While visiting family we stopped for lunch at the Sawmill. We have eaten there before and have never been disappointed and we were not this time! The pork chop and home made vegetables are the best! We also had salads that were enough for two,...More

We are regulars at SAWMILL. Home style dishes give you the feeling of grandmas kitchen. Turkey dinner is my fav. Early bird 3-5.
