Typical small-town diner but without the charm. Food was not cooked to our liking. Service was so-so. Would not recommend.

Stopped on way to flea market. Clean as a whistle. Easy parking and not jammed. Waitress was attentive and quick. We both had omelets. They were good. Home fries could have been a bit crisper. Coffee was fresh. Would recommend.

Just pulled over and saw the diner! Wasn't totally sure what to expect but it was really good! Had the baked macaroni and cheese with a salad, some of the best Mac & Cheese I've had in a while! The cleanliness of the restaurant was amazing! Everything was super shiny and very well kept- you could tell they really cared... More

All the food is good here but we like breakfast the best. The hot sausage special is worth the trip.

My wife was hungry after a morning of plant shopping and traveling. The Windmill was the first place we found north of Danbury. The only thing good about the place was it was clean. Service was slow. The waitress did not care much, but worst of all, they charged per glass for ice tea and soda. $2.25 for an 8... More

I ordered potato skins bacon on side and got home to Danbury to find salsa slopped over everything. No side container just slopped and soggy on everything! Who would do that? My husband got turkey club cost $10 and got about 10 French fries. Terrible! So mad about the potato skins

Typical tried-and-true American diner. Delicious pancakes, eggs, and other selections. Dinner is great, too. The best part about the place is the warm, old gentleman who always welcomes you with sincerity and a smile. He always makes it a point to greet my two sons as if he were expecting them, "Hello, brothers!" When you can't decide on where to... More
