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

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

The service, the special meals, all worthy to try. So much food for a low price, feels like home. Don't be intimidated by the not so fancy "diner" look.

Service was friendly and prompt, even when the place was full on a Friday evening. Had supper there on two nights during Thanksgiving week. Some of the best beef short ribs I've ever had-- unfortunately not a regular menu item, but was on their "specials board". There was nothing to dislike at this place!

Love breakfast at Michael's Diner...whether we sit in and enjoy pancakes, waffles, eggs or whether we pick up egg, cheese and ham sandwiches to go, they are tasty, fresh, and HUGE! Another Windham establishment we love and visit each and every time we are in town!

This place is only fair, not a great atmosphere, the owner can be loud at times, the breackfast is fine I suppose, not the best place but then I'm used to diners in Manhattan, this place has plenty of parking in the back, that's a plus I feel!

During a great autumn riding day, decided to stop for lunch. Based on the waitress' recommendation had the homemade lobster bisque. It was excellent, especially considering this was a diner, very creamy, well seasoned, and plenty of lobster. Then decided on the Windham burger and fries. Again very pleased. The burger was juicy and tasty. The ample amount of onions... More

We were looking forward to a meal but were disappointed. We ordered the lamb which was one of their specials. They did give huge portions but we could barely eat it because it looked so unappetizing. We took the lamb with us not to hurt their feelings but threw it out later. I think it's a good place for a... More
