My husband andI stopped in after a long 6 hr ride up to the Hayward area. We were starving and ready to eat and our pizza was ready in minutes! It tasted fresh and delish! We have always passed the sawmill on our way to the cabin, it will now be a regular stop!

We have been to the Sawmill Saloon several times. We have traveled there via four wheelers, snowmobile and car. It's a must see due to the great collection of outdoor mounts, rare artifacts and interesting dining rooms and bar. Breakfast is great! The burgers are outstanding and we are headed there tonight to try out the Saturday night steak fry.... More

As would be expected there is the usual hamburgers, but I noticed there is a trend towards lighter and more 'healthy' choices. The lunch special was a humus/ham/cheese wrap. I wasn't in the mood for humus, but my husband chose a chicken salad (w/a punch) and he really enjoyed it. It brought sweat drops to his brow, unexpected but good.... More

Stopped here at 1:00 PM on a Tuesday and the parking lot was busy. Took a booth and the service was immediate. Nice menu, nice waitress. Good choice of good things and we chose a veggie pizza. Normal wait time for homemade pizza and it was delicious. Seemed like a homemade crust, too. Nice natural pine interior with lots of... More

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

Great fries, best steak sandwich EVER, friendly service. Excellent location right on the snowmobile trail. Spinach dip is awesome too. Yum!
