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

We have been coming to The Windmill for over 20 years, and this was the best dinner ever. We had 6 in our party. Coming to this restaurant feels like being in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life".... The quaint bar, the cozy knotty pine, and the fabulous service. Now on to dinner--the steak tips in mustard sauce were a... More

Had top sirloin and 7oz fillet. Both done about the same even though we requested the sirloin at medium well and the fillet at medium. Fillet was overdone. Fortunately, the beef was of good quality and withstood the abuse. That could be a one time error, but the sides and salad were what I would expect from an old-time, less-costly,... More

We were visiting last weekend from Victoria B.C. to participate in the "Wheels and Wings Festival and Car show". We had reservations at the Windmill for Friday night as we had read that they have a really good slow cooked prime rib available. We were not disappointed, it was excellent, done the way we wanted, and extremely tender! The décor... More
