Great food!

This was a surprise, we weren´t expecting really good food at a restaurant on a small town like Mount Lemmon but we found this restaurant where everything from the french fries to the main course was great. The only reason I don´t give them 5 stars is because the waiters were a little slow and... read more

After the magnificent drive up Mt. Lemmon, we were treated to a special lunch! I had a superb spinach salad packed full of artichoke hearts, mushrooms, roasted red peppers and bacon with a lemon vinegarette dressing that was maybe the best spinach salads I have ever had. My husband and the other couple each had a reuben and they were... More

A very scenic drive up Mt. Lemmon to Summerhaven at about 8000 feet. Great food, great service, friendly atmosphere. Don't miss the sweet potato tots, an amazing complement to the Reuben.

My husband and I took our daughter and grandchildren to Sawmill Run while visiting the Tucson area. Very friendly staff, delicious smoked chicken, and the best turkey chili I ever ate. WE also indulged in dessert since they are made in house. I had the peach pie with ice cream. Sooooo Gooood!!!

This is a very cozy and family friendly restaurant. The wait staff was very friendly and fast. The environment was cozy and warm on a cold snowy day. I had the meatloaf which was delicious. The prices were very reasonable and the portion sizes were very generous.

Enjoyed a burger, piece of pie and coffee in the warm, cozy atmosphere where service was prompt and with a smile. Nice way to break up the day's drive with a bit of relaxation and good food.

This restaurant was surprisingly good for a very small village. The food was excellent and serving sizes large. Prices were very reasonable. I would recommend the Rueben and the pastrami sandwiches. Fries were excellent.

Exceeded our expectations! There were a lot of people waiting even at 2 PM for lunch on a holiday weekend. We waited a while for a table for 7 but it was definitely worth the wait!

We took the opportunity today to try out the new Mt. Lemmon tour app from the University of Arizona, winding our way up the Catalina Highway to the top of Mt. Lemmon. We had no intention of visiting the Sawmill, but it turned out to be a great find! We arrived a bit after noon, pleased to find an open... More
