A reward for getting to the top of Mt. Lemmon

We went on a Saturday around 11:30 and only had to wait about 5 minutes until we were seated. The inside is fairly small but it doesn't feel cramped. The patio was beautiful but closed because of the rainy weather. We ordered the tri tip dip with mashed pototoes and the Cuban sandwich with a side... read more

Many years ago we drove up to mt. Lemmon and stopped for pie here. Decided to get out of hot weather for a few days and take a drive up to much cooler mt. Lemmon. Stopped at Sawmill Run for lunch and pie. Sat outside on their very comfortable patio. Chicken sandwich good, but blueberry pie absolutely delicious. Don't miss... More

The barbecue was great. Great place to sit on the patio and enjoy the views! On this particular day the temps were 40 cooler than in Phoenix.

I usually do not like to write a bad review, but this time I really want too. The food was ok, but the service was bad, the waitress's attitude was VERY BAD. When we ask for check after meal, after wait for a while, she told you " Go, sit down...". After we said : "we have been wait for... More

About 25 miles from Tucson, on top of Mt. Lemmon, you'll find this gem-of-a-place for a relaxing lunch or dinner. The food is delightful, the service is friendly and the pies are a must. Weather permitting, the terrace is perfect.

While visiting Mt. Lemmon, we stopped here for lunch. Friendly staff, you can tell that the guy who runs the place loves his job cause he was so pleasant and passionate about the business. When our food arrived, we were blown away and surprised by how good it was! The barbeque pulled pork potato chips were amazing! In fact every... More

Our party of four just wanted something simple like hamburgers but were tempted by the lighter fare instead.The grilled Caesar was excellent. The spinach salad with artichoke hearts and roasted red pepper was fresh, delicious, and huge. Two of us had fresh homemade vegetable soup, highlighted by sweet tasting fresh tomatoes. All this was followed up by a huge bread... More

My friend Kathy and I drove up to Mt Lemon for some hiking and to get away from the July Tucson heat. We were both hungry after a morning of hiking and headed over to the Sawmill Run Restaurant where we were seated outside. You could smell the wonderful smells of sausages being smoked next to the patio. We both... More

We took a day trip up Mt Lemmon and found this restaurant near the peak. We chose to eat outside since it was nice and cool outside and close to sunset. The atmosphere was nice, with views of mountains, cabins, hummingbirds and other wildlife. The variety of the menu was good and I don't think there was really anything over... More
