The Windrow is ok. I'm giving it an "average" rating, because Trip Advisor doesn't have anything between "average" and "poor". We've had a couple of breakfasts here. Not sure how they managed it, but I ordered my eggs over medium. When they arrived, one was hard and dry, and the other was runny. I suppose if you averaged the two,... More

Good food, but high priced. Nicer place to eat in town with plenty of room to seat a large group. Steaks and sandwiches with a full salad bar, and they also have good breakfast.

This restaurant catered our event. The variety of items for dinner was great. The pork loin in gravy was very tender and flavorful. Drink and a dessert was included as well as a couple of salads, a couple of vegetables, buns, and condiments. It was a great dinner for the amount of people and the style of food. The service...

I have been a fan of The Windrow for years as I used to live in Creston. Now I'm only back to visit a couple of times a year but always try to eat at The Windrow. The food is delicious and the employees are friendly. This visit included breakfast and the biscuits and gravy were exceptional! The Mexican Food... More

Sports bar with 5-6 televisions in half of the place, other half is family style restaurant. Great service along with tall beers on tap in the sportsbar section. Food is average and served in both places. They have daily specials and a great salad bar. I feel it's a little high on price but you are paying for an atmosphere... More

I visited The Windrow on Sunday the 5th. The place is clean and wait staff was very good. I ordered a Cheese Burger thinking that it was going to be a hand made patty but what I got was a previous frozen pre made patty that was a tasteless piece of crap. I will not be going back.

The cheesy beef sandwich and the cheese cake slice are to die for!!! The waitresses are friendly and very nice. It's a nice place to gather and have a good time with friends and family. It's a place where everyone cares.

Took family of 5 there while down visiting daughter. Went for lunch, cost us 67.00 for 5 burgers and fries. Terrible food. It tasted like those premade dense burgers you buy at Cosco or Sams Club in the stack. They didn't have flavor and dry. The fries tasted like fish. The waitress filled our tea glass with coke without even... More
