This place has the best Mexican food ever! The Real Eato is to die for! They also have other stuff such as great steaks & prime rib! There is a bar also.

Sat night the place was empty, staff seemed more interested in the Nebraska football game than us dining. Appetizer cheesy corn dip was probably the best food we had there. We had a burger, steak sandwich, and Asian wrap. The Asian wrap was good, steak in the sand which was incredibly tough & drenched in a marinade that made the... More

Meal was pretty good. My husband said his fish was one of the best he had. Service was good also. Will go back.

I understood from my friends that this place at a sketchy reputation, but I decided to try the chicken-fried steak one night. I knew something was wrong from the first bite. Turns out the meat had gone rancid. The staff was kind enough to make me another, but it was just as bad. It's unfortunate, because the side dishes were... More

Wait staff was not real pleasant as was our server as well. Food was poor. I would not recommend this for anyone. Hopefully if I go back, it won't take mich to beat this experience.

Everything I've had here was good, but nothing was great. The menu consists of steakhouse fare, plus BBQ, smoked meats and Mexican foods too. Steaks are good, Mexican is OK BBQ is very good. Service is good. Overall not a bad choice in Fremont.

FOOD: Food was good. Our waitress was very good. The price of the food is a bit high for what you get. Service: Our food waitress was awesome. However, the bartender from the front is horrible She has the worst personality She is rude and that's an understatement. I can't believe they keep her around. Alcoholic beverages : They charge...

We have been going to the Wooden Windmill for over 20 years and not a whole lot has changed with the physical building. Indeed, it could use a bit of freshening up. Having said that, if nothing else, it is consistent. The menu is large with everything from BBQ, to Mexican, to steak and potatoes. On our most recent visit,... More
