In Search of the Best Dover Restaurant? You’ve Arrived at Your Destination!
The home of our Dover restaurant boasts a bountiful history that pre-dates the Industrial Revolution and is rooted in the maritime and mill industry. Today, the thriving economy is buoyed by a strong arts and culture scene, as well as by delicious selection of cuisine from a multitude of Dover restaurants—like ours.
Established in 1623, Dover, New Hampshire, is the oldest permanent settlement in New Hampshire and the seventh oldest in the United States. Originally a shipbuilding city, Dover is entwined with the granite-banked Cocheco River. The Cocheco brought towering brick mills to the city and the mills brought the Industrial Revolution. Once the nation’s leading cotton textile mills, the historic buildings were bought by the city in 1940, however, like many New England mill towns, the eventual closing of the mills temporarily hurt Dover.
Today, transformation and revitalization has brought new life into the mills that now provide space for Dover restaurants, apartments, offices, studios, and more. Because of this, and a local focus on progress, Dover is the fastest growing city in New Hampshire, hailed by CNN/Money Magazine as one of the Top 100 Places to Live.
This historic city features plenty of things to do and see, such as local tours of unique venues like The Woodman Institute Museum, or a walk through the beautiful parks along the winding Cocheco River, or over the Cocheco Falls. In addition there are shows and live music and diverse shopping opportunities throughout the quaint downtown. Dover is also the perfect place to bring the family. Kids will love the educational, fun trip to the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire and the whole family can enjoy bands and performances in Henry Law Park.
We are proud to be one of the Dover restaurants — serving the best seafood around at affordable prices in a beautiful urban village. Next time you are in Dover, New Hampshire, stop by the Weathervane for some fresh Maine lobster or some of our hand battered haddock. Our fresh seafood options are second to none.
