Lunch at Satterfield’s is always a treat. We enjoy their southern food choices. The fried okra, fried green tomatoes, and squash casserole are delicious as are the meat choices. Service is excellent. We enjoy meeting friends for lunch there. I gladly recommend Satterfield’s.

Delicious food and attentive service. The beignets for dessert were perhaps the best I’d ever had

I don’t know why we don’t come here more often… We don’t live close, but it is certainly worth the trip for us. Heath was our server and did a great job .

New decor devoid of any ambiance. Stark white. Bright lights, inappropriate music. High noice level. And most importantly I don’t think this particular chef understands food. Used to be one of my favorite spots. Pity.

The dinner was wonderful! Miranda, our server, was busy but attentive as needed. The restaurant had a beautiful group of prom goers and I loved seeing them.

We started with a dozen fresh oysters, and the birthday man got the filet and I had the snapper. Both were prepared to perfection.
And every year I take my husband for his birthday dinner but this is the first time a restaurant, even though noted on the reservation, has actually acknowledged it. It was so sweet.
When we arrived the noise level was quite fine but as the dinner continued and the restaurant filled up, the noise made it very difficult to have a conversation. I hope Becky will think about some noise abatement.
The staff takes the guests enjoyment very seriously. We are very lucky to have them in our neighborhood.

The food and service were amazing. Our party tried the charcuterie board and it was a great mix of meats and cheeses and some nuts. For dinner our group tried the braised short ribs, shrimp and grits and the snapper. Each plate had generous servings and every dish was a hit. Unfortunately we were to full to try dessert.

We always enjoy dining at Satterfield's; the food is always very good, the service is good, and the wine selection is excellent! However, it's always very loud whenever we go, which are typically on weekend evenings. This can be seen as a good thing, in that patrons appear to be having a good time. However, if you're looking for some quiet conversation, you might try having dinner on a week night. Perhaps it's a bit quieter then.

We are great fans of Satterfield's at night, but yesterday was the first time we had been there for lunch. We arrived at our reservation time of 2:00 p.m. but were told that the restaurant was closed by and employee outside. When we asked the host about our reservation, he seated us immediately in an empty restaurant. I thought this was impressive because the sign on the door said they stop lunch service at 2:00 p.m. This restaurant has come up with the perfect lunch menu for southern tastes: a meat and three with gourmet food. We started our meal with cornbread mini muffins brought to our table shortly after we were seated. I had sautéed shrimp. My sides were a cucumber and tomato salad and fried green tomatoes with cajun aioli. My husband had salmon, the basil cucumber and tomato salad, and squash casserole. I'm fairly sure that this is the only place in town that one can get traditional southern sides and a glass of Sancerre! The last surprise was that our bill was cheaper than the national chain restaurant we often eat at for lunch. Even though I'm sure that the staff had many other things to do to prepare for the dinner service, we were not rushed to leave. We will be back.

Satterfield's never disappoints. While we cannot be considered regulars, we frequent this restaurant when we can. This time the Okra Basket was the hit of the meal even above the succulent fresh snapper I enjoyed. Generous portions and creative dishes.
