I used to love coming to windmill diner, the quality of the food has significantly decreased. The wait staff is a hit or miss. The interior looks drab and outdated. Would definitely choose other diners in New Milford over the windmill.

Windmill has been my favorite restaurant for breakfast for years. The hot sausage special used to be awesome. What happened? I went several weeks ago and the sausage was dry and flavorless. The rest of the food was cold. The service was slower than usual....More

Typical small-town diner but without the charm. Food was not cooked to our liking. Service was so-so. Would not recommend.

Stopped on way to flea market. Clean as a whistle. Easy parking and not jammed. Waitress was attentive and quick. We both had omelets. They were good. Home fries could have been a bit crisper. Coffee was fresh. Would recommend.
