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.

Had a wonderful memorial meal for my mother here. The staff, Jennifer especially, was so helpful throughout the whole process. The number of attendees changed multiple times and they were able to accommodate every change I had to make because of this crazy world right now! The food was absolutely delicious and we all enjoyed the meal we were eating as well as eyeing up the food of the people to the right and left of us, and stealing bites whenever someone would let us! The prime rib was prepared exactly the way each of us wanted and even though I like mine done a little more , it was still tender and flavorful. The planked whitefish was excellent. And everybody loved their dessert too. Would highly recommend Stafford's Weathervane Restaurant to anyone.

Horrific. Food wise. Place and view and service were OK. Like 10lbs of batter on fish. Why? Not good. Why would you wreck a perfectly good piece of perch or walleye like that? Do people like it that way,? Went to nice place in TVC night before. Light year's difference. Apache something. Phenomenal. Worth the drive.

Absolutely horrible! Food was okay, over priced for what you get. You pay for the view! Old school and needs an update. Definitely not upscale, we travel all over and eat at many high end restaurants. Very disappointed. Service was not good either. Manager was super rude! Will not be back! Watched me sign my receipt and see how much I left for a tip! Very uncomfortable!

The Food was exquisite, and Brenda was lovely, I had elk and it was cooked to perfection, my husband had salmon it was great. We topped it off with their Turtle puff dessert. Can't wait to go back.

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!!!
