Pleasant restaurant for family

Another American chain, the food was just ok, ordered a twin lobster, was told 1 lb each, my guess which is pretty good, both are only about 1 lb. Fried combination of scallops, prawns and squid was just pretty average, the only thing that was good was the French fries. Service was attentive... read more

Seafood is expensive we all know that. But for the price it should also taste and look good. I felt like I got ripped off here. If you want to get good seafood I would suggest taking the extra ride up to the beach. Also the staff was unpleasant and not attentive.

Monday evening and not a lot of people eating out. We waited several minutes for someone to acknowledge us although 3 different staff people walked by. When I asked for a booth, they seated us right next to a loud group even though the place was almost empty. Food was okay but have to say the Fried Haddock I had... More

We stop in often for the delicious food and great service. Our favorite is the haddock dinner. Very generous portion for a very reasonable price. The service is outstanding. The meal is always served promptly and hot. The waitress also checks back often and is always very pleasant. Highly recommend!

The Weathervane in Salem offers great seafood at fairly reasonable prices. Their service is always good. Their fried seafood is great and they have the best onion nuggets and onion rings.

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 enough to fill us...

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
