As Traveler’s Island said, “There’s really nothing quite like The Sawmill Taphouse and Grill in Chemainus, or the Cowichan Valley for that matter. Unassuming from the outside, The Sawmill starts with an urban vibe and marries that with Chemainus town history to bring a lively, warm and vibrant dining experience with quality made-from-scratch food.”
