My foundation meets at the Windmill monthly and the staff and food are always great. Convenient location near 101 freeway.

lovely ocean view. Excellent steaks and shrimp. had both indoor and outdoor seating. was a little to cold to be outside the evening we were there however the food and atmosphere were very good. not really a children's place but they did have a very limited menu for children

The food was very good. The Gonzales Citrus Salad was delicious! The time we waited for food could have been better, but the serving staff was attentive and helpful

We had a nice dinner here after hiking in Pinnacles. We got pork chops, steak, and a couple of entree salads. Very generous portions. Even after a long hike today we didn't finish it all. Tasty food. I appreciated that the pork chops came with a nice side of steamed veggies along with the potato, and a nice side salad.... More

We stopped in on our way to San Diego. The menu is great and reasonable prices. I had a BLT, delicious! My husband had the Gonzales salad; everything healthy in it! Very friendly service.

We were seated quickly and the waiter was very attentive. The food was average, nothing outstanding and nothing to complain about either. I did think they were slightly overpriced. Meals average about $20. This restaurant does offer a very nice menu with a good selection. If you don't want fast food then this is your best choice in Soledad.

After seeing the food pictured on Tripadvisor, we chose another place for dinner and fully expected to eat breakfast at our adjacent motel. Since the motel breakfast supplied minimal cold items (2 cereals) we walked into this establishment. Breakfasts run around $10-$!2 each plus beverage, so we split a spinach and onion omelet. Grilled onions were still crisp and the... More

I wasn't expecting much as Soledad seems to be in the middle of larger towns, but this restaurant was pretty good. Good service, plenty of room and a pretty extensive menu. Served Breakfast, Salads, Burgers, Sandwiches and a variety of dinners. They also had homemade apple pie. I opted instead for their chocolate cake which was very rich and exactly... More

Great breakfast in a small town. Our server was delightful and found time for us in a busy restaurant. I had a breakfast sandwich that was made better by the hint of garlic in the butter.
