The Windmill is famous for their hot dogs, Chili, Pierogies, Potato Pancakes and Wurst Platter, but there is so much more Pizza, Burgers and many specialties only at the windmill, one of my favorites is the RONI ROLL: deep fried pepperoni and mozzarella stuffed bread ! Just awesome, nothing fancy, just great food and fun, if you are going to... More

We go here often. Whether its for happy hour or a night out with friends the food and beverages are always great ! And of course my all time favorite is John's "sloppy burger". Make sure John makes it though as he is the grill cook with the talent !!! Friendly atmosphere, great bands (that start at 8PM) and a... More

The Windmill has been around forever. Their claim to fame was their chili dogs. New owners took over last year (2013) and redid the menu and supposedly the interior of the place. We went there for their chili dogs. The inside still looked the same from years past and their chili dog was just that, a hot dog with chili.... More

Had dinner here...arrived around 6:30 and was seated immediately. Waitress was nice but did not seem familiar with what accompanied the dinner specials we ordered. Once that was settled, food came promptly and was delicious. Had the prime rib dinner which came with roasted potatoes and mixed veggies. Really good. Atmosphere was nice and comfy...band that was live really good.... More

My husband and I really enjoy going to the Windmill. The food is good, love the burgers with Chili and the salad dressing they use is delicious. The grilled chicken sandwich is also delicious. Very casual and inviting atmosphere, they make you feel like part of the family. Mary Lou, the hostess is so sweet and Joey the bartender always... More

When the new owners took over they vowed nothing would change and they have stayed true to their promise. It's still a fun place with lousy food. Except for the hot dogs which are great. My party of 8 ordered a range of dogs, sandwiches and a few entrees. The entrees were way over cooked with very little flavor. The... More

Typical Vazzano arrogance. Mediocre food served by staff who give the impression they're doing you a favor.
