The Sawmill Saloon is a huge place with several rooms, each having a different feel but all getting food from the same kitchen. The first rooms are on either side of the large bar and decorations fill the walls and hang from the ceiling. Crowd noise fills the background but it was still easy to talk with companions at the table. Service was efficient and super friendly. The good sized menu pizza, burgers, salads, sandwiches and a selection of snacks/appetizers. They also offer a Friday night fish fry and a Saturday prime rib.
We were there on a Friday night for pizza but got an order of their Broasted cod to try. It is lightly coated with house beer batter and pressure deep fried to be light and crispy on the outside, tender and moist on the inside. It had a nice light coating but the large flake fish was very slightly dry rather than moist. It came with a nice tartar sauce for dipping and the pieces were good sized. It was acceptable.
Pizzas are a thin crust variety and several combinations were offered as well as toppings individually priced for you to create you own combination. For pizza we tried the Sawmill Special which has pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, onion, green olives, black olives, mushrooms and a five cheese mozzarella blend. It came in a 12 and a 16 inch size. It was a thin crust that stayed nicely crispy even with all the ingredients. It had plenty of cheese and a good sauce. The ingredients blended nicely for a tasty pie.
The Pizza Singalo was a thin crust with sweet basil pesto and olive oil topped with fresh tomatoes, red onion, spinach, fresh mushrooms, roasted garlic and an Italian mozzarella blend. It only came in one size and you could add a chicken breast if desired. We had it without chicken. It was nicely herby with the pesto adding a nice strong flavor. Again, there was a good amount of cheese and the crust remained crisp throughout. Another nice choice.
