Best Breakfast Joint in town, but don't expect much more than good down home cooking. The service is friendly, the coffee is bad, and they expect cash.

I took my young daughter as a special treat. I stood in line for a while to add our name to the wait list. The line never moved. We finally figured out that you just wait in line until you are next. I thought all others were registered so now had to go to the back of a much longer... More

Don't let the line out the door deter you. It goes fast. The staff is very friendly and calm even though the place was jammed. We had the birds nest - eggs/bacon on top of hash browns, the veggie omelet and cinnamon roll! We had to bring the cinnamon roll home- it was huge!

A small place on the main drag, the line was long for good reason, it was delicious! So much I couldn't eat it all, love the mom and pop type eateries.

I had the 3 Star burger with fries, my hubby had the double cheeseburger with fries, and they were cooked perfectly and so good. The fries were also perfect. All the food was served HOT. The Rasberry Ice Tea was also very good. Service was excellent. Very reasonably priced. Our bill was less than $20.00!!!!!

We had to wait in line about 15 minutes, its a tiny little place, but it was so worth it. The food was incredibly good, fast service, friendly staff. Incredible cinnamon rolls, wow! Id go back again in a heart beat. I had an omelet and my friend had eggs over easy with all of the fixings. I had also... More

The waitress was very pleasand and accomodating! For a family of 5 the booths are a little tight to dine. The food was good. We had steaks and burgers for lunch. A classic with reasonable prices.

At least once a month my girlfriend and I meet for breakfast and for years at the top of our list... The Windmill Restaurant. However, my last 3 visits in the past 3 months or so have been horrible! Last Friday they had a packed house as usual, and we patiently waited in a short line for a long time.... More

We stumbled on the Windmill Restaurant on 8th street and found it clean and nostalgic. We ordered the meatloaf and it was very good as was the service. We'll have to stop back for breakfast

We got there just before a mad morning rush so we were pretty lucky. The breakfast food was really good (home made, feel good type of food).
