After our drive up Mt. Lemmon, we expected slim pickings as far as restaurants up top, and we expected to pay more. We chose this place because it looked like a place with variety. It was. Good menu, although my son ordered pulled pork which was substituted to brisket, which was dry. Otherwise all other food ordered was good. Not... More

We visited here in Jan, 2014. The food was great. The staff was knowledgeable. It was quite cold outside that day and it was a good place to stop, warm up and grab lunch

Eat here and you will be happy! Good food and service. Nice ambiance and history. Fun place to eat in the beautiful Catalina Mountains near Tucson, Arizona. A great road takes you there and hiking is wonderful during the Spring, Summer, and Fall.

We spent a little too long hiking and taking pictures and, since it was a slow day, they had started closing the kitchen down early so we only had a few appetizers to select from. When we walked in, the smell of pork in the smoker tempted us. We were disappointed to find out the full menu was not available.... More

Really good food. We were a party of 9 and they treated us so well. We ate inside but the kids were running outside on the patio (no one was out there). We each (6 adults) ordered something different and everyone raved about the food. It really was delicious and totally unexpected in a small mountain community. I can't recommend... More

This is a great restaurant destination if you are doing the senic drive up Mt. Lemmon. Ample seating inside, and a roomy patio outside with umbrellas so you can enjoy your mountaintop perch. The smoked brisket dip sandwich with sweet potato tots was very tasty and is enough to split if you are a light eater. The waitstaff are friendly,... More

We planned a day trip to Mt. Lemmon and planned to take our dogs. Prior to leaving I called Sawmill Run and asked if they were a pet friendly business. The person I spoke to explained that you could have your dog at a table on the patio, but not in the dining room. Sounds good. We came to the... More

Lunch on the patio ... 73 degrees ... overlooking the small town of Summerhaven at the top of Mt Lemmon. The restaurant had a short wait and the service was great. My wife and I had talked of driving to Mt Lemmon for the 15 years we have lived in Phoenix but it was a Trip Advisor review of the... More

Great place to eat lunch. They have a nice variety of food from a "Kids Menu" that starts at $5.95 to $27.95 for a full rack of ribs. Most of the menu is $6.97-$12.95.I enjoyed a cheeseburger made to order with delicious home-made chips. I shared a "Smoked Monster" with my son that was BBQ chicken with mac and Cheese... More
