Will won't disappoint - whether you are looking for a destination meal or dinner to take home; he's got what you need. Great spot to take the kids or meet up with friends. Relaxed, laid back and delicious - eating here is a total delight.

Stopped in Windmill Market this past week - thrilled to find it home now to Will Hughes! Has always been one of my go-to spots with friends for lunch in Fairhope, and now promises to be better than ever. Farm fresh, locally sourced ingredients in Will's wraps, sandwiches and salads. Tried the Sandpiper this week - delish. Fun healthy children's... More

There are several food bars and interesting shops in one location. They are currently changing the layout so I don't know what will be there in the future. However, it us usually an active fun atmosphere especially lunch on Friday when there has been live music and outdoor dining

Had a delicious lunch at the Windmill Market. We were greeted by the very friendly new manager who enthusiastically told us about the daily live music and "the best carrot cake you've ever had." For lunch I choose "Dennis' Salad", which was a very tasty salad of micro greens, grains, a myriad of textures (including sprouts)and included grilled bites of... More

Great fresh new ideas in the restaurant. The beef brisket was as good as any in Texas. They seem to be implementing some new ideas in the market as well with wine sales. I think I'll go back again this weekend. I stopped by at closing time and Dennis kept the place open so I could get dinner. Very positive... More

I came in before they officially opened one day, but they made me food anyways! The cafe has always been great, but the new owner has exciting plans in store. They are huge on cooking with fresh local ingredients and it's a good place to catch some live music.
