Stafford's Weathervane serves incredible lunch and dinner entrées, all made from scratch with only the season’s finest ingredients. The focal point of their 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 including highways and interstates. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind arboretum atmosphere overlooking the beautiful Pine River Channel.

The Round Lake Room is attached to the bar area and portrays a more casual environment while the main dining area is more formal. The Weathervane does not, at any time, enforce a dress code. It is their mission to allow guests the comfort they need to properly enjoy the Weathervane's culinary creations.

The managers and employees at Weathervane are a great group of people. It was our daughters bday, we couldn’t make a reservation but they were able to get us in. We had a great dinner and they were extremely nice to accommodate us. Excellent service and excellent food!!!

You're paying for the view, which is great. Beyond that everything is good but not worth the $. 3 stars for lack of value. Still recommended, but I think I'd rather eat at other places in town or get takeout and go to the beach/channel and eat.

Great food. Beautiful presentation. Our service was top notch. Seating away from the bar area is semi private. I will return!

My 2 daughters took me here April 2, 2022 for my Birthday get away weekend. Our waiter, Larry, was wonderful. The young man refilling water glasses with the cutest "you're welcome", a beautiful soul. Our food; prime rib for 2 of us, elk for the other. Outstanding! For my Birthday, we ordered the raspberry cheesecake with blueberry and lavender custard. OMG, we have never eaten such a delicate, delicious combination of flavor. We have told everyone about this restaurant and we plan to return some day. 5 stars for ambiance, service and fiid.

Great restaurant next to the bridge. Good selection of wine, beer and spirits. Great variety of menu options and the fish is recommended.
