Went to Sawmill on 1/26/18. Very good fish fry. Lightly battered fish, not greasy at all. Served with a nice broccoli salad and fries or baked spuds. There are MANY excellent fish fries in Hayward area.. this is very good.

Great broasted chicken. So good they can run out, so call ahead to see what nights it's on the menu - then go early.

The Sawmill Saloon hits all of the classic expectations of a north woods watering hole. The service is classic Wisco. The menu is a surprised rather veg friendly. We had the classic cheese curds which were perfect and we each had our own pizza. I was really surprised at the variety of options for the pizza, including veg options. They are even gluten-free friendly. Plenty of beer options and classic Wisco cocktails. The setting is north woods.

We also had a nice hearty, pre-bike packing ride breakfast. Not a lot of options but what I had was quite tasty. Eggs, hash browns, toast. Perfect.

It also happens to be the place for check-in for the nearby Lenroot Lodge!!! Well worth combining the visits.

Unbelievable waitress - I thought perhaps it was a recorded prank. She stepped squarely on my foot twice (it was tucked under the table) and yet apologized only the first time. While our party of four waited 30 minutes for fried fish dinners, she belatedly shloshed a pitcher of luke warm water on the table (unlike our request, it had no ice or lemon). Later, when asked for a box to go, she physically offered a stiff-arm and said "No. That will have to wait". My niece paid in cash, and was asked if she wanted change back: The waitress was exasperated by the positive reply, looked in her cash bag, and announced in a not-so-nice way: "You will just have to wait awhile, until I can get to the bartender who has more cash" The food was decent enough, and I note that it was a busy night (but time must be made for at least a little courtesy).
