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... read 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

Fantastic sea food, at a reasonable price, we have never been disappointed eating there. The seafood is always fresh and not greasy at all. Great service also

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.

My wife thoroughly enjoyed the fried clams... More

I wouldn't go out of my way to come here again, but the food was pretty good. I got a whole lobster and my boyfriend got a fried seafood platter. Needless to say you can't really mess up steaming a lobster. We got a mussel appetizer that was amazing though. Good prices. About 70 on our 2 meals an app... More
