“Chicken Alfredo is out of this world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

We are locals to the area and frequent The Windmill. The Chicken Alfredo is one of the hottest items on the menu, and it's no wonder why. The grilled chicken is seasoned to perfection and served under a bed of pasta Alfredo, with a side of baked potato and green vegetables. You also get fresh baked bread and your choice of a salad or soup with the plate. Delicious!

I will make a negative comment about the dessert. The chocolate cake is dry and seems like it could be found in your grocers freezer. The apple pie was okay, nothing special. Served cold, although I had asked for hot. There are other desserts offered here, but from those that I've tried, it wouldn't be my first choice for dessert.

“Skip this one !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

The positive things I can say about the restaurant: The restaurant looks good and the food looks great.

However, this seriously had to be one of the worst meals...ever....We were pretty hungry and neither of us ate even half our meal.

Chicken in the enchiladas tasted like it came out of a frozen dinner. The sauce was mediocre. The avocado had that "almost time to throw out" sour aftertaste

The chicken fried steak (Southern Dinner) was lukewarm with very little flavor and the gravy was....tasteless.

Bummer to spend almost $30. This got top 4 in Soledad by other reviewers. Makes me scared to eat anywhere else in this town

“Convenient dinner option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Nice full service restaurant offering a reasonably extensive menu and full bar. My wife ordered a tuna melt that was very good and which I had half of the next day on the trail (so I can vouch for it being very good) and I had an enchilada supreme dish that was also very good. Service was a bit slow, especially getting the bill but otherwise a very satisfactory visit. Very convenient to the Valley Harvest Inn next door.

“Bit better than Denny's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

Good for a quick "non-fast food" lunch or dinner. Pretty extensive diner menu and good burgers and salads. Service is pretty quick too.
