I had the fried green tomato sandwich with sweet potato fries. Both were delicious! I love to come here when we visit.

When the kids and I want a treat for brunch, Weathervane is where we go. Nowhere else has a match for their breakfast casserole, the biscuits are first class, and -- in spite of the chic atmosphere -- the service is friendly, warm, comfortable, welcoming. Inside and out, we've loved it every time we've gone. And it's a great place... More

Stopped in last evening with a group for a not too heavy dining experience due to all of the recent holiday feasts. It was a great choice! In fact, it was our lucky night because select bottles of good wine were one-half price. We started with an excellent cheese, salad and chief selected meat board with our chosen white and... More

The outside seating is comfortable and covered. We brought Maggie and they gave her a bowel of water. The omelettes were done to perfection. My husband enjoyed the western omelette that was tasty and not overcooked The coffee is good and is offered as often as you like I had a veggie omelette and the veggies were not overdone. So...

I ate here yesterday, for about the 10th time in a couple years. This place is classy. It gives good food done creatively. They handle large groups very well. Their location is excellent, operating in a shopping mall as part of an excellent food store.

After a morning business meeting three of us went for lunch at Weathervane. Our server couldn't have been nicer. None of us had ever been here before and he took his time answering all of our questions and making recommendations. Two of us had brunch items and I had a luncheon entree. This place is spacious and can accommodate large... More

I have never had dinner or brunch there, but I really enjoy the lunches I have had there over the years. It is good food. There is a lot of variety on the menu and the service is top notch.
