Love the place, but when there is a group of ten plus, the service always slows down. Waitress was less attentive and took much longer to place our orders. Seems they also have to do double duty behind the bar. ??

We had to constantly flag (find) our waitress to get waters refilled, more drinks, take the dishes away, more silverware, etc. I think I worked enough to deserve a tip that night. lol
This place was packed by 7pm on saturday night. I suggest them getting more help so that everyone can be tended to.

Food and atmosphere was great. Waitstaff friendly, service and kitchen extremely slow despite no people there but us to begin with, and no change when it started to get somewhat busier.

It was super noisy, but then again it was St. Patty's day.
However the service was stellar, food was good, and drinks were strong!

Not our best experience here. We may have just been there on a bad night because of St. Pats day but it took us about 1 hour to get our food. We were seated around 6:15. Food has been better in the past also. As I said just may have been one bad night.

Love Satchmo’s and am a regular. One minor gripe is the cold temp inside during winter. Every time the front door opens a blast of cold air shoots thru the place. Is there anything that can be done... a second door? Higher temp inside during winter?

The highlight is really one of the servers, Payton. He’s fantastic. Very attentive & great at his job. He suggested a new brand of gin, that we really enjoyed. When our food was WAY behind, he took care of us. He’s terrific! We always love it when Rob & Johnny or 5 Star Roscoe are performing. Fun night, overall!

Delicious meal! We were promptly seated for our 6:00 reservation on Valentine's Day in a quiet booth and enjoyed wonderful food served in a timely fashion without feeling rushed. I had the Kings Ransom, which I looked forward to all day and it did not disappoint! See photo! My husband had the Burger Night special and it was terrific as well! Loved every minute - thanks again, Satchmo's!

We love trivia at Satchmo's and I eat there at least one other time each week. The food is consistently good, as is the help. I'm always striving to find others to play Tuesday trivia.
Sometimes on Sundays between brunch and happy hour, there is only one staff person who must man the bar and act as waitress, which can lead to some delays in service.
The only other issue is hard to fix...in winter when it's cold and the door keeps opening and closing, the gusts of cold air can be chilling if you're seated anywhere near the door.

Satchmo's has the best gumbo in town. The Jambalaya is also very good. They do all of the usual bar foods very well. The staff is friendly. They have a small, but well thought out, selection of draft beers. I go for Space Dust.

Burger Thursday is a fantastic value with a delicious 6 oz burger and fries for $3.99 as long as you buy a beverage. Our server was awesome too. Our burgers were cooked perfectly.

My only complaint is that they don’t have Coke products, only Pepsi and Dr. Pepper. It would be nice if they at least offered Diet Dr. Pepper if they won’t carry Coke products.

I’d also highly recommend their SOB pizza (sausage, onion and bacon).

I really like this place. it's the 2nd time I've been and I plan to visit more this year. the ONLY thing I dont like are the servers placing straws in my drinks and the straws being unwrapped. but other than that everything was excellent! and oddly enough, I had the same waitress as my 1st visit. I know she sees hundreds of ppl every year but I usually remember the good ones. and she was. her name is Shelby. she was awesome!

The furnace was broken and the place very cold. A portable heater was placed way back by the restrooms and when asked if it could be moved so it would benefit the patrons we were told it could not. It looked like an electric heater so the rationale didn't make sense. We come for trivia every week and over the course of almost three hours it grew so cold we could have worn gloves.

Hopefully there is a functioning furnace installed now.

Mariah is a great waitress!

Our first visit was great. I ordered Fish & Chips. The portions were huge! My husband had the Shrimp & Grits. They were excellent. We had another couple with us, and they were also pleased with what they had.
Great food, good service. This will probably become one of our regular "Go To" places.

We've been to Satchmo's many many times and the food has always been high quality and the waitresses attentive and prompt. I recommend Satchmo's over other local bar/restaurants in the county. Their Tuesday night trivia is one of the best kept secrets in town and always fun! Come to Satchmo's for trivia Tuesdays!

Wanted to like this place, the menu looked promising. The service was poor, actually had to go to the bar to get drinks as waitress would not come to table. Food value wasn't bad, but all 4 people at the table stated the food wasn't warm.

We have tried and tried to like this place but they continue to disappoint on the details. Love the band playing there tonight so we gave them another chance. Food is average and service is always challenging. Wraps were good but everyone's fries and chips were mushy. Really...can't do fries and chips well? Server was not very friendly and they gave us a hard time about requesting they turn the Blues game on a TV near us. We live close and would really like this to be our neighborhood go to place, but we keep getting disappointed.

The service tonight was subpar I think in part due to a large group. Our reserved table was given away to a party of two but the hostess did clean up when they left at 8 for trivia. It took an hour to be served (our waitress was great but the young lady that stood where the food is set out did not communicate with our waitress and was not very friendly or responsive. Again, our waitress was great but I had to repeatedly hunt down staff for us to be waited on. An hour was too long for this I believe. First time we weren’t pleased with the service.

We went for breakfast for the first time. They call it a brunch, but it's a very limited menu of about 7 choices and some sides. The food was not that great, the service slow even though the place was mostly empty.

Cocktails were skimpy and food was only mediocre. Ordered a burger but the plates were small and even though we had to pay extra for sweet potato fries, they skimped on the serving size. Service was good, however, and the wait staff was friendly. The restaurant also seemed dirty, as the carpet was actually sticky. I wanted to like it because I live in the neighborhood, but was very disappointed.

Their soda machines not working. They had no lemonade. The BLT only had 1 and 1/2 slices of tomatoes on half the sandwich. Had to ask for 2 slices of tomatoes. First time visit was not very good. The soda poured from a bottle was flat.

Other than the price of their special for the day, everything else is overpriced and bland. The tuna wontons had zero flavor. My burger was ok, but my guests came out raw and slimy in the middle. No offer to comp them or even a discount. Drinks are extremely watered down as well. Definitely won't go back or recommend.
