Welcome to The Weathervane Restaurant
The focal point of our indoor dining room is a massive stone fireplace with a history all its’ own. Made of glacial boulders and shaped like Michigan’s lower peninsula, the fireplace actually replicates a map of the state. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind arboretum atmosphere overlooking the beautiful Pine River Channel.
Charlevoix’s premier outdoor dining space is a dining experience to remember. Jeff’s Deck opened in June of 2005 and has been a smash hit with both residents and tourists alike. Our unique outdoor venue will allow you to enjoy the breezes, views and parade of boats on the channel.
The Weathervane Restaurant became a Stafford’s property in 1988, although it was not the first marriage of the company’s founder and this particular business. In 1965 Stafford ran the Weathervane for Earl Young and although he expressed interest in buying it, the resources were not available to him.
Enjoyed our dinner. The oak planked white fish was wonderful. Great service and the hostess was a wealth of historical information. Would eat there next time we are in town.Flyer799734
Another Wonderful Meal
We had a wonderful meal here. It was restaurant week and the menu was great. The filet and crab cake was done to perfection.flyaway49686
The whitefish and shrimp was delicate and tasty.
Our server timed the meal so we had time to enjoy our drink, then first course. The main dish was hot when placed on the table. Desserts were lovely. What an evening. Of course we will be back.
We always have a dinner here when in town. I have been coming to Charlevoix since I was a mid-teenager (I’m now retired). We Had a group of 8 for dinner. Our waiter was extremely nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. Never hurried us along, let us sit and talk forever! The meal was excellent, and two in our group had never been there before. Days after, they were still talking about how impressed they were with it.2Swansons
