Our service was lackluster and we had to flag down our server several times. I'm not sure if the restaurant was understaffed or our waiter was reluctant to be around people. It was hard to tell, because there wasn't a wait and the place wasn't...More

Had a lovely lunch in an enjoyable environment. The service was first class and the food excellent. However, I would like to see more menu choices.

This restaurant serves interesting Southern cuisine. It is obviously a tradition with certain locals, and the food is both good and interesting. The restaurant itself is well-kept but perhaps a little dated. One fantastic aspect of this restaurant is that it is quieter than you...More

This was once a great restaurant. The dinner I had the other night was really bad. I had fish that was dry with no sauce to help and my husband had fry chicken that was anything but. I'm sorry to say but maybe since they...More

I just spoke with Weathervane, and got my answers directly. They sell gift certificates, on their Chapel Hill Website, and it is toward the bottom of their Web Page. No additional answer needed, now.
