Great breakfast in a small town. Our server was delightful and found time for us in a busy restaurant. I had a breakfast sandwich that was made better by the hint of garlic in the butter.

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, so we decided to try it. Good choice. I got the Soledad Pesto Melt and my husband got the rib eye. Food arrived fast and tasted great. Service was fast and friendly. Price for dinner for 2 (an appetizer, a sandwich, an entree and a dessert) came to about $50 before tip.

I haven't been to this particular establishment in a while but when I have visited I had no complaints. This was a sister restaurant to what used to be Windmill in Gonzales (now Luigi's). Overall the food is decent with an acceptable atmosphere. Not too many choices in Soledad so this falls in the top 3 spot. Basic american food... More

This restaurant has good reviews, and we wanted a good lunch before hiking at Pinnacles. We were not disappointed. Driving down the California coast makes you hungry as you pass the many acres of fresh fruits and vegetables being grown. The food was very good, and the salad ingredients were so fresh that I am sure they were picked locally... More

My wife and I travel a lot between San Jose and Paso Robles on Highway 101. If we get a late start from San Jose, we are always hunting for a place to dine. We have visited The Windmill Restaurant multiple times and have enjoyed it each time. Their menu is total comfort food. The other night I had the... More

The only reason for the 2-star: when paying, the manager finally took the wings off the bill. That's after ordering a 12-ounce ribeye medium rare, getting the first one done and the second medium-well. Waitresses only comment was: I don't cook. Manager tried to talk me into a 3rd trial, however, I went with the wings. Two types on the... More

Stopped on our way through town and enjoyed a great breakfast. They had several Mexican style breakfasts that were quite good. Standard breakfast fare like hash browns and toast were also fresh and hot. Glad we stopped and gave it a try.
