The Sawmill was packed this morning - a random Thursday at 10am. Be prepared to wait for a table on weekend mornings and during the season. The portions are big and the prices are fair. My family has been eating here for 20 years or...More

The menu was extensive with many southern dishes to choose from. The best fried pickles! The rest of my dinner was a bit under seasoned for my taste, but everyone else seemed to enjoy theirs.

We are regulars at SAWMILL. Home style dishes give you the feeling of grandmas kitchen. Turkey dinner is my fav. Early bird 3-5.

There are plenty of country meats and vegetables to meet everyone's tastes. The breakfast, lunch and dinner are all good. Two of my favorite things to order are the country style steak and the hamburger steak.
