Great breakfast with HUGE portions! It's a small place, so I would go outside of busy mealtime hours or you will have a long wait.

We stopped in for breakfast. We were seated right away. Like most other standard breakfast spots, not many specialty dishes. Good place for a family breakfast, kid friendly. Prices reasonable, food ok.

Hi, we were driving back home from Grand Haven & decided to stop in downtown Holland for a bite to eat. We saw the Windmill Restaurant & stepped inside. It's a narrow, small restaurant with very good food. We all enjoyed our meals.

My husband and I went to the Windmill for breakfast on a weekday morning. Food and service were fast and as expected. The diner itself is pretty mom and pop-ish, kinda old fashioned with knick-knacks all over, sort of what you expect from a diner....More

We went to the this restaurant on the recommendation of my nephew. He nailed it. We all loved what we ordered, the staff was super nice, the setting cozy, and we did not mind the wait, as everyone had a yummy meal and left happy.

I ordered a cheese steak and onion rings, and expected to get a sandwich basket like the table next to us. My meal arrived on a platter because the sandwich was huge. Great value! The bathroom is teeny tiny. The whole place is pretty small,...More

We stopped at the Windmill by chance, but very glad we did! We had a bit of a wait, so you can't be in a hurry (we weren't), but the breakfast more than made up for that. Generous portions, friendly service, and very unique atmosphere....More

Give them a call and ask. We were just there and they are allergy friendly like always but didn't ask about gluten.

I would call the restaurant directly as it is too serious for a traveler to make a guess.
