Okay, I know you don't go to a restaurant for just service and drinks. Love the cheese/chips before the meal. My mom used to order the 1/2 order of the Realeato. Im not much of a mexican food guy. I usually have a sirloin steak or 1/2 a chicken. Chicken is always great, steak is a hit/miss on the cut... More

The Mexican food here is actually pretty good ( the Real Eato in particular). It's not authentic, but it's good. The steaks are not good at all. The cuts of meat are not great quality and after trying them multiple times, I would never order another one. The service here is rather slow. On a Friday or Saturday night you... More

We brought a large bus group here. There were 48 on the bus who all ordered off the menu. There was only one server to handle the entire party. Unfortunately was not a great place for us to bring a large group

I've been to Wooden Windmill a few times over the years. I have yet to have what I would call a "great meal". When I go out to a sit down restaurant, I usually like to have a steak or Prime Rib. I've had both here...and everytime, the food tasted old and gristly. I don't go here very often for... More

Unfortunately I ordered Mexican.......what was I thinking? The ground beef was black in color. It was so unappetizing looking my dinner mates asked "what is that"? I will not be returning or recommend this eatery.

Service is poor and the food isn't worth eating for free. It's dark, dingy and dirty looking, but the flies don't seem to care.
