Hungry after a long trip from home, I decided on the Windmill. It was around 8pm on a Saturday and I was seated immediately. I simply ordered the New England Clam Chowder and the Pastitsio. The Chowder was exceptionally good and loaded with clam. The pastitsio was, well, very decent but it wasn't yia yias; my Greek mother in law... More

Family style diner. No outside seating. Food was fine. Wait staff attentive although had some confusion with menu. There are two different prices on menu for certain foods. Make sure you specify which one you want.

Tired and hungry after a 6.5 hour avg 45 mph trip from home I opted for the Windmill. Diners are part of Americana. Lining US Highways coast to coast and dominating the northeast, diners usually don't disappoint. The Windmill is... More

We stopped for breakfast and loved the menu with lots of choices. Food was very good and the prices were quite decent. There is nothing spectacular about the place, but it has good solid food and nice decor. Servers were helpful and on the spot. Glad to have such a nice clean place to stop along the road.

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.
