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.

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!

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.

Our last meal in Charlevoix, the atmosphere and the view were so good! The service was nice, we really like our waitress and the host. They are dog friendly restaurant! I almost got salad and whitefish egg roll, but changed my mind last minute and got their feature menu: Salmon and Hazelnut instead. The first couple bites I was like, I don't know what it is but's very good! The tomato stuffs on top was very refreshing! Mashed potatoes was good as well. My husband got bacon jam burger and fries, he said everything's perfect, usually he doesn't like the egg with his burger but it was very good this time. We were happy with our choice tonight!

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.

"Our dining experience reached new heights with the delectable white fish plate we savored. The versatility of sitting indoors or outdoors added to the charm, and everywhere we chose to be, breathtaking views of the lake accompanied our meal, making it truly unforgettable."
