We were told this was a great place, looking from the outside we were not impressed. Inside, how cute, quaint, and old world charm. Food, service, was top, and they did everything to make our visit like an old friend visiting.

We have enjoyed the Windmill for many years! Our only complaint is the booth seats are not very comfy!! A 'secret' is they have a couple of tables in the back with comfy chairs :)
