Southern cooking

Cabin type atmosphere. Good service. Moderate pricing. Good value for dollars spent. Behind golf course, so have eaten there several times. Would go back again.

Yes, the Veggies are truly farm fresh, but we are just never crazy about any of the meals we've had here. People keep raving about the Sawdust Mill and that keeps us trying it. Though I don't think again- sorry.

No apologies needed! We here at the "Sawdust" Mill understand not everybody likes fresh vegetables. And in looking at some of our area's restaurants that you rated as excellent, no further explanation is needed :) Happy Trails More

If you grew up with a Grandma who cooked traditional southern food you will be happy to find a place that cooks meat and fresh veggies just as well. What a pleasant surprise. The separate menu of local food and specials is what you want to use. Chicken tenders were juicy and well battered. The fried squash was just delicious.... More

We're pretty fortunate to have some amazing Grandma's in our family who have provided us with a rich heritage and training in Southern cuisine and methods. I don't think we'll ever be as good of cooks as they are but we certainly try to make the food and atmosphere as welcoming, We also try to integrate new elevated Southern cuisine... More

We stopped in during a day trip through the mountains and it sure was worth it!! The menu online lists the basic lunch meals but there is also a daily special with choice of meat and sides. I got the most delicious meatloaf with bacon and BBQ on top and my boyfriend got the chicken fingers. These were the best... More

The Sawmill is big on local produce, which is all well and good, but the lunch me was not all that appealing to me, so I went with breakfast. The food and service were fine, but not anything special in my book. Perhaps I had been led to expect too much.

We’re all a little dismayed that you rated our restaurant as “average” and that you found our food to be unappealing and unspecial. You rated the following as “overrated” and “average” in value: farm fresh cooked order eggs, locally sourced fresh sausage, made from scratch buttermilk biscuits, locally harvested, uniquely southern Blairsville vegetables like butterbeans, crowder peas, turnip greens &...

Okay, so I don't think there is a waitress named Mable, but the food at the Sawmill Place restaurant is farm to table and is excellent. They serve an incredible breakfast in a quaint homey setting. The restaurant sits on the site of an old sawmill and the decor is cabin-like. The farm fresh eggs are delicious, and they specialize... More

I stop in at the Saw Mill Place early every Monday morning as a treat to myself to get the week started properly. The food is always great and Norma, the early morning Monday waitress, is wonderful.

Four of us visited the Saw Mill Place for lunch. The restaurant was decorated in a comfy country decor. The food was fresh. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We all enjoyed our lunch!

We went yesterday morning and waited 20 minutes at 0930. Today we get up late and arrived at 1010. The wait time was 40-45 minutes. The food is great but we weren't willing to wait 45 minutes. Also, get a grilled biscuit! So good! My husband and I both got the breakfast wrap- mine with bacon and he got the... More
