“Best Pizza on the Boardwalk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The home of the 24 inch pizza.
We come to the sawmill to enjoy their pizza....the best on the seaside boardwalk.
This visit was the first after Hurricane Sandy...what a change to the area. Pretty much everything is gone on the Seaside Park end of the boardwalk, except for the Sawmill.

“Loud, louder, loudest”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

It's like eating in an airplane hanger. The patron noise was absolutely deafening, with no partitions whatsoever. In all fairness, the place is in the process of rebuilding after being hit by Sandy and then a pier fire last year. It's mostly a beer and pizza joint, though waitresses do serve you. The place was packed on a Friday night, and the din of people talking was ear-shattering. Bring your earplugs, you'll need them. The pizza is good.

“Love this place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

They have the hugest pizza slices I have ever seen and they are so delicious!!! All the staff were so friendly and nice. We went out at night for dinner and drinks and we were surprised with some live music which was wonderful. The restrooms were clean, and a lot of seating options outside and inside. A great place for families and friends :)

“A Jersey Shore Institution:)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

The sawmill has the biggest slices I have ever seen and a fun family atmosphere. I am thrilled it did not burn down in the recent Seaside Park Boardwalk Fire!
