We offer catering on site or off. There are many benefits to taking the catering route. But you can save a bit of money by ordering take out.
This might be a good option for parties of fewer than 25.
If you know what you want and you are bringing a group to Satchel’s at a time that is not normally busy, you might choose to call your order as a take-out order. We suggest you call in your order a few hours before you want to pick it up and orders over $125 are subject to a 10% gratuity to be added.
We have some seating areas for large parties under the plane out back, in the greenhouse, and in our bar and gift shop, Lightnin Salvage. You are on your own finding a spot and getting any plates and napkins you need from the bar. Friday and Saturday evenings can be packed everywhere so we strongly suggest you go the catering route if you want to have a party of 20-50 on a Friday or Saturday night as these areas may already be “reserved” through our catering option.
If you decide to call in a take-out order for a large group (15 or more) and are coming in to eat, please let us know when you are coming and how many you are bringing as a heads up as we may need to have an extra person on staff to help in the bar.
-A reserved space. We have a space that can accommodate 20-50 people outside under the plane. The downside of the space is that it's mostly covered but parts could get a little wet if it rains. In the event of a reservation and rain, we will also open the greenhouse area for the reservation and this should allow for folks to stay dry.
-Gracy helps plan out the meal. You might be surprised at how many emails can go back and forth to plan a party as the headcount changes and dietary restrictions come to light. It takes a lot of back and forth sometimes and with catering we’ve got you covered.
-Someone from Satchel's to meet you at that time and make sure you have what you need. We do not provide a dedicated server or staff for your party but we set it up so everyone can self serve as needed.
-A table set up for the pizzas, plates and napkins and a water station. We can help with the handling of pitchers of soda or beer and wine and needed cups. We can run a tab at the bar for your party.
-Plenty of food for everyone. We make sure there are some leftovers. If you want less food because children are involved or you just don't need to feed everyone as a full meal, we can certainly adjust the head count down from the actual number. Gracy works with you on that.
-Flexibility with payment. Sometimes a catering is paid in advance, paid at the time of the event, or even paid the next day. Paypal invoices can be used and prices can be adjusted on the fly as more pizza or drinks are needed. We always prefer cash at the time of the event, as we are not charged fees and have more money for food and staff costs.
-Good to go. Once you’ve gone through catering the order is ready at the time
