I have been eating here for a long time and usually go here with my parents. Excellent food, on Thursdays they have what they call wicked good twins which is 2 lobsters for around the $20.00 ball park. The staff is extremely friendly and tells you every thing you need to know about the menu and daily specials. They also have a small bar.

My husband and I were taken here as a wedding gift from his mother the day before we got married. I've always gotten the same thing, seeing as I don't particularly care for seafood. The chicken tenders. The staff was perfectly fine, but the food was soggy because it was just sitting in all of that grease. Now, I know chicken fingers are greasy by nature, but this was just DISGUSTING. The food they serve that is fried was MUCH better when they used the paper plates, as it absorbed the grease, instead of letting the food pool in it.
I will never eat here again, and apparently my parents having a similar experience, won't either.

My girlfriend and I recently went to maine and stopped off at the Weathervane in Sanford, Maine. Upon stepping out of our car, we were surrounded by what appeared to be 3 employees smoking right in front of the building. We assumed they worked there because they were wearing aprons. They put out there cigarettes and greeted us without washing there hands. I asked the lady who seated us her name, She said her name was Lori. She said our waitress was a lady named June. They seated us then we waited for another 10 minutes. There were maybe 2 other tables in the dining room. It appeared that they maybe went back outside to finish there cigarettes. I guess cigarettes come before paying guest these day. Anyways, After listening to our server June, who's personality struck me as if she intended to be funny but my girlfriend seemed to think she was just plain rude. We ordered food, I ordered the Sirloin tips medium and my girlfriend ordered the Fried Fantail Dinner with rice. My steak was severely over cooked, my girlfriend said the shrimp tasted spoiled. Our server did not even bother to ask how our food was or why we did not finish. When we left, The lady who seated us Lori, did not show any signs of customer service or ask how our stay was. We have been dining in New England for many years now and I hope when you travel to Sanford Maine that you shall drive right pass the Weathervane and maybe proceed to a better place that cares about there guests 1st and not finishing there cigarettes first. Enough said!!!

It's just bad. Don't go. It's like being served frozen dinners put on a plate.
