Onion Rings are my favorite

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

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.

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

My husband and I went for an early dinner and it was nice... We were promptly seated and the waitress was polite. She was very nice, but didn't quite pay attention to our order...There was a mistake with my dinner I had ordered the Apple harvest chicken but received the salmon... I advised of the mistake and she apologized... and... More

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
