The deep dish pizza I've ever had. It isn't like Chicago-style deep dish, it is a whole other animal, and it is fantastic. I've been to Satchel's very many times when I lived in Gainesville, and maybe < once a year when I return. This deep dish pizza is a requirement for me when I return to the Gator Nation.... More

If you are looking for great homemade pizza, a unique atmosphere, locally brewed sodas, and an unbelievably good salad then you have to try Satchels. I recommend living on the wild side and build your own pizza from the bevy of offered toppings. The way they cook, there are really no bad pizza combinations. I also highly recommend their ginger...

This is an EXTREMELY unique restaurant...it is ALWAYS PACKED...hint: go to the back and order your food for you to pick up and then go sit at a table on your own in the back....there is live music and it is family style...very fun!! This way you will avoid the typical hour wait for a table in the front!!!

Pizza's good salad is excellent. Do not like the fact that they only take cash., however. It is rather a novelty, kids love to go there, there's a little outdoor playground Everything is old and quaint.

Both families dining together, "1.5 hour wait", captive audience with low incentive for appreciable customer service. Good food, timely order to table time. Will come back for setting and home made soda.

I came here because they are the best restaurant in Gainesville. If you can overlook the snobbish hipster staff it has great pizza and a neat little shop that's fun to browse in.

We ate at Satchels and loved it. We could not decide between calzones or pizza so we got both. The calzone came first and was awesome. The flavor was incredible. Then just at the right time, the pizza arrived popping hot and ready to dive into. We ate well and brought a little of both home for a snack. We... More

My son took all of us there. He had been living in Gainesville for 3 years, on recruiting duty for USMC. He definitely knows where to go for great Pizza! So much to see, obviously the owner has been collecting unique items for a lifetime! Food was also great. We spent an hour eating and two hours looking and observing... More

I've eaten pizza all over the world, and I must say, Satchel's Deep Dish is the best. I have a few t-shirts from Satchel's and I've been called out while wearing one, a girl said, "SATCHEL'S!!! It's the best!! I have to grab my boyfriend, you have to tell him!!!" This was 850 miles away from Gainesville(Cincinnati, OH). My mom... More
