Sawyer's is the place to go when in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Their seafood is outstanding. The fried clams are superb. The owners, and employees, are always very respectful and helpful to their customers. They have home made ice cream! Can't beat that!...More

Great lobster rolls. Pricey but worth it. Their ice cream is made on site, yummy. Been completely for years Their onion rings alone are worth the trip

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.

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!

with scallops, shrimp, fish, whole belly clams, fries, and those shore onion rings, one of the best fisherman's platters in the Lakes Region. Pricey, and worth it - splits well among two or even three. Clam chowder was much better on this visit than the...More
