Sawmill Restaurant

Sawmill Restaurant Group founded in November of 1976, and over the years the Sawmill has grown to multiple locations across Alberta including the latest location in Lloydminster Alberta.


Every year The Sawmill group participate in the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology’s “FEASTival of Fine Chefs”. As a fundraiser for their Chef’s Apprenticeship Program, participating dining establishments are given a “mystery food hamper” 24 hours in advance. With only these items (different for each participant) the objective is to create a four-course gourmet meal for approximately 60 guests. The Sawmill is always among the best in taste and presentation.
