For years my husband and I have done dates and special occasions at this restaurant. Best place for steaks in town! Plus Becky is the best waitress in town too!

This restaurant was recommended to us and... More

I have been to this restaurant three times in the last year and each time I was recognized, welcomed and treated kindly. The steaks are wonderful and the baked potatoes are happily drowning in butter and deliciousness. The salad is pretty basic and the desserts are hit or miss, but I come for the steak and baked potato so not... More

I lived in Wenatchee in 1989 and The Windmill was my favorite restaurant. I was anxious to see if it was still as good. The only thing that has changed is that they now take reservations so you don't have to stand in a long line to eat there. The food was as good as I remember and the wine... More

The food was out of this world - exactly what I wanted. Food and Ambiance is certainly important but the service tops it all in any resturant. Becky our server seemed like she was always there, never had to ask for anything as she was ready on everything. Like I said the food was great, but my friends and I... More
