“Lousy service, poor attitude and bad wine list”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Came in on a Thursday evening to sit on their beautiful patio- waited 25 min for a server to acknowledge us. Waited another 10 minutes for our wine.... (walked in at 6:30 and got wine at 7:15) The restaurant was busy, but not so busy that efficient and friendly staff couldn't handle things.
Wine list is not great and expensive for the quality of wines... (Clos du Bois Sauvignon Blanc is 8.00 a glass)
Order appetizers as we thought it would take way to long for dinner- Onion rings were GREAT, steak bites were not. Grisly tenderloin chunks in brown gravy with a spoonful of minced garlic.
Skip this place and head elsewhere.

“Nice Restaurant”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Trying to find dinner on Mother's Day was difficult, but The Windmill came through. The drinks, food and service was first rate. Casual, relaxing, and warm atmosphere at a reasonable price.
