fantastic – I went to the Weathervane on Thursday night, with a small business group, and it was superb. The atmosphere was calm and cool and our food was excellent. We shard the crab dip and artichoke bruschetta appetizers, which were both large enough for all of us, and we all liked them! My entree was the chicken piccata, and it was delicious, and different. I will certainly go back again. We were also greeted and seated promptly and the service was above average. I give it two thumbs up.

Beware - food poisioning! – I got a case of food poisioning from eating at the Weathervane, ended up in the ER where they confirmed it. Beware! they only had a 91% sanitation grade!!!

Edit - WRAL reported they scored a B on their last inspection 83% - you can read the report online.

Great Sunday Brunch! – We decided to stop into the Weathervane for Sunday morning brunch. Wow, was it delicious! Treat yourself to a wonderful breakfast, and follow it with a trip to A Southern Season! The Southern Season Cheese Plate appetizer was to die for, and the quiche was delicious too!

With a lush courtyard and tasty brunch fare, this cafe provides the perfect break for A Southern Season shoppers. – In ShortChapel Hill residents flock to Weathervane's spacious courtyard with its lush fountains and curved banquettes. Inside, the main dining room features upholstered seating and warm red walls around the open-air kitchen. Brunch is delicious; try the French toast with mascarpone cheese and jam or the sun-dried tomato and goat cheese quiche. For dinner, entrees include pork roulade and glazed salmon with barbecue sauce. The wine list offers quality and coffee drinks are on the money.

FRiday nights are great! Live music- – Really enjoyed Friday night in the lounge... food was great and the entertainment was wonderful. Silvanus Slaughter at the keyboard- very mellow voice- smooth music (his own compositions)... very pleasant... not to be missed.

Amazing brunch! – I had brunch here this morning and was so pleased. I had the eggs benedict with asparagus with hash brown casserole which was delicious, and perfectly executed. My party also ordered the blueberry pancakes with lemon curd, the pain perdu, and the quiche. Everything was delightful. The pancakes were like nothing I have ever experienced--so fluffy. We also managed to squeeze dessert in. Mango cheesecake, strawberry shortcake, berry pudding, and the remolaude. They were all awesome, and we each cleaned our plates. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. The wait wasn't too long--and it went fast as we occupied ourselves with the aisles full of goodies in southern season. We definately will return.

evening meal, really, really bad. – So the patio is nice, the brunch is fab but the evening meal I had last night was really really bad. I had some sort of duck and goat cheese creation for appetizer. The "goat cheese" turned out to be a liquidy pile of cream with shredded duck sprinkled on top. No cheese flavor at all. Main meal: a very fatty grilled steak fatty topped with tinned mushrooms and a horseradish sauce apparently. Sauce could have been the "goat cheese" from the previous course and I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference. No familiar kick from the horseradish sauce. I passed on desert as the portions looked pitiful. Such a disappointment given how fabulous the adjoining shop is. Service is OK.

Consistent quality – The Weathervane made a good impression on my husband and me when we first visited, and it has only gotten better over the years. If anything, the food has improved. We especially enjoy the new, bigger patio in nice weather, and we know we can count on a well-prepared meal at a reasonable price. Even our favorite waiter has been there for years!

Why not close the restaurant? – We had brunch there recently. Unbeknownst to us, they had a celebrety chef doing a demo in the kitchen that day. So, one member of our party received his entre promptly but his soup and the entres for the the rest of us arrived 50 minutes later.

The staff apologized repeatedly for the delay - but wouldn't it have made more sense to shut down the restaurant while the kitchen was in use for other purposes?

Very poor management. But the worst sin - the food when it did finally arrive was cold and not at all worthy of the rave reviews posted by others here. My Scallops Oscar was nasty - overcooked congealed poached eggs on a pasty biscuit topped with a 1/2 teaspon dollop of crabmeat, surrounded by cold, singed, over-salted yet undercooked scallops.

Wonderful – My roommate and I recently dined at the weathervane on a weeknight. We were seated promptly in the absolutely beautiful patio. There are heat lamps, so temperature was not a problem. Since we were on a budget, we decided to split an entree. The waiter was not at all condensending and they will split an entree in the kitchen for you for a dollar or two more. The lamb was delicious and there was more than enough for the two of us.
