This place was fabulous! Food was great, atmosphere was cool, and the service was unmatched. Note to owner: Becky and team all deserve double-digit raises. I will eat here again and recommend it to my coworkers who end up traveling to Wenatchee. Nice job!

If you've never had a steak or never been to a steakhouse, this may be okay. But even then, it's doubtful. The meat is substandard for the prices charged. They put a sauce or seasoning on the steak when there should be none. Came plated with sweet carrots on the same plate, again, where there should be none. The end... More

My wife has wanted to visit the Windmill Restaurant for years based on recommendations from some friends, so after a golf outing in the area we decided to give it a try. I was a bit apprehensive about trying it after reading the mixed reviews from others, and the recent changes in ownership. The Windmill is a small restaurant; I... More

Amazing food but for a very high price! excellent service. The inside was really dark but cozy. Our only downside to our visit was the seating was acually horrible and very uncomfortable, we were sitting in booths that the seats had lost the support, kinda like a old truck stop (you know what that feels like) we felt rushed to...

The menu is not extensive but there are enough choices that everyone in our part of 4 was able to find something they liked. The service was good and the food was provided quickly enough to make the meal very pleasant. The nice bottle of Walla Walla wine was a good match to the ribeye steaks two of us chose.... More

The Windmill is the best place to go in Wenatchee for a steak, and the staff is dedicated to making sure you always have the best dining experience. Save room for dessert!

we found ourselves in Wenatchee, with a craving for steak. I had a faraway memory of the Windmill, so we decided to give it a go. From the initial phone call answered by Becky, to the first sip of an incredible lemon drop, to the succulent filet (for me) and prime rib (for husband), we felt welcomed and pampered and... More

I had heard this was "the" steak place in Wenatchee so my wife and I stopped in one evening. It is a small place and the booths are small and tight. Fairly uncomfortable for me although I'm a larger guy. The steak was fine, a bit over cooked, but decent flavor. Pretty pricey but I knew that going in.... My... More

The quality of the meat seems to have gone down. 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...
