Ray and Bea Gagner opened their first seafood shack on the coast of Maine in 1969. Since then, the family business has grown to 17 restaurants in Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, featuring fresh lobster, fish and seafood specialties such as fried lobster ravioli. Weathervane recently opened Lobster in the Rough, a seasonal restaurant on Maine’s Badger Island. The newest location serves fresh lobster, a fresh catch of the day and other specials from a waterfront deck.
