    Really good service, cocktails and food! This has a New Orleans / Cajun menu. We had Tuna wontons for an app which was delicious, as was the seafood spinach dip. The jambalaya and etoufe were both excellent too. Finally the shrimp tacos were very well put together. Definitely a place I’ll go back to. Curb appeal was a bit underwhelming BUT everything else made up for that!

    This is our fifth experience at Satchmo’s Bar & Grill. The first time was about 7 years ago and the experience was excellent. The food was high quality and innovative and the service was very good. Each experience since has gotten progressively worse. Last night the only table available was a high top in the bar area (although we had a reservation for standard seating). Once seated we waited about 15 minutes before someone acknowledged us and said she would take our table because the person who was supposed to help us was behind. We placed a drink order and then waited another 10 minutes until our waitress finally went behind the bar and made the drinks herself. We’d heard from other patrons the bartender was overwhelmed (similar to an experience we had about 6 weeks ago). The fish and chips tasted like the cooking oil was old and the shrimp and crawfish in the etoufe was chewy. The only redeeming aspects of the evening was the band playing (The Jumbo Shrimp) was energetic and our server who seemed to be covering for everyone (she did carry out, she bussed tables, she hunted down menus, she made cocktails…). I’d recommend management at Satchmo’s close the place down for a few days to clean it very well, organize it and retrain most of the staff.

    Despite having a reservation, we had to wait 10+ minutes for a table even though there were plenty of tables open. We had 3 infants and the hostess had us sitting next to the stage on a night where a live band was playing.

    Sorry Satchmo's...........tried Kareoke the other night, way too loud with tables of patrons talking over the MC of the game. Secondly the steak taco's were horribly dried up small chuncks of meat. To be fair, I have been there several times before and enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service. The service was great last night and has been everytime other time I have been there

    The pictures of the food on opentable gave the impression that this restaurant is upscale. It is not. It was not a bad place, just not as presented. The food was OK.

    I was expecting spices in my croele food. Also, why does a restuarant with a seat yourself policy need reservations? I bought date here for her birthday and it was utterly humiliating.

    I really wanted to have a good experience here. This place has great potential. Every single staff member was friendly, the menu is wonderful, and there is live music. Unfortunately, the food was not great. My jambalaya had hard rice in it and it had an overwhelming sauce. If the rice was cooked appropriately and there was less sauce, it may have been pretty good. The nachos that we ordered as an appetizer had a cheese sauce that tasted over-cooked. My husband’s burger and fries were good. The most I ate that night was the bacon off of his burger and half of his fries. Also, we were excited about the live music, but we could not hear it. They need better sound equipment.

    We went for a date night thinking that it looked like It would be a more upscale place as it was presented on opentable. It would have been great if we had wanted to watch a game and have good bar food, but it just wasn't our mission that night. Not a bad place but not at all what we expected. It doesn't seem like the sort of place that would take reservations. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    There were 4 of us, we got drinks and 2 appetizers and then we were forgotten. There was only bartender and our waitress was very sweet but had too many tables watch. We ordered another round of drinks and dinner. It took forever to get our order. The Preakness was on the TV and a Blues game followed. The bar was full and it seemed the staff was overwhelmed. When we finally got our food it was only warm. It was very disappointing.

    I understand there are staffing issues everywhere. Our food took a long time and it wasn’t very busy. Some food came out way after others did. The steak didn’t have much flavor. Some food was really hot, some was just warm. The server was great and very attentive.

    All of our food was cold or just slightly warm. My husband’s gumbo tasted so bad he didn’t eat very much of it. The waitresses were very nice but there were only 2 for the whole place and they were both waiting on everyone instead of splitting the tables up between them. They were very overworked and it made service very slow. Overall I would NOT recommend this place.

    Our server Daniel, was on it. There when we needed him. We started with the steak bruschetta. The balsamic was delish. Two in our party had the HUGE Smokehouse burger, both cooked to desired doneness. And both remarked how good the fries were. I recommend the Jambalaya. Blended with shrimp and Andouille and properly spiced with just the right amount of heat. Happy to learn Satchmo's takes reservations through Open Table. Thanks!

    Only one waitress available for the entire restaurant! It was very cold. Asked the server to turn up heat. Finally asked the manager and he did finally did. THE worst part was it took an hour and 15 minutes to get our food and it was luke warm. Bad experience.

    The table was reserved for us, in the section we asked for. The server was very personable, but the specialty drink, “bee‘s knees” was awful. At least 3 other people who ordered it said the same thing—it tasted like straight lemon juice. Service was slow. We ordered the brick sandwich & the fish & chips—both were way over cooked, dry & tasteless. We used to come here a lot under previous ownership & the food was great—but it has really gone downhill. The dessert donuts were decent, but don’t bother with the gooey butter cake. We left much earlier than we planned to, b/c we were being crowded out by the “standing room” people. All in all, not a good experience.

    After Thanksgiving outing with friends. Went early since we were going to a concert. So not a lot of people in the bar restaurant. Server was new but very friendly and attentive. Food was surprisingly good. Not normal bar fare. Downside was the whole restaurant smelled of old grease. So maybe they are not on top of that. The server did mention a new cook recently. Only mentioning this because it matters in the longevity of a good place to eat. I definitely would go back and try again!
