“Charlevoix's Only True Waterfront Dining”

Originally built as a grist mill, the current Weathervane Restaurant was converted to a dining establishment in the mid 1950s. It was designed by the famed local architect Earl Young, known for his curvaceous roof-lines and flowing architecture. Stafford's Weathervane Restaurant offers signature and regional cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere and is Charlevoix's only true waterfront dining, nestled along the busy Pine River Channel in downtown Charlevoix. Guests will enjoy unparalleled views of the water from inside, or choose Jeff's Deck for the ultimate in outdoor dining. Watch the boats cruise by from this historic former Charlevoix gristmill and experience gracious lakeshore resort dining. Fresh is always the word at Stafford’s. Enjoy the Weathervane Restaurant’s many signature appetizers, entrees and desserts as well as its trademark architectural stonework. The bar is always a lively place, and the new outdoor dining spot, Jeff's Deck, is scheduled to stay open all year long. The Weathervane is housed in a former 1800s grist mill, and its bar is constructed with planks from a shipwreck. The ghost of a miller who was killed on the job is said to haunt the restaurant. Witnesses have heard his footsteps and seen dishes move on their own!
