Sawmill - Lloydminster
We went there for their Valentines dinner. Although the restaurant was busy, the service and food was quick.
Restaurant was virtually empty, left us thinking our service and food would be great. Meals were luke warm at best, one of the steaks were very tough, and corn on the cob was very soggy. The waitress was pleasant but could have been a bit more attentive and quick given wee were probably her only table.
Very pleasant atmosphere and friendly, efficient staff.
Quality of meal was generally good but the corn cob was soggy and I was given a different potato and side than ordered. I am not fussy so I ate what I was given.
Dinner with my daughter and grandkids
Very nice restaurant. We reserved and were given a location, near exit, bathroom, so some foot traffic.
Seemed like we sat about 10 minutes before server showed. Probably 5plus
Food was just okay for supposed upper type restaurant reputation and cost wise
Bacon wrapped scallops were tasty, nice sauce,
Prime rib was chewy. Not real warm as bit of wait for toppings.
Will go back
The waitress was new and mistakenly put the bowl of horseradish on our table. The server overlooking her shift notified her of the mistake right behind where my boyfriend and I were sitting, so we were able to hear the entire conversation. It took away from the mood and made it slightly awkward when a waitress took the bowl away before we had gotten a chance to take some and without asking if we needed it.
Our prime rib and steaks were not good quality
Waitress forgot part of the order
We had to ask for dessert and drink menus
Small portions for the price but the food was amazing never the less
I will definitely return especially on Special Ocassions.
Took my mother out for Mother's Day. We had not been to the Sawmill for a long time. Service was delightful, food was delicious. My husband had the " can't decide" choice, he was very happy with it all. I had the sirloin and it was tender and cooked to perfection. Mom had the roast beef and other than being Too big she loved it.
We are from the Edmonton area, and as usual - the Sawmill did not disappoint. What a wonderful Mother's Day - the food was fantastic, and the service was the same. We will definitely come again, when visiting Lloydminster.
We went to the Sawmill for the Mother's Day brunch, and we all agreed that it was great. There was a great variety of salads, main dishes, and desserts with a free mimosa for each of us. We were not rushed nor was the service slow. I would highly recommend the Sawmill in Lloydminster.
its always a pleasant place to eat, and everything is great.
Booked s mother’s day reservation for Saturday night. Arrived on time only to be told we were going to be seated in the lounge because they were setting up for mother’s days brunch and the dining room was full. Almost walked out and went somewhere else. That is why we booked a reservation, finally got seated meal was awesome as usual. But this almost didn’t happen,
We were a little disappointed, we’ve never had a problem before. It seemed a bit busier of a night our only complaint was we got our salads and meal at the same time. Maybe more staff would have been a good move our waitress was clearly a little overwhelmed. However the food was good as usual.
Excellent service. We arrived a little early for our reservation. We were seated right away. Service, food and ambiance was very good.
Tory and the staff do a fantastic job, and the food was very well done. Enjoy being a regular customer
For Valentines Day. The menu was a bit pricey. For $50-70/person the food value was just ok. Was seated as soon as we walked in the door, but we waited 20 minutes for our drink and appetizer order to be taken, which was taken by the Manager. The Manager helped us more than our server did. 10 minutes later our server finally brought our drinks and took our food order. Our dinner salad showed up 10 minutes after our drinks which showed up 5 minutes before our appetizer. The meal was good. We ordered the 7 oz steak. It came with 2 carrots and a piece of broccoli. The baked potato was done perfectly. My steak was done the way I like it but my wife’s steak was a little too rare. Our server was virtually non existent. I had to ask passing employees for drink refills and for anything else we required. The meal come with desert which we got to go. Because our server was not around we did not get bread brought to our table, which we realized the table across from us had gotten. once we were done our meal.
On a positive they do accept interact tap, but only for $50. Which wasn’t enough for our bill of $119. I had forgotten my wallet at home and was able to pay the bill in 3 different transactions using my Apple Watch
The prime rib was tough and stringy this time. Service was good and the portion was more than enough
We were dissatisfied with the New Years menu that was available and we hoped to order from the main menu but were allowed. Our waitress was very slow and seemed to be annoyed with our existence. We never were asked if we would like a refill on our meal and it took 40min for our meal to arrive making us late for the show at the Casino. We were there for a total of 1.5 hours!!
Will not be back for a group over 4 people, it seemed to be too much (there were empty tables and booths in the lounge where we were seated also) not ran off their feet
i took my wife and mother in law out for my wives 40th birthday. it was a great evening with great food. the waitress was really nice and did a great job. all of us left satisfied and had a great time.
Good food, vegetables were a bit under cooked (beets) could offer some smaller size options
Great prime rib and service. Location is a bit isolated, so don’t worry if it feels like you’re driving out of town to get there!
Everything was delicious for date night! Ive heard mixed reviews regarding the steak but finally friend the filet mignon and it was delicious ans cooked to a perfect medium-well as requested. I usually have the Cordon Bleu which is also usually top notch, but I'm glad to say I tried something different. Our server was friendly and provided great service.
A little to no attention was given to myself and my date after we were seated in our reserved table. The drinks served took time let alone ordering them. The waitress dropped off our complimentary warm bread saying she was sorry as it was well after yhe drinks were served. The food was delivered by a young male who put his thumbs across both of our plates, his shirt sleeve undone one side, looking disheveled. I had to ask for sawmill sauce as it was not offered or served with the food. The service was not good but the food was so it was the bonus for the meal.
Good food however our server was inexperienced and service was the reflection of that inexperience. For the cost of my meal I expected correct orders, prompt service and drinks. I was a disappointed.
Excellent Thanksgiving meal, Fantastic and friendly service!! Thank you!
We were hoping to have more of a traditional thanksgiving meal. We had booked online and knew nothing of the evening thanksgiving specials until we had arrived at the restaurant. So the brunch was not quite what we had hoped for but the food was still good.
It was great food, service and all around experience. It was only myself and wife this year for thanksgiving and the Sawmill did it up great. Thank you for the great night out. It was exactly what we were looking for. If we are around for any other holidays and something like this is offered again we will fore surely go again.
I will just send a private comment on sawmill lloydminster directly. Not satisfied with the entire customer service. But the food is still great same as the usual experienced i have had from the past.
Only problem that we encountered was that the restaurant had no record of our booking (done on line earlier that afternoon) it was early,before the restaurant got busy so they had no problem finding a table for us.
We went for Mother's Day brunch, and really enjoyed the selections available.
Excellent service & the food was great. Would recommend for any occassion.
Food was great, our server had issues,could use a bit more training
We went to celebrate 3 birthdays in our group of 8 and were asked on making our reservation if it was for a special occasion to which we answered yes. We ordered an entree for each of our 8 people, 2 bottles of wine, and desserts. At no time were the 3 birthdays mentioned....definitely a disappointment
I decided to partake in an early romantic valentines as I would be out of town on the date. Everything was excellent and I am pleased with my choice
The steaks were fantastic unfortunately the prime Rib was tough. This was a disappointment for the person that ordered that particular dish. It's a nice place but service was not very friendly maybe an off night . But I will return for dinner again.
