The Weathervane is a small restaurant chain with a dozen or so eateries in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. We chose the Waterville, Maine, restaurant to celebrate my brother's 75th birthday.
One of the reasons we chose it was because of it's handicapped accessibility; since I'm the youngest of the crowd that is my family, there are a few in the group who have some physical limitations. We needed a place that had no stairs and a dining room large enough to accommodate wheelchairs.
The Waterville restaurant has two large dining rooms and had plenty of space to meet our needs. Plus, they were willing to let us bring our own birthday cake, and provide plates and a serving knife for our after-dinner festivities.
The birthday boy, Richard, and his daughter Janice.

My sister Jen, my sister-in-law Jackie, and you can just barely see the top of his head and his folded arms....my brother Art who was seated next to our niece, Janice. Don't ask me how I managed to miss getting Mr. Eva in the photo; he was seated across from me, next to my sister Jen.
We all chatted and had a great time, as well as having an excellent meal!
Mr. Eva had Baked Haddock with shrimp stuffing, with sides of mashed potatoes and cole slaw. He said it was all excellent!
I really loved my Broiled Haddock and sides of rice pilaf and coleslaw! The fish was fresh and tasty, and the rice pilaf was extra good. Even the cole slaw was yummy!
I didn't photograph everyone's entrees, but Larry was sitting next to me, so I couldn't resist snapping a shot of his Broiled Chicken Sandwich and fries.
A couple of people in the group had Grilled Salmon which they also said was tasty! All in all, it was great food, great company, and good time. I know, I didn't include a picture of the cake! It pretty much was gobbled up before I thought of taking a photo! It was a huge hit with everyone!
This is a copy... Mr. Eva liked it so much, he wanted me to make one for us at home! As you can see, it was a 3-layer yellow cake with a mixture of crushed pineapples, vanilla pudding, cool whip, and shredded coconut between layers and on top, garnished with a few blueberries and black berries.
