Large Portions

The place was very busy and there was only one waitress but she was very attentive and we were not in a hurry. The food was good and the portions were very large. We enjoyed our food,were given a free delicious dessert, and both of us ate dinner the next night from the leftovers.

We are riding our Harley and stopped for a late lunch. Small Greek salad was more than plenty and 2 could easily enjoy. Deluxe hamburger was also good and included the works along with FF, cole slaw and pickle. Chicken Orzo soup was delish as well. Great service.

Went to Michael's Diner for the 4t of July and had an AMAZING meal and time with my husband and nephew! Awesome service, awesome food, and the prices are equally great! The lobster bisque is so yummy! I got a chicken caesar salad (I think the dressing was made in house)...soooo good! Very, and I mean, very large portions. I... More

This is a diner -- so they have diner food. Vast menu, something for everyone. Prices are reasonable. The food is not great, but not terrible. It's OK. Big portions. The one thing, however, that knocks this restaurant down is that it has some of the worst service I have ever experienced at a restaurant. We've been here many times,... More

If you ski and are looking to not leave the mountain, Michael's is right on the main street of Windham. Some would call it a Greek diner. I just call it good, old fashioned comfort diner food. We live about 10 miles away and we go year round for pancakes on a Sunday morning. Everything about this long-established diner takes... More

This Place is obviously a locals restaurant. very busy for lunch. Has counter service as well as tables and booths. Basic diner ambiance. Waitstaff was very friendly and diligent. Now for the food... excellent food, large portions, great taste, great value... the daily specials are more then worth the cost.

Been here a few times. Skip the pancakes that are not homemade. Breakfast sandwiches may be the way to go. Lobster Bisque was so over spiced it did not taste of Lobster and was replaced. Very good Caesar salad and most of the food is decent. I thought the charcoal grilled burger had a little too much charcoal flavor for... More

I'm sure this place has good food but unfortunately when my friends and I entered we were greeted with odd looks and we imminently felt uncomfortable. A gentleman kindly asked what we would like to drink. A couple of my friends ordered some beers. After the waitress saw we were pouring the beers, she had a heart attack and started... More

Everyone should have access to a good diner. Is this fine food - no. It is good diner food. Is it a luxurious setting - no. Its a diner. I've eaten here many times - always stuck with basics. Breakfast. Burgers. Salads. Club sandwiches. All have been very good at reasonable prices and friendly service. Other reviewers seem to compare... More

Windham is a tricky place to eat during busy holiday times. Places are booked out or have 20+ minute waits. Not ideal when you have hungry kids with you. We tried to get a table at a few places before trying Michael's. No reflection on Michael's - it's in the middle of town and we started at one end and... More
