Food & service was good; don't expect a coastal view

While this little stand-alone restaurant in a strip mall area lacks any charm or view, the food was good, fast & hot. Granted, we were there at 1:30 on a Monday, so any lunch crowd was gone. This Weathervane does what it should - fresh seafood at a reasonable price.

I love the homey, local atmosphere at this place, and the friendly, down-to-earth customer service. I often order lobster here when I'm visiting my sister. The prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious. Suring the summertime, there is a yummy ice cream stand next door. This time I noticed that they had a happy hour with $1 oysters.... More

In the past, the meals were very good. However, prices have increased. The sides were limited to one along with my grilled salmon dish so I chose my fish with mashed potatoes. My guest's fish & chips dish appeared as though the food & chips were thrown on a dish that was too small for the meal. The waitress appeared... More

My husband and I go to the Weathervane in Dover, NH quite often. We have been visiting Dover, NH for many, many years and will continue to go back as the freshness and great taste never change. The other seafood is great also and we love the coleslaw that goes along with the meals. If you want great fish go... More

We go to the Weathervane in Dover NH every time we are in New Hampshire, usually once a month. The staff are courteous and fast, we never have to wait. Food is great and is always fresh. You have to try the fish chowder, every other chowder will pale in comparison once you have tasted the Weathervane's!

We have had many meals at the Weathervane restaurant in a variety of locations and have always had a positive experience. Our latest meal was no exception. I ordered the Harvest Apple sea scallops that were listed on the specials board. The scallops were served with butternut squash and sweet potato waffle fries. I enjoy all three of these items...

Overlooking Weirs Beach, Lobster in the Rough is a Weathervane Seafood Restaurant and really delivers good food. Our service was great and the view was wonderful...we watched the trains and boats go by throughout our meal. Love this place!

Heading home from a trip to Maine over the weekend, I stopped by my local Weathervane Seafood Restaurant. I was glad to see that an old favorite dish was on the menu. I had the lighter portion Apple Harvest Chicken with a fresh steamed garden vegetable medley of summer squash, zucchini, broccoli, and sliced carrots at $9.99. Service as great.... More

I hadn't been to the Weathervane for awhile and was very hungry and my son and I quickly decided to go to the Weathervane as their service was always fast and I'm always satisfied with Weathervane. I also wanted to get the fried oysters they have had with previous visits. I was disappointed that they didn't have oysters (which the... More
