I've eaten here a few times the service is awful. And asked for the food I've never had anything that really impressed me. It's an over hyped atmosphere

Wide variety of food, great service! It can get a little loud with the bar right there but it really is a great place to eat and family friendly!

Good food and great atmosphere. Wait staff and bartenders are always friendly and smiling. The daily specials are a great deal. Service gets backed up more than you would want when they get hit with a rush (youth sports teams show up), but that is to be expected.

I'm 60 and move around Minnesota a lot. My job brought me to Virginia and I found this place. I liked it for these simple reasons. The service was cordial and efficient. The walleye sandwich-blackened-was delcisio. First time I've had walleye in recent memory where the fish was fresh tasting and perfectly prepared (i.e. Not over cooked). Why did I... More

Good food and good service. A little pricey for a burger though. Overall, I would say the Sawmill is pretty average. Nothing to write home about.

I had the pepper jack steak wrap and it was truly one of the best wraps that I have ever had. It had Pico de Gallo instead of plain tomatoes do I thought that helped bringing out the flavor of the wrap. Very enjoyable atmosphere also.

Thank Cortney B
