Service was outstanding, super friendly and authentic. Met Executive Chef, he was very complimentary of his team and their creativity. Food and presentation was excellent. Always a favorite when in the Vail Valley.

About the restaurant
Satchel's on 6th.

Named after the owner’s youngest son, Satchel’s on 6th is the place to eat and drink. Our Chef has created a contemporary, eclectic, New American neighborhood menu using seasonal ingredients that results in refined flavors and inspired plates. We've put our heart and soul into this place and it gives us great pleasure to serve you.
Warm wood tones and exposed brick highlight this cozy, 50 seat space that has made its home on East Denver reinvigorated 6th Avenue. Says Casalini, Our goal is to become the best go-to, indispensable restaurant in the neighborhood. Period. End of story.

I had the fettuccini dish with sausage. One of the BEST dishes I have had in a very long time. My adult son had the hanger steak and ate everything on his plate with a smile. Highly recommend!
