The food service and preparation was excellent.but the hard wooden benches are very uncomfortable even though they add to the old fashion flavor of the place.They need to start serving a better quality of meat especially for the price.I know they know how to make a fabulous steak but you...

It's been a couple years since we ate at the Windmill and have always enjoyed it so we decided to go for a special occasion. The one word to describe the dinner is disappointing. I had the small filet and my husband had the New York. The steaks were ok but way overpriced, At least the cost includes a salad,... More

We just finished dinner and all was great. The service was exceptional, our waitress was knowledgable, courteous and very pleasant. We ordered an appetizer of whiskey peppercorn Dijon steak tips and it was very tender and tasty. My husband ordered the fish and chips, I had the filet mignon and prawns and both plates came with a salad (plain leaf... More

Delicious steaks, friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend it if you haven't been there in the past year. Give it a try,... More

Cleaned up and repainted but best of all the food is outstanding again. Have been here 3 or 4 times since the new owner took over and every meal was great.

We recently returned on the occasion of an anniversary and birthday combined, and had a terrific experience. The meals were superb and the service was simply outstanding. Our hostess Becky was unbelievable as we had been out of country for a few months--she recognized us immediately and took wonderful care with us on a special eve.

Our friends recommended The Windmill while we were visiting. The service was excellent. Our appetizer, prime rib with caramelized onions and mushrooms, was delicious. I had lobster and steak. Both were perfectly cooked. My baked potato was probably the best I have ever had. I don't know if it was garlic butter on top, but it was superb. My husband... More
