Conveniently located immediately off Route 95 exit 3, at 306 US Route 1 in the heart of the outlets of Kittery, Maine. Family owned and operated, for 45 years, Weathervane has earned the reputation of being a family-friendly restaurant capable of accommodating very large parties whether it’s on a whim or a well-planned event with group menus and rates for any occasion. There is plenty of parking, a full bar and a variety of New England-style seafood, steaks, chicken and pasta to satisfy every appetite. A short drive from historic downtown Portsmouth , NH, home to parks, theaters a bustling downtown, and the community of York, ME just a few miles in the opposite direction where you will find beautiful beaches and the York Wild Animal Kingdom. You can relax at our cozy bar equipped with large screen TVs and boasting a dozen draft beers and signature cocktails for your enjoyment. We offer an outdoor patio where you can soak up the sun while enjoying your fresh Maine lobster and steamed clams.
It is important to the Weathervane to be a presence in our local community. As an employer of several local high schools we are actively involved in donating chowder to their events to help raise money for sports, field trips, and several other extra curricular activities. Recently we participated in Kittery Kids Live, a fundraiser at Shapleigh Middle School which helped to raise approximately $4,000 for the PTA. We have partnered with both York High School and Traip Academy for their Empty Bowls Events and 68 Hours of Hunger to help raise money for students who do not have a meal from the time they leave school Friday until they return to school on Monday morning. Additionally we have donated several gift certificates to local branches of the Military and local churches for their regular fundraisers. Finally, we are present at several town sponsored events over the course of the year including the Fire Department’s 5K and the Kittery Outlet Association’s Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure. We are always eager to get involved and happy to donate to those causes that strengthen our community.
“I am from London, England and consider myself a connoisseur of fish and chips. I must tell you that you can’t find any better than Weathervane’s on this side of the Atlantic. The haddock tastes so fresh and the batter is like no other! Thanks for giving me a little taste of home..”

“We were traveling up to the outlets and craving fresh Maine lobster so we stopped at the Weathervane. We had a really nice server who used to work in a lobster shack that was a summer place in our town, so we had lots to chat about. The food was great. It was the first time I allowed myself battered fried food in a long time – I couldn’t resist! I passed on the lobster and opted for the fried clams…. I was in heaven. Husband enjoyed his onion rings more than ever. They were hand made and lightly battered, crispy and delicious and he loved the clam chowder in a bread bowl also. It was a very nice experience and the next time we are in the area looking for a lobster restaurant we will be sure to stop.”

“After shopping the Kittery Outlets, a must go for us is The Weathervane. Not a very fancy restaurant but very clean and you can always count on having a good seafood dinner at a great price…and Thursday is wicked cheap twin lobster day. Needless to say, that’s the day we usually pick to hit the outlets about 2-3 time a year. Staff and service very friendly and accommodating. Can’t go wrong.”

“Got the broiled haddock and it was cooked just right and it tasted great and the service was just as good. My daughter had the lobster dinner and was very happy. Weathervane’s food is always consistent in quality, I have never had a disappointing meal there and return time and time again for the best seafood in Kittery. Can’t beat the prices either!”

My wife and I both love the chowder and the fresh seafood specials and if we happen to go on Thursdays they always have a twin lobster special that never fails to please.
