The meal was very good better than the last couple of times we ate there the only thing that wasn't
as good was the salmon was kind of fishy tasting everything else was perfect Awhile back I told a friend
to try the saw mill . Sadly it wasn't one of the good nights to have dinner there hopefully your meals stay as good as our last meal was . I will tell my friend to give it another chance We all know most people don't mind paying a little extra when it's a great meal.
Thanks again for a delicious Dinner

We have been to the buffet at Spirit Mountain Casino a number of times, and thought that this would be similar. How wrong we were. The food was edible but mediocre, the selection was poor. I guess this casino does not draw that many people. The $46 plus tip plus an hour of tie is something I will never get back. We will not return.

This is the third time we have eaten at the Saw Blade Buffet, and it has been consistently excellent each time. We plan to return in the future.

It’s a buffet at a casino what can you expect. The place is clean the staff attentive and friendly (except for the guy serving the prime Rib, he acted like he didn’t wanted to be there). The food is average for a buffet (bland).

Thanksgiving dinner - the tips was included in the meal but once we received our first drinks we never saw our waitress again.....she avoided our table. we had the same waitress a week earlier and she was fine and we left a very nice tip. i am a big fan of tipping and wont go again if the tip is included. everyone else at the resturant was great!

The buffet experience was very easy, once we realized we did NOT need to be standing in the VERY long line outside the Saw Blade Buffet. Signage was a little lacking in that the "reservations" line sign was not easily visible. Beyond that, a lovely experience. Food was pretty darn good. They serve a turkey roll vs carving a bird, but it was tasty. I tried the pork, but wasn't impressed - over cooked and dry. HOWEVER, yams, dressing, gravy and cranberry sauce were pretty spot on and helped to make the experience wonderful. Plenty of dessert options as well as hot chocolate. We're already planning to do it again next year.

The only thing was the serving of ham. It was rather slim. Other than that it was great!

The service and food were great. Had a reservation at 4:00 and was promptly seated. The prime rib was outstanding as was the salmon. We’re looking forward to going again.

Our family of 4 enjoyed it. Most impressed with the Prime Rib, it was excellent. We also enjoyed the salmon and salads.
There was insufficient stock of clams and shrimp when we arrived, and did not see them restocked but it may have been due to the demand. We have dined before and will come back as it is the best buffet in the coastal area that we are aware of.

Nice complete buffet offering Prime Rib (on Friday’s/ Saturday’s) seafood, Chicken, and dozens of various sides! Value for money paid is good and all the offerings were tasty except the Fried Chicken which was extremely over cooked and dry. Service was OK for refills on drinks and removing used plates, etc. Would definitely return.

Quality of food and service is poor. We ordered a beer to have with our meal. Waitress approached our table just as we started eating to get money for the beers. Had to pull my wallet out mid bite. What a pain!

Our first time to the Mill Casino's Saw Blade Buffet (we went for Mothers Day) and we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was!! There was a nice variety of food choices that were all very good and the service was excellent. We will be returning for the Fathers Day Buffet!!

Too crowded and the reservation system was confusing when we got there. We were seated right next to the cashier which was very awkward.

The food wasnt very good. The eggs benedict werent cooked thru. The muffins were raw and so were the eggs. The turkey was dry. The mac n cheese was not edible. It tasted like coagulated Velveeta.bThe bacon strip was rough and rubbery. The salads looked like they were premade weeks ago. The omelet had raw egg running on the plate. The hot apple crisp serving plates were in a chiller. The chocolate cake and pumpkin pie were good.

We were impressed by the variety of food as well as the quality. Excellent. Only suggestion is to include different types of lettuce at the salad bar. Our server was excellent!

For the amount that I was charged to feed 5 people I would have expected a larger selection and better quality food, there is no doubt that the service people that work there are not to blame for the value/menu so this is not a reflection on them strictly the restaurant. The food selection was sparse.

We have eaten at many casino buffets that had prime rib. However, the prime rib we had at The Mill Casino Saw Blade Buffet last Saturday night was the best prime rib we have had in ANY restaurant ever. It was tasty and very tender. I have to admit, I went back for thirds!!

Our waitress didn’t pick up our plates while we were there. Food was not very good. Prime rib was over cooked. I only ate prime rib, peel and eat shrimp and a salad. Nothing else looked appetizing. Seven Feathers has a much better buffet.

If was small but good, I wish you would of had prime rib that night instead of a little piece of beef, but all in all it was good. Just sorry we won't be back, because we will be moving to Spokane in May, also would be nice to have more variety for kids when they come to eat because my son would only of eaten a couple things from the buffet.
The Waitress there was a great!!! Can't remember her name though

Prime rib buffet was excellent...food was prepared perfectly especially prime rib...salad bar was fresh and amazing with many choices...There was a great selection of foods available and menu items were hot and flavorful...desserts were good, but vanilla ice cream was empty. Made me sad. We loved our dinner though.
