My family has had a place for the last 30 years last 30 years in The Valley. Although many things have changed I am glad that saw mill and it's great quality breakfast has not! Cannot wait to go there next week after Thanksgiving! My...daughter grew up eating the biscuits and sausage gravy and she is definitely excited about next week!More

Appeared to be the only place open for breakfast on a Tuesday. The nice guy at the awesome coffee shop recommended them. We’re we ever pleased! Homemade bread was delicious and the food was fresh and hot. I had breakfast sandwich on that homemade bread!...Yummy! My husband had a large breakfast with toast to spare to eat with jelly. Friendly staff and fair prices. What a great find. We will be backMore

We really like the atmosphere of this place. The people there treat you like the good part of your family :). I am a pancake junky and they have good ones. We have never been there that we didn't feel welcome. We are sad when...we are in town and they are closed. We would recommend the Sawmill if you like to go to family Restaurants, this is not a chain place. It is a hometown restaurant.More

Good cooking. The restaurant in on the second floor. It is informal. We were here for breakfast and it is obviously a local restaurant and folks at surrounding tables are friendly and will invite you into conversation. Nothing fancy. Waited a bit for service and...I would have liked a coffee refill; but fair price for solid food.More

Its hard to find a good restaurant when you are traveling. We were so glad when we stumbled across this place when visiting the falls. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. The old time corn bread was excellent. Thank God for good home cooking.

We went upstairs, ordered two meals (open roast beef sandwich w/ mashed potatoes, and chicken tenders) Then we made a quick stop at the Shop n Save. When we returned, our hot meals were bagged and ready for pickup. Came to twenty dollars and both...were very tasty and satisfying. We would go there again except they are closed WednesdayMore

Good quality food, reasonable price, good service. If you want a hardy breakfast this is the place to go! Highly recommend the Chip beef gravy with home fries!

We have been staying at a cabin at Blackwater Falls S.P. for a week every winter for more than 30 years. Mostly cooking for ourselves, going to Sirianni's once for pizza and maybe the Purple Fiddle for music and a dessert. But we always have...breakfast out the morning we leave. We had been going to the Flying Pig but it closed, the Blackwater Lodge is as I write this is closed for renovation, and Bright Morning is as I write this only doing takeout. So we decided to give Sawmill Restaurant a try. We walked in. There were three wait staff. One had no mask and the other two had masks that were not covering their noses. We walked out. We will never go again.More

We were looking for someplace to eat when we were going to our final destination and saw this restaurant. We went in and had a short wait to be seated. The waitress was very friendly and the food was delicious. We would definitely go back...for more.More

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
