We actually enjoyed dining at Weathervane when it (and A Southern Season) was in its former location simply because the ambience was spectacular. The food is still great, and it's still necessary to budget half an hour after dining to stroll through A Southern Season, but the original charm didn't transfer.

Our lunch experience at the Weathervane leaves us wanting more! We love all of the local ingredients highlighted, but most of all, love how they taste when used in appetizers & entrees. It was difficult to choose between such wonderful sandwiches and other entrees for lunch. Even the cocktails were impressive. The service was not lacking. We were well attended to in the bar area before the main dining room opened for lunch.

Being able to step right out into the store, Southern Season, was super convenient and fun. But that will have to be a separate review.

I can't wait to return!

I got married on March 16, 2013 and we had our wedding and reception at the Weathervane. We were very pleased and happy with our service. Our wedding was on the patio of the restaurant and it turned out beautiful and our reception was upstair in the Mezz room. Our dinner was excellant and the service was great. I would recommend the Weathervane for your wedding and reception. Our wedding was small and it was very reasonable. The event planner was wonderful help me with all the details and I can't say enough good things about her and the restaurant.

Went for Easter brunch and weeknight dinner. Dinner better than brunch. Brunch wait service a bit scattered even though we were only one of three tables at a 10:30 seating.
That being said, the entrees are innovative and showcase local ingredients. Sweet potato and apple soup was the optimum blend of sweet and tart; grilled chicken bruschetta not as innovative-really an open face sandwich; shrimp and grits excellent; sweet tea salmon exceptional.
