This is our second time at your restaurant and both experiences have been very good. Took my Dad for Father's Day and he loved it. Thank you.

While the food and service was excellent, I must say that you have some balls charging $1.00 for one extra olive on a premium vodka on the rocks. Had my server not taken care of this, it would have been my last evening ever at Nell Thorne. It's not the money but the principal as I have NEVER experienced such small mindedness.

Wow! What an unexpected surprise for my birthday celebration at this lovely, delicious restaurant in LaConner. This was my first time there and I’m excited to return so I can try more great looking menu items! Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. I’ve been telling all my friends about this awesome restaurant.

Nell Thorne’s is excellent choice for lunch with friends on a sunny day in LaConner. I ordered a daily special, Caesar salad with fried calamari, and really enjoyed it. A friend, who had soup and salad for lunch, ordered the Caesar salad to take home for dinner. No dessert this time, but the desserts are very good.

Delicious food. Server could have been more friendly and attentive. Let them know it was for my birthday and wasn’t even acknowledged

Excellent food and service but the food was a tad pricey. Two of us ordered halibut for $38. The halibut pieces were small and inconsistent in size, one piece was much larger than the other, and the fish was placed on a tiny portion of veggies. The flavors were awesome but will save Nell Thorn for only special occasion dining.

My sons and I enjoyed our pre-Mother's Day lunch very much. We were unfamiliar with the restaurant, having had lunch at the Calico Cupboard during other LaConner day trips. The only caveat was the portion size of the quiche slice, which was quite small. It was a relief to have the air conditioning on a hot afternoon. Our server gave us just the right amount of attention. Our table was not directly next to the window, but nonetheless, we had a good view of the water from our table.

When our food hadn’t arrived after 40 minutes, I asked our server to check on our order. She immediately came back to say that the printer had jammed and our order hadn’t yet made it to the chefs. She was duly apologetic and offered us a salad and bread to tide us over until our order could be prepared. I know it was just a technical issue and not her fault. We spent an hour and forty minutes at Nell Thorn, and though we loved the food, it does make us think twice about returning.

Need more aoli dressing to go with calamari and more oil and vinegar with bread, shouldn't have to ask for more. Food was great! Service pretty slow but they were nice. Kind of pricey, shouldn't charge for bread, our table of guests all commented about that!
