We have enjoyed the Sunday buffet very much over the years for quality and value for money - less so at lunch but still worth stopping in. The steak and prime rib is excellent at dinner. The service is pretty good if not absolutely attentive. (At least the young servers don't ask "How are you guys tonight? or "How are we tonight?" Not the best openers, particularly for diners of retirement age.

Upon arriving at restaurant
Upon arriving at restaurant was very busy (7;20) checked in and waited for our table. After 30 Minutes still no table and the person who was seating the persons gave our table to someone else, which upset me gratly. I voiced my disapproval and in short time they found us another table.
Our server was absolutely incredible and very friendly,funny and attentive.The restaurant paid for the drinks due to the delay and the desert for the birthday girl was on the house. Must apprecviated and would recommend to some.

Our waiter Mike was outstanding.
Our waiter Mike was outstanding.
Billing is very complicated for large groups and they are unable to split bills easily - which is crazy. The front end staff were rude, all four of the women we dealt with wre short tempered and extremely rude, both in their verbal exchange with us as well as their facial expressions.
We had a very large group celebration and it was sad to end the night on the sour tines while trying to pay our bill.

One of the best
Superb dining, staff care about your experience, management is on the ball. I took my wife to this restaurant for her birthday, she had the best margarita in a while and a steak to die for. Crab cakes were delicious.
Very obvious these folks know what they're doing and strive to make you happy.

Mothers Day Brunch
Thank You to all the great staff for making Mother's Day Brunch Terrific! Great food, service and all at the regular Sunday Brunch prices! Demonstrates the class of the Sawmill chain of restaurants and ownership!

Found using the online reservation very quick and easy to use. Will most definitely go this route again. There was 5 of us and 4 had the buffet. Pleasantly surprised by the variety of the buffet and enjoyed by all. The food from the menu was very good also. An enjoyable experience from the reservation through to the food and service. Will be back again soon. Thanks.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We found the atmosphere to be very welcoming and pleasant. The service was very efficient and unobtrusive. A large (and fresh) selection of hot brunch items combined with an extensive salad selection served to make our visit a very enjoyable dining experience. All this combined with a delicious dessert selection made our time at the Sawmill time well spent.
One minor criticism, the addition of a Latte to your menu would be much appreciated.

We went to this restaurant to have a small dinner celebration to celebrate our wedding with our family. We had family members of all ages (2-92) and they catered to us all and were super friendly. I would recommend going there for anyone celebrating a special event or even for a just cause evening.

We always enjoy the Sawmill - especially for group meals - to celebrate employee birthdays (they ask for it). We can count on great food and presentation; as well as lots of seating space.

Best Salad Bar In Town!
Great food and excellent service from Johnny will guarantee us to return for another memorable dinner with family.
Thank You for a really nice evening and the special discount for the birthday person was the icing on the cake!

I like the Sawmill better than the Keg. The salad bar has good selection and the prime rib is delicious.

Good Food for a Great Price
The buffet was the unanimous choice for our table and we all agreed it was a great choice - and the price could not be beat. A nice variety of salads (although some were not as fresh anymore - the tomatoes were not too great). The choices of the main meal made it hard not to overindulge. I stuck with the Roast Beef which was terrific. Another person at our table indicated that the braised pork was very good. Service was good. If anything, it was a little noisy - a very popular place with many families enjoying Father's Day. I liked the seat we were given - it was a booth but was open and airy with natural light.

Great Father's Day Buffet
We were 4 adults and 1 child (6 yrs). I had reserved online for Father's Day and had requested a specific area which was accommodated by your staff. We all had the buffet and were all pleased with our meal. Numerous choices. If there was a customer in the restaurant who could not find something they liked for their meal, they must have indeed been picky!

