This is a traditional restaurant, with standard items (mostly fried). Not the kind of place I would normally choose, but the kind my grandmothers took me to when I was a kid, more than half a century ago when overcooked salt pork shops were the norm. Prices are reasonable. For the mobility impaired it is important to know that the street behind the motel/restaurant offers direct entry into the restaurant; entry from the advertised sign requires climbing a flight of stairs.

Have been coming to Canaan Valley every summer for 15 years and this is by far the best breakfast I have had. Can't believe it took this long to try. Had a chance to sample the French toast, biscuits and gravy and the breakfast sandwich. All great and the homemade bread is a delicious nice touch. A very simple atmosphere and great staff. This will be out breakfast spot in CV from now on.

We met here to have breakfast with family. It's an older place but it was clean and friendly. We were able to pick our own table. I ordered the big breakfast, 2 eggs, bacon, home fries potatoes, toast & coffee (ask for homemade bread for toast) and it was yummy but way too much food for me. My meal was $8 ish without tip. My family ordered french toast and pancakes they too enjoyed their food. It's a very, very casual nothing fancy local restaurant but still a great tasting breakfast. They take credit cards, minimum $10 which is not the case for all local restaurants in Davis

If you want quick friendly service this is not the place for you. It took 45 minutes to get 2 turkey club sandwiches. One sandwich had two pieces of turkey and the other had 6. Avoid at all cost !!! Not worth the wait. This place is so slow a turtle could work faster. It looks like a dump (with boarded up windows) and it really is.

The Sawmill is an older facility but the friendly staff and delicious home cooked style menu and food will have you returning time and time again. We try to stop every time we are in Davis. I can't pick a favorite menu item as they are all exceptional, the pork chops are amazing, the sausage gravy and biscuits are to die for. Servers do not let your tea glass stay empty long and the coffee is excellent. The front entrance will require climbing stairs but the rear entrance will let you enter on the dining room floor.
