Love the sweet potato fries

This is a great little place, good BBQ, lots of choices for entrees and side dishes. Cold beer if you want one. I've been here for lunch several time. Its always good.

Did some work at the near by airport. I was talking with the pilots about a lunch place. They both said the Sawmill. It was a great stop. Friendly staff. Great food. Had the pulled pork sandwich and homemade chips. The chips are great. The pulled pork had a great bark and great taste.

Don't look for fancy-the name Saw Mill-identifies it's appearance-rustic, sawmill appearance. Order at the counter, the food is brought out when ready - Find a seat- I ordered the special for about $10.99 which was a slab of ribs, and two sides and two slices of lightly toasted French bread-for my sides- I got the sweet potato fries which were...

e had heard about this place (for BBQ). So we went today for lunch. Pulled pork didn't have much of a smokey taste (I like lite to medium). Sauces decent. Baked Beans were disappointing… almost like what a person can get out of an upscale can at the supermarket… nothing to write home about. Got the sweet potatoes fries. You... More

We've been longtime customers of Sawmill and around a week before Thanksgiving got their email offering a whole smoked turkey for $50. I love their turkey to start with and their pork loin is superb as well, so I couldn't pass this up. We picked up the turkey at 10 AM Thanksgiving day. We got it home, put it in... More

Brisket was a good cut but cold on the plate and beans hotter than normal. Very friendly counter waitress and good service at the table. Fairly rustic, like a sawmill..

Have been many times in the past but probably not for a good 6 months. Good as always and the most crowded I've ever seen it! Went for lunch on Friday but they did good job getting everyone served fast enough and friendly. For $10 each it was very filing and good bbq. Recommend the turkey or brisket.

We were staying at the rv park and got a discount to the restaurant so we couldn't pass that up. Service was awesome we did a phone order and was ready in like 10 minutes. The brisket was superb as was the pulled pork. My boyfriend was over the moon about the corn fritters. Only complaint was for the price... More
