Our favorite for takeout seafood. Friendly staff, quick service, good seafood and huge portions. Wife gets the seafood platter and I get the clam strip platter. Both great and we always have enough for a second meal the next day.

The quality of the food was good, but the service was minimal. Our server was distracted & didn't seem engaged. We ate upstairs and had a hard time hearing each other over the noise in the room. The food was overpriced considering it was local seafood.

Great seafood, especially clam strips! The beer was cold, the service was quick, and there was good view.

We stopped by this restaurant recently and were disappointed at the small menu choices and the prices. Definitely won't be returning here again. The food was expensive and just so so at best as far as taste and value. There are numerous other places to try that are much better. I got tricked by the Weathervane name. All the other... More

We always come to eat here when we are in Weirs Beach. This trip we found the lobster and steamers quite expensive, especially considering the lobster at the Market Basket was going for $5.95 per pound, and the service haphazard. They did not have curtains on the windows and the direct sun was almost unbearable to sit in to eat,... More

centrally located at wears beach. Not much to look at. Just a dinner or reminds me of a pizza place not seafood.

Big margaritas with many choices of different types. I tried both the pomegranate and the watermelon ones. The food was quite OK - but could have been a bit more seasoned. Mostly fried seafood on the menu. Efficient service, and a nice view of the lake from the upper floor

We had one of the best lunches of the summer at Lobster in the Rough. Great location and consistently delicious food across the board. Highly recommend the scallops, haddock bites, and fish and chips.

We enjoyed a great meal at Lobster in the Rough. Delicious fried scallop meal, excellent twin lobster dinner, and great clam chowder. Excellent, attentive service and very reasonable price plus a nice view of Weirs Beach! Worth a visit.
