Crispy calamari was terrific - extremely lightly crispy & tender. Local cod was the best cod I've had - and cod takes a lot to make it interesting!

We had a party of 10 and was told we would have a private room. We were seated in the bar and the noise was awful. If we had been told we would be in the bar, we would have made other arrangements.

Without question, Nell Thorn is the go to restaurant in La Conner AND all of Skagit Valley for an unparalled dining experience. My husband and I just spent a wonderful evening last night enjoying a perfect birthday celebration dinner. I love this restaurant. If a ten star rating was ever offered, I'd give it a ten.

Always an enjoyable dining experience ~ in the dining room, cozy booth in the bar, or on the deck.

Always outstanding! My wife and I do several day trips from Seattle to La Conner every year. Dinning at Nell Thorn has always been awesome! We dine at many of Seattle's best restaurants and firmly believe that Nell Thorn is as good or even better than most.

We travelled from Scottsdale AZ for a business trip and made it a point to drive up from Seattle in order to visit with you. We dined with you 3 years ago and it was so memorable that we had to make a special trip to dine there again.

Love the food. Thanks for getting us in early. Fettuccine was perfect. Lamb cooked right. Chairs aren’t very comfortable. One of our go to restaurants. Thanks

We were a party of five for lunch. We enjoyed our lunch. Everyone thought the food was very good. Three of us had the ploughman’s lunch, one had calamari and one had pot stickers. I especially liked the freshly baked bread and Brie cheese. The service was excellent. We were seated at the table I had reserved in the waterfront dining room. Very pleasant atmosphere.

The receptionist and wait staff weren’t very warm or friendly. The bar tender told us he was way behind so we had to wait ten minutes or Soto even order. (Not his fault; he needs help!) The friendliest and most delightful person was the receptionist when we left. She was very pleasant, chatty and had a great sense of humor. (Tallish blonde, full figure.). She’ll remembet our chat about the elephants.

This is a nice restaurant to celebrate special occasions. The food is very nice and the service is consistently exceptional. My only criticism is that the restaurant is a little too noisy.

I truly enjoy everything about you place with the exception of the chairs in the “garden” ? Room.. They are the most uncomfortable . Every time we dine there I think perhaps this in on purpose, so customers will not overstay. If I could only remember to bring a back pillow I would enjoy my time more.

We loved everything but found the .25 charge for requested Parmesan for the pasta to be petty, leaving a bad taste as we departed
