A slight upgrade from the old Windmill

Spruced-up dump that offers limited Vazzy's menu along with their traditional fare of hot dogs and burgers. The salads come in a good sized stainless steel bowl and are available with shrimp or chicken. This is my favorite menu item. The hot dogs are somehow always sub-par. Sometimes they are... read more

Great place. Comfortable, good food and drink. Nice outside patio., Nice bar area and also an area if you don't want to sit in the bar. Nice fancy, but nice. Entertainment on weekends is good ... sometimes it gets a LOT crowded during those times, but still nice and fun!.

The Windmill is an old neighborhood bar. This was a working man's place, with a German/ Polish feel. Recently The Mill has been revamped and cleaned up giving it a brighter more.friendly feel. New lighting, fresh paint, exposed brick, new flooring, redone restrooms and new seating. Now the Food. The Windmill has always been known for their hotdogs. Weather it's... More

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
