My Granddaughter and I were on a bus tour and the bus company reserved this restaurant for dinner. There were 2 choices, chicken or fried fish and shrimp. My choice was the chicken which was served with rice and a small amount of cole slaw. The staff was friendly considering we were two hours late.

We went to lunch on Father's Day an we were not disappointed. We shared fried clams, scalloped, and shrimp. All were fresh and delicious. The batter is light and not greasy. We highly recommend for outstanding New England seafood fare. Our waitress was awesome. Find coupons online.

The Weathervane Seafood Restaurant is a place one can depend on to get quality food at a good price. This small regional chain has won numerous awards. My most-recent visit was with friends for a Saturday afternoon lunch. We had a reservation. Our table was waiting when we arrived. Beverage orders were taken promptly. Friend #1 had the Fried Haddock... More

This place has the BEST Shrimpy Mary's I have ever had. The staff is all so friendly. This is a perfect place for a last minute dinner stop.

Stopped for lunch prior to visit at UNH. They were very accommodating as we were pressed for time. Food was good and a descent price. If UNH is the choice we will go back.

We stop in from time to time and the food is decent. The overall restaurant could use an over haul. They run some good kid specials so that works for us.

This Weathervane occupies what used to be an old A & W Root Beer stand. I think it was the second Weathervane after the original in Kittery was so successful. The Weathervane chain expanded into Vermont, Massachusetts, and New York State in the 70s and 80s. At one time there were at least fourteen Weathervanes. I have watched in recent... More

We went twice: first time with our american cousins, then we came back to eat clams and lobsters. We loved fish, our daughters loved burger.
