I happened upon this place on Valentines day. They are under new ownership (?) and were advertising cocktails. According to the sign out front.

They were absolutely SLAMMED so I took a seat at the bar. The staff, including the owner we fantastic. I ordered a series of cocktails (very solid) and the oyster appetizer (it was GREAT) and then had to decide on dinner. Problem was that everything I wanted to eat was listed and priced for two (duh-V-day!). My waitress agreed to serve me the steak and aides I requested. AWESOME! It was great!

I will be back, in Portland, OR this place could charge double and still be full every night.

While this nice little restaurant can be spendy, it has fabulous food. and wait staff is very friendly and at-tentative to your every need. Try the clams in sauce...incredible and makes you hungry for more. Local wines selections are outstanding for those who drink.

As some have stated, the place is dated, and quaint. However, the service is spot on, the food is good, and it is comfortable. Others think it is pricey, but I paid about thirty bucks for a good steak, salad, potato, and trimmings. No ala carte add ons. I did not think it was over priced at all. If you are looking for a steak in Wenatchee, this is a good choice.

New ownership brings back the Windmill or old. For the best steak in Wenatchee this is it. Not the cheapest steak but definately the best.

Good service and great food. I love the steaks and enjoy the pies. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. My favorite place for a birthday treat.
