Food took too long to come, which was unfortunate because it wasn't even that good... waitress was gone for half an hour and didn't check on me to see if I needed anything... expected much more from this restaurant....

I went with my daughter for breakfast. The meal was good, except the French toast was a little soggy. We weren't too happy with the rushed service either. As soon as we sit down we are asked what we want to eat. We felt like it was a race to get our meal done, especially because the waitress did not... More

Stopped for a quick late lunch. Service was friendly and fast. Exactly what we were looking for. Don't know what the rest of the menu holds but I'd go back.

I was on the road and it was getting late, a lot of local places were already closed so I was happy to find this place still open. The confusion here starts with the name. One sign says Windmill, another says Main Mill, which mill is it? The waitress was sweet, but a bit dingy. First I asked for unsweetened... More

I met a friend in Danbury for lunch. The service was excellent. My friend had a burger and fries. I had pork chops with a salad and squash. We both had tea to warm up. Our meals were prepared quickly. We stayed in the diner for a while enjoying conversation. The servers were pleasant, professional, and helpful.

A colleague of mine recommended this diner for the Fish & Chips special on Fridays. I decided to check it out and they did not disappoint. The meal was prepared fresh to order and the fish and the fries were both hot and delicious. They managed my expectations of the wait time and they were courteous and welcoming.

I was there the other day at 2:30 in the afternoon. No one there. I asked the waitress if I could sit at a particular table. Her Response, 'No you sit here! ' pointing to a small table. Then I asked if I could sit by the window. Her Response again, 'No you sit here! ' pointing to the same... More

Staying nearby so I stopped for dinner. The service was cordial and prompt. The food was excellent. The staff is very caring and attentive. The portions are large, almost too much. Liked it so much I went back the following night!
