Well, the pizza is great, but the salad is to die for. Strongly recommend you not only get the pizza of your choice, but try the small salsa as well . . . Actually the salad is a great starter for two people. Give it a try . . You will not be dissapointed.

Don't want to kick a place when it's down. Another fire? Hope to see you back on your feet soon in any regard and glad everyone is okay. But - Our last experience wasn't that great. Neither the one beforehand. What happened? The pizza crust was still excellent, but the toppings tasted canned, sparse cheese, and Lola Cola not quite... More

The funkiest looking place in Gainesville also offers the best pizza in town. This isn't your everyday perfectly round pizza dough that was created in a factory somewhere and frozen to be thawed and used. It's like making your own pizza at home. This pizza Is misshaped it's crunchy (if you want it to be) and it can be whatever... More

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.

Thank Chelsea I
