This visit to the popular seafood restaurant was disappointing! The featured swordfish was dry and the haddock nuggets were far from nuggets! How about billing them as fried fish tails which is basically what they were! Come on Weathervane, you can do better!

Had a family meal here with my wife, brother in-law and 89 year old Aunt. Was very surprised how good it was. Three of us had the special haddock and fantail shrimp and my Aunt had Seafarer Haddock. All meal were a good portion for the money and were cooked to perfection. We started the meal with onion rings which... More

We have been customers of this restaurant for many years but sadly are ready to say goodby. The service was slow. The veggies arrived at the end of the meal. The menu has become more limited while the prices have soared. The plate was 4" x 6" hardly entree sized. Demitasse anyone? The ambiance is set by the bar, flatscreen... More

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...
