We had a wonderful meal out on the deck with the roses and clematis blooming. The Summer Thyme cocktail we started with was excellent. The salmon over succotash was very moist and full of flavor. The rueben with fries was also very good.

The Mother's Day menu was a fixed-menu and the food was very tasty. The Service was hit-or-miss (e.g. had to ask for coffee twice, had to ask for fork twice). Do not get the table against the window by the exterior patio door. The traffic...More

Service was good noting that our waitress said "they were a little short staffed today". Food above average for a mid sized restaurant. I would recommend.

I don't know but here is their phone # 919-929-9466
Is there any discounted gift certificate? Say, a small percentage savings at a price-point? We do not live there, but are considering buying a restaurant gift today for a couple living close by to this site. We have eating at your location about a year ago.

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.
