If you visit the Lakes Region a visit to Sawyers should be on your list. I recommend the loaded burger, the famous lobster roll and finish with a fresh ice cream shake. If you can still find room the ice cream is where to be.

I had high hopes when I saw the sign boasting that they make their own ice cream. Although it was very creamy it was overly sweet. The mint chocolate chip was kelly green and didn't have much mint flavor.. I don't understand why they put...More

A family tradition we've been going to Sawyers for more than 30 years. Great cream and food served by local staff. Ice cream quality and variety will please. Try the black Raspberry. Yum. Or traditional vanilla with hot fudge. See you next summer!

Read rating on Lobster Rolls as being "excellent ". Truth is on my visit it was one of the poorest Lobster Roll I've ever had. Lobster meat was overcooked, extremely "rubbery" and virtually taste less and way over priced. This was the only item I...More

Sawyers is a must visit, whether it's and ice cream, tuna roll or fried seafood platter, the food is consistently good. Not the least expensive place in town, but clean, professional and delish! My favorite order is lobster roll, pint of fried clams, black and...More
