Menu features light bites, also craft cocktails. My wife had the shrimp, Andouille... More

The outside seating is comfortable and covered. We brought Maggie and they gave her a bowel of water. The omelettes were done to perfection. My husband enjoyed the western omelette that was tasty and not overcooked The coffee is good and is offered as often as you like I had a veggie omelette and the veggies were not overdone. So...

I ate here yesterday, for about the 10th time in a couple years. This place is classy. It gives good food done creatively. They handle large groups very well. Their location is excellent, operating in a shopping mall as part of an excellent food store.

After a morning business meeting three of us went for lunch at Weathervane. Our server couldn't have been nicer. None of us had ever been here before and he took his time answering all of our questions and making recommendations. Two of us had brunch items and I had a luncheon entree. This place is spacious and can accommodate large... More

I have never had dinner or brunch there, but I really enjoy the lunches I have had there over the years. It is good food. There is a lot of variety on the menu and the service is top notch.

We had a party of 10 celebrating dad's birthday. Most of the party had the shrimp and grits which everyone liked. The salmon and mac n cheese on the kids menu was fantastic. Everything had a twist to it...fried green tomatoes app half the dish was fried okra.........shrimp and grits had sausage and bacon.....even the burger had a vinegar reduction... More

This is the second year that we have celebrated my birthday lunch at Weathervane. The food is great and the professional and upbeat service by Karen is unsurpassed! I wish all destination lunches were this dependable! We will be back!

Always go early before the lunch crowd strolls in to receive the best service. The food is delicious and the service is always spot on. Now you do pay for it. This is not an inexpensive lunch/dinner but sit back and enjoy. We go more for lunch then dinner and have left satisfied each time.

Thank NCluvtrav
