Very nicely curated menu
All diners pleased
Meals included scallops, pork chop and the fish of the evening
Service was excellent - personable but not intrusive
Some of the points of “ fine dining” are difficult to quantify, but while we most times enjoy our meals and overall experience @ Satterfields there is at times a nagging feel that some prices are inflated more than the value provided...
That being said, we brought our guests who were visiting from Savannah ( who are experienced and discerning diners) very specifically to Satterfields, as we we want to support local business that are of quality, aim for consistency and are attempting making a go of it always, but even more so now with all of the challenges that a global pandemic brings.
Thank you for continuing to serve during these trying times.
On another note, can the walnut and currant (or raisin ) bread still be ordered for purchase and pick-up?

The restaurant smelled like something was burning. My son & husband both ordered the burger & neither of them liked or ate it. The burger and bun were charred and black. I requested a vegetable plate, but was told that “we don’t really have any good vegetable options right now so you should just order two salads.” I have previously had very good experiences here but this last time was not good.

Unless you are looking for a specific appetizer/entree combination, I would suggest - every time - that you choose the “Trust Me” option. You get a six-course “tasting” of the chef’s whims. Don’t let the small size of the first two courses fool you. If try to eat everything set before you then you will be very full (albeit very happy).

This restaurant serves excellent food and the service is tremendous. I did feel the value vs cost was slightly low. Very small portions but very good quality.
We were in the dining area where the kitchen is and it’s very noisy and lots of traffic. They constantly yell out the orders like a short order kitchen - definitely distracting as there is no barrier, it’s an open window.

My wife and I had an enjoyable experience. Satterfield’s has a welcoming atmosphere and the staff was courteous as well as friendly. We even got a surprise appearance from the chef!!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a cool atmosphere with just the right amount of ambience which can lead to great conversation, a pleasurable experience and good food!!!

We got there very early on Saturday. The appetizer specials were a great value, notably the seafood tower. The density is lower, but I do miss the open kitchen. All in all a great experience.

After searching around, asking friends, and googling “best date night restaurant's in the area, my girlfriend and I decided on satterfields. It’s a very nice and cozy place, in a nice part of town. It was busy but not too crowded. We were sat and waited on in good time. The whole experience was good but honestly the food was just kind of average. It’s a fresh and modern taste on fairly run of the mill meals. I have nothing bad to say about the food. It wasn’t bad at all. Just not great. But the thing that got me was the price. We ended up paying over a hundred before tip (my girlfriend and I both had two drinks each also). The meal we received should have been around $50, but that’s just my opinion.
We ordered the tomato salad (too petite even for an appetizer and especially the price) I ordered the crawfish dip and a goat dish. Well seasoned and calorie rich which is what I was craving. On the upside the drinks were awesome and the gentleman who waited on us was engaging and nice.

The servers wearing mask and the wall blocking the Chef Counter were a tad off putting. But we realize this is not the restaurant’s choice either.

Two seniors sat at chefs table and enjoyed salmon and short rib entrees. Excellent Chianti, split salad and shared desert. Talked thru food choices with exec chef who was a pleasure to listen to. Always a favorite.
