Stafford's Weathervane Restaurant

106 Pine River Lane,
Charlevoix, MI 49720

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 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.

Would of been a great experience. My wife and I stopped for dinner. Her food was brought out hot, my very expensive steak was brought out cold, probably 75°. They took it back and reheated it somehow and brought it back out to me and the texture was like rubber. I talked to the server and asked to take it off my bill. They did take it off my bill. I still left the server a good tip as it was not her fault. Always tip your server good but I wish she would of been more sympathetic. All and all, my wife's dinner was good and I helped her eat it. Total cost for app, glass of wine, and her meal plus tip almost $90.

Absolutely beautiful spot from head to toe. A little rustic modern, nautical theme. The views everywhere are spectacular. Extremely large upstairs and downstairs dining rooms and a nice patio overlooking the watervane. The food came out extremely hot and perfectly cooked. For how fancy this place was you don't need to break the bank to dine here. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling newr Charlavoix.

I think you're mostly paying for the locale here. My food was good, but not on the level I would expect at the price point. The view WAS nice though, I can't argue that!

Delicious food and great service with an awesome view of the lake channel! The super nice people that work here were able to get us a nice table for our anniversary with just a few minutes wait when there was a line out the door (they don't do reservations). Everything that we ordered was delicious! We especially liked the seafood chowder, French onion soup, and fish and chips made with whitefish. My wife was a fan of the escargot. Service was quick and friendly.

One of our favorite places to eat. Great views. The place is looking a bit tired. No more nice table set-uos or linens. Food selection was great, bonus for Plath Meats and a great person at the carving station - best ham ever! Potatoes, fish, eggs and French toast were with cold or out way too long. Our server was excellent and the eggs Benedict were superb. The fine points were missed.
