When arrived to claim our reservation at The Weathervane, we were greeted promptly. Our table was waiting. We were seated immediately. Our waitress came by to take beverage orders as soon as we were settled. She delivered our beverages a few minutes later. Friend #1 ordered the Haddock at $9.99 from the Fried Seafarers section of the menu which was... More

I was not impressed with the food I received at the Weathervane Restaurant. I had heard mixed reviews from friends and decided to try it myself. Being a New Englander who has been born and raised by the ocean I am used to excellent seafood. I found both mine and my husbands dinners below par. One dry and the other... More

Nothing out of the ordinary here, but if it not broke don't fix it. Just good sea food at reasonable prices. They don't try to be pretentious, no fancy presentation, just the basics. Friendly wait staff.

Came here to meet a couple that we have known for years for some local seafood. We all got something different from the menu and we all enjoyed the meal we got. Last time we were here I got the lobster roll and thought it was just too small to order again but I got the fried haddock and fried... More

The weathervane does seafood as it should be in New England, simple and tasty. Though nothing fancy the food is always cooked perfectly and fits the budget. They do have more than just seafood and their steak tips are worth the try.

Unprepossessing casual restaurant located on the outskirts of town. However, if you do stop in, the prices are reasonable and the seafood is very good. The native shrimp are tender and delicious, and something I always get when visiting. Fish and lobster also good. Onion rings and vegetables good, but avoid the French fries which are bland.

First stop from the airport on my way to Rochester. I grew up here so I pretty much have to have the fisherman's platter! Full belly clams of course! It's what you would expect from fried seafood. Not too heavy and the service was good, although it is 2pm on a Thursday. And yes, you still get silly bibs with... More

We stopped in for lunch while traveling to Boston. We ordered the fried haddock sandwich and chowder. The fried haddock was good although the batter was slightly heavy and it tasted like it was fried and old grease. Tartar sauce was terrible tasted fake and imitation not good at all. Coleslaw tasted like a refrigerator very old I believe. Chowder... More
