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

For a town of about 20,000 this restaurant is definitely local flavor. The building is old and the interior is plane country but reasonably nice and clean appearing. It's a safe environment with good friendly service. I ordered their 8oz Prime Rib, loaded baked potato, green beans, and a Pepsi, all for about $18.00 (not bad). The Prime came out... More

While the building is showing it's age and the food and service has declined over the years, they still have good steaks and decent appetizers.

Large family party room for 30 on a Sunday afternoon. Our server was pleasant and trying very hard---solo. My only quibble would be the management or lack thereof. No bussers or food runners, and if there was an expeditor, not very good. As it was orders were taken and entered in segments such that we basically ate in 3-4 separate... More
