The Windmill is an iconic Jersey shore classic, regardless of location.These griddle dogs are made locally. Once cooked, this foot long hot dog is served in a lightly toasted bun. As you bite in to the dog, an incredible "snap" announces your edible treat. Toppings range from the standards,(ketchup,mustard,kraut) to cheese, chili ,,etc..fit a small fee. Also offered are flame... More

Only reason it did not get 5 stars it has not place to sit. They have sitting on roof, but not great, they have sitting at small counter, but also not real. BUT the hot dogs are Great.

Had an Excellent Prime Rib Special, to bad it is only occasionally on the menu. The decor and staff are upscale and really nice. Never had a bad meal. They are set up for big events, saw a couple weddings. It is next to a lake with an outside patio so very nice for a special occasion..

My wife and I stopped by the other day and ordered a couple hot dogs and fries. Our hot dogs were large and favorable especially when loaded with sauerkraut and the kinky fries were also good. The receipt showed we got senior dogs which meant the dogs had been cooked longer or we were showing our ages.

Haven't been there in many years, but has remained consistent. Burgers are great, Fries even better. They even take credit cards. The "windmill" came off in a recent storm, currently being repaired. Even windmill deck seating is open.
