Weathervane has been a popular family owned frozen custard ice cream destination in Granite City for many years. Several years ago the family sold the business and the new owner expanded the business to Maryville Road. He added food to the menu.

I always get the chocolate ice cream cones so i can't provide a wide variety review. The staff is always nice and the ice cream is very good. The wife usually gets a concrete and ahe loves them. The property is kind of small but it works. Of course we go back often!

Thank Eric B

We hope you'll stop by again soon. We're definitely proud of our quaint, neighborhood feel, so it's good to hear you can appreciate that too. Until next time, Weathervane... More

It has been about 25years since visiting Weather Vane...and it was just as good as I remember! Their orange sherbet is the best!

Doesn't have the name sake like Ted Drewes BUT does have just as good or better ice cream. You get A LOT for your money. Haven't came across a menu item I didn't like. A MUST if you like ice cream.

I had the vanilla custard, it was pretty good but I wouldn't rave about as others do. Still i can see why people who lived here as kids and came back can taste the nostalgia. If you have a taste for frozen treats, this place is good.

Weathervane is the place of my youth! We loved it then and returning to the area had to give it a go. Still as good as we remembered! The building is new since we had been there but the frozen custard remains second to none. Totally beats that famous one across the river! Off the beaten track but well worth... More
