Food is good, Service is terrible

We were seated by a miserable man, and our waitress wasn't much better. The food however was good, and we were served relatively quickly. I love diners, so I liked it just for that aspect. It served it's purpose since it was really the only place around. We were going to the Elephant's Trunk... read more

All the food is good here but we like breakfast the best. The hot sausage special is worth the trip.

My wife was hungry after a morning of plant shopping and traveling. The Windmill was the first place we found north of Danbury. The only thing good about the place was it was clean. Service was slow. The waitress did not care much, but worst of all, they charged per glass for ice tea and soda. $2.25 for an 8... More

I ordered potato skins bacon on side and got home to Danbury to find salsa slopped over everything. No side container just slopped and soggy on everything! Who would do that? My husband got turkey club cost $10 and got about 10 French fries. Terrible! So mad about the potato skins

Typical tried-and-true American diner. Delicious pancakes, eggs, and other selections. Dinner is great, too. The best part about the place is the warm, old gentleman who always welcomes you with sincerity and a smile. He always makes it a point to greet my two sons as if he were expecting them, "Hello, brothers!" When you can't decide on where to... More

Long story short manager(owners son) was the rudest nastiest person I've ever encountered in any eatery from the moment we walked in. When I asked a waitress if there was someone else I could speak to she was just as rude. Turns out that's his sister. Our waitress was very sweet and was belittled by her boss. My family and...

Windmill has been a New Milford Staple for generations. The food is decent. Not great but it doesn't pretend to be something that it is not. Soups are always a good choice though they tend to be very salty. They are home-made. The place is always super-clean and when business is slow we always see the wait staff wiping and... More