We were there for our daughter's birthday. The server was well versed with the menu and was very helpful and pleasant. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
All our steak orders were cooked perfectly as requested, and they were delicious! we got the chef's featured dessert which was apple pie waiter's service was outstanding! they were very patient and attentive. We got open table points, Sawmill loyalty card points, and $25 off our bill as a gift to our birthday friend! I will recomend this restaurant and will certainly be going back! Great value for the price =)

On Aug. 5, our group of 5 came here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The place had been renovated & was quite lovely. Altho' the server was attentive & took our orders quite quickly, we had a long wait for our meals to come noting that other guests who had arrived after us got theirs first. That MAY have been b/c I had asked for my steak to be well-done but still... When our orders came there was a mix-up, so I had to wait for my meal which didn't arrive until everyone else was half-finished theirs. 30% was taken off the price to compensate tho'. The food was very good, but the gravy was SO salty I could hardly eat it. Dessert was great & so was the wine. The prices were also reasonable. Overall a pleasant evening, despite the glitches.

We all had a craving for prime rib dinner and we were pleased in the selection and cut. Biggest Yorkshire pudding I ever seen. Topped off with a red wine and good friends very nice night out.

Never Been Dissapointed
We go to this one a couple of times a year the food and service has always been above average.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. Everyone's meal was tasty and done perfectly. Service was very good - the manager came by twice to make sure all was well. This is a great place for larger groups - very spacious.
Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Very nice Sunday brunch
We enjoyed taking our inlaws to the Sunday brunch. Nice selection of cold and hot brunch items. Service was very good. A little awkward to climb stairs with a full plate and drink but nice, nonetheless. For those with mobility issues, you may have to sit in the lounge. Juice service would be nice at the table as opposed to being part of the buffet. With full plates it's challenging to carry a juice glass as well. Coffee carafes left at the table would be a nice touch as well. I'm not sure if menu service is available on Sundays but would be a nice option for picky children who only like one or two brunch items. Delicious pastries and coffee.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
While our food was good and we appreciate that you are noted for your beef we feel you should have a couple of vegetarian entries on your menu and your appetizers. The salad bar is one option but not everyone likes to have a salad when others are enjoying a dinner entre. Our vegetarian guest was very dissapointed. All our waiter could recommend was the salad bar. We would also like to see your nutritional values on your menu. I was frustrated having to go through the website provided. I would only recommend your facility to meateaters.

Nicest of the locations
I have been to all of the Tom Goodchild's restaurants now and this is by far the nicest. Food was good.

Exceptional Food and Service
Dined on an extremely busy Saturday evening. Several groups of 8 or more in our area. Noise was moderate, and not overbearing. Our server and his support staff were exceptional, as was the food. Excellently prepared and presented beef dishes, with a small but extremely tasty dessert selection.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We often come and we are never disappointed (with this location). The food is of good quality; the staff is friendly and efficient.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of variety for a group dinner
We were in a group where some wanted the buffet, some wanted entrees with salad bar, some wanted entrees without. The restaurant had lots of choice; everyone was accommodated and the meals were lovely.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The dinner was great but the menu needs to have more variety instead of mostly seafood
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Oh so good!
The whole experience was oh so good! The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is appreciated and, moreover, the selection of food at the lunch buffet is extraordinary. I have never been disappointed at this Sawmill location and will continue returning with great anticipation each time.

Great Gathering Spot
Excellent place to get together. Location is central and easy to access, at least for my family and friends. Food was great and ambience was nice but not stuffy. I will be back!

28th Wedding Anniversary
Once again my wife and I found ourselves at your restaurant for another anniversary dinner. We rarely go any other time because it is such a special place and a special time for us. We have never been disappointed with anything. The food, service and especially the ambiance on a cold snowy night truly make it a night to remember. This is and always has been a special place for us and hopefully will be for many more anniversary's to come.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
H and I dine out often and will return to the Sawmill soon, as we do not see why we cannot recreate the great experience we had.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the second year I've brought my daughter and my grandson here for my daughter's birthday. I found this year to be better than last year as the music was not intrusive so we were able to have a decent conversation. It was nice to see that they now have a children's menu.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Steak would melt in your mouth
The prime rib was superb. The steak was delicious. With such beautiful presentation and wonderful food we were pleasantly surprised at the affordable price! Our family has also been here for brunch and the choices are phenomenal. The Sawmill is truly a neighbourhood Gem!
