I lived in Wenatchee for many years and always considered the Windmill the best restaurant in town. We came back for a short visit with family and friends and decided to show my wife what a real steak tasted like along with a piece of homemade pie. Unfortunately, it was not nearly as good as I remember. The steak was overcooked and not the best cut. The chocolate cream pie tasted like a store bought pie. I remember such good food years ago so I will cut them a little slack and pass it off as a bad day, maybe the cook was sick. Anyway, hopefully it will be better the next time I am in town.

Took my Aunt and Uncle out for a special birthday dinner. The food was excellent and the service was great! Our waitress provided my Aunt with a birthday treat and sang Happy Birthday! Highly recommend it!

My teenager wanted a good steak dinner and this was recommeded to us. It was expensive but not impressive. I've had better for less so probably won't go back.

We came here for our son's birthday dinner (it has become a tradition) and it was perfect. Food and service ( Becky is an awesome server )were both great and the owner even sang Happy Birthday to him, we'll be back soon!

When I was yuounger i use to ski over there and I always ate at this place. I had friends that would drive over There and back to eat at the Windmill. I have not been there for probably 12 years and it has new owners. I saw that they are #3 on Tripadvisor. Well they shouls be #1. Wonderful steak and wonderful waitresses.
