I just went to this diner, sat at the counter and it was literally about 12 minutes before anyone even acknowledged I was there. That waitress then gave me a menu and I had to wait another 5 minutes for her to come by to take my order. After ordering very crisp bacon on my side order, when it came... More

I've never been disappointed here. The food is consistently very good diner fare......great breakfasts, awesome club sandwiches and homestyle dinners. The servers are always fast and friendly so if you're in a hurry, no problem.

We just stopped at the Windmill Diner for breakfast. I used Trip Advisor to locate a restaurant close to Danbury. The Diner is located 1 mile from Exit 4. Food and service were great and we are back on the road.

Love going for breakfast. They also have great breakfast specials on the board right in front. They never push you to leave so it's relaxing at the same time.

This is a very good family restaurant with a very comprehensive menu. The service is very good and the meals are of a high standard considering the prices. There are plenty of parking spaces and there appeared to be quite a few locals as well, which is always a good sign. We would happily eat here again.

If you crave some real food on this monotonous stretch of Connecticut's I-84, The Windmill Diner will satisfy your hunger when fast food just won't do. I've had corned beef hash in many diners, only to be disappointed when they bring out that predictable, just-out-of-the-can product which has been machine ground into something resembling dog food (yuch!). I've even asked... More

Read several reviews and was hesitant on eating there. But was close to our hotel and we were in a hurry. Boy were we pleasantly surprised! Large parking lot was packed with cars (a great sign of a good place to eat) and we were greeted and seated promptly. Meal was served fast and delivered hot. We had breakfast food,... More

We had the worst meal at the Windmill dumpster Diner, their food tastes like something scavenged from a dumpster..and the whole time we were there we heard the arrogant owner, John Rountos yelling and screaming at his slave-dishwashers. good riddens Windmill Dumpster Diner.
