Make sure you get reservations, especially for the Tuesday night specials. Small restaurant. As weather gets warmer there is also seating outside on the covered porch.

A real nice luncheon place. The menu is limited, but more than enough choice for lunch. We both had the BALT which was quite a large meal, in fact both took half the sandwich away for later. Well prepared and a delight to eat. Service was great.

Their mac n cheese with buffalo chicken is awesome. My wife had the salmon and it was good. The atmosphere is nice. Reservations are recommended because it is rather small. One point to improve: check drink glasses more often.

Located in a vintage building, Saw Shop Gallery Bistro was a wonderful find. My family has a vacation home in Lake County, so we rarely, if ever, eat out. Local art hangs on the walls and the tables are set with different salt and pepper shakers. At one table was Mickey and Minnie, another a bowling pin and ball and... More

Always a nice meal in a pleasant atmosphere. It tends to be crowded so plan ahead. It is possible to hear one another...I find mist restaurants very noisy. I always enjoy the desserts.

While touring the wineries around Clearlake, we inquired about good places to eat in the area and the SawShop Bistro was mentioned by some of the wineries staff. We decided to try it and were surprised at the available cuisine. During dinner one of the winery staff showed up with their party too. The SawShop could stand up to the... More

We had dinner on Friday night and lunch on Sat . Obviously we really enjoyed the experience. Glad we made dinner reservations because it's a busy little place. I had little steak fillets but can't remember what the dish was called but is was delicious! My husband had Fish Marsala ..something we had never seen but it really turned out.... More

Simple but creative menu. Service was well meaning but not efficient. Cute ambiance and central location. Bring low expectations and you will be delighted.
