When you are the only restaurant in a microscopic town (Seeley, well-north of Hayward) on a highway in a vacation area, travelers should be expected to be a big part of your clientele. These guys don't get that. We were on our way back to The Cities from Madeline Island and stopped in for lunch. We were there for well... More

We left before ordering. What a terrible experience. We came in and had some drunk old lady scream at us... not the saloons fault. But then the ONE waitress looked annoyed and asked if we wanted a booth or table, told her booth, and then she left us standing there without telling us where to go. The bartender (I believe)...

I'm really not sure how this place has NO bad reviews. We were just looking for a nice lil local bar to grab some good and a bloody. Our server took her sweet time to even acknowledge us or ask for our drink order. She acted annoyed and inconvenienced when finally asking us our drink order. Our bloodies come, super... More

We've passed this place several times on our way to other locations over the past few years and finally made time to stop and have a meal. I was a little tentative when we first walked in because at first blush it seemed more of a bar than a restaurant. However, the food was tasty, the service was great, and... More

I've eaten here several times over the years, from morning coffee at Mooselips to breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Sawmill. Every time, the food was delicious and the company was lots of fun. On the most recent visit, over Memorial Day weekend, we met some locals who were having a blast and made sure everyone else was having a... More

When you stay in Cable, WI, in December, you expect to have limited dining options or to drive into Hayward for meals. We were actually thinking about going to the grocery store and cooking in our condo, but on the way to Hayward we spotted the Sawmill and decided to try it. We're SO glad we did. Friendly atmosphere, excellent... More

I've been to the Sawmill Saloon many times. One of the best things about this place is that it attracts both the silent sports enthusiast and the motor sports enthusiasts in the area. The atmosphere is rustic and warm and the food and service are always good. I usually order the camo burger which has swiss cheese, black and green... More

On our way down Highway 63 on a Sunday morning we stopped at the Sawmill Saloon for brunch. It has a northwoods cabin atmosphere and serves breakfast until 11, which was reasonablly priced. We were satisfied with our meals and the service was friendly. The menu switches over to lunch at 11.
