The Sawmill is one of my favorite establishments to dine at while in Edmonton. Being in Grande Prairie for the weekend we made reservations with the same expectations of quality and service that we receive in Edmonton. While the service was great the food was both a hit and a big miss. My bf's prime rib was perfect as were is sides but my steak bites were well over cooked with the taste and consistency of leather. Very disappointing. As well as my starter size Caesar Salad was large enough to feed a party of 4 and was comparable to the bulk ones offered in Costco's meat department. It's rare that I send any food back but this time I had to, it was that bad. It will not deter me from visiting the Sawmill again and it could have been a rare occurrence with this location but hopefully it brings awareness to the quality of ALL the food served to their customers.

I had the Filet & it was amazing, you can almost cut it with a fork. I also had the Chocolate Dome which was totally awesome. Service was excellent as always. The Sawmill is my favorite place to eat and I recommend it to all my friends.

We had to change our reservation from 3 people to 5 people and it wasn't a problem. We also got everything the way we ordered it- even the Blue Rare steak!

The lobster was over done so they replaced it, steak had no flavour, was very expensive for a mediocre meal.
The music is tacky
We did have excellent service and chicken Oscar was good

Very quiet due to re opening during the pandemic. This is probably our new normal! Food was good though prices have definitely gone up. Service was great, timing was off as I felt we were rushed as our meal came out very fast.

waitress pleasant, music too loud people were trying to talk over it,service slow, food was lukewarm, I know prime rib is not piping hot but veggies and potato and gravy should be. Drinks were slow coming. Everything was adequate but very disappointing compared to our previous dining experience at this establishment. Given the circumstances they are currently operating under, I will probably give them another chance, perhaps they are short staffed but then again they were only at half or less capacity. I would neither recommend nor not recommend at this time, give our experience and let them make up their own minds.

Birthday x 2.
Our server was great.
Food was good.
The servers had masks on. Table spaced perfect.
Cleaned the debit machine at every use.
My suggestion is have a designated person to remove dirty dishes off the tables not the same server serving and bringing our food and drinks to the table (I’m assuming they wash their hands after removal of dishes but I couldn’t see).

The undesirables. 1 Reservation request were not met or even noticed. I had to inform the waitress when I was paying to leave of the occasion. 2 Pesto pasta should not burn your face off. 3 The double baked potato was old. Trust me I know I have my chef papers to.4 Scallops wrapped in bacon were deep fried.


The good. Wait staff are great. The special ( with the exception of the burning pesto) was very well prepared. The prime rib was cooked perfectly for my taste and the chocolate dome desert was fantastic.

With some attention to detail the Sawmill has the potential to be a great place.

Had a reservation, was called to confirm reservation. Once we arrived we waited for 5 min to be seated, no one was working the front desk. Multiple waiters walked by in the lounge and didnt address new guests waiting at the front. Eventually walked around to find someone clearing tables and asked for assistance.

She seated us and found us a waitress. From there on we had great service but it soured the mood to be ignored at the beginning.

When the food came out it wasn’t that hot we also had a new waitress I know she was learning but I had to go track her down to bring back the sour cream bacon bits that kind of stuff when I asked to top up water she only topped up one person did not top up all four people just a learning thing

The manager had to kick homeless people out of the washroom while I was in there. One steak came out Med well instead of med rare, the server was literally running and panting when she came to our table and wasn’t listening to what we were trying to order.

Another good experience at the Sawmill in GP. We were greeted by smiling faces and the table was perfect for our group of 5 adults. The drink delivery was prompt. We ordered a few appetizers and they arrived very timely manner as well. We did not feel rushed between the appetizers and the main course. The server was very friendly and efficient. She kept a keen eye on our drinks and explained the food choices that we made very well. The food and drink prices are in line with other establishments.

Yes & No. Food was amazing. Our server was very kind. But she was given 2 big tables which resulted in poor service for our table & the table next to us had complaints to. To which the gentleman had called out the server in front of everyone.. I also ordered the Holiday Special drink with rum & milk. Generously, our server removed this from the bill because the “sugared rim” was pure salt. 😳

Although it was busy when we arrived due to Christmas parties and dates. Having placed our orders around 8pm many other guests have left, with many vacant tables. It took close to a hour for our prime ribs (which are already cooked) to arrive

We have never had a bad meal at the Sawmill but the other night was really disappointing. Our server was awesome but the service was very, very slow which I think was an issue from the kitchen not the serving staff as our drinks were fast, and our server checked on us often. We each ordered an appetizer and a main course. For our main course we all ordered steak and not a single steak came out prepared the way we asked for it so after waiting for a very long time, 3 out of the 4 of us had to send ours back. I opted to just have it taken off the bill vs being prepared again because at that point I was annoyed. My husband and friend both had theirs remade and were given a discount of 10% off their meals. For a night that cost myself and my husband $130 (that's after mine was removed and his was discounted) I would expect far better value. My potato skins (appetizer) were undercooked, my twice stuffed potato was overcooked and really dry and my steak wasn't edible. The only good thing I ate was the veggies.

We phoned the restaurant for a reservation and were told they were full and no tables. I went online using OpenTable and immediately found many available times for a table. It was disappointing that we had to do this. The wait time for our meal was well over an hour with a 530 reservation and the restaurant was not full. We were a party of 6.

My husbands prime rib dinner arrived cold we sent it back. It was put in the microwave and brought back over cooked. My steak was over done and a bit dry. We ordered tea. It came barely lukewarm. We asked for hot water. It was a little warmer but not much. The waitress was friendly and the desert was great. We spent over one hundred dollars for this meal. We were disappointed. We won’t be back.

As always, had a great time at the Sawmill. Food was great as usual. Our server was new but she did a good job. Admitted when she didn’t know something instead of trying to answer. Atmosphere was nice.

I took my grandson for Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner and it was one of the tastiest meals I've had in ages! The pumpkin soup was unbelievable, the turkey roasted to perfection, the garlic mashed, the veggies, the homemade gravy and homemade stuffing delicious, and the pumpkin pie was scrumptious! All in all, a wonderful meal!
