I have eaten here three times and have never been disappointed. Most recently I was there for lunch on Sunday with family. I always have a hard time choosing what to get due to all the great choices. I have found the wait staff to be extremely helpful and sincere. The food is fresh and high quality. And before or... More

Portions were a bit small. Overall service a little slow had to keep asking to refill my tea. Really like the 3 combination lunch salad especially the chicken Almond Salad, awesome.

This is a great place to go if you have some time. Four of us had lunch on Saturday. We had made reservations on open table, so we got right in even thought it was pretty busy due to the Christmas shoppers. It took a long time for us to be acknowledged by our server. I don't know if she... More

Last night was a disappointment. This had been a good restaurant in the past but with poor service and poor attitude of everyone there the rating is very low. It took the server over 20 minutes to get our drinks out the first time. This continued all night. Long drink times, so-so food. Nothing was better than mall food court... More

Weathervane is a great place to enjoy good food well presented. Comfortable alone or with a party! We enjoyed a birthday brunch!

Food was very average. Noise level high. There are many better restaurants in the area. We had salads, chefs special, and steak. Service was fine but food was below expectations.

The pros: -- nice atmosphere -- fun to shop at A Southern Season after lunch -- easy parking -- a few real hits from the kitchen, especially a very nice butternut squash soup The cons: -- highly indifferent service (I've had three exceptions in about 20 visits.) -- long waits at certain times of day -- can be quiet noisy...

I liked everything about Weathervane and would like to work my way through the menu! I had the salmon for lunch - among the best! My dining partners both had burgers and shared some fries with me; the fries may be THE best! The decor is upscale yet can be casual so it seems to work for a special occasion... More

I often had lunch at the Weathervane, either in the bar area (nice decor, city feel), in the dining room (very conservative decor, a bit boring), and today in the nice enclosed patio outside. This café is adjacent to A Southern Season, Chapel Hill's gorgeous food emporium. It is situated at the end a shopping mall with abundant, free parking,... More
