair share of a tip but by the restaurant doing this, the waitress was cheated out of more of a tip than she got from the entire table!) 2 ordered the shrimp salad which the greens looked fresh and the shrimp were beautifully grilled. 1 ordered a shrimp Po-boy, nothing to write home about, 1 ordered fried oysters which was fried hard and when I say this the batter was dark and hard crispy, 2 ordered catfish and oysters which were also fried hard, 1 ordered and 2 ordered the lunch special NY strip requesting one to be medium and the other raw of which both were overcooked, but I can say that the flavor was delish! The stuffed potato was good as well as the melody of vegetables. Only one of us received a drink refill, what a way to save money Satterfield’s. I can only wonder what type of service and food awaits you if the restaurant was busy! The Manager needs to step up and interact…..
Overall a nice historic building built in 1917 the “Satterfield Motors” with overpriced lunch menu and so-so food. I wouldn’t give it a second chance!
I wish I would have gone to Nanny's LunchBox for lunch today!
