We stopped for breakfast while on a long weekend trip. The restaurant is fairly clean but dated. The wait staff were all very friendly and attentive. They recommend the home made bread and wow was it good. I had the sausage egg and cheese sandwich...and sausage gravy, both are good selections. The coffee is good and hot and I highly recommend this restaurant.More

Good food. Service was as good as could be expected from just two staff members in a bust dining room.

Cozy atmosphere, very friendly service, reasonably fast. Good selection of meals on their menu. Tables are social distanced.

We picked up an order to take back to our lodging. I can’t comment on the experience inside the restaurant. However we had two delicious pieces of pie (berry and coconut cream), beef vegetable soup, really good grilled cheese on thick fresh bread and a...super good cheese steak. In summary, it was very good. And by the way, OPEN. So many places on M-W were closed on a summer week (during a pandemic).More

I hate to say they seem to have gone downhill in several ways. The first thing I noticed was how ignored I felt. It took several minutes before anyone even acknowledged my presence, which finally took place from across the room. They couldn’t even walk...remotely close to ask if I needed help. I finally received my order. After I was given my food I was ignored again. I stood there with my credit card in hand as they took payments from others and was talking to everyone but me. While I waited to pay I noticed my order was missing items and they did correct it after I brought it to their attention. Again after giving me my missing items I was ignored. While the waitress explained to another customer that came up behind me about her bill. How she had charged her for someone else’s table and how she had greatly overcharged her and I still stood there waiting. Finally, I had to tell the lady that I needed to pay my bill. Even though it should had been perfectly clear, since I hadn’t paid yet and was standing there with my credit card for about 10 minutes. Though the taste of the food was good, the portion sizes have decrease by a lot. What should had been a hamburger steak was nothing more than a hamburger patty. I had also requested my hamburger steak to be plain and absolutely no gravy on any of it and I still found mushrooms and onions on my “steak”. Luckily, dad ate those. Mom’s Sawmill dinner bowl just didn’t seem like an entree in size. She didn’t even taste the mashed potatoes. I don’t think I could bring myself to go there again and most likely I won’t be recommending it any longer to anyone either.More

We were staying at the hotel it is inside of and grabbed breakfast before checkout. Fast, friendly and good food for a great price.

I had the Hot Roast Beef and I was great. And the service is above average and the prices are very fair for the quality and quantity of food. I would definitely recommend checking this place out for a quick meal.

This place is exactly what you’d expect a breakfast joint to be. Open early - great coffee and sweet waitress. You can’t go wrong when you see all the locals eating here.

Very quaint, "mom and pop" type of place. They seem to cater to the older generation, as they close early and serve menu items like open faced sandwiches and pie with ice-cream. Their sundaes are enormous! Would definitely recommend them if you tend to steer...clear of trendy, flashy restaurants.More

By far the best place in town for inexpensive eats. Waitresses were friendly and knew the repeat customers and locals. Great coffee and choices for a hot meal to start your day. There is a handicap entrance on the backside as there are stairs leading...up to the restaurant from the front entrance. Credit cards welcomed here. A great place to socialize with the locals or other travelers. Kid friendly.More

I had beer, wife had wine. They seem to have a full-service bar.
