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

We had a great lunch for 15 car club members! The wait staff did and excellent job with our group and still served their other guests in a timely manner. 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

My husband took me here to celebrate my birthday. Yes, we both have gray hair. The quality of the food was outstanding, but we had disappointing customer service. Our young server was not very friendly, although tables with younger patrons got plenty of attention. We were not offered refills on our drinks. We saw our server when he took our... More

On my Wife's Birthday we decided we needed to see Mt. Lemmon and have a dessert after the great brunch we had at the Blue Willow in Tucson. It is a beautiful setting and the food that was delivered to tables around us looked good, the Apple Pie we ordered w/Ice Cream was warmed. But the taste was unremarkable, you... More

This restaurant is great! I ate lunch there on a Saturday and it was a bit noisy, as was to be expected, but it didn't detract at all from my enjoyment of the place. It has a great atmosphere: I really liked the rustic look inside, with the beams and ironwork and ceilings, as well as the historic photos on... More

It was my first time here and I was impressed with the quality of food and how fresh it was. I had a bacon cheeseburger and sweet potato tots. The tots were amazing! You bit into them and the sweet potato was so fresh inside! It had a sweet crunchy outside. Delicious!

Cute little place in Summerhaven..friendly staff, great food selection and great service. I tried the Veggie Wrap and it was delicious. Loaded with spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, feta cheese and a delicious hummus dressing. Nice place!!

We have eaten here many times and like the quality of the offerings. Recently in our last 2 trips we have encountered frustrations about: 1. Seating-the sign at the entrance says "Please wait to be seated". Well, that can be quite awhile. Last time the wait staff said "be with you ih a minute" and she then went to the... More

As we were driving up Mt. Lemmon we never expected to find the quaintest town nestled up on the mountain top. After our long drive we were all quite hungry and decided to pull over to the restaurant to check out our options. We were pleasantly surprised to find something for everyone (our boys are extremely picky eaters). I had... More
