Great Seafood!

I grew up in Maine and going to the Weathervane was always a treat. I was so excited to see one a little closer to home and my daughter treated me to lunch there for Mother's Day. Yummy!

This restaurant serves good fish in a pleasant environment that reminds me of my younger days eating at fish shacks all over New England. The decor is old, old, old...with kind of sticky-looking pine paneling...but the place is clean, the booths are comfortable, and the waitstaff is accommodating. If it's not on the menu, you can ask for it and... More

the interior is nothing to brag about but their fried seafood is great, fresh and tasty and their onion rings are the BEST anywhere. The prices are very reasonable and you get large portions, not a place for a date or special event but definitely a good place to go to.

Having given the Weathervane a chance to redeem itself, my husband and I, friends and family gave it baseball's 3 strikes and you're out test. Strike one: Terrible. Strike two: Terrible. Strike three: Really terrible! Haven't been here since I ordered a side of cole slaw to go with fish that I baked at home, having chosen not to eat... More

If you like seafood and friendly people this is the place to go. Portions are nice and food is excellent . It's not a fancy place but well worth the trip

I follow TravelAdvisor reviews carefully and I'm surprised by the low rankings of this restaurant. Frankly, I seldom go to a restaurant that's rated #28 of 91 but my wife and I were hungry for reasonably authentic sea food without having to drive to the NH or ME coast so we tried Weathervane. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the fried clams... More
