A dinner visit in October with two friends from WI was a very good experience. (I love it when the restaurant proves to meet everyone's expectations and beyond!). We enjoyed a hearty, hot, bowl of their roasted pulled turkey and varied bean chili, served with tasty chimichurri bread. It was filling and delicious. The service was friendly and timely. All...

I have eaten at this restaurant several times over the last 5 years. A bunch of ride our motorcycles up Mt.Lemmon and have lunch there. The service is good and the food is above average. It is a bit pricey but that is, in my opinion, due to it being at the top of Mt. Lemmon. They have a nice... More

Decided to take a nice scenic drive + checkout what we hoped would be really good restaurants. What a nice surprise, it was a lovely drive and the food here was excellent !! We had the reubens. Not as good as Toby's tavern on Whidbey Isl. reuben, but none ever are. It was very good, though.

We ate outside on the nice big deck. My son had the salmon but with a cup of the chili. My husband had a bowl of the turkey chili that had a nice mix of beans, the right amount of heat and shredded turkey. I had the beef sandwich with pickled beets. The beets were perfect, and the sandwich bread... More

We made our annual visit to the beautiful Mt Lemmon and had lunch at Sawmill Run. After the spectacular drive up the Mountain, we stopped at Sawmill Run. The service was excellent, the wait staff was helpful and we shared a Reuben sandwich ( they make their own corn beef) . It was great, we also tried their sweet potato... More

Our food was served nice and hot and was very good! Remember everything must be trucked up from Tucson so expect to pay a little more but the food and... More

We have visited Sawmill twice now and each time have been total underwhelmed. The food is mediocre at best and overpriced for what you get. If you want a place to kick back and have a beer on the patio, this is a nice choice . . . if you want to pay $7 a glass. Iron Door just up... More
