The sandwiches at weathervane are the greatest. With large portions and good taste the Philly Cheese steak stands out as my favorite. I will have to have another real soon. The prices are affordable as well. Also close to home.

As good as I remember it as a child. I can't choose just one favorite, everything is amazing & very responsibly priced. You just don't know until you try. You won't be disappointed.

I have been going here for about 25 years and have taken my grandchildren here for ice cream. Each time they visit they remind me of their trips to Weathervane many years ago, and I am thankful for the memories that we have.

Best ice cream ever. Most places ice cream is pretty tasteless, depending on add-ins for flavor. Not here. Good old fashioned taste with add-ins available if you want them. 5 stars.

Weathervane has been a Granite City institution for many years and there is a reason for it- it's delicious and very unique. The ice cream is so very yummy and they have a plethora of ice cream concoctions including rockets, drumsticks, shakes, ice cream sodas,...More
