I hadn't been to the Weathervane for awhile and was very hungry and my son and I quickly decided to go to the Weathervane as their service was always fast and I'm always satisfied with Weathervane. I also wanted to get the fried oysters they have had with previous visits. I was disappointed that they didn't have oysters (which the waitress said they don't always have, fine, no problem). I ordered a special fried seafood plate they were having consisted of haddock nuggets, shrimp, calamari and sea scallops. I'm usually so happy with one bite but noticed it just wasn't that good. Even the sea scallops didn't taste that great, the calamari was dry and hard and the fish was dry. Even the baked potato and coleslaw weren't good and I heard a woman at the next table telling the waitress that her coleslaw didn't taste right. The waitress was great, the manager came over when I said I was dissatisfied and offered to add something to my dish, or more of anything I liked on the plate. Really though, the only thing that tasted okay was the shrimp. The meal just wasn't fresh. I like to tell restaurants when I'm dissatisfied so they can improve on things and retain customers. I may try them again but don't like spending good money only to be disappointed. I NEVER get dessert but needed a Golicks ice cream next door after to provide me with some satisfaction. I hope they take heed to criticism as a lot of people just stay silent and then never return.
