“Beware!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

The food was good. I had my usual fish and chips. Always a great bargain. Nice piece of haddock and basic fries.

So, all in all, a decent experience. The waiter was very personable and adequately attentive. Food good. When the check arrived, I payed the bill on my credit card and left a generous 20% tip in cash. When this transaction posted on my acct. there was an additional $5 tip added to the amount!
I called the restaurant and was told that a $5 tip had been added to the total (not by me!!). But the mgr would call me back.
The next day Denise called me and while chewing on something, informed me that my acct had been credited the five bucks. Well, thank you very much. Great customer service!!
So, is the new thing for waitstaff to add additional tip if they feel like it? WOW!
So, if you choose to dine here and pay with a card, be sure to carefully check your bank statement.

“A mere shadow of its former self”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

A dissappointing trip down memory lane for out of town family returning for a meal at a favored former haunt. Good friendly (not excellent; had to ask for ketchup etc ) wait staff; overly geasy entree fried seafood; excellent fish chowdah. Dated decor; dowdy atmospherics in an almost empty 7 PM Saturday night dining spot. No Malbec on wine list.

“Declining”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We have eaten at the Weathervane for 20-25 years now. There was a time when it was stellar, but those days are past. The last 4-5 experiences have all provided sub-par food for too high a bill. I think we keep returning hoping we'll find what it once was, but we are always disappointed. On the positive side, the place is almost empty.

Sad, it used to be very special.

“Not as good as it used to be. :(”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Our server was great but that was all that was.
The food was good but not like it used to be.
We probably won't be back.
