It's amazing that so many people can fit into this one-room restaurant/bar. Don't tell any secrets at your table! And only a few waitresses, so plan on waiting for service and reordering.The food is good with limited variety. We started with appetizers of the poppers...More

Charming and Quaint. Food was delicious and very generous portions with reasonable prices. Bustling atmosphere. We went on a Friday evening so a 45 minute wait but we'll worth it and the wait passed quickly due to great conversation with the locals. Service was great.

Still one of our favorites and still hard to get in - but worth the effort. The bar has six stools and three booths. Seating in the rest of the restaurant is tight so we like to sit at the bar whenever possible. The food...More

My wife and I have been going to the Weathervane for over 30 years. Make sure you get one of the daily specials. The seafood is always fresh and tasty. The steaks are always great. Great place for lunch or dinner. The owners genuinely care.

It was noontime and we were hungry and this place in small-town Hamilton looked good. Fortunately for us, we were seated immediately since it only has about a dozen tables and a few bar stools. Let's get to the food - the best part. My...More

I'm hesitant to post a review because I don't want anyone else to know about this neighborhood gem. Teeny, tiny place (only 14 tables for two and a handful of booths), you find yourself elbow to elbow with your neighbor trading opinions and suggestions. Service...More

I've eaten at this restaurant for over 25 years off and on. It's great for lunch or dinner. Food is very good; well prepared and reasonable. It's a hole in the wall, but locals love it. You definitely get your money's worth. It can get...More

We have been going to the Weathervane for as long as I can remember. It's a hole in the wall, neighborhood place where you are sure to run into friends & neighbors. The menu is huge for such a small place, but everything we've tried...More
