We visit this area at least once or twice a year and always stop at the Sawmilll grill for a hearty breakfast. Staff is always friendly. This trip in March, we shared biscuits , grits, eggs, fried pork chops, sausage and eggs. Everything was very good and they even put a candle on the biscuit because it was my friends... More

We chose Sawmill Grill for our family night out. We sat down at a clean table like the sign said. We sat for almost 10 minutes before they even brought menus and drinks. Then the servers took tables orders that had come in after us first! I ordered a side of fried okra and so did my mother in law... More

We have had dinner here a number of times. Shrimp, fish, salad bar, sides and cake. All really good. In fact the only disappointing experience we have had -- they were out of the special and closed one day when we got there.

Saw many cars here so I stopped to see how good there lunch meal was. Had the fried chicken, cucumber salad, and mashed potatoes. The food was great, the service fantastic, and the price cheap. The sanitation rating was 95.5. The restroom needs cleaned and the trash emptied today!

We stopped by last Friday morning on the way to a job. Although there were plenty of tables available, it took and inordinate amount of time to be waited on and we didn't see much of our waiter the whole visit. Not only that, but the food was served just barely warm. We've been here several times in the past,... More

Food is adequate. Does not seem to be fresh but rather canned food that is seasoned in the kitchen. Can't go wrong with the breakfast or desserts though. They are good! Friendly staff.

A frequent a.m. stop when we're in the mood for a reliably enjoyable breakfast. Tons of options. Always prepared perfectly. Generous servings. Great staff. Reasonable prices. The coffee is good, and the bacon is always crispy...Can't ask for more than that!

Recently went to Sawmill Grill for lunch but ended up ordering breakfast. The food is delicious & the service was great. They have a number of daily specials if you want the regular lunch menu. I also noticed that they had a salad bar available.
