Excellent fried haddock lunch

Stopped in for lunch with my son while we were waiting for new tires to be put on his car. We both ordered fish and chips. I was pleasantly surprised that the fish was real haddock, cooked perfectly, and a large portion. It was excellent. The plate came with fries and coleslaw and was more than... read more

We visit the Weathervane every year during our annual travel through Salem NH. Over the last couple of years their service and quality of sea food has deteriorated. Many members of my extended family who live in the area no longer eat at this Weathervane. Just not as good as it use to be.

They've been around a long time and I think their decor and menu is simply tired. The value is average, the food is good, you can bring your family and children, the staff is very nice all the time and the place is kept clean. I wouldn't go on a "date" here. Overall, I think the company needs a facelift... More

Went to the Weathervane this week and enjoyed to seafood very much. Quantity and high quality food. Had a hard time finishing the meal. Had the Haddock platter and was excellent. We eat there every time we we come up to visit my wife's home. Staff was friendly. A very nice place to eat.

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! I love their fried clam rolls. She had crab cakes and loved them too! I also enjoyed a very yummy $5 margarita!... More

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.
