What Our Customers Say

Everything was wonderful for Mother’s 100th birthday Celebration! Amanda and Erika were fantastic. They had all the delicious food out on time and replenished it when required. They cleaned up and left the kitchen tidy. They even helped us take family pictures. Thank you very much for helping to make it such an incredible day.

The Sawmill team did a great job at the dinner last night. What a fantastic job getting that 1000-person group dinner in an efficient and timely manner. The ladies directing the lines at the tables were lovely, they were doing such a good job directing people and were super friendly while doing so. The food was terrific as always. Please let your team know they do an exceptional job. We attend a lot of events and they impress me every year.
