Very lovely food with wonderful ambience overlooking the waterway. Menu was extensive with many options. Had a memorable salad with a very tastey burger. Liked the salad so much I bought the cookbook for the recipe for the dressing!

My Dad and I took my Mom out for a delicious birthday dinner. The food was great and the wine was good too. We sat outside and had a nice view of the drawbridge and lots of boats passing by. Service was attentive.

Let me say that sitting out on the deck makes up for a lot of the shortcomings. The restaurant itself looks dated and the menu seems like it hasn't changed ever. The food was ok. My companion loved her caprese salad. I got chicken picatta,...More

No dress code is required. Because they are in a 'tourist' town, particularly in the Spring, Summer and Fall....you are welcome at Stafford's Weathervane in casual attire.
