The decor is cozy and woodsy. I loved the fireplace in the middle as it made atmosphere on a freezing cold day. The food was fantastic! We were there for breakfast and would go back for sure! Delicious and filling portions with kind and fun wait staff. The BEST part of the Sawmill Inn by far!

We forgot to make reservations for Friday December 30, 2016 – but when we arrived and inquired, our party of seven was accommodated without hesitation, although the sign clearly said reservations were required. The wait staff members were wonderful, attentive and prompt, the bartender knowledgeable, the food was good, and the ambiance was perfect.

Get there early for the early bird menu to save some money. Pop overs are great, bread pudding is awesome!

We came for dinner as it was next door to our hotel and we wanted something local. The food was ok but - my husbands steak sandwich was medium rare, not medium well, my pasta had way too much cheese on the top. The popovers were good but some lemon butter or lemon honey butter would have been nice. Our... More
