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).

Breakfast every day for four days at The Windmill was a delicious experience not to miss. Don't be put off by the long lines outside as you are generally seated in the small dining area rather quickly. If you are in a hurry, skip the line for a table/booth and go straight to the counter. First, the service. The waitstaff... More

We were looking for a quick dinner before a movie. Quick, old-fashioned diner with good food and service. Nice place to stop for a quick bite.

While traveling to Holland, the Windmill was recommended to us by a shop owner. We are SO GLAD we stopped. We had a group of nine, from seniors to a 7 yr old. We had a 20 min wait because of the large party and a tiny dining area. The wait was worth it. Our server was wonderful, cheerful, helpful,... More

This restaurant is located right in the heart of the downtown area, making it very convenient on a day of sightseeing. It has been here for many years and has won awards for its breakfasts. It is casual and family friendly. It reminds me of the diners that used to be common in many towns where the locals go to... More

Our hotel recommended we have breakfast at the Windmill - glad we did - it was excellent. Had typical American breakfast of fried eggs, crispy bacon and hash browns. Plenty to eat and done just right. Highly recommend this place!
