This place is between the tracks and across from the train station. They have the best pizza. The lunch time pizza special is a great deal. 2 slices and a drink for $5.00; add $.75 for a topping. These aren't the ordinary slices; they are 4" by 8" each with a thick crust.
Just back from another good dinner. Had the #28 combo. It's one of the larger combo and I had plenty to eat. The staff is always friendly and prompt. The refills were always there before we needed them. This is a hidden oasis in North Raleigh; very quiet and relaxing.
Another good choice to pick from. The dining area is a bit smaller then the other Tap Rooms and the decor is leftover from the previous place. But the french dip sandwich was good. We had a large group and that seem to cause the service to be slow.
It has to be considered a neighborhood place if you meet some of your neighbors. It still has the feel of the bar it replaced. And it has the great food of the other Tap Rooms. We had a nice relaxing meal and stayed long enough to see most tables turn over. They have a diverse crowd. And everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Last Saturday after attending a banquet, we were looking for a place to have some drinks and hang out a little longer. Everyone though Sawmill was a good choice.
Whether going out for lunch after church on a Sunday, dinner with the kids on a Friday night, or a place to have a few drinks, Sawmill is a good choice. The food is great from the many choices of burgers to the interesting choices of entrees, I haven't had a bad meal. Once, my order got messed up and without complaining about it, the manager came over and comped the meal. Now that's customer service.
We got there on the late side of the dinner rush and it was still busy. Just got a burger and fries. This was my first time to one of their locations, but I had been warned so I got the small burger and the large fries to split. The large fries were enough for three of us. While waiting for our order, we did battle with the plastic cups and lids for the ketchup. The lids won. But the employee who was keeping the dining area clean was very helpful (and shared in our humorous situation.) He told us they had packets behind the counter. If the crowds continue even after the newness wears off, I think that they should have taken up more of the building for dining area. The experience was good and so I'll be back but not during their rush hours.
I have eaten there twice so far. Every time I mention it in conversation, the response is "where is there one around here?"
I can count on one hand the number of prior visits to any one of their store before this. The food and service has been good. Every order requiring a vibrating pager is a bit unusual. I gone with a group both times and not all of the orders come out in the same amount of time. Last time, we were half way through our meals when the last person got his food. Over all it's good and some different to the north side.
We have made Lynn-wood Grill are regular stop after our monthly meeting. A groups of us end up filling up a table or two. The wait staff has always been good about taking care of us. This past Tuesday, they ran out of the mystery beers and are waiter was quite apologetic. It wasn't necessary after all we were drinking mystery beers. We usually get a large order of wings. They are good about spitting the order into two sauces. The wings are good sized and crispy. For a neighborhood bar, this meets all the criteria and then some.
