We stayed at the Weathervane Inn so we wanted to try the restaurant. I must say it is a quaint little restaurant on the water. The food was average at best. I ordered the planked fish with a side of green beans. It was almost tastless. Very disappointed for the money spent.

We were on a golf trip with four couples. On our last night of the trip we usually like to go to a place with a little higher quality than what we'd had all week. We were blown away. The food and the service were exceptional and combined with the atmosphere it couldn't have been nicer. It was a fabulous... More

Good drinks and food in a nice location on the water. Enjoyed the two dip appetizers and chowder. Relaxing atmosphere.

Food and Service were both good. They promptly moved us indoors when a bee decided to Beefriend us. No hassles.

We had reservations for a rainy Saturday in the fall. We were seated immediately next to a window with a lovely view of the river. Our wait person was prompt, friendly, knowledgable and when my son asked for something that wasn't on the menu, he took care of it without skipping a beat. I had the local morel mushroom soup...

Had a great meal on the porch. The fish chowder was great. The chicken sald sandwich was good. My husband got the planked whitefish and is still raving about how good it was. I would recommend sitting on the porch if weather permits. I loved watching the drawbridge go up and down for the boats!

This was my second time dining at this delicious establishment. I was fantastic in 1995 and still amazing in 7/2014. I enjoyed the white fish along with the rest of my family which was light, flaky and melted in your mouth. We had a nice table with a great view of the drawbridge and canal. Don't miss this jewel while... More

Great food, fabulous view of the channel, fun watching the boats go by. Waitress was good, could have been a little better but I think she had several large parties and got a bit overwhelmed. We were in no hurry, though, so it wasn't a problem. Prices were reasonable. We have eaten there before and will again if we are... More

Good food and great location on the outdoor patio for happy hours. Good bloody marys. They warned us about the yellow jackets but we didn't have any problems with them.
