Crab Eggs Benedict and rosemary potatoes were delightful! Our out of town guests were impressed and enjoyed their time at Nell Thorn. Very nice experience.

One of my guests ordered Caesar salad with salmon. Salmon had to be returned twice in order for it to be cooked. Although we were comped for this meal, the server was very apologetic. I was quite surprised that rather than cooking a new piece each time, they just kept recooking the same piece. It was rather charred by the time it was finally cooked. I have always had great food and will definitely return. It is my favorite restaurant in La Conner. Just need to refine a couple of dishes.

Excellent food combined with great views from backroom seating. We started with bread order and truffle fries, and never had better. Dinner entrees were reasonably priced and generously sized. This will become our go-to stop in La Conner.

Two things- First, I made a mistake when I made the online reservation. My wife called to double check and you caught the mistake and we able to get us in for the slot I thought I had reserved. Thank you! Secondly, this was a dinner for my mom's 80th birthday. She panics over the cost of a tomato so I called and asked if you could print a couple of menus without prices on them for us. This allowed my mom and mother in law to order off of the menu without having a clue about the cost. They both ordered the tenderloin and loved it. Thank you for taking the time to do that for us.

Nell Thorne’s is a waterfront restaurant in LaConner. The atmosphere, food, and service are all very good. I had lunch with four friends in the main waterfront dining room. I ordered beet salad which was excellent. I also had cup of mushroom soup which was a miss for me because it was an overly thick purée & unappealing texture & color. Three of my companions had the quiche & all cleaned their plates, so it must have been good. The fourth companion had a pasta & seafood dish which she enjoyed. We shared an apple pastry with ice cream for dessert .. so good I could’ve eaten it all by myself. Our server was friendly & efficient. Pleasant lunch; pleasant afternoon.

We had a fabulous evening at Nell Thorn. The host, our server, the ambience, the wine, and especially the food all were excellent. We’re still reminiscing about the incredible bread! Thank you for a perfect dinner.
