This is an incredible find. The menu offers many options, and several customers recommended the brisket. However, I had the prime rib and it was exactly medium rare, which is what I wanted. The flavor was rich, and the cut was excellent. It was so tender that I could cut it with my fork. Everyone in our party of 3... More

We may have been there on an off day, we sat for 20 minutes at a table and then moved to the bar so we could get served and going with our day. Typical bar scene with more fried food. I could see it being a good place to stop for apps and drinks. Not sure about going back for... More

Nice staff and helpful. Cheese curds are fantastic. Get them. Pizza crust is pre-made. Toppings are all fresh. I recommend the sandwiches.

Happened to ge going past the Sawmill Saloon at lunch time. Never stopped there before, and thought it may be a good time to do so. Being winter, we opted for the homemade chili. Very good choice. By the Sawmill is not actually in Hayward, but in Seeley which is 10 miles north of Hayward on 63.

Have visited the Sawmill several times and have tried a lot of different items on their menu and they were always delicious. We were in the mood for chicken and tried their boasted chicken dinner...great!! You get 4 pieces of chicken with choice of potato and veggies or salad. Well worth the trip outside of Hayward. Fun place to visit!

The broasted chicken of my childhood is still alive in the midwest, and among the best places I've found for it is the Sawmill Saloon (and the Moose Lips Java Bar in Seeley, WI, up the road from Hayward near the Lenroot Inn. Other good stuff is to be had in this somewhat typical northwoods bar and restaurant. Oh, and... More
