Still Great

This Weathervane occupies what used to be an old A & W Root Beer stand. I think it was the second Weathervane after the original in Kittery was so successful. The Weathervane chain expanded into Vermont, Massachusetts, and New York State in the 70s and 80s. At one time there were at least... read more

We stop in from time to time and the food is decent. The overall restaurant could use an over haul. They run some good kid specials so that works for us.

The seafood is wonderful enough to bring home a doggie bag, very fresh and wait staff goes out of their way to help. A very nice place to have a GREAT meal. Will return

We went twice: first time with our american cousins, then we came back to eat clams and lobsters. We loved fish, our daughters loved burger.

My wife and I have neen to this location, as well as others, and the quality of the Dover NH location is simply no longer there. About 6 months ago we went and ordered the fish and chips. The fish had a slight amonia smell to it, not being really sure about it we left and researched it on the... More

Nice place, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Prices very reasonable and the food is great. Two entrees and non alcohol drinks came to $45.00. Excellent service. Will return.

Weathervane is consistently good. Friendly staff. Decent prices (seafood is expensive everywhere...) Drinks are really yummy too. Never disappointed.

We usually enjoy our meals at this restaurant however on this night not so much. The dining experience in the front room was less than desirable. A party of 10 had been seated prior to our arrival and they were so loud it was hard to hear our server whom was also handling the larger party. Other parties hurried up... More

The food is well above average for a New England seafood joint. The service is friendly, not pushy. Located on a quiet stretch of road south of Dover, NH, it's easy to find, and just about 4 miles off exit 6N on route 16. They have specials daily, and between 4 and 6 they serve $1 oysters in the bar... More

Food was great....a little pricy but it was seafood!! The staff was very friendly and very helpful with a family member's treenut allergy. The young woman that helped with that (not sure if she was a hostess or manager) was great as was our waiter. They went over all menu items that she should stay away from. Nice variety of... More
