I eat lunch here a few times a year, partly because it's near work. The food is decent, and the service is usually very good. It's kinda dark inside, which might work in the evening, but I wish it had a lighter atmosphere during the day. There are always some TVs going, so it's nice to catch sports clips and... More

I ordered the cheese steak on wheat. I didn't like it as the wheat was a honey wheat or something, the sweet bread didn't compliment the steak and cheese. It's dark in there during the day, not impressed with that and most of the all the house made chips had no flavor nor salt....just blah..won't be going back.

I recently had a group of 30 people here on a Thursday. We were assured they could handle a group that size. We got 1 waiter, and it took over an hour to get served. I tried going to the bar to get a beer and was told I had to "wait on my waiter". (Pretty sure the bar has... More

I've been here to watch "the game", to meet friends, or just to stop in for an order of onion rings. Staff has been friendly and food has been fine. Thought the onion rings can be addictive.

Been going here for years. No bad meals. Pizza is good, sandwhiches are good. Chips and Dip as an appetizer is always a winner.

We bought a Groupon and decided to try this place. It was still expensive even with the Groupon. The food was ok. I had nachos and my girls had pizza. The service was not great and I did not love the atmosphere, but others might, It was not the worst food I have ever had either so give it a... More

My family and I recently ate at Satisfaction twice. The pizza was great, fresh ingredients, perfect crust, ample toppings. Price was very reasonable. Looking forward to going back.
